Saguenay: reopening of Patro in the special conditions

Saguenay: réouverture du Patro dans des conditions particulières

The summer day camp of the Patro de Jonquière, Saguenay, opened its doors Monday morning, but had to make a few changes to comply with the sanitary rules.

As early as 8: 30am, an hour before the activities start, the queue was already important to the field of play.

Due to the pandemic, the public health directorate has imposed a significant number of changes.

The camp hosts this year 350 children, divided on two sites, while it was 900 years earlier.

Since then, the activities had to be adjusted.

“Musical chairs, for example: we can not fly the chair of another, we leave a certain period of time,” explained the director general of the Patro, Yanick Gagnon.

Even how to intervene with a child is injured or crying was also reviewed.

“We can no longer take children in his arms. They should be brought to the infirmary, or don the protective equipment,” continued Mr. Gagnon.

“Yes, there are restrictions, but the challenge remains the same: that the children have fun!” he, however, required to add.

The City of Saguenay, will open its own summer day camps next week.
