Public Service Announcement
2021 Summer Recreation Program
Information for the Public
Release Date: June 28, 2021
The Town of Happy Valley-Goose Bay advises the public that it is closely monitoring information related to the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). As the Province has moved to Alert Level 2, the Town of Happy Valley-Goose Bay is pleased to inform the community that after careful review and consideration, and in keeping with Public Health Guidelines set out by the Provincial Chief Medical Officer of Health, the Town’s Department of Community Services & Recreation will be offering a modified Summer Recreation Program for Summer 2021.
Our first objective is to ensure that the Town is following all recommended guidelines to reduce the risk of Covid-19. Therefore, the number of participants that will be attending the program daily will be significantly reduced. However, we aim to offer an opportunity to as many children as possible. Current guidelines dictate that priority service should be given to children of working parents/guardians.
The Town of Happy Valley-Goose Bay Summer Recreation Program will be offered in four separate Camps.
***Online Registration for Camp #1 and Camp #2 will start on July 1, 2021, at 9:00 AM at the following link:
Camp #1 will start on Tuesday, July 6, 2021 and end Friday, July 16, 2021. We will be accepting 20 participants for this two-week Camp (number will be re-assessed on an operational requirement and based on COVID-19 Alert Level after the first week of Camp).
Camp #2 will take place from July 19 to July 30, 2021 (Monday to Friday). We will accept 20 different participants (unless demand allows for children from Camp #1 to return).
***Online Registration for Camp #3 and Camp #4 will start on Monday, July 26, 2021, at 9:00 AM at the following link:
Camp #3 will take place from August 2 to August 13, 2021 (Monday to Friday). We will accept 20 different participants (unless demand allows for children from previous Camp(s) to return).
Camp #4 will take place from August 16 to August 20, 2021 (Monday to Friday). We will accept 20 different participants (unless demand allows for children from previous Camp(s) to return).

These unprecedented measures, though unfortunate, are necessary to be proactive against the potential spread of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), and the Town of Happy Valley-Goose Bay extends thanks to the public for their understanding at this time. Council and Staff appreciate your understanding during this time of uncertainty. We look forward to offering a Summer Recreation Program to our community’s youth.
In consultation with officials at Labrador Grenfell Health and guidance released by the Provincial Chief Medical Officer of Health, the 12th Council of Happy Valley-Goose Bay, Management, and Staff will continue to monitor updates relating to the pandemic and update residents regularly.
The Town of Happy Valley-Goose Bay strongly recommends that residents and businesses continue to utilize a cautious approach and exercise recommended practices to help prevent the potential spread of COVID-19.
