In compliance with the guidelines of the Ontario Government, School Boards and Public Health Professionals, we at VOV have made the tough decision to cancel our 2020 on-site Summer Camp scheduled for July 20 th to July 31 st . While the community – the students, teachers, parents, counselors and volunteers – look forward to this niche annual camp to connect, engage, build friendships and learn; we must adhere to the protocol of physical and social distancing for everyone’s safety.

Behind the fear and threats brought about by the Coved 19, opportunities have also arisen and we, at VOV have pooled our resources and strengths collaboratively to develop and offer your children online interactive and engaging options in lieu of the 2020 physical on-site Summer Camp. We are very excited for this opportunity to adapt to the new norm, to still be able to learn in fun safe way, to stay connected and maintain our good relations.

We promise online interactive workshop type sessions lead by our qualified facilitators that are time appropriate for the young minds to grab and engage their attention span. The themes will continue to be aligned with Hindu values and culture; including sessions on dharmic values, yoga, breathing, meditation, singing, instruments, dancing, cooking and crafts. The July 20 th to July 31 st date remains the same and a schedule will be sent by the end of June with the various sessions offered, times and costs of each sessions.

Update on VOV 2020 Summer Camp:

Namaste Parents:

With the Covid-19 pandemic, we are facing a universal problem of anxieties, troubles and the fear of the unknown!

It goes without saying that the planned VOV Summer Camp scheduled for July 20th – July 31st is a concern for every parent.   Will it happen?

We do have your interest at hand.

We will provide plenty of notice once we can responsibly notify you of any upcoming changes or cancellations.

Our goal is to keep you informed about our plans and hopefully by the end of May we will have an answer for everyone.

In the meantime, stay safe, the best to everyone and thanks for your patience.
