Modified summer program delivery options to be released

New program offerings will maintain summer fun for children and youth while ensuring safety


Lincoln ON - (Friday, June 12, 2020) - The Town of Lincoln recognizes the important role that summer programming plays for families in our community and have been closely monitoring the evolving and complex situation with respect to the Covid-19 pandemic and potential programming impacts.  The Town continues to follow provincial public health orders and is working locally with Niagara Region Public Health to determine best practices for safe operation. 

The health and safety of our program participants, staff and public remains our top priority. The Town has determined that we are unable to deliver previously planned summer programming in the same capacity.  This includes summer day camps, aquatic classes and cultural programming.  Town staff have developed plans for modified summer programming at reduced capacity. 
 

Program Refunds & New Registration

All currently registered summer program participants will receive a full refund.   Refunds will be automatically processed.  Online payments will be refunded to the credit card used for original payment.  Any other forms of payment will be refunded by cheque and sent by mail.  Any post-dated cheques will be returned by mail.  Please allow up to 30 days for processing.

A new registration period will be opened for modified summer programming.   Registration spots will be limited and any existing registrations will not be rolled over.  Priority registration for Lincoln residents will commence on Monday June 22, 2020.  Registration for the general public will commence on Monday June 29, 2020.  Registration will be available online and via phone.
 

New Programming Options

Town staff are proud to offer a variety of program delivery methods this summer including in-person, virtual and curbside pick-up options.  New program details will be released on Monday June 15, 2020.  The Town continues to remain vigilant and is focusing on supporting community recovery efforts from the pandemic.
