COVID-19 Lockdown Info

We’re Open!

Toronto’s recently announced lockdown will affect a large number of non-essential services, however certain essential services have been exempted including schools, before & after school programs, and child-care services.

As an after-school program based out of the Giles School, Bot Camp does fall into this exemption category. The official release from the Province of Ontario can be found here:

As always, we are committed to providing the safest experience possible at Bot Camp. Our programs will continue to operate with our COVID-19 protocols in place, based on the Hospital of Sick Children’s guidelines for the re-opening of schools.

Our protocol includes, but is not limited to:

  • limit of 8 students maximum
  • 1:1 student to robot ratio
  • no sharing of parts, computers, or controllers
  • non-contact body temperature screening of all students and staff
  • mandatory face-masks for all students and staff*
  • mandatory hand sanitization when entering & exiting the lab
  • transparent isolation guards between individual student desks
  • all parts, equipment and contact surfaces disinfected with benzalkonium chloride prior to individual student use
