Bellamy Park 2020 Season

Electronic Copy of May 22nd Letter

May 22, 2020

Dear Bellamy Park Camper:

At the time of this letter, seasonal campgrounds continue to be excluded from the Province of Ontario’s list of essential workplaces.  The Township’s Emergency Control Group (ECG) continues to monitor announcements with the objective of opening Bellamy Park as soon as safely possible.  Currently, the Township is maintaining a tentative late June reopening.

The Province of Ontario has recently expanded on what activities can be conducted on a seasonal campground.  Under Seasonal Campgrounds section 3.1 (d) of the List of Essential Workplaces reads “other areas of the seasonal campground are closed to the general public and are only opened for the purpose of preparing the seasonal campground for reopening”.  In response to this announcement, the Bellamy Park Manager has prepared an “Opening Plan” which will be reviewed by the Bellamy Park Management Board at their upcoming virtual meeting next week.

At this time, access to Bellamy Park to check on sites continues to be offered through appointment only.  Appointments can be arranged by emailing bellamypark@ektwp.ca, or by calling and leaving a voicemail with the Township Offices at 613-345-7480 or 613-283-2277.  Please do not call the campground directly.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at yrobert@ektwp.ca or leave a message at 613-345-7480 ext. 37.

Thank you for your understanding.  We will keep you informed of any changes and look forward to welcoming you back to Bellamy Park.

Sincerely yours,
Yvonne L. Robert, AMCT, AOMC, CMO
Administrator-Clerk

 


Electronic Copy of April 6th Letter

April 6, 2020

Dear Bellamy Park Camper:

As all of you are aware, the world is combatting COVID-19.  This is no different for our own community.  Since early March, the Township’s Emergency Control Group has been meeting to discuss what actions are required in order to ‘flatten the curve’, slow the spread of the virus so that our medical community does not become overwhelmed as it has been in other areas.

As many of you probably already know, the Province of Ontario has closed all parks and beaches within the province with the exception of trails.  The ECG considered this information as well as information we obtained from other cottage associations and have made the hard decision to postpone the Bellamy Park Campground opening until June 26th, 2020, subject to change due to the COVID-19 progression.  Please note that camping fees will be adjust in accordance with this direction.  

Speaking of fees, it was also determined that the deadline for 2020 deposit refunds has been extended to April 30th, 2020.  If you do request a refund, please email mail@ektwp.ca

With the Park being closed to everyone but staff, those who are cancelling their season or  those who wish to check on their site, you will be required to email bellamypark@ektwp.ca to set up an appointment.  This will ensure that everyone remains as safe as possible during this emergency.  Anyone who attempts to enter the Park without an appointment will be seen as trespassing and the Township will act accordingly to ensure the safety of all.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to email me at yrobert@ektwp.ca or leave a message at 613-345-7480, extension 37.

Thank you for your understanding and we hope that you and your family are doing well.

Sincerely yours,

Yvonne L. Robert, AMCT, AOMC,CMO
