Helsinki to organize Day camp activities for children during summer

The City of Helsinki, led by mayor Jan Vapaavuori is organising day camp activities for pupils in 1st to 3rd grade at certain playgrounds on weekdays between 9:00 and 16:00. Participation is free of charge and it requires an advance registration on the official Day camps website. Registration for day camps is officially opened.

Each camp will have its own instructor and places for 10 children. Day camp activities are, primarily, organised outdoors. The indoor areas of the playground are reserved for the participants of the day camp.

Summer lunch will also be served in all open playgrounds from 7 June to 10 August.

Special attention is paid to safety during lunch time. City of Helsinki kindly asks to follow the safety instructions of the playground, take care of good hand hygiene and enjoy the meals in small groups. Food will be served at multiple locations at the playground. The staff of the playgrounds will provide everyone with instructions and guidance. Information about practical arrangements of summer lunch will be available on the summer site of the playgrounds.
