The Boys and Girls Club of Ottawa summer camp program is cancelled this year, due to COVID-19, so it's finding new ways to keep kids engaged.
In a video posted on Twitter, Camp Smitty manager Matt Singer said the cancellation is very sad news for everyone.
However, camp says it will be posting virtual activities to the club's website all summer long.
