Newsletter: September 1st, 2020

A letter to our residents:

There is no question that 2020 will be a memorable year, full of changes to our work, our children’s education, and how we spend our free time. During the winter, while we were busy rebuilding bathrooms and reinvesting in our parks, we never dreamed that we actually might be prevented from opening them! Certainly a situation that was never accounted and caused a great deal of uncertainty for our staff and our customers. As Labour day fast approaches and we reflect on this season, we are incredibly proud of the decisions we have made and that, with the support of our loyal customers and staff, we have made it through this summer safely and with minimal disruptions. 

One of the most difficult decisions that was made this year was to cancel and refund all overnight tenting and RV reservations. As we entered into Stage 2 and camping was permitted, we still didn’t feel comfortable with the enormous influx of new guests into the park especially with restricted pool capacity. Shutting down over 60 overnight sites came with a substantial revenue loss for 2020 but created a much quieter, private park that we hope you enjoyed as much as we did this summer. 

As we reflect on this summer and look forward to the years ahead, both Morgan and I feel that a resort without the chaos of “tent city” is a much better path forward. After positive feedback from many residents, it seems like most of you would agree. Future plans include considering a goal for Cedar Beach Resort to be a fully private facility, only accessible to the residents invested in the park. As we strive to continually push the park into a calm, relaxing place for you to spend your summer, we will be transforming the tenting area into 23 new seasonal sites. The future of the transient sites on Maple Lane and Merry Run are still under review as we discuss possibilities for this area. 

After years of capital improvements, a lot of the bigger projects are now behind us. With substantial investments in building the Fishbone deck, the new retaining wall on the beach, new playgrounds, newly renovated bathrooms throughout, much needed laundry facilities, ongoing asphalt upgrades, and continue site improvements, the park looks very different than it did 10 years ago. Other infrastructure upgrades, such as sewer and water system improvements, have led to less service interruptions for you. It has been transformed from the campground it once was, to a resort that Morgan and I are proud of.

We are now at a point where we are able to begin to improve the smaller things, which would bring the park up to an even higher standard. Project ideas include an overhaul of the North Shelter and installation of a pump-track to engage kids between the ages of 12 to 17 years old as we recognize a gap in structure for that age group. As we strive to continue to improve, more exciting changes are ahead. 

Once again, Morgan and I would like to thank all of you for sticking with us through these challenging times. Hard to believe that we’ll be celebrating Labour Day this coming weekend in the absence of mitts full of corn and blazing fireworks, but rest assured there is going to be one heck of a firework show as soon as we get on the other side of this terrible virus. 

Stay safe, be kind, and enjoy the last few weeks of summer.

2021 Renewals

It's that time of year again! Renewals for 2021 will be accepted starting Tuesday September 1, 2020 and the deadline is Tuesday September 15th, 2020. Please be sure that you have completed the 2021 License of Occupation and Schedule 1 and that your account balance is cleared up prior to coming to pay the renewal.  Hardcopies of the paperwork are available in the office and a PDF is available online at www.cedarbeach.ca. You can also fill out the LOO online and submit it by clicking here. Be sure to read through it carefully as it is packed with rules, regulations, and information regarding your seasonal reservation with us. There have been several policy changes and it’s important you make yourself aware of these updates!

Notable policy changes include:
  • winter storage is now $1,000.00 for those who choose to cancel their renewal in the spring
  • an Etiquette section has been added
The renewal fee is $565.00 and can be paid by cheque, debit, or cash. If the paperwork and renewal payment is not received by the deadline, there is no guarantee your site will be held for you. Renewals received after September 15th will be subject to a late fee of $5.00 per day. 

When you fill out your 2021 LOO, please record your key fob numbers where asked. Any key fobs that are not written there will not be activated for next year. Please only write up to 3 key fobs numbers for now!

For those who have decided not to join us for another year, please let us know sooner than later! You will have until October 31st 2020 to remove all your property from the site (this includes decks, sheds, the trailer, etc.). If you pay your renewal, but your circumstances change over the winter and you decide to cancel your 2021 reservation, you must give us written notice by April 1st 2021. You will then have up to two weeks after the posted road open date to remove all your property. 
Our goal for renewals this year was to put out a projection of what the next three season fees will look like. Unfortunately, with the current situation, it’s hard to predict even what the next month will bring! Hopefully we will have a better idea in the spring and be able to give more information then.
Remember, if you paid your season fee by June 1st this year, you will not be subject to an increase! Your 2021 season fee will be the same as what you paid for the 2020 season.

The last day to enjoy the swimming pools is September 7th! Be sure to say goodbye to lifeguards Vippy, Bryan, Katie, Rebecca, Abigayle, and Madison. Big thanks to our team for a great summer!

We are accepting applications for the 2021 season!

If you or someone you know might be interested in joining us for next season, send us an email for more information!

Have a great weekend!
Stay safe and stay healthy.
