New Safety Protocols
Summer day camps will be modified from our typical camps, with a limited number of campers per day and modified activities. Our families’ safety is our top priority and we will take precautionary measures to minimize any risk of COVID-19 exposure (see below for more details). We ask that if your child feels sick do not bring them to camp and if your child has been exposed to someone with Covid-19 that you do not bring your child to camp.
Precautionary measures to limit the potential spread of COVID-19 include:
- All Camp Staff will be trained on the covid-19 specific cleaning and safety protocol.
- Camp staff will have a wellness check and sign a form that confirms their health status every day before the start of their shift.
- Camp Staff will wear masks.
- Increased frequency and intensity of facility/equipment cleanings following Department of Health guidelines for proper sanitation.
- Mandatory hand-washing for campers throughout the day.
- All campers will receive a wellness check at drop-off.
- 2:20 staff-to-kid ratio (no groups larger than 22 including staff).
- Curbside or door-side check-in at all camp locations.
- Modified programming to ensure social distancing by eliminating field trips and limiting sharing of equipment.
- All children age five years and older must wear cloth face coverings while indoors. Children may remove face coverings to eat and drink and when they go outdoors for recess, physical education, or other activities. Listed below are the exemptions for children who should not wear a face covering. If your child qualified for one of these exemptions, please ensure this is documented on your child’s Youth Information Sheet.
- Those with a disability that prevents them from comfortably wearing or removing a face covering.
- Those with certain respiratory conditions or trouble breathing.
- Those who are deaf or hard of hearing and use facial and mouth movements as part of communication.
- Those advised by a medical, legal, or behavioral health professional that wearing a face covering may pose a risk to that person.
- Children may use face shields as an alternative to a cloth face covering. If used, face shields should extend below the chin, to the ears, and have no gap at the forehead. A drape may offer more protection.
