New Safety Protocols
Summer day camps will be modified from our typical camps, with a limited number of campers per day and modified activities. The safety of our families is our top priority and we will take precautionary measures to minimize any risk of COVID-19 exposure. If your child feels sick or has been exposed to someone with COVID-19, please do not bring them to camp.
Precautionary measures to limit the potential spread of COVID-19 include:
For Camp Staff
- 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 face coverings at all times.
- 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.
- Reduced group sizes.
- 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.
- Face Shields: In rare circumstances when a cloth face covering cannot be worn, children and staff may use a clear face covering or a face shield with a drape as an alternative to a cloth face covering. Face shields should extend below the chin, to the ears, and have no gap at the forehead.
- Children may remove face coverings to eat and drink and when they can be physically distanced outside. If children need a “mask break,” they will be taken outside or to a large, well-ventilated room where there is sufficient space to ensure more than six feet of physical distance between people
- Listed below are cloth face covering exemptions for children. If your child qualifies for one of these exemptions, please ensure it is documented on your child’s Youth Information Sheet.
- Those with a disability that prevents them from comfortably wearing or removing a cloth 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 cloth face covering may pose a risk to that person.
