HAPPY, HEALTHY CAMPERS

Summer Day CampThursday, June 25, 2020

After a long spring cooped up indoors, kids are excited for Summer Day Camp. But, summer this year is unlike any we’ve experienced before and you likely have added concerns for your children’s health and safety.

We fully understands your fears. Camp will look different this year, so it’s important to make sure you and your children are prepared. We've modified our camp plans to ensure kids can be outside, safely connect with each other, and have a fun summer to remember.

Here are five frequently asked questions to help highlight some of our changes:

1. How are staff prepared to properly maintain a safe environment?

All of our camp counselors and staff have been trained to deliver a safe Summer Day Camp experience based on guidance from the CDC and the American Camping Association.

2. What are the cleaning protocols?

Camp staff will be maintaining cleaning standards and campers may be asked to pitch in, too. Help get kids on board by practicing hand washing and other safety measures at home. Campers/staff may wear masks, but it is not required.

To help prevent the spread of illness, we will:

  • Practice frequent handwashing and avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth with our hands.
  • Provide visual aids reminding of proper hand washing and hygiene procedures.
  • Keep each child’s belongings separated and in individually labeled containers/cubbies or send them home each day to be cleaned.
  • Discourage children from bringing extra toys or materials from home.
  • Arrange furnishings to allow for at least 6 feet of distance whenever possible.
  • Disinfect doors/cabinets, hard surfaces (including eating surfaces), bathroom/changing areas, and playground equipment on a daily basis.
  • Clean high traffic areas and high-touched surfaces on a regular and more frequent basis.
3. How will activities follow CDC and local agency requirements?

All of our sites will be operating up to their licensed capacity and campers will be grouped by age in order to maintain the following ratios:

  • 1:6 for 4-year-olds
  • 1:12 for ages 5-6
  • 1:18 for ages 7 & up.

Groups will have a regularly assigned counselor responsible for the children’s well-being. Physical distancing within groups will be followed and groups will not comingle whenever possible. Use of communal spaces will be staggered and disinfected in-between use.

4. What screening procedures are in place?

We ask that you please take your child's temperature in the morning at home. Upon arriving at camp, please confirm with our camp staff that there is no illness and no medication has been given to suppress a fever. Our staff will also complete a visual health inspection.

5. What is the policy surrounding campers or staff who show signs of illness or fever?

Children and staff should not be at camp with a temperature of 100.4 or above, or other symptoms. Staff and children’s health will be monitored daily.

If a child becomes ill while at camp, we'll provide an isolated space for child to rest while waiting for arrival of a parent/guardian. A staff member will stay with the child while awaiting parent/guardian’s arrival.

If you're still deciding whether Summer Day Camp is right for your child, we encourage you to reach out to our Camp Directors so that we can properly address your concerns.
