Camp and Covid - 19 Protocol
What if we need to cancel our plans this summer?
If we cancel programs due to the pandemic, or if you need to cancel within two weeks of your child's camp due to its presence in your community, potential exposure, or due to travel restrictions, we will cancel your registration. If a camper cancels due to other reasons, we will follow our normal cancellation policy.
Camp Systems and Hygiene
We already have systems that prevent the spread of illnesses through our facility. This includes educating and promoting thorough hand washing or use of hand sanitizer when washing isn’t an option. Rooms are cleaned daily with multiple scheduled sanitizations of classroom surfaces and doorknobs. Use of Lysol wipes on toilets, door handles, sinks, vehicles, and other surfaces is done frequently.
Additionally, our instructors will be diligent about having campers use hand sanitizer off site, before and after lunches and snack times or if they have touched shared program materials.
What about Physical distancing?
Understandably, social and physical distancing is challenging in a summer camp setting. Luckily most of our programming occurs outdoors and can be easily adjusted to accommodate. Our small group sizes aids us in this regard and we will be following the school protocol of daily temperature checks, social distancing as much as possible, sitting and eating apart.
