SUMMER CAMP 2021 SAFETY GUIDELINES
When your kids are in our care, safety is always top of mind. It’s also more important than ever to have a plan to keep everyone healthy so we can fully enjoy the summer. Below you will find some of the plans and safety measures we have in place for this summer.
- The summer program will be held outdoors in Inwood Hill Park with some activities in Isham Park as well. We will be staying OUTSIDE rain or shine for the entirety of camp. Please dress your kids appropriately for the weather and apply sunscreen prior to arrival.
- The Camp Supervisor is responsible for deciding if the program should be delayed or cancelled for the day due to poor weather. The possible reasons are detailed below:
|Weather Conditions||Reasons to Continue||Reason to Delay/Cancel|
|Rain||Light to moderate rain, appropriate clothing.||Continuous heavy rain, unsuitable clothing.|
|Thunder & Lightning||Low thunder, clear skies.||Persistent thunder, visible lightning, severe storms.|
|Wind||Light wind, open or sheltered space for activity||Local high wind warning|
|Heat||Moderate heat, weather appropriate clothing and activity in cool, shaded areas.||Extreme temperatures with heat index above 95 F for extended time.|
- There will be 2 instructors with the group and a camp supervisor on-site at all times.
- Staff, campers and visitors will be required to use well-fitting masks with the exception of lunch, snack & water play.
- The group will maintain a physical distance of at least 3 ft. between campers, 6 ft. between group and all park-goers outside of the program, at least 6 ft. while eating and drinking, and at least 6 ft. between staff & campers.
- Parents and non-essential visitors will not be permitted in the activity space.
- There will be a designated no-contact area for pick-ups and drop-offs. We ask that parents maintain a distance of 6 feet from one another in this area.
- Participants should use the restroom prior to arrival and wash hands before and after camp. Hand sanitizer will be provided on-site and we will take supervised bathroom breaks using park restrooms.
- Equipment will be cleaned/disinfected regularly.
- Games, toys, and other personal items from home will not be permitted, with the exception of sunscreen, personal water bottles, and lunch. All items from home must be labeled with child’s name. Please provide your child with a full water bottle to start the day, we will refill as needed.
- We will conduct respectful, daily health checks for staff & campers.
- Staff and participants should stay home if they have tested positive for or are showing COVID-19 symptoms. If a child has symptoms of COVID-19 or has a positive diagnostic test, the child must isolate and may not attend the program until: • It has been at least 10 days from symptom onset, with the last three days fever-free (without use of fever-reducing medicine) and an overall reduction in symptoms. • If no symptoms, 10 days from the date they were tested.
- Staff and participants who are not fully vaccinated and have recently had close contact with a person with COVID-19 should also stay home and monitor their health. All close contacts must stay home for 10 days from the last contact with the individual who has COVID-19, including if another person in the household has had symptoms or has tested positive.
We will continue to review local guidelines and best practices and will make updates as needed to ensure that we are providing the safest program possible for everyone involved.
