Summer Camp Guidelines and Safety Tips

We want all campers to enjoy their visit and be safe. We’ve evaluated each summer camp to determine if the curriculum allows for ample social distancing and minimal supply sharing while ensuring that campers have fun, memorable, and enriching experiences.

The capacity of the camps that are currently scheduled to take place this season has been greatly reduced to ensure safe social distancing, therefore there are a limited number of spaces available in them.

Per guidelines by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:

 

All summer campers and staff must wear face masks over their nose and mouth.

 

Handwashing and hand sanitizing stations are readily available; campers will receive proper hygiene  encouragement.

Campers’ temperatures will be taken upon arrival using a no-touch thermometer.  Children with a temperature of 100.4 degrees or higher will not be allowed to participate in camp for the safety of others.  Parents or legal guardians will be encouraged to be on the alert for signs of illness in their children and keep them home when they are sick.

Each room and camp capacity allow at least six feet between campers or 25% capacity.

What we are doing:

  • Requiring all campers and staff to wear face masks covering their nose and mouth
  • Parents sign a waiver to confirm that camper and members of their household are not sick
  • Temperature checks for camp staff and campers
  • Separate sick children from well children until they can be sent home
  • Gloves readily available upon request
  • Drop off and pick up locations spread out to various locations (color coded)
  • Rooms and lunch area set up to maintain proper social distancing guidelines
  • Instead of keeping all camper lunches together in a bin as we've done previously, campers can store their lunches separately and away from other camp lunches
  • Each room will have hand sanitizer readily available
  • Each room will be properly cleaned and sanitized at least twice a day
  • Rooms and materials sanitized at least twice daily
  • Surfaces sanitized as needed during instruction
  • Water fountains closed
  • Canceled 4-5-year-old camps
  • Canceled camps with field trip component
  • Canceled camps unable to modify with more group-focused activities

These protocols are recommended by the PA Department of Health and the US Centers for Disease Control.

Important Safety Tips:

  • Wash your hands often.
  • Cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing with a tissue or your elbow.
  • Throw used tissues in the trash.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Avoid close contact – keep 6 feet between yourself and others.
  • Wear a cloth face cover (mask).

It is everyone’s responsibility to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to themselves and to others.
