Our team is dedicated to making this summer the best summer ever for our campers and their families. We feel as now, more than ever, we play a key role in helping our campers learn to have fun in our new normal. We have carefully worked through each aspect of our camp day to implement an even higher standard of health and safety. Please continue reading below to find out in detail the precautions that you will see when your child attends camp this summer.
Campers will be in groups of 10 with their counselor, with a maximum of 11 individuals per group.
Campers will have their temperatures checked when they arrive at camp in the morning as they get out of their car and then again at lunchtime. If a camper develops a temperature at any time during the day, after their initial temperature check, they will be held in a private area with a director until a parent arrives to pick them up.
Groups will be kept consistent throughout the week, campers will not mix between groups. Groups will have the opportunity to play some large group games together that allow groups to stay in groups in separate areas but still interact. We always ask parents to partner with us to ensure that campers understand what they will be experiencing throughout the day.
Campers will be washing hands between each activity or every other activity (based on length) our activities last a maximum of 45 minutes. This meets the standard of a maximum of 2hrs between hand washing.
Campers will be asked to wear masks when social distancing cannot be maintained. Our goal is to allow campers to play freely unmasked when outdoors and in any other distanced situation. We also know when campers are in close contact while playing chess, working on science projects, creating artwork, or any other close contact activity, it does not allow for proper ventilation and masks are necessary.
We will be alternating taking offsite and onsite field trips. When we take our offsite field trips we will be taking charter buses to our local venues. Our onsite field trips will be provided by engaging partners that bring fun and interactive experiences to us. During the weeks that we have onsite field trips, we will also have an inflatable on Fridays.
Campers will complete art, science, chess, snack, and lunch in their individual groups.
Each group will have access to a set of sports equipment and board games that have been sanitized.
Each group will have a group set of art supplies that are cleaned for their use.
We will have as many activities as possible outside. We ask that campers come dressed appropriately in their Kid-Possible tech tee, shorts, and closed-toed shoes. Campers are also encouraged to wear a baseball cap.
All of our snacks are prepackaged and will continue this way. We typically serve individual ice cream cones after the Talent Show on Friday!
Campers will be asked to bring their own water bottle to camp. We will have water stations set-up to assist campers in refilling their bottles.
We will be cleaning with a solution that has been cleared by the EPA to be an effective disinfectant against Sars-Cov-2. Cleaning will be done with a fogger which has been shown to be extremely effective for cleaning large areas.
Our weekly Talent Shows that campers love will still be performed in our smaller groups and will be streamed via Zoom for parents to see. To prevent a large group gathering.
Parents will be asked to stay in their cars when visiting our sites. Our phone numbers will be posted and you are always welcome to call and we will be available to assist you. We would like to prevent our outside exposure as much as possible and although we love our parents, we find this a necessary step for safety.
