COVID Prevention Plan
Our safety protocols and policies follow local county rules and incorporate recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Policies and procedures are subject to change at any time as guidance evolves to fit the current situation. Registered families will receive updated communications if policies are changed.
Masks and Face Coverings
Masks/face coverings are required when we are indoors. 75% of our camp day will be outside.
Health Screening Participants
We will be utilizing passive screening of campers and volunteers. This means that screening will occur at home before coming to camp each day.
In the last 14 days, has your child or anyone in your household had close contact with someone who has or is suspected of having COVID-19?
In the last 48 hours, has your child experienced any of the following symptoms: Fever (any temperature at or above 99.5 degrees Fahrenheit) Congestion/runny nose Headache Cough Sore throat Difficulty breathing Fatigue/muscle or body aches Loss of taste or smell Gastrointestinal symptoms (nausea, vomiting or diarrhea)
If you answered yes to any of the above questions, please do not send your child to camp.
Cleaning and Sanitation
Hand sanitizer will be available, and regular use will be encouraged. The facility will be thoroughly cleaned daily.
Procedures to Minimize Spread
If a child who tested positive for COVID-19 is identified we will take the following steps:
Notify local health officials.
Notify the parents of those affected.
The camp director will inform those who have had close contact with a person diagnosed with COVID-19 to stay home and self-monitor for symptoms and to follow CDC guidance if symptoms develop. If a person does not have symptoms, CDC guidance for home isolation should be followed.
Campers in the same camp group and volunteers who are in close contact with the affected camper will be asked to stay home 10 days after the last known contact of those affected. We will work with the local health officials to determine appropriate next steps, including whether an extended dismissal duration is needed to stop or slow the further spread of COVID-19.
In the case of a confirmed case, the CDC recommends the child not return until: Authorization by a medical professional OR symptoms have improved AND at least 24 hours have passed fever free which is defined as resolution of fever without the use of fever-reducing medication.
