COVID-19: Camper/ Camp Families Expectations
While camp will look a little different this year, what won’t change is our commitment to providing a fun and engaging experience that will provide opportunities for your child to explore the outdoors, unleash their creativity, and release their energy!

We need your help to keep our programs open! All registered participants and their families are expected to abide by the ODH/ODJFS/Governor's Orders, including the following Covid-19 Safety Protocols.

1. Health Assessment: All parents/guardians are asked to do a health assessment of their child prior to arrival each day. Please keep your child home if they exhibit any symptoms of Covid-19.
2. Outdoor Check-In/Out: Parents/guardians will check in/out their child(ren) outside, weather permitting. Access to the indoor classroom will be limited to staff and campers.

4. Face Masks: Face masks are required for all campers when (1) inside and (2) outside and unable to maintain 6 feet of social distance. Parents/guardians are asked to wear a mask during the check-in/out process. If medically unable to wear a face mask, a face shield that extends below the chin may be used.
5. Hand Sanitizing: Campers will be required to sanitize their hands upon arrival and prior to departure. Increased hand washing/sanitizing will be done throughout the camp day.

Medical Conditions (Allergies, Medications, etc)
  • Your child's safety is important to us. Please be sure to include all medical conditions (ex: allergies, asthma, dietary restrictions, medications) that you feel we should be aware of on your child's account information. This will be pulled into your child's registration so that our staff may review it prior to camp.
  • Changes made on your account to your child's medical information must be made by the Wednesday prior to camp. Please notify the Camp Director if you make a change after the Wednesday prior to camp so that our rosters can be updated.
  • Deerfield Township staff are not permitted to administer medication. If your child needs medication during program hours, staff may hold the medication until the child asks for it. Staff can not be responsible for reminding children of medication times or the administration of any medication.
  • Deerfield Township values all children. If your child needs special assistance during program hours, please speak with our Camp Director so that we may work together to determine feasible accommodations and to ensure a positive experience for your child.

The Optional Release for Youth 12 Years and Older must be submitted to the Camp Director at least 3 business days prior to the first day of camp. Youth without this signed release are required to be picked up by an authorized adult.
