2021 Health & Wellness Addendum
Please note that our safety protocols may change as the situation and requirements change. We are committed to effective communication and will notify parents/guardians via email regarding any changes, as well as updating impacted guidelines on this webpage.
As part of our mission to provide a safe, supportive environment, we have adjusted our 2021 program as follows:
1. Health Assessment: All parents/guardians are asked to do a health assessment of their child if they are showing signs or symptoms of illness. Please keep your child home if they have a fever of 100 degrees Fahrenheit or above, or if they exhibit signs and symptoms of illness.
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.
3. 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.
Campers, parents, and staff are welcome to wear a mask if they prefer and camp staff will support each individual's decision. If a camper prefers to wear a mask, it is highly recommended that parents/guardians send 1-2 extra masks to camp each day. We will be active and your child will be more comfortable if they can switch to a clean/dry mask when needed.
