SCREENING AND ILLNESS PROCEDURES

  • In the event a camper registers a fever of 100.0 F or higher during the day, or begins displaying symptoms associated with COVID-19, a parent and/or emergency contact will be notified immediately.  

FACE COVERINGS

  • Masks will be required for all staff members and campers rising Kindergarten and older while indoors. While encouraged for younger students, it is not a requirement.  
  • Masks may be removed during outdoor activities. 
  • Campers are asked to provide their own masks, however, disposable ones will be accessible in the event of an emergency. 
  • Gaiters/buffs and bandanas are not allowed to be worn on campus. Additionally, any face covering which has an exhalation valve is prohibited.

GROUPS AND DISTANCING

  • Campers, as much as possible, will remain cohorted weekly by grade level.  Known exceptions include campers enrolled in morning enrichment camps. In the event campers are mixed with different age groups, masks will be worn at all times.

  • Weekly Day Camp students will be provided with individual basic supplies (scissors, crayers, markers, glue, etc.) that will be utilized for activities throughout the day. Supplies will be stored in an individual container for each camper. 
  • All HVAC units on campus are equipped with air purification systems that use a technology known as Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization (NPBI).
