The CDC defines a “Stable Camp Group” as a group of the same individuals including counselors, staff, and children with a 15-person max, that remains in the same group each day. Campers will remain with the same group and occupy the same spaces daily. Campers within stable groups are permitted to engage and play with one another but will be encouraged to practice social distancing where possible.
CLEANING & SANITIZATION PROCEDURE
While much of the camp is spent doing outdoor activities, we currently use cleaning products and protocols which meet EPA guidelines and are CDC approved for use and are effective against viruses, bacteria and other airborne and blood-borne pathogens, we will increase cleaning and sanitation of all areas, with a focus on "high-touch" areas including railings, handles, counters, restrooms, tables, chairs, doorknobs, storage areas, restrooms, play equipment, lifeguard stations, food-service areas, or tools needed for certain activities.
STAFFING & TRAINING
Staff will be trained on proper COVID-19 cleaning and hygiene protocols for both the staff and campers. Including but not limited to using or removing PPE equipment, proper hygiene, social distancing, and other best practices. Staff will be trained on proper cleaning, sanitizing, and handwashing protocols and will ensure campers wash or sanitize their hands before and after eating or drinking, after touching any bodily fluid, after sneezing, coughing, or blowing nose, after restroom use, before and after water park time, after messy play and upon entry from the outdoors.
Staff Illness – Alternate park staff will be available should staff become ill during or before their shift. The same protocols apply to clean and isolation.
Campers will be encouraged to maintain Social Distancing from other all other park guests and staff while moving around the facility. Campers will have private access to the water park at least once daily with private entrance. Campers will have access to private areas away from other guests and staff including private base camp, bathroom facilities, and private pool time.
Campers will be encouraged to:
- Always cover your mouth & nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow. Throw used tissues in the trash.
- Wash Hands often with soap & water or with 60% alcohol-based sanitizer. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
All campers, counselors, parents & Staff are required to wear a face-covering at all times while indoors and moving around the park. Masks may not be required on outdoor hikes or other activities. Masks must be stored while swimming or sliding.
SWIMMING & ACTIVITIES
Activities have been carefully re-planned to allow for proper distancing, cleaning, and sanitizing. Campers will not be required to wear masks during outdoor activities while they can maintain distance. Water park time will be held in-between public sessions to allow for private access to pools & slides up to two times daily.
Pool & Spa Guidelines Provided by the Centers for Disease Control
“There is no evidence that the virus that causes COVID-19 can be spread to people through the water in pools, hot tubs, spas, or water play areas. Proper operation and maintenance (including disinfection with chlorine and bromine) of these facilities should inactivate the virus in the water."
Our programs do not permit campers to bring toys, electronic equipment, radios, iPods/mp3 players, cards/games, personal sports equipment, weapons, pets, or alcohol/drugs. Personal phones must be stored in silent unless needed for emergencies.
Behavior & Conduct
All campers are expected to abide by our code of conduct. The code of conduct must be reviewed and signed by each camper. Team members will always notify parents of emerging difficulties and ask for assistance in behavior management. In some cases, additional disciplinary measures may be pursued if: a child inflicts physical/emotional harm on other children; is a danger to themselves or others; or is physically or verbally abusive to counselors and/or others. Those cases apply to the following: Endangering the health and/or safety of another camper, staff member, any other person, stealing or damaging property, leaving the program area without permission, use of profanity, vulgar or obscene actions or words or touching of themselves or another; bullying, mocking, or any other actions that make another camper uncomfortable.
Written notification must be received no later than 10 days in advance of the first day of camp. A full refund will be issued minus a $15.00 administrative fee. Otherwise, you will be responsible to pay that week’s tuition in-full, regardless of attendance.
We urge you to keep children home if they are ill, both for their sake and the sake of other children. If a child is feeling ill during the program for a duration of 20 minutes or longer, or is vomiting, has diarrhea, a consistent cough, watery or inflamed eyes, acute skin rash, a sore throat, or a temperature over 100°, the Supervisor will contact the parent for immediate pickup. There are no refunds for days missed due to illness.
Indoor spaces are available at our camp. In the case of extreme heat or rain/thunder/lightning activities are modified. The water park may be closed, but camp will still be held. Camp schedule will vary depending on weather and pre-scheduled activities. On warmer days physical and outdoor activities may be reserved for the 'cooler' part of the day. A private camp room inside that serves as a home base for camp.
