-All common areas including but not limited to the sign-in/out table, camper storage cubbies, bathrooms, common tables and chairs will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected daily and spot cleaned multiple times a day.

-Campers will be asked to bring their own personal sports equipment to be used on a regular basis. However, when common sports equipment, craft supplies, or other common items are used those will be cleaned and disinfected on a daily basis.

 

-Area Cleaning Logs will be placed in each pavilion and monitored keeping safe and efficient cleaning standards accomplished by the staff routinely.
Diligence by all: staff and campers are key in helping us keep camp safe for everyone.

CUSTOMER RESPONSIBILITY

  • It is every camper family's responsibility to self-monitor. If you, a family member, or anyone living in your household is ill or shows signs or symptoms known to be associated with COVID19 (see below), please DO NOT come to camp.

  • Parents or caretakers are required to call before 8:30am to report all late or absent campers who are registered for that day. Parents MUST give details as to their child’s symptoms. Our camp director will follow-up with all families whose child has potential symptoms of COVID-19.

  • Face coverings: Per ODJFS  & CDC guidelines face coverings are no longer required.  Face coverings are encouraged for unvaccinated populations. It is up to each family to determine if they would like their children to wear face coverings when their camper is not able to keep socially distant. This may occur when campers are under the open air pavilions.

DROP OFF & PICK UP

·     All parents dropping off need to remain in their vehicles and a staff member will come to your vehicle for camper sign-in.  Please follow the guidelines for the time of drop off by last names. This is critical to ensure efficient drop-off procedures and limit too many people arriving at the same time.   

·     The procedure for pick-up will be for parents to come to the sign-out table and your camper will meet you there.

PERSONAL HYGIENE, HAND WASHING

·     Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before                  eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water is not readily available, use an alcohol-              based hand sanitizer.  Hand washing and sanitizer stations will be available for all campers, as well as, near the                      bathrooms.

·     If you fall into the category of “vulnerable” or “at-risk individual”, we will ask that you please consider not coming to                  camp.

WHAT IF… A POSITVE COVID-19 CASE IS IDENTIFIED AT CAMP

·     If a child does get sick at camp, we have identified an area where they can rest, be watched after, and safely isolate from others. We will communicate with parents or caretakers directly and, if necessary, arrange for the child to be taken to a healthcare facility for care.

·     If a positive COVID test is determined, we will work with Local Health Department to identify potentially infected or exposed individuals to help facilitate effective contact tracing/notifications. This may include notifying camper families involved and associated with the positive test.
