FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
- Q: What is the temperature threshold for admitting a child into camp?
A: 99.9 degrees - if temperature is 100 degrees or higher, the child will not be admitted or will have to leave camp immediately.
- Q: If someone becomes sick, will we be notified?
A: Yes, absolutely. In the event a camper becomes sick during camp, we will remove the camper immediately from the room, place them in an isolated room, contact the parents for pick-up immediately and then proceed with contacting the parents of the other campers in the camp.
- Q: If kids are supposed to maintain 6 feet apart all day, what are they going to be doing?
A: We have configured all of the camp to create as much social distancing as possible. Rooms are set up so that each camper will have a dedicated desk spaced 6 feet apart from a fellow camper. Activities, games, arts, and crafts have been altered to be more individual based activity in an effort to keep campers as socially distant as possible while still having fun and engaged. They will receive their own activity packs when doing arts and crafts activities.
- Q: How many staff will be in contact with my child throughout camp?
A: There will be two staff in the room at all times. Since we are providing all day childcare, a total of 4 counselors will be assigned to a designated classroom for the total 3-week camp session to minimize exposure with other campers. Co-directors Xanat and Alex will be overseeing the camp.
- Q: Are parents allowed to watch the camp classrooms (at a distance)?
A: No, at this time parents and other spectators and visitors are not allowed at the summer camp. Parents/guardians shall drop off and pick up children at staggered times to prevent congregating of any groups of parents/guardians.
