Summer Camps 2020


Covid-19 Camper Safety Information 
The safety and health of campers and staff is always the highest priority. Camps have a long history of planning for and managing communicable diseases and safety concerns. With the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), our department has continued to review and update our health-related plans and procedures under the advisement of the State and County Health Department and the CDC.
Each family coming to camp this summer is different and has unique concerns. Just like every summer, we work hard to ensure your campers have a great summer in a safe environment. We hope the following will help answer some initial questions you may have. This information may change based on health updates we receive from our state and local authorities.

DROP OFF AND PICK UP
All of our campers will be dropped off and picked up at various locations through our car-line system.   

  • Remain in vehicle and have camper ready with backpack on the passenger side of vehicle
  • Temperature will be checked with touch less thermometers and a brief health screening will occur before we escort your camper from the vehicle.
  • Please remain in your car(only the camper should get out).

FACECOVERINGS
LA County requires campers over two years old AND staff to wear face coverings (bandanas, tubies, etc.) EXCEPT when swimming, eating, napping or participating in a solitary high exertion activity (I.e. running). 

PHYSICAL DISTANCING

  •  Individual group size and overall camp size has been reduced.
  • Campers will physical-distance within their group as much as possible.
  • Our staff will be trained on helping campers understand what this means.
  • This will look and function somewhat differently depending on age group.
  • Interaction between groups is limited and requires social distance and supervision.
  • Groups travel between activities and around camp in a single direction, so they don’t overlap unnecessarily.
  • Campers/staff do not come and go into various groups but are limited to their group roster for the week(s) they are at camp.

HEALTH SCREENING AND PREVENTION PLAN

  • Temperatures and health screening of campers and staff will occur upon arrival to camp each day by our staff. Temperatures over 100.4 will have 2nd temperature taken (oral thermometer). If Temp is still over 100.4, camper will not be able to stay at camp.
  • Anyone developing symptoms during the camp day will be moved to an isolated location and our Director will be notified. Parents/guardians will be called to advise and requested to pick up their camper.
  • Staff training will include physical distancing requirements, hand washing protocols, as well as assessing and reporting any symptoms noticed among campers and staff.
  • CDC guidelines around testing for symptoms and quarantine in the event of a positive test apply to campers and staff.


HAND WASHING, CLEANING AND DISINFECTING

  • Multiple hand washing stations and hand sanitizing areas will be placed around most areas of camp.
  • Frequent hand washing before and after activities, lunch, sunscreen applications and restroom breaks.
  • Cleaning of equipment between groups and at the end of each day.
  • Using CDC recommended cleaners and disinfectants.


FOOD AND WATER PROTOCOLS

  •  Hand washing before and after lunch.
  • Ideally lunches should be easy for your camper to eat without help from their counselor.
  •  Campers bring their own lunch, refillable water bottle, hand sanitizer and face covering in a small lightweight backpack.
  •  Water stations for refilling water bottles will be cleaned and sanitized regularly.


ADDITIONAL CLEANING AND DISINFECTING

  • Regular cleaning and sanitizing of all high touch points at camp including but not limited to bathrooms, water stations, activities, archery, and other surfaces.


CAMP ACTIVITIES AND TRAFFIC FLOW

  • Small groups of campers will move throughout activities at camp in one direction.
  • Groups will not double back so they won’t overlap one another.
  • Additional time is built into each activity for cleaning and sanitizing.
