COVID-19 Camp Restrictions
Our first priority is the health and safety of our community. All programs and events are subject to change and/or cancellation based on COVID-19 conditions and federal, state, and local mandates, regulations and guidelines.
If masks are required by the State of CT Office of Early Childhood/Youth Camps Division when their summer camp requirements come out later this year we will follow their directive.
Campers will be in groups of no more than 10-14 with staff assigned to them. They would remain in that group for the entire week. The groups will be socially distanced and separated from each other at all times during the day. Intermingling or interaction between the groups and the counselors will not be allowed.
The groups will rotate through activities during the day with sanitizing protocols taking place in between group rotation.
Drop off and pick up will be curbside. Campers (along with their parents/guardian) will have to answer a set of questions prior to exiting the vehicle. If they have a temperature that is above 100 they will not be allowed into camp that day nor able to return until they are fever free without any medicine for 72 hours.
Children exhibiting other symptoms such as cough, runny nose, rash etc. may be denied entrance to camp for the safety of other campers and our staff.
There will be no field trips this year.
We are hoping to still be able to bring in outside entertainers/activities however, that will only happen if they can prove to us that they can meet the State COVID-19 restrictions and requirements.
Arts and crafts materials will not be allowed to be shared. Each camper will be given their own bag of arts and craft materials that they will use for the entire week. If they are attending multiple weeks we will hold onto the bag and replenish as necessary.
We reserve the right to modify these restrictions/requirements and plans as deemed necessary or as mandated by the State. If families do not follow these restrictions/requirements we will not be able to allow the camper to continue to attend.
On days where there is inclement weather camp will be held at Fawn Hollow Elementary School for sessions 1 and 10 and at Stepney Elementary School for sessions 2-9
