Health Screening

 

The health and safety of our campers is always our top priority!  We have implemented a number of new safety measures!  Upon arrival to camp, daily we will thermal screen all campers and staff with infra-red thermometers. No exceptions !!!

Additional healthcare professionals are available on-site, including registered nurses.  Those with temperatures above 100.4 will be separated and sent home immediately.  This will most likely be the same protocol that your children will need to follow when they return to school.

 

Parents will also be required for health screening and temperature screening at the home of their child before coming to camp. If they have certain symptoms they should stay home:  Cough, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, or at least two of the following: chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle aches, headache, sore throat, nausea, or new loss of taste or smell.

 

We are creating a health action plan that will describe what happens if/when we have to send a camper or staff home, and the implications for the rest of the core group

 

Campers & Staff will undergo temperature screenings prior to entry daily!

 

Those with temperatures above 100.4 will be separated and sent home immediately

 

It is recommended that campers and staff with higher risk health issues consult with their medical provider to determine if they should attend camp this summer

 

The families who join us for Summer 2020 are those who feel strongly that the benefits of their children being outdoors in a camp situation outweigh the potential risks. Will all of the above eliminate risk? Of course not. Will it eliminate any traces of the coronavirus? Of course not. We will do the best we can to maintain a fun and safe summer camp environment for everyone involved.
