The precautions we are taking to protect your family during COVID-19:
Please limit 1 parent, campers at checkin location, once that parent has left the building then the next family may enter.
We will do wellness checks for all children at sign-in. A parent must sign off on symptoms within the last 48 hours. All campers will have their temperature recorded upon entry into the building. If a child has a temperature at or above 100.4 degrees or shows any signs or symptoms, per the local Department of Public Health, they will not be able to remain at camp and may be asked to quarantine before returning to camp.
Staff members are required to wear masks, per state guidelines, and children are also to wear masks while at camp. I reusable mask per child is provided. Masks are kept at camp location for use during day camp only.
Our staff members are doing frequent cleaning and disinfecting of all spaces and objects that are used during camp.
We will be on heightened alert for symptoms and enacting a more stringent sick policy to avoid having sick children or children with potential contagious symptoms in the program.
Campers set 6ft apart for activities, and kept in small groups of moving activities to limit possible exposure.
Increased frequency of hand-washing for staff and children throughout the day.
Your child will be given a reusable water bottle and bag to be used and left at SPARK Squad.
