COVID-19 Camp Procedures
 
Please make sure to update your waiver. We have a new waiver for 2020 and all campers will need a waiver on file to participate.
 
Here is some information to help you know what participants can expect during their week of camp:
 
Due to the current pandemic of the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) we have issued many changes to our camp policies and procedures to ensure the safest camp experience for our campers, parents, employees, and community. Please read this message in full in order to familiarize with these practices. For more information, please view the New York State Department of Health “Interim Guidance for Child Care and Day Camp Programs During the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency” which further outlines the necessary adjustments we have made to camp.
 
Masks:
• Campers and employees will be required to wear a mask.
• Those with masks that are soiled or damaged will be supplied a new mask.
• Masks will be required at all times when social distancing of 6ft or more is not possible.
• Masks will not be required for times of active climbing and during lunch and snack periods but social distancing will be enforced as feasible.
 
Hand Hygiene:
• There will be many mandatory hand hygiene times for staff and campers to include but not limited to:
◦ Upon arrival to the facility;
◦ Between all program activities;
◦ After using the restroom;
◦ Before eating; and;
◦ Before departing the last program activity.
 
Drop-off and Pick-up Procedure:
• Non-essential visitors will not be allowed on site to the extent possible.
• Drop-off will be open from the times of 8:40am. to 9:30am. Campers will be received at the front desk by a staff member who will ensure all questions have been answered, a health assessment is performed and forms have been received. 
• Pick-up will be open from the times of 3:40pm to 4:20pm. 
• Arrivals and departures outside this time window are asked to call before drop off/pick-up to ensure a staff is available to receive them. This includes before and after care. 
• Please remember, parents or guardians must present a photo ID in order to pick-up their child.
 
Health Screening Assessment:
• We recommend that parents and guardians familiarize themselves with the signs and symptoms of COVID-19.
• Children who are sick will not be admitted into camp.
• A health screening assessment will be performed at arrival each day to include:
◦ A short questionnaire to understand potential exposure.
◦ An infrared temperature reading to ensure no fever (99 or above).
 
Lunch:
• Lunch that is provided by RocVentures will be served individually by the camp staff.
• Stable groups will remain separated during meal times.
• Social distancing will be strongly encouraged during meal times.
 
Additional Recommended Items:
• Change of clothes - RocVentures typically offers a change of clothes to campers. Since we are trying to limit the sharing of items we recommend that parents provide a change of clothes when applicable to their children.
 
Additional Camp Details:
• Camp will run from 9am-4pm daily
• We recommend that everyone joining us be dressed in comfortable athletic clothing that will keep them cool and comfortable while participating in activities.
• Climbing shoes will be provided but we ask that the kids bring their own socks.
