Frequently Asked Questions

List of 13 frequently asked questions.

  • Q: How will campers health be monitored? 

    We will have an EMT on campus all day, every day who will start each morning by taking the temperature of every camper. If needed, he will ask campers follow-up questions. All of this will be recorded and tracked. If we find that a camper has an elevated temperature or he has any concerns, we will isolate that camper and contact parents immediately
  • Q: What will be the policy about masks? 

    Campers and staff will all be required to wear masks when in a larger group setting. When campers are outside, there may be occasions when they do not need to have their mask on. We will provide a mask for every camper in every camp. If we end up using the pool (which we do not know yet), we will not have campers wear masks.  
  • Q: What type of hand sanitizing/hand washing will be expected of campers? 

    Campers will be encouraged to wash their hands regularly.  Hand sanitizing stations will be readily available around the facility. Additionally, we are asking that each camper bring his/her own personal bottle of hand sanitizer (pocket size) each day. 
  • Q: Should campers bring their own water? 

    All of the water fountains will be off limits to campers. Campers are expected to bring their own water bottles. Please fill them at home. If they need to be refilled, we will assign one adult staff member that responsibility. We will also have bottled water and Gatorade for sale during the day. 
  • Q: What about lunch? 

    We will not provide lunch for campers this year. (Please note we have reduced the price of Fun Camp to reflect this.) Campers will need to bring their own lunches and will eat lunch with their group (10 students and a counselor), spread out around the SAC. 
  • Q: How will bathroom use be monitored? 

    We will designate certain bathrooms for use by the campers. Campers may use the bathrooms one at a time and will be monitored by at least two counselors. 
  • Q: How large will groups be? 

    At most, groups will be composed of 10 campers. This group, and the counselor assigned to them, will remain consistent throughout the week and will spend each camp day together, appropriately distant from other groups.  
  • Q: Will there be field trips this summer? 

    We will not take field trips this summer. The guidelines for the use of vans and buses make it impossible to transport a group of campers. Instead, we plan to hold laser tag on campus each week.  
  • Q: How will drop off and pick up work? 

    Unlike other years, the drop off/pick up for every camp will be in front of the SAC. We ask parents to remain in their cars the entire time. We will have adult counselors who will escort campers both from and to their cars. Camps begin at 9 am each day. Because of the limits of camp, please arrive between 8:45-9:25 am. For camps that end at noon, we ask parents to pick up their child between 12:00-12:20 am, and for Fun Camp, which ends at 3:00 pm, anywhere between 2:50-3:30 pm. Parents who arrive after 3:30 pm will be charged $10 for every 15 minutes that they are late.  
  • Q: Why can’t students who register for a Specialty Camp also register for Fun Camp in the afternoon? 

    Please note that campers that sign up for a morning Specialty Camp will not be permitted to join Fun Camp in the afternoon. The reason for this is the need to keep groups isolated for the week. That makes it impossible for us to add new campers to existing groups each afternoon.  
  • Q: Why is there no Aftercare this summer? 

    This summer, camp will only run until 3:00 pm. Because we are required to keep groups isolated for the week, we cannot merge groups during Aftercare. 
  • Q: How will the equipment and the facility be cleaned? 

    Not only will we sanitize our equipment before and after specific activities, we will take time during the day to sanitize equipment in the middle of play. Lunch tables will be cleaned before and after lunch. In addition, the school has a trained maintenance staff who will regularly clean the facility. 
  • Q: How often will we communicate with parents? 

    We will send emails to you very often. Because we are all in new territory, expect for at least the first week to receive an email every day that summarizes how the day went. After that, we will continue to send emails out quite regularly.
