We are very excited for another FUN SUMMER!!!  Also, we know how important it is for you to know you are sending your camper to a safe and healthy environment.  We want you to know we are taking the following steps to ensure camp is a safe place for everyone:

  • All staff and campers are asked to stay home if sick or experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms.
  • All campers and staff must pass a health screening upon arrival at camp, which includes a temperature check. They will do this every day while at camp. Any staff/campers with a positive screening will be sent home and recommended for COVID testing before returning to camp.
  • All staff, volunteers and eligible campers (12 years and older) are highly encouraged to be vaccinated against COVID-19 to avoid from getting and spreading the virus.
  • All Staff that choose NOT to be vaccinated against COVID-19 are encouraged to wear facemasks when inside buildings, not able to be socially distant, outside of eating and sleeping, to reduce the spread of the virus.
  • Proper hand hygiene will be practiced by all staff/campers.
  • Campers will be assigned to their cabin for the week. Their cabin group will have limited interaction with other groups throughout the week.
  • Counselors will also limit their interaction with campers outside their primary group.
  • Each group will have an assigned eating location; — rather than everyone eating in the dining hall, limited small groups will be eating in separate locations, like the dining hall, recreation hall, etc.
  • Group numbers are smaller, in order to keep potential exposure down.
  • Overall camper registrations are limited this summer to ensure less exposure risk between individuals/groups.
  • Crowded and/or poorly ventilated indoor activities are avoided whenever possible.
  • Group areas are thoroughly cleaned after activities, as well as routine cleaning of camp overall at the end of each day.

 

If you have any questions/concerns, please feel free to call us at 330-644-4512 or e-mail Nurse Jessie at jessies@akronymca.org  We can’t wait to see you at camp!!!     

HAVE A GREAT SUMMER & HAPPY CAMPING!!!
