We have learned over the last few months while providing Essential Personnel Childcare how to keep children safe in these unprecedented times. We will be following all CDC,ACA, YUSA, local health department and state guidelines, which means camp will be a little different this summer to ensure the health and safety of our campers.

  • Any camper with a temperature above 100.0 will not be allowed to return for two weeks. Camper can be readmitted with a note signed by a physician or a negative COVID-19 test.
  • Campers must wash/sanitize hands before and after each activity/meal.
