covid 19 response
It is important that all families read the protocols and plan to work together so that our camp can run safely and smoothly. We believe that now more than ever, our children need the experience of a low-stress environment with outdoor play exploring God’s creation and learning about God’s care for all people. We are committed as a staff to creating a safe, joyful place and it will be important that all families understand the protocols in advance so that kids can arrive in as much of a “normal” way as possible. We ask that parents prayerfully review this info in advance of enrollment.
Health protocols for parents or guardians
- pack and label your child’s thermal lunch box and water bottle.
- use a ice pack in thermal bag, as we can’t provide refrigeration.
- pack at least one fruit and one crunchy carbohydrate snack
- apply sunscreen to your child
- take your child’s temperature before arriving
- if your child has a temp of 100.4°F (38°C) or higher, or is
experiencing flu-like symptoms, please plan to stay home. Text or call us 410-834-8895 if you can't attend for any reason.
We don’t want to start with out you!
- enter the parking lot lower level
- remain in line as the Check-In Leader will approach your car.
Everyone should remain in the vehicle at camper drop-off and pick-up.
- Our Check-in Leader will ask you the health screening questions
- We will take your child’s temperature with a touch-less thermometer and we will record the reading confidentially. Children with a temperature will be asked to stay home.
While at Camp: Parents Instruction
We must restrict drop-in visitors and cannot permit gatherings of adults on-site while kids are in the activities. The number of on-site campers and volunteers must be limited in order to keep kids and staff safe.
We will provide a list of items that your child will use for the week of camp and these items will be non-sharable items used only by your child. We will store these items throughout the week on site. Snack, lunch bag or water bottle will not be kept on site or shared, so it will be important that all parents bring snack and water bottle daily, as we cannot provide food at this time. We can provide water, but we would like to have the water bottles with the child throughout the day with their names on it.
Please do not bring any electronic devices to camp, including cell phones or any toys that a child may want to share.
Getting Hurt or Sick at Camp
In accordance with recommendations, we will have an area for a camper to be removed from others if they become ill, and we ask that you be available to pick up, or arrange to have child picked up.
Please note: If your child or a member of your household is tested for COVID-19 and tests positive within 14 days of the camp, please report this to us. 410-834-8895
Safety Measures Taken During the Camp
Hygiene and Bathroom Policy
We are using the indoor single bathroom off of the Cafeteria. An adult will walk the child to the bathroom where the child will be expected to use the bathroom independently. After each use, our staff member will disinfect the bathroom and the child will return to the group. Because the camp is a half day, with limited enrollment, we believe we can practice these measures safely and smoothly.
Cleaning, Disinfecting, Ventilation
Our camp is primarily spent outdoors to assure that we are well ventilated. In times where we need to use the bathroom or the Fellowship Hall Cafeteria, we will open windows and use fans if possible. Surfaces of playground equipment, shared objects, door handles and sink handles will be cleaned and sanitized between uses.
There are so many fun ways to keep kids active and engaged while still keeping the social distancing recommendation. By limiting our number of children on site, we can play in small groups and arrange for "outdoor centers”. We want the children to be active, play together and grow in their relationships with each other.
