West Boggs Park is closely following information regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and taking precautionary measures accordingly. As of now, the park will be continuing with our original Summer Day Camp schedule for 2020.
The park will continue to constantly monitor any updates from the CDC and the effects of Coronavirus. We will keep everyone updated on any new information that may be released concerning Summer Camps and COVID-19. Your child’s health and the environment in which he/she plays is our top priority.
Camper Health Guidelines
- At drop off each morning a counselor will ask the parent/guardian if the child has had a cough, fever or shortness of breath in the last 72 hours. If the answer is yes, the camper will NOT be allowed to attend camp until they have been symptom free for 72 hours.
- If a camper develops a fever of 100 degrees or higher or consistent cough during the camp day a parent will be notified immediately to come pick the camper up. The camper may return after being symptom free for 72 hours.
- Parents are responsible to let the Camp Director know immediately if their child has symptoms or has been diagnosed with a Communicable Disease.
- Parent/Guardian will be notified immediately if a camper becomes ill or sustains an injury of a serious nature.
- Please do not bring your child to camp if they feel ill, or have had a fever, coughing, vomiting or diarrhea.
- A child must be fever and cough free for 72 hours and 24 hours for vomiting and diarrhea.
Prevention at Camp from COVID 19:
We will be implementing several new policies to assure that we are doing everything in our power to lessen the spread of germs at camp.
Drop off: Parents will be dropping off using our new drive through service. Cars will pull up to the Activity Center where a counselor will come to your car window and ask the parent/guardian questions about fever and cough. Counselors may check the camper’s temperature using a forehead thermometer.
During lunch: Each camper will be supervised with hand washing before they eat. Lunch time will also be cleaning time to sanitize all equipment that has been used by staff and campers including the shelter and bathrooms.
Pick up: Pick up will occur just like drop off at the Activity Center. Parents will pull up and a counselor will get your child, sanitize their hands and load them into your car. Everything that was touched by campers and staff during the day will be sanitized and ready for the next morning.
Camper Restrooms will be cleaned hourly. Campers will not use the park drinking fountain but rather have their water bottles refilled by their counselor with bottled water.
Campers will be asked to wash hands a few extra times during the day. Hand washing steps will be placed on the walls in the bathrooms for campers to follow as well as a fun song to sing while washing for those 20 seconds. Counselors will be monitoring coughing and sneezing and have campers immediately wash hands as well as teach them to cough and sneeze into their elbows.
So, let’s sanitize and get outside! Sign your child up today for their Summer of a lifetime!
