Dear Camp Weaver Families,
As we continue to navigate through the COVID-19 pandemic, we understand this is a very challenging situation for all our families – especially our children. Please click here for a guide on how to talk to children about the pandemic
Frequently Asked Questions – COVID-19
Are we will still having camp? / Is Camp Cancelled?
Day camps are running as scheduled beginning June 6th.
Overnight camps are running as scheduled for this summer.
We appreciate the thoughtful and encouraging messages we have received from our camp families.
We are working diligently to consider all of the factors that will enable us to continue to deliver a safe, fun and meaningful camp experience once again this summer.
Additional Health Care Procedures In Place
Check out the COVID -19 Resource Center the American Camp Association has made available, we have used their camp operations guide to curate our policies for this summer.
With that in mind, this is what you can expect for your camper’s experience at YMCA Camp Weaver this summer:
- Daily health screening, which will include a temperature check and specific health/exposure questions.
- Do you have a fever(100.4),cough,shortness of breath, chills, loss of taste or smell,vomiting, or diarrhea?
- Have you had any of these symptoms in the past 10 days?
- Have you been in contact with anyone who had those symptoms?
- Have you been exposed to COVID-19 or have reason to believe you have COVID-19?
- We are asking families not to send any child that has shown any symptoms within 14 days of camp check in.
- We are lowering our cabin and day group capacities to 10 campers each to support social distancing.
- Campers will be sleeping at least 6 feet apart (head to toe) in cabins.
- We will be providing face coverings for all campers and staff to wear if they must enter a building and social distancing is not obtainable.
- We will not be offering any activities that require campers/staff to be in close proximity or contact.
- We have established a thorough hand washing and hand sanitizing process before and during every meal. All family style meals will be served by staff.
- We will be sanitizing all shared equipment between uses with CDC-recommended chemicals.
- Hand sanitizer stations will be established throughout the facility.
- Campers and/or staff with symptoms will be isolated to prevent any potential spread.
- We will be sanitizing all commonly touched surfaces at least 4 times a day.
If summer camp must be postponed or closed due to COVID-19, we will provide a full refund, hold a credit toward future programs or give the option to convert payments to a tax-deductible donation toward camp.
Children with serious health conditions
Based on discussion with the American Camp Association, we believe that it is best for children with serious health conditions to not participate in our regular sessions; however, we do suggest that parents consult with their family doctor for advice.
