This information is current as of April 2022. The following may change based on CDC guidelines and recommendations by the Evanston Health Department.
Many changes have been made to our regular operations to ensure the safety of our campers and staff. If you have any questions of concerns, please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or through the Contact page.
Enrollment will be limited based on CDC guidelines. Each group has a Group Leader and each classroom is staffed with an adult instructor who will maintain safety protocols.
All camp staff are required to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19. Campers and AAs are not required to be vaccinated.
Face masks are optional but encouraged. We will not require campers or staff to wear a mask unless local laws or the location we are renting space require masks.
Indoor classrooms are set up to allow adequate distance between campers. Each classroom will have either open windows and oscillating fans or air conditioners and air purifiers to provide plenty of clean air flow.
Like last summer, each group will use only two classrooms each day - one room in the morning and a different one in the afternoon, to avoid crowding in the hallways. Rooms will be thoroughly sanitized between groups.
Lunch is 30 minutes, not including time to wash hand and gather lunch boxes. This should be enough time to eat but if a camper needs more time we will adjust that group's lunch time. Campers will bring their own lunch and water bottles to camp. Groups will eat outdoors when the weather allows and will sit on tarps that are marked to allow for social distancing. In case of rain, campers will eat in the classroom and will spread out to allow for even greater distancing. If a parent is uncomfortable with their child eating indoors, they are welcome to pick their child up on rainy days before lunch time.
All facilities will be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized every day and commonly used spaces like bathrooms will be sanitized throughout the day. Classrooms will be thoroughly sanitized between groups.
If a camper or staff member becomes ill, they will be required to remain home to quarantine for the duration recommended by the CDC (currently 5 days). PLEASE DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD TO CAMP IF THEY ARE ILL. If a camper or staff member has a positive COVID test result, all campers and staff who have had the opportunity to come in contact with the COVID positive person will be notified and will be required to remain home to quarantine unless they are vaccinated or a negative test result is performed. Make-up classes will be available for those missing camp due to confirmed COVID related cases on a case by case basis.
