Health & Wellness

Students are not required to have a COVID vaccination to attend camp. Any student who has COVID-19 symptoms or known exposure to COVID-19 will be required to stay at home until the symptoms have passed. The student will be required to provide results of a negative COVID-19 test before returning to the site or beginning of any camp. 

If a student becomes sick during camp a family member will be contacted. If the student is not feeling better after having the opportunity to rest, you will be asked to pick-up your child. We will also try to find a place to rest that is isolated from the other children. Additionally, if your child demonstrates COVID-like symptoms (fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, gastrointestinal issues, nausea, vomiting or diarrhea) during the program they will also be moved to an isolated location and the family will be notified for immediate pickup. Once a family member has been called, the parent or emergency contact must pick up the student within 60 minutes.

Please submit the negative test results to Alice Smith, Community Programs & Operation Manager. Email – or call (919)321-6926.
