Some changes that we have made to comply with COVID 19 guidelines for day camp are :
1. Each group a different pavilion instead of having all campers together at the beginning and
end of each day. Unfortunately for parents having multiple children that means you
would have two separate drop off / pick up locations
2. We are dividing the campers so that the groups have less than 25 people.
3. They will be with that same group throughout the day and have the same campers and
staff throughout the week.
4. Each group will have their own sports equipment so they would each have their own balls
they would bring with them to prevent sharing.
5. They will be screened before entering.
6. Due to updated summer program guidelines, as of July 9th, Governor Wolf ordered all campers to wear a mask when social distancing can't be maintained. The only exception for not wearing the mask, aside from health related issues, is during water associated activities and when participating in a strenuous activity like bike riding or a sports activity. Staff will wear masks when delivering program or any time they are around campers. Again, exceptions are during water related activities and when leading a strenuous activity like bike riding or a sports activity.
7. McGinnis Centers air filters have been changed to MERV 13 filters to filter out viruses
8. We did set 10 minutes each hour between sessions for hand washing
9. Any equipment such as sling shots, bows and guns will be sanitized by staff in between
10. The pool has had the filter media changed to glass which will filter down to 4 microns, we
will not open our pool this summer to the public it will only be used by our campers
11. The pool house will be sanitized between each session
12. The pavilions and picnic table will be sanitized each day
13. We will be doing our best to keep the campers in each group social distant
14. Removed all water fountains and added water bottle fillers
15. We will not be having an open house this year or a closing campfire after each week.
We have been planning and reviewing with the state, Allegheny county, and Ohara township with what would be the best way to be able to safety still be able to provide a much needed program and child care for our campers.
