Safety At Summer Camps

Below, you will find a summary of actions recommended by the CDC to help ensure camps are lowering COVID-19 risk as much as possible:

  • Intensifying cleaning and disinfection practices within facilities and premises
  • Keeping campers in small groups and spacing them out when possible
    • For example, by prioritizing outdoor activities, by seating one child per row and skipping rows
  • Limiting the number of items that are shared or touched between campers and staff, and keeping a camper’s belongings separated from others and in individually labeled containers, cubbies, or areas
  • Promoting healthy hygiene practices such as:
    • Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
    • Use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol when they don’t have access to soap and water
    • Encourage campers to cover their mouth and nose with a tissue or to use the inside of their elbow when they cough or sneeze
  • Requesting that staff and campers wear a cloth face covering when feasible, and in times when physical distancing is difficult
  • If a child does get sick at camp, identify an area where they can rest, be watched after, and safely isolate from others
