Updated Guidelines for Summer 2020

Last revision: 7/1/2020


Dear Parents and Guardians,

In an effort to keep you informed about the guidelines we are implementing for summer 2020, we have prepared an outline of the new policies, procedures, and programming that will be in place at camp. This document will be available at campsrus.org/guidelines, and may be updated as new guidance is received from our local Health Departments.

Camps ‘R’ Us guidelines for summer 2020 are based on the American Camp Association’s Field Guide, which was developed in conjunction with Y-USA, CDC, EPA, OSHA and Environmental Health & Engineering, a public health consulting firm. This document represents the national standard for best practices at summer camps. 

We advocate for children to have a meaningful, positive, and safe summer at camp. Following the unprecedented circumstances of current events, it is our mission to deliver a summer camp experience that will nurture the physical, intellectual, emotional, and social well being of our Campers and Staff.

Our leadership team, composed of over 30 camp professionals, has been hard at work planning for an amazing summer. We have redeveloped our programming, with activities, events, themes, and special performances that will provide Campers and Staff the opportunity to reconnect in an environment in which they feel safe, socially stimulated, and physically active.

All of us at Camps ‘R’ Us are dedicated to creating a delightful summer for everyone in our camp community. We thank you for your continued support, and we look forward to seeing you soon at camp.

Warm regards,

The Turnier Family

Need for Quarantine
Based upon Governor Cuomo’s Executive Order 205, issued June 25, 2020, the following states meet the criteria for required quarantine: Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas and Utah.

Please check the following website for travel advisory updates, as this may change: https://coronavirus.health.ny.gov/covid-19-travel-advisory

Travel Advisory to Restricted States
If a Camper or family member has traveled to any of the restricted states listed above, they must quarantine for 14 days after leaving the state, record daily temperatures, and have a negative COVID-19 antigen test before their first day of camp.

Traveling by Plane
If a Camper has traveled by plane they must quarantine for 14 days after returning home and have a negative COVID-19 antigen test before being permitted to attend camp.

Self Assessment Questions
You must be able to answer “No” to the following questions.

From registration to camp start date

  1. Parents will be asked all of the above questions and must respond accordingly.
  2. Parents/Guardians must begin to record daily temperatures from the day they enroll, campers must have a COVID Antigen Test, and submit the results to camp with Immunization, Physical Exam, and COVID documents (attestation, waiver, and pre-camp health screening).
  3. If the child has previously been exposed to COVID-19 or has had COVID-19 in the past the Parent/Guardian must provide an Antibody Test Result.
Communication
Parents/Guardians Communication

Prior to camp we will share all the updated information, guidelines and regulations about policies and procedures the camp has implemented to minimize the risk of COVID-19 exposure. 

We encourage high risk campers to consult their professional health care provider before attending camp.

Children should stay at home if they show any signs or symptoms of COVID-19 or any other potential infectious diseases, i.e, Rash, Sore throat, fever, conjunctivitis (pink eye).

During the Camp Season, Camps ‘R’ Us will:

  1. Send communications regarding updated COVID-19 precautions.
  2. Implement daily monitoring of Camper and Staff health and ask that you report any health concerns or changes in your family’s health status to your Campus Director.
  3. Share changes to the status of camp, policies and procedures as needed.
Staff Protocols
Staff attends a comprehensive training program which includes, but is not limited to: 

  • Administrative responsibilities and  COVID-19 policy and procedures.
  • Camp administration, Regional Directors,  Campus Directors and Certified Health Designees complete the COVID-19 Contact Tracing Program offered by Johns Hopkins. 
  • Proper use of protective equipment.
  • Roles and responsibilities related to COVID-19 while providing a fun and safe summer for our campers.
  • Communicate the importance of monitoring their personal health for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 and to stay home if they show any of these signs.
  • Strongly encourage staff to maintain social distancing when not at camp.
  • Preparing for flexibility in work schedules.
Camper Screening
At least one week before the start date of your child’s session, you will receive a camper health assessment form and screening questionnaire.  We strongly encourage you to take your child for an Antigen Test (detects active COVID-19 infections). This is a recommendation not a requirement.  If you choose not to have Antigen Testing then we are requiring that you monitor your child’s temperature 14 days prior to your child’s first day of camp. 

Campers who register late and are unable to implement the 14 day temperature check prior to their first day of camp, will be required to have a COVID-19 Antigen test and documented results before they are permitted to attend.  If the camper has had COVID -19 prior to the camp season an Antibody Test is required. 

Upon arrival in the morning, every camper will be given a symptoms screening and temperature check. 

If your child has any signs of illness or a temperature of 100.0°F or higher, your child must go home and cannot attend camp until they see their professional health care provider and are cleared to return to camp. If you have multiple children in a carpool, and one child fails the screening process, all children in the carpool must go home and return upon medical clearance.

Parents MUST wear a face covering at drop off if they leave their car.

If you or your child answers “yes”to (questions 1-4) and “no”( to questions 5 & 6) the will be permitted to enter camp. (See COVID Pre-Camp Screening Form).

Staff Screening and Requirements
Staff will be trained on all policies and procedures during pre-camp training. 

All staff are required to take an Antigen Test (test for active infections) for COVID-19 within 1 week (7 days) prior to camp setup and/or their start date at camp. Proof of negative test must be sent to camp prior to the staff member’s first day of camp.

All Staff must self monitor temperature and symptoms of COVID-19 starting the day  they have the Antigen test done. Late hires will not be permitted to work until they have a documented  COVID Antigen Test result. 

If Staff had COVID-19 prior to the camp season they must submit documentation of the Antibody Test.

Upon arrival, daily health assessment screening and temperature checks will be completed for all Staff members. Any sign of illness or temperature of 100.0°F or higher will result in a staff member being sent home along with anyone they were with when they arrived at camp. Face covering and other PPE will be used as per CDC guidelines.

Before Camp Opens
What you need to do before your child’s first day of camp.

Prepare
Please read this entire document at least two weeks before your child’s first day of camp.
Sign and submit the COVID-19 Waiver form and the Parent Attestation form, accessible in your CampInTouch account as of June 11, 2020.

Face Coverings
Campers must be provided with an appropriate face covering and a sealable bag or container to store the covering when not in use. Please label the container with your child’s name and grade.

Temperature Screening
Record your child’s temperature once per day, beginning 14 days before your child’s first day of camp. Record your child’s temperature on the
Pre-Camp Health Screening form, accessible in your CampInTouch account as of June 11, 2020.

Recommended Testing
We recommend that you have your child take an COVID Antigen Test 7 days before their first day of camp. Keep in mind this is a recommendation not a requirement.

If  your child’s session begins after June 29th, You must follow the Pre- camp Health Screening Protocol.  If you are unable to do so, because of late registration, your child must have a COVID Antigen Test result before he or she is permitted to attend camp.

Signs and Symptoms of COVID-19
Become familiar with the Signs and Symptoms of COVID-19, which are
Cough, Temp of 100.0º F of more, Shortness of Breath, Fatigue, Headache, Sore Throat, and Sudden unexplained loss of taste and/or smell.

Camper Medical Forms
If you cannot make an appointment with your child’s physician prior to the camp season, please obtain the latest medical record on file at your healthcare office and update any new medical information yourself, by writing “there is no medical update from what is on this form.”  Sign and date the form indicating that the information is current and accurate to the best of your knowledge. If there have been any medical updates since this latest record, please list the medical updates, sign and date the form. All immunizations must be up to date as of the last physical exam.

Arrival, Facial Coverings, and Physical Distance on Campus
Extra Time
You may need to allow for extra time during morning arrival, especially in the early days of the camp season, as we are all adjusting to these new policies and procedures.

Traffic Flow on Campus
Please follow the traffic patterns of the campus, and all instructions given to you by Camps ‘R’ Us Staff. Parents/Guardians, you should not get out of your car at any time when you are on campus, unless instructed to do so by Camps ‘R’ Us Staff.
If you need to enter the campus for any reason, you will be subject to the same health assessment as your child, you must wear a face covering, and you will be asked to wash your hands or sanitize your hands before entering.

Arrival
Upon arrival at camp, gather your child’s belongings, say goodbye to your child, have your child put on their face covering, and await a Camps ‘R’ Us Staff Member to open the car door.

Health Assessment
A Health Certified Staff Member will approach your car, open the door, take your child’s temperature, and ask the parent/guardian a series of health assessment questions. Once campers are cleared by Staff, they will be escorted to sanitize and/or wash their hands, and then proceed to the area designated for morning arrival. A face covering must be worn during arrival, until the camper is at their designated area.

Camper “Hubs”
Camper arrival will take place within their designated “hub” space. A “hub” is a space for groups that are in cohort, a group in which Campers and Staff will be staying together almost exclusively during the camp day. Campers and Staff may remove their face covering when in their hub, and when they are with their assigned cohort group. 

Physical Distance
A physical distance of six (6) feet or more and/or the wearing of face coverings will be maintained in all shared spaces.

The Camp Day
Cohorts
Campers will be grouped in Cohorts, which are groups that will participate in camp activities almost exclusively during the camp day.

Hand Washing and Sanitizing

Mandatory handwashing and sanitation protocols will be strictly enforced. Hand washing and sanitizing stations will be located throughout camp.

EPA approved cleaning supplies will be utilized. 

Group Leaders will oversee, enforce and monitor handwashing. Counselors MUST monitor all hand washing and sanitization to ensure proper handwashing procedures are enforced.

Hand washing will take place before and after all activities at camp.

Restrooms
Restrooms will be cleaned and disinfected by custodial staff at least every hour.

Physical Distance
A physical distance of six (6) feet or more and/or the wearing of face coverings will be maintained in all shared spaces.

On-Site Medical Management
An outdoor tented area will be used as a medical holding space to avoid crowding in the health office. Campers will be called in one at a time to be evaluated.

The health office will be located in an area chosen by Campus Directors.

An isolation room will be designated to cohort Campers and Staff who exhibit symptoms of COVID-19 and/or fever at camp.

Health Designees and health care providers will wear PPE (mask, gloves) when providing care to campers.  A gown will be worn for only suspected COVID-19 cases.

Camp Programming
What will camp look like in 2020?

Activities
Camp activities will be modified to reduce physical contact between campers, and programming will be focused on including more outdoor activities.

Events and Performances
Camp events and performances will be redesigned to be physically distant or attended in cohorts. Additional information about specific events and performer schedules will be released as soon as possible.

Supplementing Off-Campus Trips

All off-campus trips, including swimming and bowling, are cancelled for summer 2020. Enhancements to on-campus programming, including additional supplies and equipment, will be available to supplement cancelled activities.

Electives
Traditional elective programs (EduCamp, Soccer Clinics, Dance Instruction and CRUfit) will be available, as well as new electives in Music, Nature, Musical Theater, Robotics, Coding, STEAM, LEGO and more*.
Additional programming is being developed, and will be shared as it becomes available.

*tentative

Group Size and Limited Contact
The cohorts will be assigned to a home base, or hub.

Group sizes will be created by age of camper and based on DOH mandates (no more than 15 individuals in each group excluding Staff).

We will do our best to honor friend requests as long as the campers are the same age or in the same camp grade, and the group size allows.

As per the CDC, social distancing practices will be enforced between cohorts. Campers and Staff must wear a mask when social distancing of 6ft or more does not happen.

Groups and Cohorts - What's the Difference?
A group is composed of the permitted number of campers by age; the maximum number of campers per group is 10.

Cohorts are made up of several camp groups that are permitted to have activities with each other throughout the summer while following social distancing guidelines. Cohorts may not mix with other cohorts unless they are wearing a protective mask or maintaining a social distance of 6 ft. or more.

The use of cohorts will allow us to maintain a community feeling while still providing a safe environment. Cohorting groups will help us reduce the spread of infection and allow for more rapid identifications of suspected or confirmed cases. Cohorts will be as small and as practical as possible, and will be of same age campers. 

Cohort sizes are subject to the mandates of  NYS and the local Department of Health.

Camp Calendars
Each Camps ‘R’ Us campus has a unique calendar displaying camp events, themes, and traditions for the entire summer.

In addition to our jam-packed daily schedule, campers can look forward to a variety of entertaining activities, including Color War, Talent Show, Crazy Hair Day, Shades’ BIG Shindig and much more.

Calendars will be released as they become available, beginning June 19th.

To view the calendar, please select your campus below.

Additional information about special events is available in our Special Programming Addendum. Additional information about other events (which may or may not appear on the calendar) will be released throughout the summer.

Special Programming Summer 2020

Cleaning and Disinfecting
All areas of camp will be cleaned between groups, including equipment, playgrounds, toys, and multi-use supplies (i.e. arts & crafts scissors or paint brushes) with EPA approved disinfectants sanctioned for use with COVID-19 throughout the camp day. 

A rigorous cleaning and disinfecting process, performed by a professional cleaning service, will take place throughout the campus every evening after camp. Custodial staff will be available on campus during the day.

Additional custodial personnel will provide daily disinfection for high touch and high use areas throughout the camp day.

Designated cleaning (individual hubs) teams will disinfect activity areas, game rooms, art rooms as well as outdoor equipment and toys after each use.

Food service areas will be disinfected after each meal period. Cleaning crews will wear PPE equipment when cleaning and sanitizing. Professional cleaning crews will come in after hours to do a thorough disinfecting every evening.

Visiting/Tours
Visiting and Tours of any kind will not be permitted while camp is in session.  Safety protocols will be in place for vendors, deliveries and other personnel who may need to enter the campus. If you need to pick up your child early, please contact your campus at least 30 minutes before you arrive, and follow the same procedure for a normal dismissal.
Vendors, Deliveries, and Maintenance
Any persons entering the camp facility must maintain a distance of 6 ft. while at camp. All delivery personnel must wear a face covering before getting out of their vehicle. Maintenance and repair personnel must wear a face covering while at camp.
Lunch, Snacks and Beverages
Lunch
Campers will bring lunch from home and it will be refrigerated by cohort. Generally, campers will eat in the cafeteria, their hub, or picnic outside. If multiple cohorts are scheduled to eat lunch simultaneously in a shared space, social distancing practices will be in effect. Tables will be cleaned of all food and debris (crumbs, etc.), and then disinfected after each lunch period. Staff and Campers will wash/sanitize their hands before and after the lunch period.

Snacks
Pre-packaged, individual serving-size snacks will be provided to campers during the day. Staff and Campers will wash/sanitize their hands before and after the snack period.

Beverage Stations
Water and flavored beverages will be provided throughout the camp day. Staff Members will serve drinks to Campers, as they will not be permitted to touch the drink containers. A Staff Member will be assigned each beverage station to serve drinks. Single use cups are available at each beverage station. Campers may also use their official CRU water bottle, or any other reusable bottle, until it is empty. Water bottles may not be refilled at camp. Single use bottles will be discarded, and reusable water bottles will be cleaned and stored with campers’ gear.

Plan for Inclement Weather
In the event of any extreme weather, high heat indices, rain storms, thunder storms, etc., we will make the decision whether or not to open camp that day. This decision will be made and communicated via TextCaster, email, and on our web site and social media by 6:30AM, to give you time to make alternate arrangements. 

Parents/Guardians must highly consider use their discretion to keeping their children home in the event of a rainy day, extreme heat waves and/or rain storms.

Monitoring and Keeping Campers and Staff Health All Summer
Regular Health Screening

All Certified Health Designees and additional Healthcare staff will have access to non contact and tympanic thermometers. All Directors and Certified Health Designees will be trained on symptom identification and daily temperature checks.

RN Wellness Coordinator will monitor health checks and identify areas of concern. When in doubt, RN and/or Camp Director may request that COVID-19 Antigen Testing be done.

Campers with particular health issues may be subject to daily monitoring.

COVID-19 Specific Symptom Alert

Certified Health Designee and Health Assessment and Temperature Screeners will be trained to identify all known COVID-19 symptoms. 

Any Camper or Staff found to have suspected symptoms of COVID- 19 will be asked to go home and be tested. A positive COVID-19 Antigen test will initiate contact tracing by the Department of Health.

COVID-19 Symptoms

Symptoms consist of: Cough, fever, shortness of breath, muscle aches, sore throat, unexplained loss of taste or smell, diarrhea, headache, and fatigue

What happens if a Staff member or Camper develops COVID-19 like symptoms at camp?

Persons with COVID-19 like symptoms will darn a face covering and be escorted to an isolation room by a Health Designee until they are dismissed home.

Persons sent home may return to camp when they provide a negative COVID-19 Antigen test AND all symptoms have resolved in accordance with the current Department of Health and CDC regulations. 

What happens if there is a COVID-19 Positive Diagnosis?

HIPPA policy regarding confidentiality will be maintained at all times while mitigating the situation. The case will be reported to the health authorities and all Staff and any other individuals/group/cohort will be notified immediately.

All facilities that the individual came in contact will be vacated, deep cleaned and disinfected as per CDC guidelines. 

We expect that all Campers and Staff members who came in close contact with the infected person, may be required to quarantine for 14 days and that any persons classified as having a proximate exposure may be required to self-monitor for symptoms for the same 14 day period. 

Current CDC/DOH guidelines for handling exposure and mitigating the risk of exposure will be strictly enforced. 

Persons who test positive for COVID-19 may return to work when the following conditions are met:

  1. At least 14 days have passed since you first had symptoms.
  2. Fever free for at least 72 hours without fever reducing medication.
  3. Three days (72 hours) since your symptoms have improved.
  4. Respiratory symptoms have resolved.
  5. Two negative COVID-19 tests at least 24 hours apart.

What is the definition of “Close Contact?”

The CDC defines close contacts as interactions within 6 ft for more than 15 minutes. Contact tracing will be carried out by trained staff in conjunction with the Nassau and Suffolk County Departments of Health

What is the definition of “Proximate Exposure?” 

The CDC defines proximate exposure as interactions greater than 6 ft apart to an infected individual within a shared space

Missed Camp Days

If a camper misses camp days due to being quarantined or potential exposure to an infected individual, they will receive a credit toward the 2021 camp season for the days missed based on the previously established policy:

If a camper is absent for documented medical reasons for more than 7 consecutive camp days, the camper’s enrollment may be adjusted as follows: for days missed after the rst 7 consecutive missed days, the total number of weeks enrolled may be reduced to the nearest full week. A pro-rated credit may be offered based on the difference in price between the original enrollment and the adjusted enrollment; a physician’s note must be submitted.

Dismissal
Extra Time
You may need to allow for extra time during afternoon dismissal, especially in the early days of the camp season, as we are all adjusting to these new policies and procedures.

Traffic Flow
Please follow the traffic patterns of the campus, and all instructions given to you by Camps ‘R’ Us Staff. Parents/Guardians, you should not get out of your car at any time when you are on campus, unless instructed to do so by Camps ‘R’ Us Staff.

  1. Good morning! If we are looking to cancel for 2020 and are requesting a credit, would the $300 deposit be credited?

    • campsrus

      Yes, with the credit option, the deposit is included in your credit.

  2. Christine Kubic

    We will be cancelling this year for Jake Kubic (5th Grade). We will def be back next year! Thanks for all your hard work! Have a great summer!
    Let me know if you need any information from me to receive the refund for my deposit.
    Thanks
    Christine Kubic

    • campsrus

      The official cancellation form is on this page, just scroll to the bottom to review and submit.

  3. Shawn Novatt

    I think this all makes sense. I just wonder if the trips to go swimming might change as summer progresses and Long Island is elevated to phase 3 or even 4? Also is the Hicksville building air conditioned? What are the plans on rainy days? Thanks.

    • campsrus

      Yes, that is a possibility. As our guidance develops, and the reopening progresses, we will be able to reevaluate our operating guidelines. Hicksville is air-conditioned except for the gymnasium, which is cooled with awesome fans from this company. We can run a full indoor program on rainy days, with proper cohort measures in place.

  4. Jennifer Giannotti

    Can you please confirm if the $300 initial deposit can be applied to next year camp tuition if we cancel 2020?

    Thanks so much

    • campsrus

      Yes, if you cancel and choose the credit option, the $300 deposit is included in your credit.

  5. Stephanie Leyva

    Hello,
    I understand June 15th is the last day for full refund. Would it be possible to get an updated camp calendar with activities that will be done on each day? Thank you Stephanie

    • campsrus

      We are publishing programming updates this week.

  6. KIMBERLY ROMANO

    Hi! Thank you for this. I know you all have a lot on your plates right now just with what I’m seeing on Facebook!
    We will still be attending camp at the Farmingdale campus. Im sure there will be more information in the coming weeks, however I figured I’d ask.
    – As far as masks, my daughter is 6 and will not wear it for a long period if time. In the cohort groups, they will have their masks off?
    – Farmingdale drop off – will there be specifics advised with traffic flow?
    Thank you!

    • campsrus

      Masks are only required at arrival and dismissal, travelling to and from the car, rarely when cohorts may not be able to socially distance (hallways), and when close contact with health staff is needed (First Aid). Otherwise, campers do not need to wear masks. We will be advising on specific traffic flow for each campus. It will be shared in the welcome kits coming home the week before camp.

  7. Danielle

    I am just curious about kid’s placement.
    Are kids going to separated by grade level like usual or are siblings going to be placed in “hubs” together?

    • campsrus

      Campers will be grouped by current grade level, as usual.

  8. Chunying Wang

    Hey just realized there is a guideline for cancellation.
    I have questions for option “Request a credit for a future summer”.
    – Is it required that the credits should be used in the summer of 2021 or any future summer is okay as long as the kid is qualified?
    – Can the credits be used by siblings?

    Thank you!

    • campsrus

      Hi Chunying, thanks for reaching out. Any future summer for the credit, as long as any child in your family is of camp age.
