Posted on May 9, 2020
The Boys &Girls Club of Boone County is opening registrations for Summer Camp at 8:00 a.m. on Monday, May 11. Camp will he held at our Club Units in Lebanon, Whtiestown and Zionsville. As parent’s register their children, Club leadership is asking them to carefully review information about process and procedure, which follow current health and safety guidelines.
What addition safety procedures can we expect to ensure the health and wellness of the kids and staff?
- Any and all field trips will be by pod and only to outdoor locations.
- Campers and staff will have temperatures checked and answer questionnaires/health screenings before entering Clubs.
- Campers and staff will have temperature checked a second time at lunch.
- Masks will be available for members and required when appropriate.
- Anyone with a temperature of 100.4 will not be allowed to participate and must go home. If this happens your child will wait in an office away from other youth and staff for everyone’s safety.
- If a child or staff member has had direct contact with someone with a confirmed case of COVID-19, they must self-quarantine for 14 days and call their healthcare provider.
- Each program area will be cleaned and disinfected at the end of each activity.
- Campers and staff will regularly wash their hands.
- Deep cleaning will happen in the evening/ before the clubs open the following day.
- Social distancing practices put in place must be adhered to by each staff person and camper.
We have carefully reviewed guidelines from the CDC, FSSA and the state as we have planned this year’s camp. Due to social distancing and occupancy guidelines, we are restricting the number of campers at each location and organizing children in groups by age of up to 9 campers per group. We’re calling the groups pods and will have these groups in camp together all summer to ensure limited exposure to others.
