COVID-19 Summer Camp/Sports Guidelines
-Parents & Caretakers: Parents and caretakers should, when safe to do so, wear a
mask for drop-off and pick-up. We highly encourage that the same parent or caretaker
conduct pick-up and drop-off each day. Parents that choose to stay should stay in their vehicles or observe from a distance away from the activity area.
- Arrivals/departures to camp will be staggered. Camps will end a few minutes early in order to limit potential contact and exposure. Campers will be directed to immediately exit to their parents/caretakers vehicles upon the completion of camp each day.
-Social Distancing: It is recommended to stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arms’ length)
from other people, when possible. We will be encouraging social distancing through
increased spacing, small groups, and limited mixing between groups, and staggered
scheduling, arrival, and drop off, whenever feasible.
-Cover Coughs and Sneezes: Always remember to cover your mouth and nose with
a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow. Throw used
tissues in the trash. Immediately clean your hands with a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
Sanitation and Cleaning Procedures
-Frequently touched surfaces (basketballs, baseballs, soccer balls, etc.) will be cleaned before and after each session of each camp.
-Hand Sanitizing: Players should bring hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol to camp each day for their personal use. Players will be asked to sanitize at each water break. Hand sanitizer will be available for those without.
-We encourage any camper or instructor who is sick, or coming from a household where someone is sick, to stay home.
-If you believe you have been exposed you should self quarantine for 14 days.
Symptomatic & Confirmed Cases
-Positive Cases: Any positive case of Covid-19 should be reported to the camp
director immediately. Windsor Rec staff will notify parents of all camps based on
level of exposure. Any camper and staff member involved in that camp group (ex:
sandlot camp group A, sandlot camp group B, etc.) would not be able to return
to camp for 14 days.
-Return to Camp: The camper who tested positive will not be permitted back into
camp until they test negatively for COVID.
-Positive Case in Household: If a person living with a camper or counselor tests
positive they must stay home and isolate as recommended by the CDC.
-Coaches/players/parents should wear face coverings, unless it creates a health concern to do so OR when they can socially distance from others.
-To limit potential exposure, campers MUST provide their own equipment for use during camp. There will be no sharing of equipment including but not limited to bats, helmets, soccer balls, field hockey sticks, etc.
-Campers belongings, i.e sports equipment, backpacks, etc. MUST be separated from others. Dugouts, bleachers, etc. will not be utilized in typical fashion.
Group Sizes and Ratios
-If possible, groups will include the same group members each day, and the same staff providers will remain with the same group every day.
-Limit mixing between groups when possible.
-Maintain an adequate ratio of staff to children to ensure safety.
