Pirate Summer Camp
June 15, 2020 - August 7, 2020
Camp is full on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. We have openings for Mondays and Fridays.
Camp is open to incoming Kindergarteners through Graduating 6th graders
It is important to know that Pirate Summer Camp will look much different this year. With guidance from the CDC, the State of Michigan and the County we are doing our best to maintain the qualities of our traditional program while meeting safety protocols and recommendations. It is our goal to create the most fun, educational and safe experience for our campers while supporting our community families that have returned to work.
How will Pirate Camp look this Summer?
*Pirate Camp will be held at Country Elementary. Campers will spend their Summer in small consistent groups of 7 to 12 children with 1-2 Counselors. Groups will be made based on several factors including, parental occupations, age, number of days at camp per week, etc.
*Each individual group will have their own classroom, and bathroom to help promote the safest environment possible and to avoid cross-group exposure.
*Field trips and pool time will be extremely limited. Our participation in such activities will be based on recommendations from the CDC and the State of Michigan.
How are we keeping kids and staff safe?
*Upon arrival to Camp, children and staff will be temperature checked and health assessments will be completed each and every day. If anyone shows signs or symptoms related to COVID-19 they will not be able to attend Camp that day and for the 14 days following, unless medical documentation is provided allowing the return to camp.
*Each classroom and common area will be sanitized multiple times throughout the day. Toys, tables, and chairs will be fogged with disinfectant every evening.
*All Pirate Camp Staff will be required to wear masks throughout the day unless they are outside and not within the 6-foot proximity radius.
*If a child or staff member starts to show symptoms during the day, students will be isolated until a parent or guardian is able to pick them up. Staff members will be sent home. The area in which they came from will go through a complete disinfecting process.
What are some of the new processes and procedures?
In addition to the new processes listed above there will be several other specific procedures regarding drop-off and pick up. Parents will not be allowed in the building. Parents will walk their child(ren) to the vestibule in which a health appraisal will be completed before the child is allowed to join their group.
The pick-up procedure will look similar to curbside pick-up that we have all grown accustomed to as of late. Parents will call for pick-up and meet their child with a staff member at the vestibule.
