Staff and directors are trained to recognize COVID-19 signs and symptoms. If, at any point, campers exhibit symptoms throughout the day, they will be removed from the group and isolated following CDC guidelines until an adult can pick them up. Other families present at camp will be notified and encouraged to watch for symptoms, but will not be required to go home since we’re cleaning and distancing like pros. Campers can return after 24 hours, if they are fever-free without the use of fever-reducing medications (see above).
In the event of a confirmed COVID-19 case (of a camper or staff member on site) the director will immediately notify S&K Headquarters (HQ) and local health officials where appropriate. HQ will help determine a course of action for the program. In the event of a positive camper, all parents/guardians will be notified of the case via email and be asked to monitor their campers. Depending on local regulations, campers who are not symptomatic will be able to attend camp.
Camp will be cleaned and disinfected thoroughly, and HQ will asses all health and safety procedures, site operations, and any need for increased monitoring and/or training.
Plan for Care of Mildly Ill Campers
All camp staff are trained in first aid and CPR. Staff will assess each mildly ill or injured camper. Parent/Guardians will be notified if symptoms or complaints warrant, or if the camper desires them to do so. The camper will be able to rejoin activities if symptoms/complaints and medical assessment allows.
Any injury to the head, face or neck will result in an immediate call to parents as a precaution. Staff are trained in concussion signs and symptoms and will monitor campers closely.
Procedure for Emergency Care
All camp staff are trained in first aid and CPR. The closest staff member to the injured camper will ensure the child is safe and not in any immediate harm, offering basic first aid if needed, and call the Camp Director. The Director will assess the injured camper and make a plan for emergency care treatment. If needed, they will designate a staff member to call 911 immediately and the Director or the Assistant Director will notify the parent/guardian of the emergency. If the parent/guardian cannot be reached the emergency contact person(s) listed by the parent/guardian on the camper’s registration will be called in order. If the situation does not indicate an immediate 911 call, the camp director or assistant director will call the child’s parents/guardians and emergency contacts until someone can be reached or until such a time as emergency transport is deemed necessary. The director or assistant director will accompany the camper to the hospital until a parent, guardian or care taker arrives.
