Masks – All of our staff will be wearing face coverings at all times, except while in the ocean. LA County’s guidance is also requiring campers to wear masks, and we do too! Please send your child to camp with a cloth face covering.
When you arrive at camp each day, you will park your car and escort your camper/s to the registration area. We’ll ask you some questions about potential symptoms and COVID exposure and check your child’s temperature, and then we’ll bring them to their group
Each Group will have their own hand wash and sanitizing station.
Campers will be required to wash their hands before lunch.
Campers will be required to wash their hands with soap and water after each bathroom visit and before returning to camp. Bathroom areas will be sprayed with disinfectant prior to and after camper use. We will have separate bathroom runners who will escort the campers to and from the restroom area. Bathroom runners will wear gloves and masks at all times when escorting campers to and from the restrooms.
Campers will be grouped together this summer – In order to help reduce the number of campers your child comes into contact with; campers will be assigned to a co-ed group of up to 11 other campers of the same age range and two counselors. The makeup of that group will stay constant over the course of each session. As always, you can request a friend/s in your child’s same age range to be in their group. Siblings who are in the same grade or one grade apart will be grouped together, in accordance with LA County’s directives on reducing contacts.
What happens if my child gets sick? What if someone in their group does?
We expect families to monitor their campers for symptoms of and exposure to COVID-19 for 14 days prior to camp and throughout their time at Sandy Days Kids Camp. If your child gets sick, has a fever of 100.4 or higher, or exhibits any other symptoms consistent with COVID-19, please notify us immediately. If your child gets sick during camp they will be immediately isolated and sent home. Campers won’t be able to return to camp for at least 10 days after symptoms start AND three days after symptoms including fever have improved.
If your child has had close contact with someone who has COVID-19 or have been advised to quarantine, please do not send your child to camp until they’ve completed the quarantine required by Los Angeles County.
If someone at camp becomes ill with COVID-19, we will notify you. We’ll then follow LA County’s protocol for cleaning, sanitizing, and possible temporary closure of camp.
We’ll be following all of California, Los Angeles County, and the American Camp Association guidelines in safely providing camp activities, cleaning supplies and equipment to avoid disease transmission. All other activities will take place, with some modifications that won’t change your camper’s experience!
Hygiene, Cleaning and More
All campers and staff will be required to wear cloth face coverings at all times, other than while eating, swimming, boogie boarding or paddling. There’s lots more information on our website regarding our plans for cleaning, screening, hygiene, communication, and lots more. We know, too, that things are always changing, and restrictions in LA County and at Sandy Days may get stricter or looser as we get closer to opening. If you have any questions, please ask!
The most important part of Sandy Days is the chance for children to unplug, play outdoors with friends new and old. While we’re making lots of changes to keep our camp family as safe as possible, nothing will change those parts of the Sandy Days experience! We can’t wait to see your camper(s) again this summer.
