Safety First

At Discover Day Camp, camper health and safety is our number one priority. We are monitoring local and national conditions and are prepared to take any necessary step to provide for camper safety including social distancing, frequent handwashing, wearing face masks, and screening daily for Covid symptoms. As the summer gets closer, we will refine our safety procedures to address the current conditions.

We realize there is a great deal of concern right now about the coronavirus; you likely have questions about Discover Day Camp and efforts to manage it. We want you to be assured that the health of our campers and staff is our number one priority.

Has Discover Day Camp changed its summer schedule?
No. We are planning to make the scheduled camp programs available for this summer. We will continue to monitor the situation and will update here as needed.
What precautions is Discover Day Camp taking to guard against COVID-19?
We are working with the local health department and will continue to monitor federal, state, and local guidelines. Preventative measures, including heightened disinfecting and sanitary procedures, have been taken to promote a healthy environment on our campus.
What is expected of my camper?
We do ask that all potential campers be symptom-free of fever and respiratory illness for at least twenty-four hours before arriving at camp. Thank you for working with us to ensure the health of our campers, staff, and community. We look forward to seeing you and your camper this summer.

Camp fees for any coronavirus (COVID-19) related cancellation will be refunded upon request. If you have other questions, please contact us. Our staff is eager to help you during this time.

Daily COVID Screening

Our camp staff is working to develop proper screening techniques for campers and staff.

When You Arrive—Check-in
  • During check–in, your camper will go through a health screening process.
  • To help protect our guests and staff, check-in will be as contactless as possible.
  • This screening will include:
  • Temperature check
  • Questionnaire (to ensure no risk or exposure has occurred)
  • Once your camper has been screened, he will receive a dated sticker indicating screening has been completed.
While at Camp
  • All campers will undergo a daily health screening, including a temperature check.
  • Isolation protocols will be followed for campers who develop signs or symptoms of illness until parents arrive to take the camper home.
Frequent Cleaning and Handwashing

Our cleaning procedures are in adherence to local health department advisement, and we will continue with the directed protocol and increased cleanliness of high-traffic and touch points throughout each day.

General Practices and Guidelines
  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
    Especially after nose-blowing, sneezing, going to the bathroom, and before eating or preparing food.
  • Use hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
    Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
    Cover the hands entirely and rub them together until they feel dry.
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Disinfect pens or any small things that are frequently used.
Facility Cleaning Care
  • CDC-approved protocols have been implemented for the cleaning and maintaining of camp facilities.
  • Frequent-touch points will receive additional attention from CDC-approved disinfectants.
  • A certified remediation team is available to provide deep disinfecting services as needed.
Social Distancing and Face Masks

Based on current conditions, we will be implementing appropriate social distancing guidelines throughout all camp areas.

Face masks will be worn where it is not possible to practice social distancing.

Check-in
  • To ensure a more contactless check-in experience, payments must be made online or by phone prior to check-in.
Meals
  • Each meal will be pre-plated.
  • Campers will be spread out in a large dining room to maintain social distancing.
Daily Chapel
  • Campers will be spread out to ensure social distancing.
Activities, Games, and Free Time
