Our COVID-19 Policy:
- Camp size will be limited to no more than 25 students.
- Maintain staffing levels of one counselor for every 2 – 3 students to reinforce safe practices of: Social distancing, Regular hand washing, Mandatory mask wearing at all times, No touching.
- Require parents to take their kids’ temperature each morning and stay home if > 99°F.
- Check temperatures with no-touch thermometer at the door for every student and counselor before entering Trinity.
- Check temperatures again at lunch breaks.
- Washing hands immediately upon entering Trinity.
- Provide hand sanitizer and masks/bandannas as needed.
- Limit building exposure by confining activities to reception area, bathrooms, sanctuary, kitchen, and back door. All of which will be thoroughly sanitized throughout each day.
- We will limit the amount of time campers spend in the same area.
- Should a child become sick during the day, the child will be moved to the upstairs conference room and the guardian will be contacted. Either a counselor or intern will remain with the child at all times. The other members of the group will be kept away from the camper for the rest of the day and parents will be notified of symptoms displayed so that they can evaluate their children.
- Bathrooms may only be used by one camper at a time and all doorknobs, sinks, etc. will be cleaned after uses.
- The final camp performance will be cancelled, instead we will be filming throughout the week of camp and will post a video to Facebook and/or YouTube.
We do understand that these measures seem restricting, but we have an amazing group of counselors ready to come together and make sure all of our campers still have an amazing time this summer. Thank you for all of your support during this trying time. If you have any questions please let us know!
As working parents, we understand the importance of having safe, constructive activities for kids during the summer and are committed to providing that for those who we consider our extended family. We have also seen the toll that social isolation has on kids’ mental health and believe that it is important to begin non-virtual social activities as soon as it is safe to do so.
