What to Expect
CHELSEA PIERS SUMMER CAMP 2021
IMPORTANT HEALTH & SAFETY GUIDELINES & CAMP FAQs
We are committed to keeping kids safe. All operations, from check-in procedures to daily activities have been designed to deliver a safe, fun and healthy experience for our campers, staff and families. In Summer 2020 we implemented health and safety protocols based on guidance specific to the operation of summer camps from the World Health Organization (WHO), the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the American Camp Association (ACA) and the CT Office of Early Childhood (OEC). We successfully held summer camps for 1,200 campers following these protocols and as a result, the camp was 100% COVID-free. For 2021 we will continue to follow all guidance from the State on safe operations of camp.
Protective Face Coverings
We will follow all guidance from the OEC on face coverings. In 2021, updated guidelines, requires everyone to wear a face mask during check-in and check-out and throughout the camp day.
We encourage parents to exit after checking their child(ren) into camp. Parents who wish to remain on site to watch their child, must stay in designated viewing areas, wear a mask at all times and abide by all social distancing rules.
Enhanced Disinfecting Procedures
For the safety and protection of our campers, our cleaning and maintenance protocol will continue to be maintained at the highest standard throughout the property. Our teams have increased the frequency of these processes, upgraded our supplies and disinfectants to comply with CDC guidelines and new industry standards, and increased the visibility and number of hand sanitizing stations. Chelsea Piers maintenance staff, coaches and counselors will also be responsible for wiping down and disinfecting any and all shared sports equipment between sessions throughout the day.
As we do every summer, we will have a medical office and a nurse at camp this summer. The office will be used for first aid and to dispense pre-authorized daily medications. There will be a separate sick room used for ill campers.
If during the camp day a child feels ill or is determined by the nurse to have an observable illness, such as constant coughing or respiratory distress, or a temperature over 100 degrees Farenheit, the child will be escorted to a designated sick room for their safety and the safety of others. As in normal circumstances, parents will be notified immediately to arrange for pick-up. A staff member will remain near the child for supervision.
Chelsea Piers will follow State and/or Board of Health requirements to support notification and contact tracing protocols.
