Opening Our Day Camps
We are pleased that the Governor has allowed for camp programs to re-open on a limited scale with the necessary supplies, equipment, and health and safety protocols. The Maryland protocols were assembled based on guidance from the CDC and the American Academy of Pediatrics and can be adjusted at anytime over the summer by our local Health Department.
It is important that all families read the protocols and plan to work together so that our camp can run safely and smoothly. We believe that now more than ever, our children need the experience of a low-stress environment with outdoor play exploring God’s creation and learning about God’s care for all people. We are committed as a staff to creating a safe, joyful place and it will be important that all families understand the protocols in advance so that kids can arrive in as much of a “normal” way as possible.
Keeping staff-to-child ratios as small as possible, with groupings of no more than 8 children, is part of the recommendations from the Maryland Family Network. We will offer more camp dates to try to accommodate families, but overall we anticipate we will be operating at 25% capacity across the summer programs.
Even with this reduced enrollment, we still believe we can make it a fun time for the children. We ask that parents prayerfully review this in advance of enrollment. Or View ON Line
