Summer Camp Drop Off & Pick Up Procedures

Our drop-off and pick-up procedures for camp have changed for the 2021 season to help reduce risks associated with the Covid-19 pandemic. Please review this document thoroughly as all of the information is pertinent to camp running smoothly and safely each day this summer.

 

Drop-off   

  • Drop-off begins at 9:15 am. Camp begins at 9:30 am.

  • When you arrive on-site please proceed down the driveway and pull up to the designated drop-off point for your group. There will be one drop-off tent for each group. If you have a camper in more than one group you must drop each child at their separate designated tent.

  • Please have a sign with your camper’s full name and group color written clearly and displayed in your driver side window. (Group colors will be emailed separately each week and may change from week to week.)

  • Parents and siblings must remain in the car at all times with windows rolled up. Parents must wear a mask (unless a medical exception applies) as staff will need to approach the vehicle.

  • You will be asked to roll down your window and respond to two standard health questions and to attest to your camper’s health:

    • Do you have any of the following symptoms: cough, difficulty breathing, fever, muscle or joint aches, diarrhea, vomiting, abdominal pain, loss of smell, or loss of taste?   

    • In the past 14 days have you had close contact with someone who has symptoms consistent with or been diagnosed with COVID-19?   

  • Your camper will be asked to exit the vehicle and his/her temperature will be taken with a no-touch thermometer by their designated group counselor. Campers with temperatures 100 degrees or greater will not be admitted to camp. No exceptions. (Staff will go through a similar screening process each morning.)

  • If your child requires medication at camp, we will be accepting them on the first day and they will be kept at camp for the week and returned at Friday drop-off. Read more about the required forms and waivers here. You may roll down your window to deliver medications after your child has passed the medical screening.

  • Healthy campers will be directed to their group “home base” where they will immediately wash hands or apply sanitizer.

 

Pick-up  

  • Pick-up begins at 1:30 pm for our PreK-K groups and 3 pm for 1st-8th grade.

  • When you arrive on-site please proceed down the driveway and pull up to the designated pick-up point for your group. There will be one pick-up tent for each of our groups. If you have a camper in more than one group you must pick-up each child at their separate designated tent.

  • Parents and siblings must remain in the car at all times with windows rolled up. Parents must wear a mask (unless a medical exception applies) as staff may need to approach the vehicle.

  • If you need to make a change to your child’s typical pick-up schedule please email or call the office at (203) 762-7280 with information on any adult retrieving your child.

  • If you wish/need to speak at length with camp staff you may roll down your window and request a conversation. You will be directed to a parking spot and contacted via cell phone. You may also reach our Camp Director Sarah Breznen during camp hours at (203) 731-9832 or sbreznen@woodcocknaturecenter.org.

We will make adjustments throughout the summer as necessary.
