Will you be doing any kind of health screening for Day Campers and staff?
Yes! Each morning during Rides In, we will ask each parent and camper a series of questions and we will take each camper’s temperature before they exit their vehicle. If a camper has a temperature of 100.4 or greater, we will require them to be away from Camp until they have been fever-free for at least 72 hours. Our staff will go through the same process when they arrive back at camp after their time-off.
Will you be disinfecting common areas and providing hand sanitizer around Camp?
We are absolutely cleaning all high-use areas multiple times a day and have hand sanitizer available everywhere with mandatory use before and after activities.
What happens if my camper gets sick while at Camp?
As we have always done, our counselors will monitor their campers throughout the day to see how they are doing. This includes making sure they get enough water, put their sunscreen on, and eat their lunch. If your camper exhibits signs of illness or informs their counselor they are not feeling well, we will bring them to the Camp Office and give you a call. We’ll let you know what’s happening and make a plan with you.
If a camper presents with a fever while at Camp, we will bring them to the Camp Office and give you a call. We will ask you to pick up your camper as soon as possible.
We ask that if your camper is not feeling well, that you keep them at home until they are feeling better. Please keep us informed so that we can check-in too!
What will happen if someone at Camp tests positive for COVID-19?
If someone from our Camp community tests positive for COVID-19, we will work with the Wake County Health Department to follow all necessary reporting and cleaning procedures. To maintain the privacy of our campers and staff, we will share information as we are directed by the Health Department.
Will campers be eating in the Dining Hall?
Due to social distancing restrictions, campers will not be eating in the Dining Hall but instead in shaded outside areas around Camp.
Will Kanata Day Camp still be a fun place?
Absolutely! This summer might look a little bit different at first but in no time, you will feel right at home. Our staff are some of the most creative people we know! Social-distancing won’t stop their ability to create meaningful and memorable experiences for all our campers.
Can I come for more than one week?
You bet! We would love to have you join us for all nine weeks of Kanata Day Camp. Our staff will change a bit from week to week but we know you’ll love each and every one of them.
