Camp Safety

Ventilation and Air Quality

The morning and afternoon outdoor camps will be outside exclusively as long as air quality permits. Shade structures will be utilized during breaks as a respite from the sun. The distance learning camp will have maximum ventilation when air quality is in the orange or below (according to airnow.gov). The doors and windows will be open in the classrooms and air filters will be constantly running.

Hand-Washing & Surface Sterilization

All equipment at GrowFit camps will be sterilized before and after play. There are no exceptions to this rule. Gloves will be worn and a disinfectant meeting them minimum requirements as outlined by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) will be applied. MPCSD will sanitize play structures every day and only one cohort will use it each day. Campers will wash their hands on a regular basis and always before and after eating and after use of the bathroom.

No Symptoms Requirement

No staff member, child, or parent may exhibit signs of COVID-19, as defined by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) within fourteen (14) days of attending distance learning camps. There are no exceptions to the rule. Thermal temperature scans will be conducted on all persons entering our facilities and attending our camps. Anyone with temperatures of 100.4 degrees or higher will  not be permitted at camp and will be encouraged to seek medical attention.

On-Site Distance Learning Assistance
(2nd – 5th graders only)

Our camp staff will help students make virtual meetings and will check if school work is completed. In each camp, there will be a block or blocks that are set aside for virtual learning, and blocks that are reserved for outdoor activity. Our camp staff will do their best to assist your child with school work, virtual meetings, and connecting with the teacher as needed.

Stable Cohort of Fourteen (14)

GrowFit is committed to ensuring that your child stays within stable groups. These stable groups act as temporary “secondary households” to ensure that any exposure to COVID-19 is limited. The cohorts do not mix and will not come into contact with other groups or children. Within the cohort, six food distance will be enforced between campers with the understanding that California states “Physical distancing between young children in the same cohort should be balanced with developmental and socio‐emotional needs of this age group.”

Mask Wearing is Required 

Masks help prevent the spread of COVID-19 by protecting others from possible viral particulates that are airborne. This ensures a safe environment for everyone. All campers and camp staff are required to wear masks at all times except when eating over their mouths and noses. Neck gaiters and bandanas are not permissible masks. There will be mask breaks as needed.
