    Operating during COVID-19

    Our program will have a written communicable disease management plan. This plan includes:

    ● Protocols to notify the Local Public Health Authority (LPHA) of any confirmed COVID-19 cases among campers or staff.

    ● A process and record keeping to assist the LPHA as needed with contact tracing.

    ● A protocol for screening campers and staff for symptoms.

    ● A protocol to restrict from camp any child who is ill or exposed to the virus.

    ● And possible cancellation of camp activities.

    During check in our staff will check for new coughs and fever for anyone entering the camp facility/area or interacting with campers and staff. Anyone with a fever greater than or equal to 100.4° F will not be allowed to enter. COVID-19 does not always present with temperature or new cough. Symptoms of COVID-19 include fever and new cough, as well as, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fever, chills, muscle pain, sore throat, and new loss of taste or smell. As a safeguard staff will check temperature at check in.

    If a camper or staff member develops a new cough (e.g., unrelated to pre-existing condition such as asthma), fever, shortness of breath, or other symptoms of COVID-19 during the camp day, they will be isolated away from others immediately, and sent home as soon as possible.

    While waiting for a sick child to be picked up, a staff member will stay with the child in a room isolated from others. The staff member will remain as far away as safely possible from the child (preferably at least 6 feet), while remaining in the same room. The affected individual should remain home for at least 10 days after illness onset and until 72 hours after fever is gone, without use of fever reducing medicine, and COVID-19 symptoms (fever, cough, shortness of breath, and diarrhea) are improving.

    If anyone who has entered the camp facility is diagnosed with COVID-19, Wippersnappers will report to and consult with the local public health authority regarding cleaning and potential need for closure.

    Physical Distancing

    Camps will be limited to maximum stable groups of 10 or fewer children (“stable” means the same 10 or fewer children in the group each day).

    The number of staff interacting with the group of children will be minimized. If “floater staff” or different staff rotate with the stable group, they will be sure to sanitize their hands prior to entering the space with the stable group of children, and staff will be wearing face masks.

    Daily activities will support physical distancing, striving to maintain at least 6 feet between individuals as much as possible.

    ● Increased distancing between children during table work.

    ● Planned activities that do not require close physical contact among multiple campers.

    ● designated equipment (e.g., art supplies, musical instruments balls, mitts, etc.) solely for the use by a single camper and sanitize between practices or uses. If equipment must be shared between campers, it will be sanitized before and after each use.

    ● Minimize time standing in lines and take steps to ensure that 6 feet of distance between the campers is maintained.

    Cleaning, disinfecting, and ventilation

    Wippersnappers prides ourselves in the cleanliness of our facility. We promise to continue to maintain a clean, sanitized and safe facility for your campers to play. We promise to:

    ● Clean, sanitize, and disinfect frequently touched surfaces (for example, playground equipment, door handles, sink handles, drinking fountains) multiple times per day

    ● Avoid use of items (for example, soft or plush toys) that are not easily cleaned, sanitized, or disinfected.

    ● Ensure safe and correct application of disinfectants and keep these products away from children.

    ● Ensure that ventilation systems operate properly and increase circulation of outdoor air as much as possible.

    ● Providing sanitation stations throughout the facility.

    ● Designating hand washing times at increased intervals, especially before meals and after respiratory etiquette (blowing nose, covering cough or sneeze), or restroom use.

    Age Guidelines:

    The Wippersnappers Day Camp is for children ranging in age from 3 to 10 years old – no exceptions will be made at this time.

    Hours of Operation:

    The Wippersnappers Day Camp hours are 9:00am – 3:00pm for the 5-10 year olds,  9:00am – 1:00pm for the 4-5 year olds, 9:00am – 12:00pm for the 3 year olds and 5:00pm – 8:00pm for the Parents Night Out camps. Please do not drop off your child prior to the start time of camp. Dates for the camp are to be determined

    Drop-Off Procedures:

    Children need to arrive between 9:00am – 9:15am. Parent/guardians must park their vehicle and walk their child to the front door and sign the child into the Camp with the director. If there are multiple campers waiting to sign in, social distancing standards must be followed. To minimize contamination in the facility, all parents will be met at the door and sign their camper in. There will be a series of health screening questions during the sign in process. Once the camper is signed in, a camp leader will escort the camper in where they will sanitize their hands before entering the facility.

    Pick-up Procedures:

    Children must be picked up at 3:00pm for the 5-10 year old camps, 1:00pm for the 4-5 year old camps and 12:00pm for the 3 year old camps. Parent/guardians must park their vehicle and walk to the front door to sign the child out of the Camp with the director.

    Late Pick-Up Policy:

    There will be a late-fee assessed for children who are picked up 15 minutes after camp ends. The late fee is $1.00 for each minute past 15 minutes of camp ending. Repeated late pick-ups may result in the removal of the participant from the program, with no refund for prepaid programs.

    Medical Needs/Allergies:

    Wippersnappers is not permitted to administer medication to program participants. In the event of a medical emergency, Wippersnappers will administer first aid, CPR, and dial 911 if needed. Parents will be contacted if care is administered.

    Special Circumstances:

    Parents and guardians are required to inform Wippersnappers in writing of any special needs which may affect the child’s ability to participate fully and within the guidelines of acceptable behavior, including, but not limited to, any serious behavioral problems or special circumstances regarding psychological, medical, or physical conditions. Once the notice is submitted, a phone call will be scheduled with the parent/guardian to discuss the special circumstances and whether Wippersnappers can accommodate the circumstances.

    Dress Code:

    Children should dress appropriately for the activities scheduled. Wippersnappers recommends shorts and a light weight shirt or top, and some type of athletic shoe or sneaker in order to participate in recreational or athletic activities. Socks must be worn while in the play structure.

    Sandals, flip-flops, rubber “crocs”-style shoes, and other open-toed shoes are not recommended as acceptable attire for active recreation activities. Shirts should have a minimum of 1” wide shoulder straps. Clothing should be age appropriate.

    Personal Belongings:

    Children should not bring toys, mobile phones, electronic devices, jewelry, money, or any possession of value with them to any of the programs. Children will be responsible for their own belongings.

    Behavior Management/Discipline Policy:

    Wippersnappers staff will create a fun and safe environment for participants in the program. Praise and positive reinforcement are used as effective methods of behavior management. Children who do not respond to these methods or who are destructive to others or to property will be dealt with in a professional, positive, and timely manner to correct the behavior. The following procedures will be followed for behavior management. All incident reports will be discussed privately with parents/guardians and a copy of each report will be kept on file at Wippersnappers. We encourage self regulation and mindfulness. We will direct a cooling down period if Wippersnappers staff feel necessary.

    1. In the event a child’s behavior is a repeated behavior and cannot be corrected by the Wippersnappers Staff with a verbal warning or other form of behavior modification, a first incident report will be written to document and correct behavior. A copy of the report will be given to the parent/guardian the same day as the incident.

    2. A second incident report will be written if the behavior is repeated by or new behavior problems occur with the same child. This report will follow the same process as the first, but a one or two- day suspension could accompany this report, and no refund will be provided for suspended days. A copy of the report will be given to the parent/guardian the same day as the second incident.

    3. A third incident report will be completed using the same process as the first two. The Wippersnappers staff will write this report. Staff will provide this report to the parent/guardian. Incident reports will be discussed privately with a parent/guardian by a Wippersnappers staff and Camp Director. Dismissal from a program can occur at this time. NOTE: Immediate dismissal from the program can occur at any time given severe circumstances. Refunds for missed days due to a discipline dismissal will not be granted.

    Nutrition/Snacks:

    Children must refrain from bringing any food or drink into Wippersnappers. Please feed your child breakfast before drop off. All lunches and snacks will be provided following FDA nutritional guidelines. Milk or juice will be offered during lunch, water intake is encouraged throughout the day. Parents must notify Camp Director of any dietary restrictions prior to registration. Wippersnappers is a peanut free facility. Please do not send gum or candy.
