Save Summer, Join Swim & Gym Summer Camp!
Summer: Day 28
Real Feel: Day 4,358,090
Seriously y’all. I LOVE summer. It is something us Wisconsinites look forward to ALL winter long….but Summer 2020 comes with its obvious limitations, making parenting a whole new ballgame.
A typical summer for my family usually includes a road trip out of state (cancelled!), many trips to our very own Madison Children’s Museum (closed!), lots of time with grandparents (who are not ready to see us quite yet), backyard get togethers with a group of neighbors and festivals galore (see you next year, Cream Puffs).
Yes, 2020 looks different.
BUT. There are always things to do and we are all doing what we can to squeeze as much joy and excitement out of a pretty odd season. With another 8 weeks left til school starts back up, there’s plenty of time to Save Your Summer and sign your kiddo up for a weeklong Swim & Gym Summer Camp!
With themes like Spy Kids, Shark Week, Harry Potter and Pokemon Go, each camp offers a week of activity, crafts and socialization. Sessions are tailored to the child’s age and skill level, and will keep your kids happy and active all week long.
If you’ve been hesitating on signing your child up for activities because of Covid 19, or if you are curious about how Swim & Gym Camp is making camp safe for its campers read the following safety precautions they’ve put together.
- Our high energy, FUN atmosphere
- The same highly trained and excited counselors
- Extended care will be provided before and after camp if interested
- A minimum of 3 swimming or gymnastics lessons each week (depending on which location your child is attending)
- Using open green spaces within walking distance
Here’s What Will Change:
- Temperature checks and screening questions at arrival to camp
- Drop off and Pick up by car
- Staff will be wearing PPE including gloves and face covering at check in and check out
- Field trips may need to be cancelled
- High touch surfaces will be cleaned and sanitized regularly
- Frequent hand washing (before and after group activities)
- Increased arts, crafts and STEAM projects
Here are Our Safety Protocols:
- Staff who are showing signs of illness will be sent home and we will follow the CDC guidelines for their return to work
- We will ask any participants who may be showing signs of illness to stay home
- We will increase intentional hand-washing breaks into our programming
- We will add additional cleaning supplies and custodial service to our common spaces
- We will modify team building activities and are encouraging smiles and head nods instead of high fives and handshakes
- We are updating screening protocols prior to attendance at camp
We understand what a challenging time this is for families and want to do all we can to provide a safe, FUN week for our campers. If you have any questions about our updated protocols, please give us a call!
