What does drop off and pick up look like at camp?

All drop off and pick up will be through carpool and parents will remain in their vehicles as we help children exit. The process will be broken down into the following steps: At home fill out your daily screening form and keep the screen available on your phone Enter campus through the west entrance lane (the right lane closest to Northaven Gardens) at the main entrance. Show the app screen to the staff member at the screening stops. Once your child has passed the screening, the screener will help your child out of the car, and they will be walked to their group. Please note: The above protocols are from the 2021-22 school year and may change for our 2022 camp sessions. As things are evolving so will our plans for grouping and traveling.

Will my child have to reapply sunscreen by themselves?

Yes, your children will need to reapply their own sunscreen this summer. Please apply sunscreen on your child before arriving at camp.  At camp your child’s counselors will coach them on this process, visually observe them applying sunscreen, and help them to build this important life skill. Won’t it be amazing when they have this skill to use at home?!  Camp Simchah campers can bring spray sunscreen for counselors to reapply.

What other hygiene practices will be implemented this summer?

Counselors will teach and reinforce washing hands and covering coughs and sneezes among children and staff. Counselors will teach and reinforce the use of cloth face coverings among all staff and campers. Staff and children will be frequently reminded not to touch the face covering and to wash their hands Information will be provided to all staff and campers on proper use, removal, and washing of cloth face coverings.
