What are you doing to prevent someone from bringing COVID-19 into camp?

We recognize, just as does every business and individual, that we will not be able to ensure with 100% certainty that COVID-19 is or is not transmitted within our programs, services, or facilities. We also recognize that there are individuals who are symptomatic and others who are asymptomatic. We also recognize that there are those who are spreading the virus when they are pre-symptomatic. Therefore, we are taking every possible measure to mitigate the spread of the virus including: Staff and Member education, protocol screening, travel restrictions, as well as enhanced cleaning and sanitizing measures, limited group sizes, and regularity of counselors and campers assigned to each camp group. These measures all align with CDC and Texas HHS recommendations.

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. We will have adequate supplies to support healthy hygiene behaviors, including soap, hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol (for staff and older children who can safely use hand sanitizer), tissues, and no-touch trash cans. We have posted signs on how to stop the spread of COVID-19, properly wash hands, promote everyday protective measures, and properly wear a face covering. Subject to change based on American Camp Association, CDC, and Dallas Department of Health Guidelines

Will staff receive additional safety training?

All JCC Camp Staff will be required to attend training sessions specific to COVID-19, our health and safety protocols related to COVID-19, and how to ensure for greater health and safety, prior to their first day of work. It will include the entire CDC Guidelines for Camps. Subject to change based on American Camp Association, CDC, and Dallas Department of Health Guidelines

Should my child bring their own hand sanitizer to camp?

The best prevention for contracting COVID-19 from a hard surface is hand-washing. Your children will wash their hands many, many, times each day. Hand sanitizer will only be used in instances where your child touches something and is unable to wash their hands in a short period of time. Your child’s counselors will have small quantities of hand sanitizer. If you would like for your child to have their own individual bottle, you can send it with them. However, again, our focus will be on frequent hand washing. Subject to change based on American Camp Association, CDC, and Dallas Department of Health Guidelines

Will my child have to wear a mask at camp?

All school-age campers will need to wear a mask each day indoors, except while eating & drinking.   Masks will not be required when playing outdoors with their pod and swimming. Camp Simchah campers will be able to remove their mask during eating, drinking, napping, swimming and other strenuous outdoor activities. We know that this a learning process and we will use positive reinforcement and encouragement to teach this skill.
