Please see a list below of policies in respnse to Covid-19.
- All parents will be asked to complete a health questionnaire prior to their child starting camp. If any members of the family start showing symptoms of Covid-19 whilst the child is attending camp all members of the family should self-isolate & not attend camp under any circumstances. Where possible, if the place can be filled, a full refund will be offered for the missed days. Where the days can’t be filled it will be at Managements discretion.
- Risk assessments will be carried out before the start of every week & will be conducted according to government, and other regulating authorities’ guidelines and advice.
- Children’s temperature will be taken at the start of each day to ensure no child enters camp with a temperature. If a child does have a temperature, they will be asked to wait 10 minutes and another test will be taken to ensure validity. If the child still has a temperature and parent is at registration, they will not be able to attend and asked to isolate for 24 hours.
- Children to be grouped by age and maximum group sized will be determined by government guidelines at time of operation. Company staff to children ratios will continue to be adhered to.
- Staff to wear PPE where professionally appropriate and should always use protective gloves when setting up signage and other camp materials. Staff to wear protective masks whenever in close contact with children and other staff members.
- Maximum capacity to be implemented as agreed with venues and Government guidelines.
- Activities are to take place in outdoor facilities wherever possible. If activities take place inside it must be in an open, well ventilated space.
- Children will eat lunch in their age groups, socially distanced. Where possible children can enjoy their lunch outdoors. If indoors they will do so whilst maintaining social distance.
- Hand sanitizer will be readily available including at registration and sign in points. All children will be encouraged to use hand sanitizer before and after eating as well as washing hands throughout the day.
- Staggered pick up times will be implemented or, in some cases, specific pick up locations for different age groups to ensure no ques of parents and so that social distancing can be adhered to.
- Staff teams will be kept as consistent as possible so that any changes in wellbeing can be observed and also to limit the possibility of bringing the virus in to the venue.
- Active Day Camps will keep a reserve work force available for each week if members of staff need to self-isolate.
The list above is not exhaustive and the aim for Active Day Camps is to be proactive and pragmatic this summer. We take the implementation of the above policies very seriously and will work throughout the summer to improve them and adapt them if necessary. We believe the policies will mitigate the risk for children and staff dramatically however we cannot guarantee the risk has been eliminated.
