COVID-19 Safety plan 

Dear Parents, 

First and foremost, we hope that you and your loved ones are safe and healthy. We have received questions from parents about if and how COVID-19 will affect Enriched Maverick’s Financial Fun Camp in 2021. We know this pandemic has been stressful to many but we also recognize that socializing and interacting with peers can be a healthy way for children to cope with stress and connect with others, particularly after spending quite a bit of time at home.

 

After careful thought and planning, we are excited to let you know that we plan to hold camp in 2021 while following CDC considerations to protect campers, families, and our community.  The health and safety of our campers and staff remain our highest priority. Below, you will find a summary of actions we are taking to help ensure we are lowering COVID-19 risk as much as possible. We are:

 

  • Intensifying cleaning and disinfection practices within our facilities and premises  by cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces (e.g., equipment, drinking fountains, and door handles) and objects (e.g., craft supplies, toys, and games), and ensuring safe and correct use and storage of disinfectants;

  • Requiring all staff who eligible to receive the vaccine to do so;

  • Hosting the camp with about 25 campers in a space with a  designated capacity for 110 people;

  • Keeping campers in small groups of four and spacing them out by seating only four children at our 10-person tables and putting tape on the floors and signs on the wall to indicate 6 feet;

  • Limiting the number of items that are shared or touched between campers and staff  by providing individual supplies/equipment to each camper;

  • Promoting healthy hygiene practices by teaching campers and staff the importance of washing their hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, monitoring campers to make sure they are washing their hands, providing campers with hand sanitizer, encouraging children to cover their coughs and sneezes with a tissue or to use the inside of their elbow, and posting signs about these healthy habits around the camp facility;

  • Having an Epidemiologist train staff on proper COVID procedures and be on call during camp to answer any and all staff questions;

  

  • Requesting that all staff, campers, and parents wear a cloth face covering during the day;

  • Having a contactless morning drop-off and afternoon pick up procedure; 

  • If a child does get sick at camp, we have identified an area where they can rest, be watched after, and safely isolate from others. We will communicate with parents or caretakers directly and, if necessary, arrange for the child to be taken to a healthcare facility for care.

We ask that you help us protect the health of campers this summer. Anyone who is sick or was sick with COVID-19 or recently in contact with someone with COVID-19 in the last 14 days— including staff, campers, and families— should not come to camp.

 

Be on the lookout for symptoms of COVID-19, which include fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, muscle pain, sore throat, and loss of taste or smell. Call your doctor if you think you or a family member is sick.

 

If you have a specific question about this plan, please contact us for more information. You can also find more information about COVID-19 at www.cdc.gov/coronavirus.

 

We look forward to seeing you this summer.
