ArtSpan Summer Camp Arrival & Dismissal Procedures
See diagrams below for regular + rainy-day processes
Camper families will stay in their cars and drive around the parking lot until they reach the flagged area (camper families who walk to camp can go to the front of the queue). The Senior Camp Counselor will greet families and have them log in. Campers will be greeted by counselors and volunteers and escorted to their color tent.
Teachers will be at the tents with a waiting activity that campers can do until everyone arrives.
Counselors will be responsible for checking in all campers. The Senior Counselor will make sure that these attendance sheets are brought to the camp office each morning, and will call any families with an absent camper to confirm that they will not be there for the day (or is just running late). Absences will be tracked for any possible inquiries by the Board of Health.
Camper families will follow the same path along the driveway to pick up their camper. When they arrive they will have a color-coded sign with their camper’s name. The Senior Camp Counselor will use a walkie-talkie to the counselor in that color group and that group’s counselor or volunteer will escort the camper to their car.
While waiting for their camper, the camper’s guardian will show their identification to the Senior Camp Counselor, who will check off the camper on the sign-out sheet.
Guardians who walk to pick up their camper can walk to the front of the queue.
RAINY DAY ARRIVALS
Camper families will still remain in cars, and drive to the back of the building until they reach the flagged area. The Senior Camp Counselor will greet families and have them log in.
Counselors will be waiting outside with umbrellas to greet new campers, and Volunteers will walk campers to their class using the designated doors assigned to their group. It is very important to only use the sidewalks, and to remember to socially distance.
As camper cohorts are to remain together for the week in an effort to reduce any possible spread of infection, groups will also only use the same doors.
RAINY DAY DISMISSAL
Camper families will drive to the back of the building until they reach the flagged area. The Senior Camp Counselor will greet families and sign them out in the same manner as regular dismissal.
If there appears to be a back-up of cars, guardians may move their car to beside the field to wait for their camper.
Counselors and volunteers will use the designated doors to bring campers to their car. It is very important to only use the sidewalks, and to remember to socially distance.
