Summer Intensive and Day Camp: COVID Protocols

Summer is here!  If you are looking for a fun and educational way for your kids to spend their days this July, Trinity has you covered! Our “Summer Up! Intensive and Day Camp” is a mini-crash course in supporting your child’s individual learning style with all the same fun perks of a classic day camp. This year’s camp sessions will include some new safety measures such as social distancing, daily disinfectant protocols, and vigorous hand-washing.

Enrolled students spend their mornings learning a highly-individualized curriculum in math, language arts, and  reading therapy.   In the afternoon they spend time playing, crafting and exploring. Through proven research-based methods, ongoing testing and assessments, Trinity School teachers can identify what struggles a student might have in school. From there, we design a tailored program that incites growth for each student!

The safety and health of our staff, students, parents, and visitors is our utmost priority. Our preparedness plan for managing the COVID-19 outbreak has been adapted from CDC Guidance for Summer Camps for all group activities. Based on CDC guidelines, Trinity School has adopted the following safeguards for our Summer Up! campers, instructors and camp director to reduce the risk of COVID-19 exposure and spread during camp sessions and activities.

Our COVID-19 Summer UP! Protocols

Trinity Protocols

  • Trinity will check and record the body temperatures of all staff and campers each day using a touch-free digital thermometer.
  • Trinity will ask screening questions daily to determine risk.  During our first day of camp our staff will educate campers and their families about when they should stay home and when they can return to camp.
    • Trinity School will direct employees and campers who are sick or have recently had close contact with a person known to be carrying COVID-19 to stay home.
    • Trinity School will also require employees and campers to stay home if they have tested positive for or are showing COVID-19 symptoms.
    • Campers who show any symptoms will be removed from the group and evaluated immediately to determine if they are required to return home.  If your child has allergies, please inform the staff.
  •  During the day
    • Signs will be posted to remind campers to wash and sanitize their hands.
    • Time will be built into the daily schedule to allow for frequent handwashing.
    • Staff is minimizing sharing items like pencils, markers, etc. as well as moving items between home and school. All items that require sharing will be cleaned and disinfected.
    • If food is offered at any event, it will be served as pre-packaged boxes or bags for each attendee, not as a buffet or family-style meal.

As a reminder, COVID-19 typically spreads through respiratory droplets expelled while talking, coughing and sneezing.  It may also spread from contaminated surfaces to the mouth and nose.  You can do your part to keep Trinity School safe by staying home when sick, frequent hand-washing, and routine cleaning and disinfecting of high traffic surfaces.
