Covid-19 Youth Program Policies

Acknowledgment of Risk 

As we know, COVID-19 will be with us for the foreseeable future. No matter what procedures and protocols are put in place, there is simply no way to guarantee that COVID-19 or any other communicable disease will not enter camp. By the very nature of the personal interactions that take place in a school or camp environment, there is always a risk of your child(ren) contracting this or any other disease or infection. 

We welcome you to call our office (920-465-2775) with any questions related to COVID-19. We would be happy to discuss our policies and procedures to help you determine if camp is a good fit for you and your child(ren) this summer. If 2022 isn’t the right summer for your family to come to camp, we hope to see you in the future!

2022 Policies/Procedures

Prior to your daily arrival at camp, we ask that you do a self-assessment of your child(ren). If your child(ren) has any of the following symptoms, even if very mild, before arriving to campus each day, DO NOT come to camp that day:

  • Fever or chills
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea
In addition, if anyone else in your household has any of the above symptoms, even if mild, we ask that you keep your child(ren) home from camp. Also, if your child(ren) has been in contact with someone who was diagnosed with COVID-19 or has been told to self-quarantine or isolate by Public Health in the 14 days prior to the first day of camp, we ask that you keep your child(ren) home from camp. 

Masks are not required at this time.

As always, some aspects of this policy and procedures may change before your camper’s session start date. Should anything change, we will update this page AND alert you via email.

  3. Participant will be isolated until they either have a negative test result or return home.
If a participant tests positive during a program for COVID-19
If a participant tests positive during a camp for COVID-19 with an Abbott Binax NOW rapid test, the following steps will take place:
  1. The student will be isolated immediately.
  2. We will notify parent/guardian to pick up the participant within one hour of notification.
  3. We will identify and list close contacts of the participant.
  4. We will communicate the possible exposure to teachers, staff, and parents, guardians or caregivers of students in the program.
  5. We will communicate with campus facility managers and implement our campus disinfecting and cleaning plan.
  6. We will work with campus leadership to assess transmission levels and support any contact tracing efforts requested by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) or our local public health department.
  7. We will notify close contact participants and staff to:
    1. Quarantine for 14 days
    2. Consult with their healthcare provider for evaluation
    3. Wait 4-5 days before testing unless symptoms develop
  8.  We will communicate with teachers, staff, and parents, guardians or caregivers the importance of COVID-19 mitigation strategies (e.g., staying home when sick, washing hands, wearing masks, social distancing).
  9. We will inform the participant that they can return to programming after meeting criteria for ending home isolation.

After Your Youth Program

Student parents & guardians are required to report to UW-Green Bay if their student shows signs or symptoms of COVID-19, or tests positive for COVID-19 within three days of leaving camp.

Cancellation/Reimbursement Policy

  1. If student must cancel for medical reasons, including COVID-19, prior to the start of camp full refunds are provided. 
  2. If a student is excluded from camp at any time due to becoming infected, experiencing symptoms during the youth program or being contact traced resulting in their exclusion, a prorated refund will be given based on the program fee and hours present at the program. This will be calculated by taking the percentage of hours left of the program multiplied by the program fee to get the prorated refund amount.
