Safety Questions

Willamalane is implementing extensive measures around physical distancing and sanitation to keep campers, families, and staff as safe as possible as we follow all current guidelines and recommendations.

What changes did you make for the 2020 summer camps?
We are reducing the number of camps offered so we can maintain smaller, stable group sizes. Each camp will have no more than ten kids in the same group, with the same staff. We will be encouraging physical distancing in groups as much as possible. We will also implement an even more restrictive sanitation process and illness monitoring protocols. We suggest that siblings register for camps at the same location so we can better maintain stable groups of staff and children.

Are there any specialty camps?

No, we do not have specialty camps this year. Those tend to involve lots of physical contact between campers, as well as the use of shared materials. Camp Willamalane and Camp Venture will limit those risk factors to create the safest camp experience possible.

Will Willamalane track any illness symptoms or outbreaks?
Yes. We will be checking for symptoms of new coughs or fevers for anyone entering the area where there are campers. If we suspect an illness or infection, we will isolate the camper and contact a parent or guardian, so they can go home. 

If campers or staff, or anyone in their household, has recently had an illness with a fever or a new cough, they should remain at home until: 
  • At least ten days after illness onset, 
  • 72 hours after the fever is gone without using fever-reducing medicine, 
  • Symptoms are improving.
Campers or staff who have had direct exposure to COVID-19, will not be able to return until 14 days after the exposure, assuming they do not exhibit symptoms. We will also be keeping daily logs for each stable group to help identify anyone at-risk, should there be any illness associated with a camper or staff member.

What policies are in place for Willamalane staff and teachers taking care of campers?
This year at summer camps, staff will interact with the same group of campers. Willamalane staff will have thorough training of all new safety and program protocols before camps begin, including policies around face coverings and increased sanitation. Read more about what safety measures Willamalane staff are taking.

Will campers and teachers have to wear face coverings?
Effective July 1, children under 12 are not required to wear a face covering while indoors. However, any child older than 12 is required to. Therefore, programs like Two50, Camp Venture, or middle school athletes fall into the required classification. They would not be required to wear a mask while exercising, eating, or when outside and able to maintain a six-foot distance. We strongly recommend that children ages 2-12 wear a face covering with supervision from an adult.

All staff interacting with patrons must all now wear masks while indoors or while unable to maintain a six-foot difference while outdoors.

What changes to pick-up and drop-off are you making?
This depends on the camp location. Once your family is registered, we will share check-in information, drop off and pick-up sites, and any other information families will need to know. Parents will remain outside of the camp area for drop off and pick up.

What sanitation procedures are you taking?
We are closely following and staying up-to-date on statewide and industry guidelines to keep our campers, families, and staff safe. To keep us all healthy, we have developed guidelines for daily health checks, physical distancing, handwashing, sanitizing items, classroom cleaning, adjusted activities, meals and snacks, and drop off and pick up.
