What resources does the YMCA of Metropolitan Washington have in place to respond to illness at camp?
The health and safety of our community is a top priority and staff are trained to monitor the health of all campers and staff. The YMCA is committed to responding quickly to any suspicions of illness. If there are any suspicions of illness, the family will be immediately contacted and the person will be isolated in a pre-determined safe space. The YMCA continues to modify and update its current health policies to meet the need of providing camp during COVID-19.
What are you doing to keep campers and staff safe?
Our staff will be trained to teach and supervise the practice of proper hygiene, including but not limited to:
- Handwashing, or when soap and water are not readily available, hand sanitizing
- Sanitary food preparation and dish sanitizing (where necessary)
- Reminders not to touch one’s face with unwashed hands
- Covering sneezes and coughs into the elbow, or if available, into a disposable tissue
- Not sharing personal care items
- Designating personal supplies for camp
Will children be permitted to wear PPE if they wish to? Will children be required to wear PPE?
All locations will follow the guidelines and regulations as provided by their local jurisdiction. Any one that prefers to wear PPE even if the jurisdiction is not requiring PPE is permitted to do so.
If we choose to cancel camp and opt to move a credit to future programs, when must that credit be used?
All credits from programs in 2020 must be used by December 31, 2021.
Can another family member use a credit from camp programs? Does the credit need to be used specifically for camp or can I pay for something else like membership fees or classes with the credit?
The YMCA of Metropolitan Washington operates under the “One Y” motto. This means you will be able to apply a credit from camp to programs for another family member or different programs at any of our locations (ie. Membership fees, classes, etc.).
