Health and Safety

The Saints Summer Experience Leadership Team has been closely monitoring the current pandemic situation and has revised our camp policies and safety procedures with input from medical experts and other professionals within our St. Andrew’s community. We are constantly reviewing guidelines from the CDC and the State Department of Health and are observing public health trends and statistics. 

Our main goal is to preserve the unique, timeless experience of Summer Camp, while keeping all of our campers and staff safe and healthy.

Camp Health and Safety Procedures

To reduce the risk of spreading sickness and infection among campers and staff, we will institute strict new health and safety procedures, maintaining four areas of focus: Health Screening, Hygiene and Sanitization, Contact Reduction, and Health Monitoring. We will have a dedicated team of Camp Health and Safety Workers who will ensure compliance with all established health and safety guidelines. See below for more information on each area of focus.

List of 4 items.

  • Health Screening

    All Camp Staff and Campers will be screened daily, upon entrance to camp. Daily screening will consist of a series of questions, and temperature screening. Anyone with a forehead temperature exceeding 100.4 F or failing to respond satisfactorily to the questionnaire will NOT be allowed to enter camp. Only screened campers and camp staff will be allowed to enter any buildings on campus.

    All campers and camp staff will be required to wash their hands thoroughly upon entry to camp, and at regular intervals throughout the day. Hand sanitizer with an alcohol content of at least 60% will be readily available at multiple locations throughout camp. All public areas and especially high-touch surfaces will be cleaned and sanitized regularly throughout the day. Camp staff will wear face coverings when in public areas. Camp housekeeping staff will be following CDC guidelines for daily deep cleaning and sanitization of all classrooms, public areas and restrooms. Younger campers should not bring nap materials other than a freshly laundered blanket. All campers should bring a freshly laundered towel each day for water play.
  • Contact Reduction

    Where possible, in public areas and group recreation areas, gatherings will be limited to small groups of campers, and social distancing of at least six feet will be encouraged by camp staff. We are focusing on group activities that naturally facilitate social distancing. All camp buildings will have clearly marked, restricted entrances and exits, and where possible, we will restrict pedestrian traffic to one-way, to limit passing and interaction.

    All meals and snacks will be eaten inside classrooms in small groups.
  • Health Monitoring

    In addition to daily intake screenings, all camp staff will engage in continual health monitoring of campers. If a camper or staff member appears to be exhibiting symptoms of sickness, they will be removed from their group and monitored. Their temperature will be taken and recorded. If they are, in fact, displaying fever or other symptoms, they will be isolated (with proper supervision) and a parent or guardian will need to pick them up from our designated isolation space within 30 minutes. Guidelines for returning to camp will be determined on a case-by-case basis.
