2020 SUMMER ADVENTURE CAMPS

Updated 5-12-20

COVID-19 UPDATE

Dear Summer Adventure Camp Parents and Campers,

As COVID-19 reopening information is continuously being updated by state and local officials, we want to ensure you that the safety, security, emotional, and physical well-being of our members and staff remains our top priority.  Although we hope to open summer camps on schedule, we will only do so under the advice and guidelines of local and state health authorities. As we closely monitor the road map to reopening, we urge you to follow the Stay-at-Home order as we all work to flatten the curve together.

We are looking forward to the summer season and being with our members again in our Summer Adventure Camps program!  We know you will have questions and concerns, as do we, and we will do our best to keep you updated as we go along.  We don’t have all the answers at the moment but are doing our best to have plans in place as restrictions change.  We are still uncertain at this time our ability to offer specialty camps and field trips, and we know our summer camps program will look different.  We are planning to offer day camps and are taking the necessary steps to ensure our staff are properly trained in current social distancing and sanitation guidelines.

We will very likely be implementing the following:

  • Temperature checks
  • Increased hand sanitizer stations
  • Increased disinfection of frequently touched surfaces
  • The use of face masks as required
  • Increased space between tables and activities
  • Staggered arrival and departure times or specific drop off and pick up zones
  • Staggered lunch and snack times

We appreciate your patience and continued support during this time.  We hope to have Summer Camp information updated soon and look forward to opening our doors again!

Best regards,

Candace Gerlach
Director of Club Services
Boys & Girls Clubs of San Dieguito
