Rolling Hills Day Camp - COVID-19 Information

Summer camp looks different this year. 

We have followed guidance from the CDC, state, and local health experts to update our policies, practices and procedures that ensure the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene. We have also made appropriate accommodations for social distancing so that every person who walks through our doors can stay safe and protected. To ensure the health and safety of our campers and staff, new components of a healthy day camp include:  

Regular Temperature Checks & Health Screenings: Both staff and children will receive temperature checks and health screenings before being allowed to start their work shift or to check in. All campers will be screened upon arrival at the Lodge:

  • Parents will remain in their vehicles
  • Parents will scan QR code to answer Health Screening questions
  • If any answered questions are “Yes” camper will not be admitted to camp
  • Campers temperature will be taken with a no touch thermometer through the car window  
  • Campers will be monitored throughout the day for signs of illness.

Social Distancing: We are keeping children in the same group or pod(s). Pods will help with avoiding co-mingling of groups as much as possible. Campers within the same household can be together in the same pod. Camper to staff ratios are 10:1. Campers will remain in the same pod at their home base (until switch time and changes will be made as necessary). Home bases will be located at the following pavilions:  

  • Sunshine
  • Woodlands 
  • Lodge patio

Arrival and Departures: Parents will be asked to stay in the car and/or not enter the facilities. We are limiting access to the building for camp participants and staff only. All campers and visitors are required to wear face coverings upon arrival and departure when communicating with a staff member and/or if less than 6ft away. The lodge roundabout will be the location for pickup and drop-off. Designated routes for entry and exit having been set in place.

Water Park Visits: TBA

PPE: All staff and campers will be required to wear masks and other personal protective equipment when in close interactions with each other. 

Regular Cleaning & Disinfecting: We will be cleaning with great frequency our equipment, facilities, and curriculum items between use and/or pods. Disinfecting will occur several times per day on frequently touched surfaces/equipment by campers and staff with approved cleaning products issued by Washtenaw County Department. 

Stay Home If You’re Sick Or Not Feeling Well: We request parents partner with us in keeping our staff and campers healthy by monitoring the health of your children by not sending them to the camp if they exhibit any symptom of COVID-19. If your child exhibits symptoms, report results to the day camp staff.  

Any policy updates, sanitizing procedures or so forth are being implemented to comply with CDC guidelines and the Washtenaw County Health Department. If you have any questions please email [email protected] .
