- All programs will have small group sizes, 12 participants maximum.
- Groups must remain with a stable group for a 3-week period (no children may be added or transferred within the 3-week period).

Children may not be enrolled in any other childcare or similar program or institution during the duration of this program.
- Pick-up/Drop-Off - Only one parent/guardian may drop off or pick up. Social distancing guidelines (6ft spacing) will be enforced during drop off and pick up.

Each program space will be sanitized periodically throughout the day and nightly.
- Breaks - Campers must bring their own snack, water bottle and lunch (if directed) each day. Breaks will be taken outdoors when possible.
