We are committed to offering safe and high-quality summer camp programming to our participants. In an effort to achieve that goal, staff continues to conduct evaluations of all camp programs in conjunction with guidance issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) the American Camp Association (ACA), Governor Ralph Northam, local health and government officials, and local camp providers. All camp families should understand that camp will look different. Campers must first pass a morning health check prior to being permitted into camp each day. Social distancing will be enforced for all campers and staff. For a listing of changes you can view them in the Falls Church Summer Camp Guidelines, download a PDF of our Summer Camp Guidelines 2020. We will continue to have further updates as information becomes available.
Indoor camps will run rain or shine. These camps are held in community centers and school buildings.
Outdoor camps may be canceled due to weather or field closures. These camps are run in parks, or on tennis courts or fields.
Campers and staff are required to wear masksthroughout the camp day, pursuant to the current state issued guidance,apart frommealtimes and mask breaks.
Camps will be following enhanced cleaning and sanitation protocols for maximum safety.
Group sizes will be assessed at each camp to allow for maximum participation while still maintaining either 6 or 10 ft. social distance, based upon the type of activity.
All camp activities will be modified to increase distancing and to meet sanitation requirements.
Campers will participate in a COVID screening via contactless questionnaires and temperature checks at the start of every camp day. Upon successful completion, campers will be permitted to sign into the camp program.
To limit the number of people gathering, we are implementing touch–free sign–in outside at camp entrances.
There are limited camps with extended hours to reduce contact between camp groups.
Campers or staff members who show signs of illness during the camp day will be isolated until they can be picked up.
Staff will ensure campers have limited contact with the public in shared areas such as walkways, hallways, restrooms, etc.
