Camp Health & Safety Guidelines
View All Section Pages
Our campers' health and safety are always our top priority. Given the guidance that open air is better at preventing the spread of COVID-19, Cooper Fitness Center has the benefit of our 30-acre campus with an abundance of outdoor space including four tennis courts and two pools. In addition, in compliance with state guidelines for day youth camp operators, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines and American Camp Association recommendations, we have implemented the summer camp health and safety guidelines below.
Daily Health Screening and Temperature Check
All campers, counselors and instructors will have their temperature checked daily and will be asked the following questions:
- Are you experiencing any flu-like symptoms (for example, headache, runny nose, dry cough and sore throat)?
- Are you concerned you may have a contagious illness such as COVID-19 or the flu?
- Are you concerned you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19?
- Is anyone in your household currently under quarantine?
FIT & FUN DAY CAMPS
- Masks required to be worn by campers and camp staff during drop-off and pickup and at all times indoors
- Increased sanitization procedures to ensure surfaces and equipment are sanitized many times throughout the day

- Utilizing additional gathering areas to allow for physical distancing of campers and their personal items during breaks and lunch
- Enhanced employee training
