School Break Camps

Camp Health and Safety Information

The Recreation and Parks Department is committed to offering safe and high-quality, and enjoyable camp programs to all participants. The health and safety of all camp participants, staff, and their families remains our paramount goal. The structure and operations of all 2022 camp offerings have been adjusted in an effort to achieve and maintain the highest levels of health and safety while providing a rewarding camp experience. These revised structures and operations ensure compliance with all state and local health and safety guidelines. 

Among the health and safety practices adopted for camp programs are enrollment maximums which ensure social distancing, the wearing of masks by all campers and staff when indoors, and thorough cleaning of all camp spaces and equipment. Changes to these practices and policies may occur to ensure both the highest level of safety for all participants and compliance with all mandated guidelines and requirements.
