Welcome to Bellevue Parks & Community Services 2021 Summer Day Camps!  Our goal is to provide a safe, healthy, fun and enriching experience for all campers. We look forward to seeing you and your family back at our camps this summer. To provide your child with a safe camp experience, we have implemented a number of health and safety guidelines in response to the coronavirus pandemic.  Please note: these guidelines and procedures are subject to change based on updated guidance from public health authorities.

To meet these safety guidelines and requirements, we have limited the number of participants in our camps in order to maintain physical distancing.  We have also established screening procedures and other policies outlined below. We ask that you review the procedures below prior to registering your child for summer day camps.

It is important for children to stay home when sick. If your child has any of the following symptoms that are not caused by another condition, they may not attend camp:  Fever of 100.4 degrees or higher, or chills; cough; shortness of breath; difficulty breathing; unusual fatigue; muscle or body aches; headache; recent loss of taste or smell; sore throat; congestion or runny nose; nausea; vomiting; or diarrhea.

Additionally, if your child has been in close contact with someone who has a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19 in the last 14 days they may not attend camp. It is essential for the safety of your child and the safety of all campers and staff that parents notify City staff immediately if their child tests positive for COVID-19 or is in close contact with someone with a confirmed case of COVID-19.

COVID-19 Safety Policies and Procedures for Campers covers what precautions staff are implementing to keep campers safe while at camp. Make sure to review these guidelines with your child, especially the use and importance of face coverings, physical distancing, and hand washing.

All campers will be required to wear a face covering, maintain physical distancing, complete a daily health screening, and maintain good hand hygiene during camp. Please see Camp Procedures below for full details. Please review these procedures prior to registering your child for camp.

The following procedures have been established for our 2021 summer day camps. Please review these procedures fully prior to registering your child for camp.

Day camp staff will:

  • Be trained in COVID-19 safety requirements, will complete daily health screenings prior to the start of their work shift, and will always wear face coverings.
  • Wash hands frequently including when entering or leaving a facility or program space, before and after eating, before and after restroom use, and between activities and equipment use.
  • Prior to the start of the first day of camp, inform parents/guardians/caregivers if campers will be accessing public restrooms in city parks.

Drop-off and pick-up procedures have been modified. 

Respecting 6-foot physical distancing requirements at all times, parents/guardians/caregivers/authorized adults will:

  • Complete a daily health screening for their child
  • Present photo ID, and check their child in/out while remaining outside the facility
  • Ensure camper washes their hands or uses hand sanitizer before entering and upon exiting the facility/camp area

As recommended by the Washington State Department of Health, we encourage you to have the same parent/guardian drop off and pick up your child each day if possible.

Face coverings/masks will be required.  

All campers will be required to wear a face covering during camp at all times, including sports and outdoor youth program activities. Parents/guardians will also be required to wear a face covering when dropping off and picking up their child. If your child is unable to wear a face covering, please notify staff as soon as possible.  More information on cloth face coverings and masks is available from Washington State Department of Health.

Proper face coverings and masks:

  • Have 2 or more layers
  • Allow you to breathe
  • Have tightly woven fabrics such as cotton
  • Fit snuggly over nose and mouth with no large gaps, covering your nose and mouth at all times
  • Neck gaiters, scarves, bandanas, etc. are not suitable substitutes, unless used over a mask

Always wash your hands with soap and water, or use hand sanitizer, before you put on a face covering and after removing it.  Change your face covering when it gets moist, and wash your reusable face covering after each use.

Daily Health Screenings

Each day parents/guardian must answer COVID-19 screening questions for their child, including if you have taken your child’s temperature. If your child has not had their temperature taken at home that day, staff will take your child’s temperature at check in. Presentation of any of the COVID-19 symptoms listed below will prevent a camper from attending camp that day. Should your child become ill during camp, staff may check their temperature and will record symptoms and you will be contacted to pick them up and given further instructions about returning to camp.

Health Screening Questions for Entry into Camp or City facility:

Parents or guardians will answer the following COVID-19 health screening questions for their child.  

  1. Does your child have any of the following symptoms within the last day that are not caused by another condition? (If it is the first day after a break or for a new child, please ask about the past 3 days).
  • Fever of 100.4°F or higher or chills
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Unusual fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
  • Recent loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  1. Within the past 14 days, has your child has been in close contact with anyone with a  confirmed case of COVID-19 or COVID-like symptoms? Close contact is being within 6 feet for 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period with a person; or having direct contact with fluids from a person with COVID-19 with or without wearing a mask (i.e., being coughed or sneezed on).
     
  2. Has your child had a positive COVID-19 test for active virus in the past 10 days, or is your child awaiting results of a COVID-19 test?
     
  3. Within the past 14 days, has a public health or medical professional told your child to self-monitor, self-isolate, or self-quarantine because of concerns about COVID-19 infection?

If the answer is “yes” to any of the above questions, that child cannot attend camp on that day. 

 

Exposure

If there is a suspect or positive COVID-19 case at camp and your child had close contact with this camp group/cohort, parents or guardians of children in that camp group/cohort will be informed by the city. Public Health of Seattle and King County will be notified of any confirmed COVID-19 cases.

Groupings/Cohorts

Physical distancing between individual participants, groups of participants, and participants and staff will be maintained at all times during the camp. Campers will be assigned a dedicated space for the length of the camp. Different groupings/cohorts will not mix. Participants will not share supplies or equipment with each other unless items are sanitized between uses. Day camps will follow the Washington State Department of Health Guidelines, Governor’s Guidelines for Sporting Activities and CDC Guidance for Youth Sports for any sport activity.

Cleaning and Hygiene

Cleaning and disinfecting routines will be scheduled and maintained by staff allowing for multiple cleanings of all high touch points. Surfaces and objects will be cleaned between rotations of groups. Items that cannot be sanitized will not be used. Hand wash stations and hand sanitizer will be provided but campers are encouraged to bring their own hand sanitizer.

Refunds

If a child becomes ill during camp or cannot pass health screening at check in, the City of Bellevue will provide a refund for the missed days of camp.

Snack, Meal, and Water Breaks

Camper should bring their own snack, lunch, and water bottle. Each item should be clearly labeled with the camper’s name. Physical distancing will be maintained during meal and snack times. Children will not share food, utensils, water bottles, or any other items. Snack, water breaks, and mealtimes are the only time children can remove their masks at camp.

Sunscreen

Parents should apply sunscreen to their child before child arrives to camp. Staff will be unable to supply or apply sunscreen. If your child needs special assistance or accommodation, please contact the facility where your child will be attending.

Camper Expectations

Campers will be expected to follow all program specific safety rules set up by staff. Guidelines and expectations will be reviewed with campers at the beginning of each week. Staff will model these guidelines and use positive, age-appropriate techniques to help campers be successful in implementing them throughout the camp session.

  • All campers will be required to wear a face covering during camp. Please review the current Department of Health face covering guidance summarizing the current mandates and health orders and inform staff prior to camp if your child meets one of the listed exemptions to the face covering requirement.
  • Campers must maintain 6 feet of physical distance from others.
  • Campers must remain in their assigned groups for the length of the camp.
  • Campers must use the supplies provided for their use for the entirety of the camp or program and not use another participant’s supplies.

If a participant is not following these expectations, staff will contact the parent or guardian for discussion, and may arrange for pick-up from the camp for that day if needed. Camp staff will work with the parent or guardian regarding any additional steps needed to ensure the safety of the child, other camp participants, and staff.

If accommodations are needed, please contact HCC@bellevuewa.gov or call 425-452-7686 at least 5 business days prior to the camp start date for assistance.

What if a child becomes sick with COVID-19 symptoms at camp?

Staff will implement the following procedures for children who begin exhibiting symptoms consistent with COVID-19:

  • The child will be isolated from the other campers and staff will take their temperature and record symptoms. Parent or guardian will be called to arrange for immediate pickup.
  • If there is a positive COVID-19 case confirmed at camp and your child had close contact with this camp group/cohort, parents or guardians of children in that camp group/cohort will be informed by the City. King County Health Department will be notified of any confirmed COVID-19 cases.
  • The spaces used by that camp group/cohort will be evacuated and disinfected before being used again
  • Staff will contact families of campers regarding who may return and when it is safe to do so.
  • Returning to camp: Staff will follow guidelines from Washington State Department of Health to determine when it is safe for campers to return to camp.

Please let us know if you have any questions by contacting your camp director or call Parks Administration at (425) 452-6885 for more information. We look forward to serving you and providing a wonderful safe, fun, and memorable summer experience for your child!
