City of Beaumont Summer Camps are Running!

Beaumont Summer Camps – June 18, 2020

*Changes to guidelines may result in changes to safety supervision and program delivery requirements.

COVOID-19 INFORMATION – The safety of our camp participants (campers, coaches, and programmer) is always our first priority. We understand there are many questions and general concerns surrounding how camps will be run to ensure the safety of all involved. Together the City of Beaumont and Sportball are actively following guidelines and information provided by the government and Alberta Health Services. You can find the Alberta Health Services Day Camp Guidelines here.

We will continually assess situations as they arise within the parameters of supervision and safety. If campers are not complying with guidelines, a parent will be called to come pick the child up. If you do not comply or pass the pre-screening checklist your child will not be allowed to stay at camp. 

Our day camps will be held at the Beaumont Community Centre, the main floor of the facility is reserved only for summer camps to lower risk of transmission to campers. Parents of registered campers will receive more information one week prior to camp starting.

We have implemented the following safety protocols to minimize the risk of infection:

Daily Screening

  • Parents will complete a daily pre-screening checklist and the child’s temperature will be recorded daily. 
  • Staff will routinely symptom check themselves and participants throughout the course of each day.

Response Plan

  • Have implemented procedures for a rapid responses if anyone exhibits symptoms as well as an isolation plan.
  • A confirmed or probable case of COVID-19 will be required to close for a minimum of 72 hours to allow contact tracing.

Cohorts

  • Cohorts of 18 in full day camps and 15 in ½ day camp.  
  • Cohort groups will not mix, or be in the same room/space at the same time.
  • Cohort groups will use designated equipment that will not be used by other groups unless full cleaning and sanitation occurs between uses.
  • Each cohort will use their own separate entrance and washrooms.

Social Distancing

  • Physical distancing: 2 metres between attendees as much as possible
  • Equipment sharing will be eliminated whenever possible.
  • Activities will be moved outdoors when possible.

Routine Cleaning and Disinfection

  • Ensuring staff and campers are maintaining high levels of sanitation and personal hygiene.
  • Hand sanitizing stations will be available in each cohort room and must be utilized upon entry by staff, participants, and parents.
  • Consistent hand washing protocols are in place and enforced
