1. What is Stony Acres doing to ensure my child’s health and safety?

Stony Acres will address camper’s health and safety through hygiene and social distancing measures. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Symptom and temperature checks upon arrival each day
  • Campers and staff will be required to wash their hands upon arrival to camp, before and after eating and periodically throughout the day.
  • When possible, provide one set of participant equipment per camper which will be cleaned at periodically.
  • Cleaning communal equipment after each use and at the conclusion of each day
  • Social distancing will be observed during seated activities, when moving between activity spaces, and during all activities when possible.
  • Hand sanitizing stations will be readily available
2. What can I do as parent/guardian to ensure my campers health and safety?

Each morning, we would like you to ask your camper if they have any symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, body aches, headache, congestion, nausea, diarrhea, loss of taste, loss of smell, etc). If you have the ability to do so, we also ask that you check their temperature. If your camper has a fever (100.4o or greater), we must insist that they stay home from camp that day.

3. Will masks be required?
  • Masks will be required to be worn by all staff whenever possible. When not masked (example eating lunch, canoeing, etc) proper social distancing must be maintained.
  • Masks will not be required but encouraged (and recommended by the CDC) to be worn by campers when they are not engaged in physically demanding activities. Each camper’s parent/guardian will make the decision prior to the beginning of camp as to whether their child will wear a face covering throughout the day and notify camp staff of their wishes during camper drop off.
  • Masks will not be required when participating in physically demanding activities including climbing, canoeing or highly aerobic activities. However mask will be required when entering any building (bath house, lodge if necessary) and at times when physical distancing may be challenged.
4. Group size

Campers will be assigned to a group at the beginning of camp (10 campers to 1 staff). That group will remain constant throughout the day and/or camp and there will be a consistent camp staff member (s) with the group. Intermingling of groups will be limited whenever possible.

5. What should my camper bring each day in addition to what is asked of them specific to the camp activities for the day?

In addition to what is required for the days activities we must ask that campers also bring  the following:

  • Personal bottle of hand sanitizer there will be refilling stations on the property.
  • 2 masks (at least one must be cloth)
  • Refillable water bottle
  • Bagged lunch and snacks
  • Beach towel
  • Rain gear
  • Where feasible campers should bring their own equipment like fishing pole, tackle box, art supplies, etc.
