This pandemic continues to drive the college’s decisions and there may be additional updates and changes to camp.
Knowing when to stay home
ELC staff, campers, and camper’s family members who are sick and/or have recently been in close contact with a person (family member, friend, neighbor, etc.) with Covid-19, a person who has tested positive with Covid-19, and/or a person who is suspected to have been in contact with others with COVID-19 need to stay home and self-quarantine for 10 days.
Individuals who exhibit any of the symptoms (cough, aches, sore throat, stomachache, etc.) of COVID-19 must stay home and follow the CDC guidelines for when it is safe to return.
A recorded temperature of 100 or higher is deemed unsafe to send to camp. Do not provide your camper with a fever reducing medication prior to coming to camp to pass the daily temperature and health check. This places our program and community at risk.
Adults and children over 2 years old entering campus are required to wear face masks. Those individuals with a mask medical exemption, that have provided documentation to the ELC, will be asked to wear a face shield.
Health and Temperature Check Procedure
Each day before arriving on campus, campers and staff must complete the following health check: bucks.edu/healthcheck When this health check is completed, it will give you that day’s date and either a smiley face or a sad face. If you receive a sad face, then please stay home. If you receive a happy face, then you will need to bring this with you to show at the morning drop-off area, either on your phone or a print out.
During drop off, families will pull vehicles outside the ELC front door and remain in vehicles. If ELC director or lead teacher is not waiting outside, families will call the main ELC phone number to alert staff of arrival.
At this time, we will use a hands-free temperature scanner to check your temperature. A recorded temperature of 100 or higher is deemed unsafe to be at camp and we will ask that individual to stay home.
Regular Camp Requirements
- Children need to be at least three years old by the beginning of June to participate in a summer program. Children must have achieved toilet learning and be able to handle toileting needs independently. Exceptions are made on a case by case basis for documented physical disabilities.
- Families apply sunscreen each morning before school, teachers will re-apply in the afternoon.
- We will have water play (water tables and sprinklers) every morning on the playground, weather permitting.
- Children should come to camp dressed for water play in either a bathing suit, rash guard shirt or clothing that can get wet. Please provide an extra set of clothes each day for after water play.
- Please send a towel each day. You may also want to send in sunglasses and/or a hat.
- If your child stays for lunch, please provide a well-balanced meal that doesn’t need reheating and include a drink. The ELC provides morning snacks.
- We have quiet time daily after lunch. If it makes your child more comfortable, he/she may bring a blanket and a stuffed animal.
- Preschool camp operates Monday through Thursday, 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.
