Does my child have to wear a face mask? Yes, you must provide a face mask for your child to wear at summer camp. Face masks will be worn while indoors and outdoors when 6 feet or less of physical distancing is not possible. See our full Face Covering guidelines here.

How many children are in the program? Day camps may operate at maximum of 50% of facility capacity with group sizes of 100 participants or fewer (1:10 ratio of staff to campers; limited to 20 children per camp pod). Capacity restrictions will be reassessed based on the latest science and public health metrics on an ongoing basis throughout the Bridge Phase.
