The health and safety of our community is paramount. We are both an overnight camp and we are an activity that involves woodwind instruments. Based on data from overnight camps in 2021 and State requirements and recommendations, we have implemented policies to keep our campers and volunteer staff safe. The information in this FAQ is current as of 4/22/2022. We will update this FAQ as needed to reflect changes in policy and expert guidance.
- We follow all local, state, and federal masking policies. Currently, Connecticut does not require masking for youth camps.
- We will support all individuals who wish to wear masks.
Yes. Based on the recommendations of the CDC and the State of Connecticut, we are requiring full vaccination for all campers, staff, and volunteers for the 2022 season. Due to the at-risk nature of our camp with wind instruments, this will enable us to run camp as safely and 'normally' as possible
Yes. All volunteer staff and invited guests will be fully vaccinated.
At this point, Connecticut does not require pods or cohorts.
- When possible (and weather permitting), meals will be eaten outside.
SARS-CoV-2 is airborne, to mitigate potential of airborne spread:
- Air purifiers will be used in rooms when indoor fife playing is necessary
- If indoor sectionals are necessary due to weather, we will limit rehearsal time indoors to allow for one air exchange.
In addition, we will:
- Provide enhanced cleaning in all public spaces
- Provide sanitization stations throughout camp
- Require hand washing/sanitizing throughout the day
- Allow no sharing of instruments
- If your child develops any COVID-19 symptoms during camp, we will administer a rapid antigen test. If the test is positive, we will isolate your child in an isolation area. You will be notified and required to pick up your child immediately.
- For this reason, we encourage you to test your child at home prior to camp.
