ALL Camp Chaverim campers and staff are required to be current on their immunizations per the CDC guidelines in order to attend Camp Chaverim
CANCELLATIONS & REFUNDS
We have worked with health officials to confirm best practices regarding COVID-19 transmission concerns. All of our camp activities will be held on the property of Temple B'nai Israel. There will be no field trips or activities at any other location this summer. Camper groups/pods will remain the same each day; camper groups/pods will not mix during the day. Please read through the Parents' Manual to learn more about our policies for this summer. Please note that Camp Chaverim could be paused or cancelled at any time if deemed necessary by leadership of the Jewish Federation of Greater Oklahoma City.
The health and safety of our campers and staff members is our top priority. Below you will find some of the actions/policies that will be in place this summer to ensure a safe return to in-person camp. Daily health checks/screenings will occur for each staff member and camper upon arrival. A designated staff member will check each staff member’s temperature and check for other signs of illness before they enter the Temple building. Staff members will greet campers at their cars to check their temperature and check for other signs of illness before helping them apply hand sanitizer and walking them to their room. Parents/Guardians may not leave the property until their camper(s) have had their temperature checked and are approved to be at camp. If any of the below circumstances applies to a camper or staff member, they must stay home from camp:
If they have been ill within the last 24 hours (fever of 100.4 or more, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or excessive congestion/nose running), they may not attend camp that day and must follow guidelines as indicated in these protocols. If there are other campers or staff members in the household, they may not attend camp that day.
If they have a fever but no other symptoms, they must be symptom-free for 72 hours without fever-reducing aid before returning to camp. If there are other campers or staff members in the household, they may return to camp the following day from not being admitted, as long as they are not running a fever.
If they are showing other COVID-19 symptoms (chills, cough, nasal congestion or runny nose, loss of taste or smell, sore throat, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, diarrhea, nausea or vomiting, stomachache, tiredness, headache, muscle or body aches and/or poor appetite) along with a fever, a negative COVID-19 test result will need to be confirmed before returning to camp.
If they or anyone in their household has tested positive or been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 14 days, they will need to quarantine for 10 days and will not be allowed to return to camp until a negative COVID-19 test result is confirmed.
Additional COVID-19 Protocols:
If a camper or staff member is diagnosed with COVID-19, parents/guardians in their group/pod will be notified and will need to quarantine for 10 days before being allowed to return to camp. The camper(s) or staff member(s) diagnosed with COVID-19 will not be allowed to return to camp until a negative COVID-19 test result is confirmed.
Campers and staff members will stay in the same group/pod each day and will only be allowed in certain areas of the Temple building.
Masks must be worn 100% of the time while indoors. This includes activities in the indoor gym. There will be no exceptions to this rule.
Masks will not be worn while in the pool.
Masks do not have to be worn for outdoor activities; it will be camper’s/staff member’s choice whether or not to wear a mask during outdoor activities. However, a mask must be put on before entering the building following any outdoor activities.
Hand sanitizer will be used regularly between activities.
Door handles, light switches and other common surfaces will be disinfected multiple times throughout the day and at the end of each day.
Air purifiers will be used in each indoor classroom.
No outside visitors will be allowed to enter camp, unless there is an emergency; this includes parents/guardians, family and friends.
