Working together to safely

have fun together.

 

The health and safety of our campers, staff, and patrons are our top priority. Orlando REP is excited to once again offer in-person camps but we must work together to keep our campers and staff safe.

Our comprehensive Keeping Camps Safe – Health & Safety Plan is based on guidance from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the State of Florida’s “Safe. Smart. Step-by-Step” plan, and recommendations from local government.

 

Orlando REP’s Keeping Camps Safe – Health & Safety Plan may be reviewed below. We cannot wait to have you join us for a wonderful camp experience BUT we must work together to safely have fun together. To do that responsibly, all staff, camp participants, and families must follow all health & safety guidelines.

We are here to help you prepare for your camp! We invite you to connect with us with questions by email at [email protected] or phone by calling (407) 896-7365 (Select option 1 when prompted).

Before You Arrive

  • Consult Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) resources to determine if your camp participant or anyone they have come in contact with is showing symptoms of an acute respiratory illness consistent with COVID-19. These symptoms include a fever (100.4° F or greater), coughing, and shortness of breath. If these symptoms are present DO NOT report to camp, refer to CDC guidelines for COVID-19 testing, and contact Orlando REP for assistance with next steps for your camp experience.
  • Set your camp participant up for a safe camp experience by preparing their face covering and reviewing with your camp participant camp guidelines including social distancing, cough and sneeze etiquette, and proper hand washing techniques.
  • Confirm your camp drop-off time slot and location (Welcome Point). This information can be found in your Preparing for a Safe Camp Experience email.

Arrival

  • At your scheduled drop-off time, report to your assigned drop-off location (Welcome Point). Non-camp participants must remain in the vehicle. To expedite drop-off and for the safety of your child, we recommend seating your camp participant on the passenger side of the vehicle.
  • Make sure your face mask is on and remain in your vehicle. A designated staff member (wearing a facemask and gloves) greets you to facilitate the check-in process outlined below.
    • Each Day – Staff Member conducts a temperature check on camp participant using a contact-less infrared thermometer. Campers with a temperature of 100.4° F or greater will not be admitted.
    • Each Day – Staff Member facilitates a health assessment for camp participant.
      • Day 1 Only – Parents are walked through Health Assessment Questionnaire for the camp participant. Parent should remain in vehicle. Camp participants with fever, coughing, or shortness of breath symptoms will not be admitted.
      • All Subsequent Camp Days – Staff Member asks if there have been any changes to the camp participants health status as it relates to COVID-19.
    • Once camp participants have successfully been granted entry, parents should clear the area to expedite other check-ins.
    • Camp participants remain socially distanced (six feet apart) outside the building until check-in is complete for their camp. Campers are then escorted into their camp space to begin the day.

Camp Day

  • To comply with public health official recommendations, camps have been reduced to 50% capacity with only 12 students in each standard camp and 16 in Performance Workshop camps. A maximum of 5 camps are hosted in the building concurrently, with most weeks having only 4 concurrent camps. Each camp has its own contained camp space, pick-up/drop-off location, restrooms, and other building amenities.
  • Face masks must be worn at all times by staff and campers. Opportunities for face mask breaks are worked into each camp schedule. Face masks breaks are held outside the building with increased social distancing (beyond six feet). Frequency of face mask breaks depend upon class schedule, outdoor space availability, and weather conditions.
  • To minimize cross-camp contact, each camp has been assigned a contained camp space with its own restrooms.
  • Campers are socially distanced (six feet apart) in the camp space. Camp activities have been modified to comply with social distancing guidelines.
  • Campers are not permitted to touch items belonging to other campers.
  • A staggered lunch is hosted outdoors with increased social distancing (beyond six feet). Each camp is assigned a lunch time and contained lunch location. In the event of inclement weather, lunches are held in each contained camp space.

Pick-Up

  • Camper pick-up is conducted outside the building at the same location as your drop-off (Welcome Point). Parents and approved pick-up individuals must remain in their vehicles.
  • Campers remain socially distanced inside the building.
  • To expedite pick-up, parents are provided two vehicle placards with their camper’s last name to be placed on the dashboard for pick-up. This allows our staff to prepare your camper for pick-up when your vehicle approaches the Welcome Point.
  • Parents and approved pick-up individuals must have the provided vehicle placards displayed on the dashboard when picking up. Approved pick-up individuals without a vehicle placard displayed are required to present a photo ID to pick-up their camper.
  • A staff member escorts your camper to the vehicle for curbside pick-up.
  • Once your camper’s pick-up is complete, please clear the area to expedite other pick-ups.

Additional Safety Measures

  • We ask parents and campers to take extra care to ensure that their camp participant has all materials needed for the day at the time of drop-off. Parents needing to drop-off/pick-up campers outside of the normal drop-off/pick-up windows may report to the Camp Concierge Desk at the Bocox Family Box Office located in the main lobby. Individuals coming to the building for these approved reasons must wear a face mask while in the building and are permitted past the lobby.
  • Orlando REP uses CDC and EPA recommended disinfectant and cleaning products to clean high touch surfaces frequently throughout the day. Additionally, our contracted custodial service partner provides thorough nightly and weekly disinfecting services.
  • Additional hand sanitizer stations and disinfectant wipes are available to staff and campers to maintain a sanitized environment throughout the day.
  • Water fountains will not be available for use. However, campers are permitted to bring their own bottle(s) of water and Orlando REP will supply water throughout the camp day.
  • Orlando REP non-camp staff are working remotely to further reduce the number of people interacting with the building during camps.

 

All camp participants and their families must comply with Orlando REP’s health and safety protocols. Individuals that do not follow health and safety protocols will not be permitted to attend camp. Orlando REP continues to monitor updates related to COVID-19 and will inform you of any changes to the Keeping Camps Safe – Health & Safety Plan in-person at Check-In/Check-Out and by email. If at anytime in-person camps are no longer deemed safe, Orlando REP reserves the right to discontinue in-person camp offerings.
