PARENT/CAREGIVER COVID-19 RESPONSIBILITY

Please review the safety procedures with your children before the start of their camp session. We require you to monitor your child’s health and ask you to notify Kirsten Sanford, Education Manager by phone at 609-716-1931 immediately if your child shows any indication of illness. For the health and safety of all, parents are requested to keep the child at home if they show any signs of illness. A child displaying symptoms of illness during the day will be separated from other campers and the parent/caregiver must pick up the child as soon as possible for the safety of others. In the event a parent/caregiver in the family has been exposed to a person with a probable or confirmed case of COVID-19 infection or has tested positive with COVID-19 antibodies, this parent/caregiver has the responsibility to a) not send the child to camp, and b) notify WWAC of the situation so appropriate measures can be taken for the safety of others.
