COVID-19 SAFETY

FPST s committed to creating a safe and positive environment for all campers and staff. In advance of our 2022 camp season, we continue to follow CDC guidance and adhere to state, local, and facility requirements to ensure the safety of our campers and staff. As safety guidelines change, our policies and procedures listed below may change accordingly.

The following measures are in place to ensure the safety of campers, staff, and camper families. Our precautions are in place to reduce the likelihood of transmission at camp, but we cannot guarantee zero risk. All participants will be asked to comply throughout the duration of camps—and any staff member, camper or camper family member who does not comply will not be allowed at camp. 

 

  • COVID-19 Waiver: All camp staff and camper parents/guardians must sign the FPST COVID-19 waiver of liability before camp.

  • Self-Symptom Check: It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to screen the camper for symptoms associated with Covid-19 before arrival at camp and will ensure the camper does not attend camp if experiencing any related symptoms. Some camps may also require a verbal symptom screening or a symptom screening form be completed on-site. Please carefully review the CDC's List of COVID-19 Symptoms.

  • Quarantine: It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to determine if the camper has had a recent confirmed case of COVID-19 or exposure to COVID-19 which might require them to quarantine. The CDC offers a Quarantine and Isolation Calculator which can help determine the need to quarantine.

  • Mask Mandates: All camps will adhere to state, local, and facility requirements for face coverings. Staff and campers are required to provide their own masks when face coverings are required.

  • Vaccine Mandates: Some state, local, or facility guidelines may require staff and/or campers to be vaccinated and boosted (and require a copy of the camper's vaccination card) in order to participate in camp. All camps will adhere to these requirements. If cleared by a medical professional, FPST encourages all staff and eligible campers to get vaccinated and boosted before camp as a preventative measure to reduce the spread of COVID-19, even if not required.

  • Pre-Camp Testing: All camps will adhere to state, local, and facility requirements for pre-camp testing requirements. FPST encourages all campers to take an at-home COVID-19 test before attending camp, even if not mandated. 

  • Personal sanitation: Staff and campers should frequently wash their hands with soap and water, or use a hand sanitizer when soap and water are not available. Parents should provide campers with their own hand sanitizer.

FPST will follow COVID-19 safety guidelines as set by the CDC, state, local and facility authorities. While we are taking every possible precaution, we cannot guarantee against exposure during camps. An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present.
