We Are Preparing Our Space to be Safe and Smart

Following the State of Florida and CDC Guidelines

Updated June 12, 2020

After two weeks of in-person camps with incredible success we are proud to say that we believe we are on the right track.

Kids in our camps are able to interact with each other - a HUGE gap that has been missing for months - while maintaining common sense mitigation precautions that don't feel scary or intrusive.

FYI: We will ALWAYS follow the recommendations of the health officials - scientists - when it comes to the safety of our staff and your children.

Above is a picture of how we have set up for our upcoming camps. As you can see, students will have plenty of space to build, program and work without infringing on each other's space. As kids move around our space we ask that they wear a face covering.  While kids are in their own space - at least 6 to 10 feet apart from others - we allow them to lower or take off their covering. As soon as they begin to move around, and interact with each other or our staff we request the face covering to protect us all. We feel this is reasonable and minimally invasive.

We are also offering a variety of live online courses. Full schedule here.

Things we are doing to avoid the possible spread of germs

Our masked staff will meet parents' cars in front of our space.

Parents and non-attending siblings will not be allowed inside our space.

Our staff will be equipped with touchless thermometers and all campers will undergo a temperature check before parents pull away.

We are maintaining our plan to have no more than 10 people in a room - inclusive of instructors.

Even though the CDC revealed this week that COVID19 is not easily passed through objects such as countertops or door handles, we will routinely clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that are frequently touched.

Campers will be assigned their own computer, mouse, etc.

Campers and staff will wash hands several times a day.

Camper and staff will wear face coverings when inside the camp facility - except when eating or drinking.

Our masked staff will meet parents' cars in front of our space.

We will use walkie talkies to radio inside for each student as his ride arrives.

Campers will gather gear and  join their parents in the car.

Parents and non-attending siblings will not be allowed inside our space.

Questions you may be asking

Below are some Frequently Asked Questions

FAQs

According to the CDC: Surfaces frequently touched by multiple people, such as door handles, bathroom surfaces, and handrails, should be cleaned with soap and water or another detergent at least daily when facilities are in use.

From the CDC: The efficacy of these disinfection methods against the virus that causes COVID-19 is not known. EPA only recommends use of the surface disinfectants identified on List Nexternal icon against the virus that causes COVID-19. EPA does not routinely review the safety or efficacy of pesticidal devices, such as UV lights, LED lights, or ultrasonic devices. Therefore, EPA cannot confirm whether, or under what circumstances, such products might be effective against the spread of COVID-19.

DigiCamp spoke with Dr. Emily Marshall, Assistant Professor at University of Chicago Medicine, who told us that the wavelength of UV light is not effective on bacteria and viruses.

Further, we know that UV light has been proven to be carcinogenic. For these reasons, DigiCamp will not employ any type of UV light technology.
