We Are Preparing Our Space to be Safe and Smart

Following the State of Florida and CDC Guidelines

Updated October 30, 2020

As we plan for our exciting Winter Break Camp, we want you to know that we will remain vigilant in our processes and procedures to mitigate the spread of Coronovirus.

  • We will:
    Take temperatures each day as campers arrive.
  • Have campers wash hands several times daily and provide hand sanitizer for everyone to use when we cannot get to the sinks in a timely manner.
  • Require staff to wear masks at all times.
  • Provide at least 6 feet of space between campers so that masks won't always be required of campers (seated and working on your own computer will mean that campers can remove their masks during that time.)
  • Require campers to wear masks as they move around, including arrival and departure.

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.

Things we are doing to avoid the possible spread of germs

Our masked staff will meet parents' cars in front of Grandview Prep.

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.

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.

Campers and staff will wear face coverings when inside the camp facility - except when eating or drinking. Campers who are seated and at least 6 feet from others will be allowed to remove the face covering until they need to get up and move or until someone is coming into their close proximity.

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.
