We Are Preparing Our Space to be Safe and Smart
Following CDC and Local Health Department Guidelines
Updated May 10th, 2022
2021 Summer Camp went very well and we want you to know that we will remain vigilant in our processes and procedures to mitigate the spread of Coronavirus.
- Continue to follow CDC guidelines.
- Have everyone wash hands several times daily and provide hand sanitizer to use when they cannot get to the sinks in a timely manner.
- Require staff to wear masks at any time they are going to be close to others.
- Request that unvaccinated students wear a mask when they are inside and close to others.
Kids in our camps are able to interact with each other, a HUGE gap that has been missing for more than 2 years.
Things we are doing to avoid the possible spread of germs
Our masked staff will meet you all in the drop off lane at Grandview Prep School.
Parents and non-attending siblings will not be allowed inside our space.
Our staff will escort children into the main building.
We are maintaining our plan to have at least 3 feet os space between people - 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 and when close to others - except when eating or drinking. Campers who are at least 3 feet from others will not be required to wear face coverings.
Our campers and staff will meet parents' cars in drop off line at Grandview Prep.

Questions you may be asking
Below are some Frequently Asked Questions
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.
Directly copied and pasted from the CDC Website:
- The effectiveness of alternative surface disinfection methodsexternal icon, such as ultrasonic waves, high intensity UV radiation, and LED blue light, against the virus that causes COVID-19 has not been fully established.
- In most cases, fogging, fumigation, and wide-area or electrostatic spraying are not recommended as primary methods of surface disinfection and have several safety risks to consider, unless specified as a method of application on the product label.
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.
