Covid 19 Adjustments  at YMCA Camp Ingersoll

Below is a summary of our more substantial changes this summer due to Covid 19. Please call 860-342-2267 x2 with any questions.

We will not be providing any transportation for daily pick up and drop off

If there is an anticipated Rainy Day for the entire camp day, we will cancel that camp day for our youngest campers (Wee Wonders and Kiddy Campers). All other groups will meet. Parents will be notified by email by 7pm of the night prior.

Campers will have assigned drop off and pick up times (8:30-3:30, 8:45-3:45, 9:00-4:00, 9:15-4:15). Families will be notified which time to drop off before the start of the summer. Screening questions will be asked and temperatures taken every day. After Camp and Before Camp has been canceled, but there may be availability in an extended day which runs from 8:00-5:00.

We are limiting camp to 40 groups every session. Groups are no bigger than 10 campers. Campers will stay in their groups throughout the entirety of the day and be further than 6ft away from any other group at all times.

Campers will only swim once a day. Half of their swimming time will be free swim, while the other half will be instructional activities.

All counselors will carry their own supply of hand sanitizer and cleaning solution. All rooms, tables, equipment, and areas will be cleaned after group use. Extra cleaning and sanitizing procedures have been developed to ensure that camp is as safe as possible for campers, staff, and families. 

All Camp families must sign a waiver prior to the start of the session acknowledging the additional risk that coming to camp entails because of Covid 19.

WHAT WE DO AT CAMP

August 13, 2020 - Canceled

Our camp day consists of eight 45- minute periods shared among swim lessons, specialty areas, lunch, free swim and counselor planned activities. All tribes visit one specialty area a day. Trained facilitators lead each area in fun and engaging activities to promote skill and character development. Swim lessons take place every morning for Traditional Camps and a few Specialty Camps.

After lunch, every tribe participates in free swim. Campers can choose to swim or play in the recreation area. Counselor-led camp games and activities are based on age, interest and availability in the schedule. Feel free to ask your camper's counselor about the weekly schedule when you receive your first day phone call!
