Health and Safety
COVID-19 Response Updates:
The staff of DC Summer Programs is fully committed to the health and safety of your child both physically and emotionally during their time with us. We employ a registered nurse to be on camp at all times throughout the summer. This person manages all camper health forms and allergy concerns, relaying necessary information to other staff members and monitoring campers closely throughout each day. Our camp nurse is not tied to a specific schedule during the camp day to ensure availability to handle any situation that may arise in a timely manner.
As an important part of training, all staff members are equipped with the knowledge and skills necessary to help campers have a fun and safe summer, including how to care for campers who need special attention for a variety of reasons.
This year at camp we will need to implement a new sunscreen policy due to a new law passed in the state of Pennsylvania regarding the application of sun screen in a school setting. Although you are attending summer camp, since it is run by the school, the requirements of Pennsylvania School Code, Section 1414.10 still apply. This code requires that parents sign a self application waiver in order for their child to carry and apply their own sunscreen at camp. These waivers will be available at the nurses table at registration on Monday morning for you to fill out so please be sure to walk your child in for their first day of camp. We will make these waivers available electronically as soon as possible. Sunscreen can be on any SPF rating, but must be FDA approved (you should not have an issue with common brands) and must be non-aerosol.
