St. Albans Summer Programs will have either a school nurse, athletic trainers or outside medical professional available during all weeks of programming, to assist participants and staff.
St. Albans Summer Programs will not be requiring specific vaccinations in order to participate, however, we strongly encourage that all participants be immunized in accordance with DC Health's recommendations
- Parents should monitor their children for illness, or signs of illness before heading to camp. If they show signs of illness, including vomiting, diarrhea, rash, chills, a temperature above 100.2 degrees F, dry cough, chills, shortness of breath, sore throat or new muscle aches/pains, they will be sent home. Campers should test negative for COVID-19, if they experience these symptoms, before returning to camp.
- Please notify the camp directly if your camper develops a communicable disease, including COVID-19, and has attended camp in the previous 48 hours. Campers who develop COVID-19 are asked to follow CDC guidelines. This includes isolating at home for 5 days post first symptoms, and returning to camp on day 6 if fever free for 24 hours without the use of medications, having resolving symptoms, and wearing a mask when indoors on days 6-10.
Unless otherwise necessary, we solely need the medical form, avaible through online registration portal, to be fully completed and submitted prior to your participant's first day of programming. *If you feel additional reference information is needed, you may email it to email@example.com
Epipens or other medical items
- The use of sunscreen, especially for sports campers, is highly encouraged. However, the application of sunscreen by staff must be permitted by parents via an addition to the participation waiver. If you refuse to grant permission for assistance, it means that your camper is capable of applying their own sunscreen and that you will ensure they have a sufficent supply.
- Scenarios in which staff assistance could be needed:
- Young camper using a spray or cream
- Camper's supply runs low/out or does not have
If your participant is old enough to keep hold of their medical items (and possibly self-administer), they are welcome to do so. If you prefer we keep hold of them til the conclusion of the week or program, please ensure the items are clearly labeled, with instructions if necessary, and have your participant give them to either the medical representative or staff member.Food & Snack
We do not restrict the types of foods participants bring for lunch or appropriate snack time, including peanut products, however, we do ask that they be mindful not to share and to clean up themselves and their eating areas before engaging with others or shared items; as some may have sensitivites to certain food items.
