• Groups will be limited to 20 people unless a full wall can physically separate each group.

• When a summer camp is held at a larger facility (ski resorts, schools, recreation complex with indoor and outdoor space), groups of 20 people may be separated using indoor and outdoor locations. Some schools and resorts have very large footprints within which to work.

• Limit mixing of groups of children (eg, keep groups in separate rooms, allow playground at different times).

• Take the temperature of all children upon arrival at the facility.

• Children will learn how to wash their hands properly and should wash or sanitize their hands regularly or whenever an activity changes.

• Alternate activities can be considered to maintain group spacing (one group doing one activity and the other group doing a different activity, then they switch and all surfaces are cleaned between groups).

• During lunch or during snacks, social distancing will be encouraged (eating lunch outside on the grass might be more conducive).

• If lunch or snacks are provided by camp, all recommended food service standards outlined in the Food Service Protocols will be followed.

• Parent-designated pick-up and drop-off areas will be in place.
