FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

- The CSC will run the Spring Adventure Sailing Camp from May 10 – June 11. We expect to remain open for summer camps programs which start on June 21st. These programs, procedures and policies have been altered to accommodate the new restrictions as set by the State of Vermont.
- Are the hours of operation changing?
- The CSC is only open for kids camps at this time, with no rental or adult programs currently being offered. Spring Adventure Sailing Camp will operate with windows of pick up and drop off between 8-9am and 4-5pm respectively. Our Summer Camps will continue to operate between 9am-4pm with early drop off and late pick up options available. As the season approaches, this procedure may change and staggered times may be instituted. We will notify all participants providing ample time for any changes to our daily processes.
- What safety measures are you using to prevent the spread of COVID-19?
- The CSC is committed to following the safety protocols as defined by the Department of Children and Families. This includes but is not limited to staggered pick-up and drop-off for families, daily health screenings, and regular cleaning and disinfection of the building and boats. For continued safety of the staff and the children, the facility will otherwise remain closed to the general public until we can safely reopen for other activities.
- What should I do in the event my child gets sick while at camp?
- If a camper becomes ill during the hours of their program, their parent or guardian will be contacted immediately and the camper will be sent home as soon as possible. During the time the sick child remains at the CSC, they will be kept away from other campers to avoid spread of the contagion. If your child is exposed to an individual who has gotten sick outside of camp, please notify the CSC as soon as possible. Those exposed will be asked to adhere to the guidelines set forth by the Vermont Department of Health. If you have any other questions, please refer to the Vermont Department of Health for more resources.
- How is the CSC managing indoor spaces during programs?
- The CSC has identified several indoor spaces including our classroom, deck, program room, and office for safe distance inside. Groups will stay within their assigned space for the duration of their camp. During inclement weather, the campers will participate in activities in these designated areas.
- Will campers be required to wear face coverings?
- As per the recommendations of the Department of Children and Families, we require all children to wear a face covering during all on-land/indoor components of camp programs. To avoid safety hazards, campers will not be permitted to wear face coverings during on-water activities. If they do not have one, a face covering can be provided to them. Suitable options include a clean single use, N95 style mask or reusable cloth face mask. Buffs are not a suitable option.
- What should I do if my camper is traveling from out of state?
- The State of Vermont has suspended its leisure travel map and implemented a mandatory quarantine for anyone returning or traveling to Vermont. Any out-of-state campers are required to self-quarantine for at least 14 days in Vermont or receive negative test results after day 7 before engaging in any program. All families must complete a Certificate of Compliance in order to attend camp. If your camper is unable to comply with this rule, please do not sign up for camp. More information on state travel policies can be found here ACCD.
