Overnight Camp Procedures In a Post-COVID19 World

Overnight Camp Procedures In a Post-COVID19 World

May 27, 2020

The world has changed drastically due to COVID-19. While many countries are slowly reopening in phases, many things have to be done differently to ensure we do not have multiple waves of infection. We have to adapt to a New Normal.

Before COVID-19, we have always prioritised the safety, hygiene and happiness of our campers. With the current pandemic, we are putting the following measures in place to reduce the spread of Covid-19.

Revised safety briefing procedures 

We have added new content for a mandatory safety briefing at the start of every programme. The briefing will include new hygiene rules such as: 

  • Safe Distancing Expectations (For example, a maximum of 50 participants allow within the academy and 5 campers to one instructor)
  • Sanitising of hands after each activity and meal times 
  • No sharing of water bottles and other belongings 
  • Usage of mask and face shields at all times, excluding meal times. 
  • Staggered meal times to ensure safe distancing is possible at meal venues

It is crucial to keep our High Achievers Adventure Academy clean and hygienic, especially when it is used as sleeping accommodation. To disinfect and sanitise our premises we are prepared to equip our premises with hygiene equipment such as Thermostar Dry Steam System. It can help us effectively clean items like beds, mattresses, sofas and flat surfaces.

Travel and health declaration forms have to be completed before the camp to ensure we have a full history of everyone's whereabouts to activate contact tracing, when necessary. We will also ensure that temperatures are monitored in school before camp starts to ensure the well-being of the students. Students who are found exhibiting flu-like symptoms will not be allowed to participate in the camp. The declaration should also include any symptoms like cough, flu and fever the past 14 days before the camp starts. We will be doing regular checks on temperature and look out for any symptoms before every activity. 

Night Hygiene and Safety 

As far as safe distancing is concerned, there will be alternating of beds during sleeping time, i.e. one empty bed between two occupied beds. Children will also not be allowed to sleep in pairs in one bed as we had done so previously. Teachers and trainers will also have alternated beds available. Even so, the safety of the children must be prioritised. There will be night sentry available to check on the children in case they have to go to the toilet or have other specific needs in the middle of the night. Trainers will be secured at specific exits should there be any emergency evacuation needed. Rest assured that children are in safe hands during this camp, and guidelines will be followed strictly.
