COVID-19 Information

As we prepare for an unprecedented summer, we are committed to creating a safe and healthy camp environment for all staff, campers, and our entire Summer at Park community. We are working with federal, state, and local agencies, as well as the Park School, to form the best practices regarding COVID-19. As the summer gets closer and we gain a clearer understanding of what is (or isn’t) possible at camp, we continue to learn about our ever changing environment, and state and local regulations are updated, we will adjust our plan accordingly.

We can not do this alone. We will need the cooperation of every Summer at Park family to make this summer the best summer yet!

What we are doing:
  • Daily Health Management

    • All community members will be required to complete a health attestation before morning arrival​

    • Additional camp medical personnel on-site

    • Expanded offices for camp medical staff

    • Isolation and contact tracing protocols in place for individuals who become ill

  • Individual Precautions

    • No visitors, including parents, allowed on camp/school grounds​

      • Except during morning and afternoon carpool to assist campers getting in and out of vehicles​

    • Masks will be required for all community members​

    • Frequent handwashing for all community members

  • Facility Improvements

    • Increased cleaning throughout the camp/school grounds

    • Upgraded air filters and increased frequency for new filters

    • Touchless water bottle filling stations 

    • Touchless hand sanitizer stations

    • New signage to direct flow of movement

    • Additional tents to support outdoor activity

  • Programming Adjustments

    • Smaller overall capacity

      • Limits potential camp closures

      • Enhances our contact tracing ability in the event of a COVID-19 exposure

    • Swim Lessons

      • To comply with DPH Camp Guidelines, we are uncertain if we will be able to offer swim lessons. We are working with DPH with the hope to make this very important portion of the camp day a reality​

      • Campers will still have a swim block each day, even if we are not able to conduct lessons

    • AM & PM Extended Day

      • At this time we are unable to offer our traditional Extended Day options. We will revisit this in the spring, with the hope that guidelines have changed​

    • Transportation

      • At this time we are unable to offer our traditional Shuttle Bus service​. We will revisit this in the spring, with the hope that guidelines have changed​

  • Refunds

    • In the event that camp can not run due to a governmental mandate, we will refund all tuition.

What you can do:
  • Follow Federal, State, and Local Orders

    • All families are expected to adhere to the directives of applicable federal, state, and local government health departments regarding social distancing in public and other measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19. That includes wearing a mask and maintaining at least six feet of space when in a public space.​

  • Testing and Notification

    • If your camper or someone in your household tests positive for COVID-19, Summer at Park requires all information regarding COVID-19 to be communicated to the camp nurse as soon as possible. ​

  • Stay Home if You're Sick

    • If your camper is sick or you suspect they may have COVID-19, you are expected to keep them home from camp. Contact your primary care physician and the camp to assist with contact tracing. ​

  • Stay Home if You've Been Exposed

    • If anyone in your household has been notified by the state or local health departments that they were in contact with an individual who tested positive for COVID-19, stay home and inform the camp medical staff. You may be asked to keep your camper home from camp for 14 days or provide a negative test result.​

  • Travel Expectations for Families

    • Please avoid unnecessary travel. If anyone in your camper’s household has traveled to a state or country currently under travel advisory, you must keep your camper at home for 14 days or provide a negative test result​ that has been administered up to 72-hours prior to their arrival to Massachusetts.
