Please read through all COVID-19 related precautions we are taking to reduce the risk to our families as much as possible. With the ever changing environment we are currently living in, and the unknowns of COVID-19, all policies, procedures and schedules are subject to change. Please note that we are following orders from the SFDPH for running summer camps: https://www.sfcdcp.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/Child-care-and-summer-camps-FINAL-2020-05-22.pdf



  • Staff will take temperature and fill out the health questionnaire daily before working with the children. Staff will not work at the camp if showing any symptom of illness.

  • Staff will wear masks when with the children.

  • Staff will sanitize their hands regularly when interacting with children.



  • Children are not required to wear masks as long as camp remains outdoors.

  • If camp moves indoors (Director's discretion), children will be required to wear masks while indoors.

  • Parents must wear masks during pick up/drop off.

  • Staff will wear masks when with the children.



  • Lunch and snack should be packaged in a lunchbox with your child’s name clearly written on it. During snack and lunch time, your child will retrieve their own lunchbox and serve themselves. Please label which items you prefer for snack and lunch if you are particular about it. 

  • During lunch and snack time, children will sit at their own table (each family on their own table). Tables will be 6 feet apart.

  • We eat snack at 10:00 AM, and lunch at 12:15 PM



  • Bathrooms will be sanitized by the teachers after each use.

  • Tables and chairs will be sanitized before meals, snacks, and tabletop activities

  • Equipment, balls, toys etc… will be sanitized every afternoon at the conclusion of the day.


  • Children are encouraged to wash with soap and water for 20 seconds (while singing Happy Birthday)

  • We will be encouraging hand cleaning more frequently, especially after blowing noses, before and after eating, and coming in from outside.


LOCATION, 1300 Shrader Street

  • Our camp will be outdoors 75% of the day: on the sidewalk outside of 1300 Shrader Street.

  • At Director's discretion, camp MAY be relocated to indoors.

  • We walk to the Grattan Tennis courts daily. Please note that the Grattan tennis courts are open to the public, and there are others who are using the space when we are there.

  • Children will come inside the building to use the bathroom as needed

  • Children will come inside the building to wash their hands with soap and water as needed.

  • Children will come inside the building in inclement weather.



  • Please apply sunblock on your child before drop off. We also apply sunblock at 10:30 AM before heading out to the tennis courts. Due to COVID-19, we ask that you send sunblock in easy to apply stick form. Our teachers will not be rubbing sunblock lotion.

  • Being that our camp is outdoors, and San Francisco summer is unpredictable, please dress your child in layers so that they can be comfortable at all times.



  • Please note that there is no practical way to achieve full social distancing with young children - not between the students and not between the students and their teachers. Teachers will comfort and play with your child/ren as appropriate. We feel this is an imperative part of emotionally healthy care for young children. This is something that you NEED TO FEEL COMFORTABLE with.

  • Teachers will be wearing masks and using hand sanitizer regularly when interacting with the children.

  • During learning circle and during meals children will sit 6 feet from each other.

  • We will have an increase of table top activities which children will be able to do at their own labeled tables. Materials like art supplies, playdough, slime etc…. will be divided between children and not shared (as much as possible).

  • Please note that we will not prevent children from playing with each other. This is part of healthy child behavior that is essential for their development.



  • Please do not bring any toys or stuffed animals from home. The only items allowed from home will be a scooter/bike, helmet, lunchbox and water bottle which will be kept in your child’s bin and handled only by your child.


  1. There will be drop off pods marked off on the sidewalk. When coming in the morning please enter a ‘’pod’’ and wait for a teacher. Teacher will ask you some healthcare screening questions, and take the temperature of your child. Teachers will not take temperature or allow your child into the classroom BEFORE 9:00 AM. Please be patient as you wait your turn to be allowed in.


  1. After the health screening, your child will put their lunchbox and water bottle in their special bin (each child/family will have their own to avoid cross contamination).


  1. Children will then use hand sanitizer and be allowed to enter our ‘’classroom’’.

  2. Parents are not allowed into our indoor or outdoor classroom, but can stay outside for as long as they’d like to observe their children.

  3. Adults doing drop off must be wearing MASKS and KEEP them ON while chatting with teachers and other parents.

  4. Adults must bring their own pen for sign in. Ideally the same family member should drop off and pick up every day.



  1. Enter a pod and wait for your child.

  2. A teacher will help your child get their helmet, bike, water bottle and lunch box and bring your child to your pod.

  3. When walking home, please try to stay 6 feet from other families.

  4. Bring your own pen for sign out.



  • There will be a daily health screen before allowing your child/ren into camp.

  • You will be asked if your child/ren has a fever, shortness of breath or cough.

  • The teacher will observe if your child/ren has flushed cheeks, rapid breathing or difficulty breathing, fatigue, or extreme fussiness.

  • The teacher will then use a “non-touch” (infrared) thermometer to take your child’s temperature.

  • In the case that your child/ren has a fever, or they display one of the symptoms listed above, your child/ren will not be able to join camp that day, and must be symptom free for 72 hours before returning to camp. Siblings will not be allowed back into camp during those 72 hours.


  • Keep your child home if they have a temperature of 100.4 or above, or any other symptoms of sickness (listed above).

  • Children must be symptom free for 72 hours before returning to camp.

  • If you or another member of your household has a temperature or is sick, we ask that you keep your child home.


What will happen if a child, family member of a child, or household member of a child, or staff is exposed to or has COVID-19 confirmed by a positive COVID-19 test? 

  1. Our camp will close for 2-5 days. This short-term closure allows time to safely clean and disinfect, and for the local health officials to determine appropriate next steps. 

  2. We will contact the SFDPH Schools and Childcare Hub for consultation and guidance at (415)-554-2830.

  3. We will communicate with the staff, parents, and students. We will maintain the confidentiality of the child, youth, or staff member with COVID-19 as required by the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act, and possibly HIPAA

  4. We will Clean and disinfect thoroughly. 

  5. We will work with SFDPH to determine when our camp can re-open.


Refunds of 50% of the remaining days of Camp will be issued in the case that Camp needs to close because of COVID-19 related issues.
