Club SciKidz MD Elements for a Safe & Healthy Summer 2022

Updated 6/3/2022

During Summer 2020 & 2021, Club SciKidz MD successfully ran COVID-free camps using our thorough policies and procedures. We will continue to revise and update our policies as needed throughout the summer, based on local and state guidelines, to once again have a healthy & safe camp.

Stay Home When Sick

  • When you have a symptom of an infectious disease, stay home. Use our Health & Wellness Policy for guidance on when to stay home and when you can return to camp.
  • If an individual has tested positive for COVID-19, they may not come to camp for at least 5 days. (Day 1 is the first full day after symptoms started or test was performed). They may return after 5 days if they are fever free for 24 hours without the use of medication and other symptoms are improving.

Face Coverings

Club SciKidz will continue to follow State and local guidelines in regards to mask wearing and may be required to change our policy at any time during the summer.

Mask wearing is currently optional for campers and staff both indoors and outdoors except for a few exceptions as listed below:

  • If there is a potential exposure within a camp, that group will be asked to wear a mask for 10 days from the exposure (except when outside or eating).
  • If there is an individual in your household who has tested positive for COVID-19, wearing a mask indoors is required for 10 days.
  • If there is known close-contact exposure to a positive individual, wearing a mask indoors is suggested for 10 days.
  • Individuals who tested positive for COVID-19 and are returning after their 5 days of isolation are asked to wear a mask for an additional five days.

Some local counties have recently moved from a medium to a high level of COVID-19 community transmission, and with this elevation, the CDC recommends mask-wearing when indoors. Although we will not currently require masks, we encourage families to talk with your child(ren) about wearing a mask indoors in an effort to keep campers and staff healthy.

COVID-19 Communications

We are committed to keeping the Club SciKidz community informed of any health concerns at camp and ask for your cooperation in achieving this goal.

  • It is imperative to contact Club SciKidz owners (sciencecamps@clubscikidzmd.com) immediately if you or someone in your household has tested positive for COVID-19.
  • Should a camper or staff member test positive for COVID-19, we will follow the directions of the local health department and email those members of the Club SciKidz community who may have potentially been exposed in as timely a manner as possible.

Cleaning, Disinfecting & Handwashing

  • Staff and facility custodial staff will clean and disinfect classrooms and common areas daily.
  • Staff and campers will be required to wash their hands and use sanitizer frequently, specifically before & after meals, before & after using shared materials, and between activities.
