Summer Camp 2020 Trifold June 2020

 

Important June/July 2020 Updates

Notice to Registered Families July 1st

The EAC Y is operating in accordance with the Centers of Disease Control’s Guidance for Child Care Programs that Remain Open, recommendations from the City of Austin and Austin Public Health (APH), and the Minimum Standards Health Protocols Check List for Child Care Centers released by Governor Abbott on May 18, 2020. Following these supplemental recommendations to the greatest extent possible will further minimize the risk of coronavirus transmission and help keep staff, children, and families safe.

It is strongly recommended by all entities that the children over the age of 2 wear face coverings; therefore, EAC Y programs will require all summer camp participants to wear masks while participating in indoor activities, as well as outdoor activities when social distancing is not possible. Staff work with all children to maintain comfort while enjoying daily activities, meeting new friends, and making fun memories.

Summer camp will be days filled with field sports, team games, and playground time. The summer camp programs will increase outdoor activities this year by using outdoor spaces such as blacktops, playgrounds, fields, and sidewalks to rotate activities. There will still be plenty of time for indoor activities which will include creative arts, dramatic play, social emotional learning, yoga, mindfulness, virtual field trips, reading time, STEM projects, and building blocks. Staff will always use their best judgement to determine if children should remove face coverings in situations where face coverings inhibit children from breathing freely while engaging in physical activities.
