RLS Media Summer Camp 2020

Dear Parents,

As you may already know, at RLS Media Summer Camp, we put the health and safety of our campers first.

Due to the development of COVID-19, our staff wants to assure you that this is still our number one priority and extra precautions will be taken to ensure our campers and staff remain healthy.

Many technology and media camps have moved to online sessions, but our staff has made all proper CDC certified steps to provide a clean and safe summer session for our camp members.

While RLS Metro Media Camp continues to await further guidelines and instructions from the CDC and NJ’s Governor Phil Murphy, we wanted to inform you of some of the precautions initiated.

Smaller Groups:

Our staff will only allow a smaller group of campers and will make camp two weeks per session to reduce the possibility of contamination.

Daily Temperature Checks:

Temperatures of every camper and staff member will be taken before entering the building.

Dismissal from Activity

If any staff member or camper experience sickness or feel ill, we urge them to stay home and/or dismiss them for the day.

Hand Sanitizer, tissues, and wipes will be available in all areas and workstations for frequent use.

Hand-washing will occur more often, -for example- between activities or when leaving a station.

All surfaces will be sanitized frequently throughout the day and a deeper cleaning will take place at the end of the day.

Computers will be wiped

Keyboards, mice, monitors, and chairs will be wiped down between uses, before and after any food is consumed.

All staff members will wear masks throughout the entire day and we urge campers to do the same unless filming or for other necessary means.

Camper’s workstations will be six feet apart and if they work together on a project, they will wear the necessary face coverings.

We encourage campers to bring their own personalized water bottles to camp this year to prevent the possibility of mixing bottles and spreading germs.

We will provide fresh purified water to refill their containers. Water bottles will still be available when needed. Kids should also bring their lunch to prevent the possible spread of COVID-19 from delivery of ordered food.

RLS Media Camp staff will continuously monitor the NJ Covid-19 dashboard, which includes complying with all regulations as they are released.

They can be found at: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/schools-childcare/su...

No more than 12 campers per session, (6) per class will be allowed.

Thank you
