Health & Safety

2022 Health Protocols

Our experience operating the past 2 summers provided invaluable learning and allowed us to develop plans to safely operate and mitigate COVID-19 risk, so your children can have the fun summer they need.

Medical Oversight – We are partnering with our local AFC Urgent Care and camp doctor Dr. Gupta, for on-call service for all campers and staff during the camp season.

Health Directors – We now have two Camp Nurses who manage the health & well-being of our campers and staff. Our health directors manage all camper care and will provide medicine/treatments as directed.

For Summer 2022, we will follow best practice health protocols from the Westchester County Department of Health:

Mask Policy – Mask wearing at camp is not required (unless your child had Covid-19 and is returning from isolation to camp on days 6-10).

While not required, if your child does bring a mask to camp, please have it clearly labeled.

Covid-19 Information/Protocols

If your child tests positive for COVID-19:

  • Please call the camp office and let our Health Director know. Your child will need to stay out of camp for at least five days, where day 0 is the day of symptom onset or (if asymptomatic) the day of their first positive test.
  • If asymptomatic at the end of five days or if symptoms are resolving, isolation ends and your child can return to camp and wear a well-fitting mask while around others (days 6 through 10).

If we have a positive Covid-19 case in camp, we will notify all close contacts (children in the group and bus/van if applicable).

  • If your child is symptomatic, they should stay home.
  • If your child is asymptomatic and vaccinated or had Covid-19 in the previous 3 months, they can remain in camp and participate in all activities.
  • If your child is asymptomatic and unvaccinated, frequent testing (at least twice within 5 days from the date of exposure (Day 0) through at least day 5 is strongly encouraged. We also encourage mask-wearing while indoors (arts & crafts, bunks, and bus) during this time frame.
  • Testing on Day 5 of exposure is strongly recommended to detect infection, regardless of vaccination status.

Not Feeling Well?

We ask that anyone in our Nabby community (parents/guardians, staff, children) who are feeling sick or has a temperature of 100.4 or above, please stay home and do not come to camp.

All absences should be reported to the camp office by 9 am so we can plan for the group activities accordingly.

Sanitation & Hand Washing

We take great pride in the cleanliness of our facilities and use all CDC and Department of Health recommended sanitation products. We clean equipment and frequently shared surfaces throughout the day.

We encourage all campers and staff to wash hands throughout the day, upon arrival, before and after meals, after using the restroom and after activities. Our Camp features many hand wash facilities and hand sanitizer stations located throughout the property.

As many of these guidelines remain fluid and continue to evolve, we will update our Nabby community and thank all of you for your support and partnership this summer.

It’s so meaningful."
