Health and Safety Protocol

Fall 2020 Wildernest Programs

Our safety policy is based on CDC guidelines for maintaining a safe day camp environment with minimal risk of contact with and spread of coronavirus. In order to participate in our fall 2020 programs, we ask all parents and children to agree to this protocol. Please feel free to email us with any questions at

Physical Distancing

  • Participants will spend most of the day in small groups of 5 to 8 children.

  • 6 feet of distance will be maintained during crafts and group activities.

  • Outside in open-air environment at all times. If rains, will gather under bell-tent tarps.

  • Drive-through drop-off/pick-up with window of time to stagger traffic.



  • Participants bring masks to wear at times when 6 feet of distance is not able to be maintained.

    • Cloth masks (with 2-3 layers of material) or disposable surgical masks.

    • Masks must be washed after each day of program.

    • N95 masks encouraged if participant has compromised immune system or at-risk family member.

    • Face shields alone are insufficient, but may be worn with mask.

    • Parents may request that their child wears a mask at all times and staff will uphold this during the program.   


Hand Hygiene

  • Children are encouraged to purchase their own personal crafting supplies and tools, to minimize sharing of items.

  • Hands sanitized at arrival and departure, before and after eating or touching any supplies.


Symptom Screening

  • Temperatures taken on arrival, 100.3F or lower to participate.

  • Children with symptoms or family member with symptoms stay home.
