Camp Covid Protocol/Procedures

The safety of our students and teaching artists is our highest priority. In preparation for a safe in person summer theatre experience we will be following up to date state and local guidelines regarding Covid-19. We are also carefully preparing our space and curriculum, taking into consideration adjustments that may be needed to assure the health and safety of our campers and staff. We will modify, adapt or revise these guidelines as we receive new information from state and local agencies.

  • Health Screening: Parents will need to confirm that the student or no one in their household has exhibited symptoms of Covid-19 or been in contact with persons with Covid-19 in the past 14 days.
  • Temperature Check: At check-in camper will have temperature taken. Anyone with temperature of 100 or higher will not be able to enter camp and must wait for 72 hrs to return to participate.
  • Lowest Risk: Small groups of campers stay together all day, each day. Campers remain at least 6 feet apart and do not share objects. Outdoor activities when permitted. All campers are from the local geographic area (e.g., city, town, county, community)
  • Promoting Behaviors that Reduce Spread including staying home when appropriate, hand hygiene and respiratory etiquette, teaching and reinforcing the use of masks, adequate supplies available
  • Masks will be worn at all times except when eating meals. Masking requirements may change for outdoor activity based on public guidelines, MET Covid protocols and full class approval.
  • Signs and messages of proper and safe procedures
  • Maintaining Healthy Environments through cleaning and disinfection, discouraging shared objects, ensure ventilation systems operate properly, modifying layouts and utilizing barriers & physical guides.
  • Access to MET Covid Captain who will be responsible for responding to COVID-19 concerns.
  • Have campers bring their own meals, and eat in separate areas or with their smaller group, instead of in a large group to ensure the safety of children with food allergies. Lunch will be outdoors when possible
  • Trained staff on all safety protocols
  • All campers will go through Camp Safety Orientation at beginning of each session.
