GROM Camp 2021 Registration is LIVE – updated COVID-19 Protocols

Capital SUP Grom Camp is back for our 7th season! Our four-days kids “Grom” camps are filled with learning sessions, water safety, how to SUP, SUP Yoga & Fitness, SUP Games, Beach Clean Ups, and Clean Water Education. Most importantly, every Grom will leave camp with a greater appreciation and love for the outdoors!

We’re planning on making the camps this season the best ones yet! To ensure your kid’s safety at Capital SUP, here are the updated COVID-19 protocols we are implementing this season.

CAPITAL SUP GENERAL COVID-19 PROTOCOLS

GROM CAMP COVID-19 RESPONSE PLAN

The below Safety COVID-19 Response Plan has been designed to ensure the safety of all 2020 Capital SUP Grom Camp participants. Following guidelines from the Center of Disease Control (CDC) and directives from the Maryland Department of Health (MDH) regarding Youth Camps, the following plans, protocols, and actions will be active during all Summer 2020 Grom camps:

OUR PLAN FOR DISEASE SPREAD PREVENTION

  • All campers must be residents of the State of Maryland.
  • All campers and staff will be physically distant wherever possible.
    • Parents & Guardians will be allowed to check-in their campers within a window rather than an exact time, to limit their exposure to other parents and non-campers.
    • Markings & signage in addition to the leadership of camp counselors will be available to help campers maintain physical distancing.
  • All activities during the week of Grom Camp will take place outside, either on-land or on-water.
    • Face masks (image below) will be provided to campers on the first day, and their use will be mandatory on-land for all campers
      • Masks will be available in smaller kids sizing, and will come with adjustable ear straps.
    • Any parents checking-in or dropping-off their camper(s) must also wear a mask.
  • Signs & Instruction for Safety will be provided.
    • Signs will be present on sight as a reminder for campers of safety guidelines related to reducing the spread of COVID-19, in addition to verbal instruction provided by camp counselors.
  • Handwashing stations will be present on-land for campers to wash their hands before & after touching any equipment, food, or common surfaces.

  • We have an additional plan for cleaning & sanitizing all equipment and high-touch surfaces! (see below)
  • All campers will be in split into groups of no more than 10 campers at a time, with a small camper to instructor ratio of 4:1!

OUR PLAN FOR CLEANING & SANITIZING

  • All paddleboards, paddles, leashes, and lifejackets will be sanitized prior to use by campers before & after each-day of camp.
    • Counselors & staff will ensure that equipment will not be shared or swapped between campers unless properly sanitized in between uses.
  • Any high-touch surfaces will be cleaned at frequent intervals and whenever necessary.

OUR PLAN FOR MONITORING THE HEALTH OF OUR GROMS & STAFF

  • Any camper with underlying medical conditions needs to get clearance from their physician before participating and be able to provide proof of that clearance.
  • All campers and camp counselors will get their temperatures checked with a contactless infrared thermometer when they get to camp each day!
  • Any campers and counselors who are experiencing symptoms before camp will not be allowed to participate and must stay at home.
    • If your child is unable to attend camp due to COVID-19 symptoms, we can work with you to rebook them for a later week of camp when it is safe for them to attend again.
  • Here is the CDC’s list of symptoms for COVID-19:
    • Fever or chills
    • Cough
    • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
    • Fatigue
    • Muscle or body aches
    • Headache
    • New loss of taste or smell
    • Sore throat
    • Congestion or runny nose
    • Nausea or vomiting
    • Diarrhea
  • Look for emergency warning signs for COVID-19. if someone is showing any of these signs, seek emergency medical care immediately:
    • Trouble breathing
    • Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
    • New confusion
    • Inability to wake or stay awake
    • Bluish lips or face
  • Our counselors are all CPR certified and know how to perform hands-only CPR

OUR FOOD PLAN

  • Delicious & nutritious meals will be provided during each camp session
  • All food will be prepared and individually packaged by Luna Blu Restaurant in Annapolis, MD!
  • Campers will be instructed and required to wash their hands before eating and maintain social distancing when being served their packaged meal.

With all of these new protocols in place, Capital SUP has so many exciting and engaging activities planned for our Groms to soak up summer of the water, safely!
