In order to provide the safest environment for campers and staff, camps will have limited capacities this year. As a result, cancelations will negatively impact other families that may have otherwise attended camp.

  • There are no refunds for children who are unable to complete the camp for medical or behavioral reasons.  
  • If UAYA Ellenville Camp cancels programming during your registered week(s), 100% of your camp fee(s) will be refunded.

COVID-19 Procedure

Due to strict restrictions on having outside visitors, the camp will be treated as a “closed bubble” this summer. With the current restrictions, only campers, staff, and registered guests will be permitted on Oselia during camps in order to provide the utmost safety and reduce risks for everyone. Please know that this is done to protect our campers.

Health Screening

All campers and staff are required to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of arrival to camp or show proof of vaccination.   Daily screenings of all campers and staff will include temperature checks and COVID-19 health questions. 

Per NY State guidelines, fully vaccinated against COVID-19 is defined as 14 days after completion of the vaccine series. All other individuals are considered unvaccinated. 

Any additional testing during camp, as determined to be necessary by the camp Medical Director, will be at the expense of the parents/guardians. 

Upon Arrival at Camp:

  • All campers and staff must present documentation of a negative COVID-19 diagnostic test performed within the last 72 hours or proof of having completed the COVID-19 vaccination series at least 14 days prior to the date of arrival at camp or documentation of laboratory confirmed COVID-19 in the previous 3 months.
  • All campers and staff must be screened for COVID-19.       
    • At a minimum, screening must include temperature checks and be completed using a questionnaire that determines whether the individual has: 
  1. knowingly been in close or proximate contact in the past 10 days with anyone who has tested positive through a diagnostic test for COVID 19 or who has or had symptoms of COVID-19       
  2. tested positive through a diagnostic test for COVID-19 in the past 10 days; 
  3. has experienced any symptoms of COVID-19 including a temperature of greater than 100.4°F in the past 10 days and/or 
  4. has traveled within the past 10 days and not complied with requirements of the New York State Travel Advisory.

Throughout the Duration of Camp:

  • Staff must check camper temperatures every morning and evening, and make visual inspections of campers throughout the day for signs of potential COVID-19 illness which could include flushed cheeks, rapid breathing or difficulty breathing (without recent physical activity), fatigue, or extreme fussiness.
  • Staff must complete temperature checks daily in the morning and evening and be instructed to report to the infirmary immediately if they are experiencing COVID-19 related symptoms or become aware of any potential exposures, as noted on the questionnaire.       
  • Any camper or staff member who tests positive for COVID-19 during the camp session will be required to vacate the premises within 24 hours of confirmed positivity.  Any additional testing during camp, as determined to be necessary by the camp Medical Director, will be at the expense of the parents/guardians. 

Hygiene, Cleaning, and Disinfection

  • Staff and children/campers must perform hand hygiene immediately upon entering the program       
    • Upon arrival to the first program activity; or between all program activities;
    • After using the restroom;
    • Before eating; and,
    • Before departing the last program activity. 
  • Appropriate cleaning and disinfection supplies will be shared and used on frequently touched surfaces (e.g. door handles, handrails, toys, art supplies, areas where children eat) and encourage their staff to use these supplies following manufacturer’s instructions for use before and after use of these surfaces, followed by hand hygiene. 

Mask Wearing

All camps will follow mask wearing requirements set by the New York State Department of Health. At this time, masks must be worn by all campers, staff and camp family members staying on Oselia who are not fully vaccinated when indoors and when social distancing cannot be enforced outdoors. For those participating in overnight camps, masks will not be worn while sleeping, showering, or swimming.  

Per NY State guidelines, fully vaccinated against COVID-19 is defined as 14 days after completion of the vaccine series. All other individuals are considered unvaccinated. 

Meals / Snacks

Overnight Camp: All meals will be eaten outside. Campers will be assigned designated tables either on the outdoor kitchen deck or under the pavilion which is within proximity to the kitchen. The tables will be spaced 6 feet apart. A system will be in place for safely serving food to campers and staff.

Campers will only be allowed individually wrapped snack items which will remain in komanda who will designate specific times for snack.   Sharing of snacks is not allowed.  Bottled water will also be allowed.   Proper recycling will be made available to lessen environmental impact. 

Day Camp: An individual, pre-packaged snack will be provided during snack time for each camper. Lunch will be served outside.

Cohorts

Each room will act as a cohort aka “riy”.  Cohorts will remain together during group activities and meals.

Supplies/Equipment 

Sanitation: Each cohort/”riy” will be assigned their own bag of supplies/equipment so that they will be the only ones using those supplies. Staff will sanitize equipment between activities and after each use.
                       

Pool Time               

The pool will be closed during each camp’s designated swim time to anyone not participating in camp.  Camps running during the same week will have staggered pool times.                    

Sunday Free Time                   

Free time on Sunday, aka “Dozvilia” will not be allowed this year.  Parents, however, will be allowed to pick up and drop off approved items (e.g. clean laundry, additional snacks and/or water) during the designated hours as communicated by each camp.  Parents will not be allowed to visit with their children when dropping off or picking up items.
