Summer Camp COVID-19 Procedures and Health Guidelines
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, some camps have been canceled and many of our planned programs and activities have been modified to meet the health and safety guidance from the County Health Department and the CDC. Below is the Summer Camp 2020 COVID-19 Procedures and Policies document. This document will be sent a link via ePACT for parents/guardians to review the new safety guidelines and help us keep everyone safe!
- Group Size - Campers will be divided into stable groups of no more than 12, each with a dedicated area and team of counselors.Group size may be increased, if and/or when permitted by the County of Yolo and the State.
- Social distancing – Camp activities have been modified and will be structured to allow for as much social distancing as possible.
- Cleaning/disinfecting – Facility tables & chairs, bathrooms, toys, equipment and other high-touch surfaces will be cleaned and sanitized on a regular basis in order to minimize cross contamination.
- Handwashing - Regular handwashing will be enforced for staff and campers.
- Face coverings – Campers are REQUIRED to wear face coverings. Campers will be allowed to remove their face covering during meal periods and certain social distancing camp activities. Parents should send their child to camp with a clean face covering on a daily basis, along with a clearly marked plastic bag for storage during the day. Camp staff are required to wear face coverings during all times at work, except for meal period.
- Drop off and pick up - Families are highly encouraged to designate one person to drop off and pick up camper on a daily basis. Parents check-in will take place outdoors. Please be mindful of social distancing while waiting to check children into camp. Additional information will be distributed prior to the start of camp.
- Field trips and swimming – All field trips have been cancelled. Trips to the pool are not likely and will depend on operations at the various City aquatic facilities.
- Parent is responsible for screening themselves and their child at home for symptoms of COVID-19, including fever, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, chills, muscle pain, rash, sore throat, or new loss of taste or smell. Anyone with symptoms consistent with COVID-19, including the child, should remain at home in isolation for a minimum of 10 days, including at least 72 hours without a fever (without fever-reducing medication) and improvement in other symptoms.
- Additional health screening will take place upon arrival at camp, including a temperature reading and general questions regarding COVID-19 symptoms and/or exposure. Parent must be present for this screening. Symptoms that will preclude children from camp include fever (over 100.4F), cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, chills, muscle pain, rash, sore throat, or new loss of taste or smell.
- Children will not be allowed to attend camp if they or any household members have a fever of 100.4F or above, or display other symptoms of COVID-19, as listed above. Campers cannot return to camp for at least 10 days, including 72 hours fever free (without the use of fever reducing medication). Campers may be allowed to return sooner with a doctor’s note unless the camper is required to self-quarantine under the County’s Public health Order.
- Children who become sick during the camp day will be separated from the group and sent home immediately.
- Parents must notify camp staff immediately if their child or any household member tests positive for COVID-19. In such a situation, the camper may not return to camp until they are allowed to exit self-isolation or self-quarantine under the County Health Orders.

ePACT Digital Emergency Forms
City of Davis Parks and Community Services Department uses a software program called ePACT Network. This is an easy-to-use system that replaces the need for paper emergency and medical forms. With ePACT, you only need to do it once. If something changes, update your ePACT record and rest assured that we receive the update automatically.

Families that have previously used the software will need to reconfirm their account information in order for participants to attend camp. New families will receive an invite to create their account in early May.

Fee Subsidy Program Application
What is the fee subsidy/scholarship program?
The City of Davis allocates funds each year to help offset the cost of City recreation programs for low income households. Those who qualify receive a discounted 50% of program fees up to their allotted household amount. Because the amount of funding and number of subsidy requests varies, we are not able to provide a specific income cut-off for applications. Families with the lowest incomes will be granted subsidies first.
Scholarship applications for the periods of Summer 2020, Fall 2020, and Winter/Spring 2021 are now available. Applications are due by February 14, 2020 at 5:00 pm, applications received after the due date will be reviewed and placed on a waiting list.
