Rockland Harbor YMCA Summer Camp
BUILDING A LIFETIME OF MEMORIES!
ROCKLAND HARBOR YMCA (RHY) SUMMER CAMP
Campers must be 7 years old at the start of their camp week.
Come enjoy summer with the Rockland Harbor YMCA (RHY) Summer Day Camp where campers make new friends and gain self-confidence! Each week campers enjoy activities such as sports, games, arts & crafts, reading and swimming. RHY Summer Day Camp offers highly trained staff at a low camper-to-staff ratio making our camp a perfect choice for parents who need a fun, safe place for their children during summer break with safety being their #1 priority.
Your child's health is our priority. The Y is taking every precaution we can to ensure our Summer Camps are safe.
What our Camps will look like:
- All field trips have been cancelled
- Drop offs: Parents will remain in their vehicle; health screening questions will be conducted on camper before the child is cleared to exit the vehicle and join camp.
- Campers will be divided into small groups of 10 or less, called pods.
- Pick-ups: Parents will remain in vehicle and a Director will radio your child’s pod for camper to be signed out.
- Campers will be with the same pod and counselors for the entire week including lunches.
- Staff will wear masks while in close proximity of a camper or pod. Campers are not be required to wear masks, but may at parents discretion.
- Each pod will have extra sanitizing and cleaning products.
- Activities may differ from camp to camp and be location specific while keeping 6’ apart: swimming, hiking, canoeing, arts & crafts, movies, various pod field games
- Pods will rotate station to station throughout the day. Staff will sanitize all equipment and have campers washing hands before rotating to next station.
What the Y is doing:
- Requiring camper to wash hands before and after meals and snacks, along with additional times throughout the day.
- Sanitizing areas campers are in throughout the day.
- Disinfecting equipment and toys before and after use.
- Limiting person to person contact
What you can do:
- Talk with your child about washing hands, keeping hands away from mouth, nose and eyes and not sharing food and beverages.
- Please keep your child home if sick or with fever.
- Before returning to camp after an illness, please provide a doctor's note.
- Remind your child that the Y is safe and to have fun!
