FITGirl, Inc Camp Empowerment

The health and wellbeing of our community is our #1 priority and we will continue to follow all covid-19 safety guidelines. Last year we served 200 campers and did not have one covid-19 outbreak.

1. Drop-off and pick-up times will be staggered to ensure there aren’t large groups of people gathering at one time. You’ll receive a confirmation of your camper’s specific time and location for pick-up and drop-off via email prior to the start of camp. 

2. Campers will be placed in small groups for the entirety of the week. The mixing and convening of these groups will be avoided. 

4. To minimize sharing, we’ll be taking steps to ensure enough individual supplies. 

5. We will increase access to handwashing stations and hand sanitizer and regularly remind campers of when and how to wash their hands effectively. 

6. Participants will bring their own lunch and be reminded not to share food and utensils.

7. Masks will be worn indoors, in groups with presenters, on transportation, in bathrooms, and during pick up and drop off.
