Hello and thank you for your intersest in our camps – glad you found us!! I wanted to take this time to personally explain how we will be keeping the girls safe following Nebraska Health and CDC Guidelines.

We are committed to providing a safe and enjoyable experience at Camp Empowerment for our campers and staff.  Some of our plans are provided below.  We’ve thought through many other details and plans related to all parts of camp, from activities to registration policies to staffing in efforts to mitigate and manage exposure to COVID-19.  We will continue to follow the guidance set forth by the Nebraska Department of Health and the CDC, and review and/or revise our processes, procedures and programming as additional guidance becomes available. 

Activities: We’re considering what changes we may have to make to our programming and activities. Regardless of the changes, the overall messaging and mission of camp will remain the same! We are planning to separate into small subgroups of ten campers with consistent staff leaders and campers remaining together in the subgroups throughout the day.  We will also allow extra time for hand washing and cleaning. We will encourage social distancing, especially when indoors.  However, due to the nature of the camp and activities offered during camp, social distancing of 6 feet per person among campers and staff may not always possible. We will send updated camp activities schedules when they are finalized (within the next few days for June campers and the following week for July campers).  We are also working on separating our indoor space so that groups can stay separate if we have to be inside due to inclement weather.

Food/Lunch: We are not able to serve food buffet style like we have in the past.  Therefore, for JUNE campers, we are asking that you pack a lunch daily.  We will continue to provide coolers with pre-packaged snacks and water throughout the day. We will update for July campers as that time gets closer.

Arrival & Screenings: Each morning, our campers and staff will be greeted and have their temperature checked IN THEIR CAR and we will ask a series of questions confirming they are free of symptoms prior coming into the camp. Staff will sign child in for parent to eliminate the use of pens. Hand hygiene stations will be set up at the entrance of FITGirl, Inc or at each Van so campers can clean hands before they enter. We expect that this will only take a few minutes for each camper.   We will also screen each person after lunch.  This screening tool is NOT intended to provide medical diagnosis or treatment for any disease or condition.  Any camper or staff member with an elevated temperature and/or respiratory symptoms will not be allowed at camp and parents will need pick them up as soon as possible.  We ask parents to notify us if they will have to come into the camp area and to remain outside the facilities if possible. Staff will also escort camper to car at end of day.

Face Masks: You are welcome (and encouraged!) to send a cloth face covering with your camper.  If you do send a face mask, you are responsible for directing your camper when and how to wear the face covering and your camper should be able to put on the face covering without assistance from others.  As an activity, we may decorate bandanas so that each camper has one available to use as a face covering. In the event your child does not have a face covering, FITGirl, Inc will provide one.

Van Transportation: We will have passenger vans to go off-site for our activities.  The campers will only use the vans in their subgroups and will be assigned to the same van throughout the week.  Recognizing the small space, when traveling in a van, all staff will wear a mask and we will ask campers to wear their mask or bandana as well.  Campers and staff will also use hand sanitizer prior to entering the van.  Vans will be wiped down and sprayed after each transport. 

Cleanings: Our staff will clean each activity site before and after group use. This will include wiping down surfaces, door handles, toys, equipment, tables and chairs with disinfectant spray/wipes as much as possible.  If possible, campers will be assigned their own tools/supplies (such paint brushes and pens).  We are working with a commercial cleaning company and have been provided with EPA and OSHA approved cleaners. At the end of each day, after campers leave, staff clean and disinfect all areas and equipment used during the day. The majority of our activities will be outdoors, weather permitting.

To reduce exposure at Camp, we are implementing the following additional rules regarding participation/illness policy:

1. If your camper has a suspected or confirmed case of COID-19, or if your camper has had exposure to any person who has a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19, your camper will not be able to participate in camp for 14 days after completion of the illness or for 14 days from exposure.

2. If your camper or anyone in the same household as your camper has a fever of 100.4 (38.00C) or above or other signs of illness, including cough, your camper will not be able to participate in camp for 14 days after symptoms subside or a negative COID-19 test.  Please keep your camper home and notify FITGirl, Inc.

3. If your camper or anyone in the same household as your camper has traveled to highly impacted COVID-19 areas or has traveled internationally within the last 14 days, your camper will not be able to participate in Camp.

4. If your camper, or anyone in the same household as your camper, has a serious underlying health condition, please discuss camp participation with that person’s healthcare provider to assess the risk and to determine if your Camper should attend camp.  

Even with all of the planning, preparation and changes, we cannot eliminate all possible exposure to COVID-19.  We encourage all parents to review the information regarding COVID-19 available from the CDC and local public health department and to be on the alert for signs of illness in their camper.  Consistent with guidance we received for  summer camps, a waiver of liability will need to be completed for each camper and returned to us.  We will send this out with our health information forms.  More information regarding our Disease/Infection Plan will be made available on our website.  
In this ever-changing landscape of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is still possible that we will not be able to offer camp this summer if government authorities and experts do not authorize or recommend that camps operate.  We are closely monitoring the situation and keep you updated as needed.

Both camps – drop off and pick up will be at FITGirl, Inc (156th & Maple). June Camps: drop off’s can begin at 7:30am and pick-ups will end at 5:30pm. July Camps: We have more attendees requiring more planning and will first send out a questionnaire to parents within the week to collect additional information. Girls will be able to choose friends they want to be “grouped” with, similar to choosing cabin partners!
