DAILY PRECAUTIONS AT CAMP FOR COVID-19 SAFETY
DROPPING OFF CAMPERS
We encourage you to review Girl Scouts Together with your family to understand Girl Scouts of Oregon and Southwest Washington's guidelines and begin considering what your family’s preferences would be for in-person Girl Scout activities. Camp Segonku is following Washington State guidelines for Child Care, Youth Development, and Day Camps During COVID-19 Outbreak.
(Updated April 14, 2021)
At this time, everyone 5 years of age and up is required to wear face coverings, and follow physical distancing and safe hygiene practices. Maintaining these safe practices can be challenging for young children; therefore, to support these safe practices during in-person Girl Scout activities, a higher level of adult presence is required during Girl Scout Daisy meetings and activities. Daisy troops must follow a ratio of two adults for Daisy cohorts of six or fewer girls (2:6) and three adults for seven to 10 girl
Everyone in each vehicle must be wearing a mask and stay in the car until staff has taken the temperature of your camper with a contactless thermometer. Your camper will be asked a few questions and once approved, she will be escorted out of the car and guided to her unit.
• Stay home if you are sick.
• Cough and sneeze into a tissue, throw the tissue in the trash, and wash or sanitize your hands.
• Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. Wash hands if you do touch them.
• Maintain physical distancing.
Camp Segonu has always separated girls into specific age units of approximately 6-8 girls. These units have been able to mingle with other units in the past, however, this year each unit will do all activities within their pod/cohort. If your daughter has friends of the same age level she would like to be with in her unit, please list those names on the camper registration form.
Hugs, handshakes, “high-fives,” and even activities like the friendship circle or squeeze can transmit COVID-19 from person to person. We will refrain from these gestures for the time being. Volunteers will create a safe way for girls to greet instead (like tapping elbows.)
There will be no community supplies in the pods, each girl will have her own supplies.
HEALTH AND SAFETY
The Camp Segonku Health Manager would like to remind girls that Girl Scouts wear face coverings (masks) not only to protect themselves but to protect others. Face coverings are a civic responsibility and a sign of caring for the community. Girls can bring their own face coverings. Camp Segonku will have disposable masks on hand for those who need them.
Each camper will receive a neck lanyard with a personal squeeze container full of antibacterial gel to use throughout the day. There will be handwashing stations set up as usual, along with Covid-19 safety volunteers keeping areas clean.
