12:00 AM - 12:00 PM    5K, 3K, & 1K Trail Runs at Hard'ack - No registration required
WE ARE BACK!!! People have been asking and we figured it was about time to kick off the trail running series for the rest of the summer. This year the series is going to look a little bit different than it has in the past. To avoid gathering crowds we will set up the course and encourage people to get out and run it each week. For people who don't want to run or would like to bring your kids, walking is encouraged as well. Each Friday we will post on our Facebook page asking who ran/ walked and what their time was or for a picture if you chose not to time yourself. Participants will be asked to post a picture of themselves on the trail, before or after. Comment that picture on our Facebook post for your chance to win a local gift card!!!Right now there is only 1 course set up. That course is marked by white field paint on the ground. There is a start/ finish line in the back fields and there are arrows sending your out and bringing your back. The course with the white arrows is 1.8 miles (3k). We are working on clearing all the single track area to set up another course. Summary- 1 course set up marked by white field paint arrows on the ground (1.8 miles)- Course has the same start and finish line. - White arrow course is only on the wider cross country trails - Run the course any day that week and post a picture on our Facebook status Friday for your chance to win a local gift card. - If you don't want to run, bring your kids for a nice walk- No registration requiredPhoto Credit: Stina Booth
 
7:00 AM - 7:30 AM    Day Camp - For kids K-8th Grade -Summer 2020 - Summer Day Camp - Early Drop Off
St. Albans Recreation Day Camp Opening – Summer 2020 Information St.  Albans Recreation department is pleased to announce that we’ll be offering a fun and safe camp option for families this summer.  There will be changes made to camp just as there have been to day to day life everywhere.  Changes made to camp are in direct correlation with the recommendations issued by the State of Vermont Department of Health.  Our Camp will meet or exceed those expectations.  Our goal is to provide a fun experience for your child in a safe and healthy environment.  Here is some important information for families. Dates- June 1, 2020 – August 21, 2020 We’re starting camp 3 weeks early to help out families returning to work while school is out going from 9 weeks to 12 weeks available. June 1 through June 19 will be held at Barlow Street Community Center, June 22 through August 21 will be divided between St. Albans City School and Barlow Street Community Center. Families will be notified by 6/19/2020 which location their child will be at.Hours – 7:30am-4:30pm  Locations- Camp will be held in separate locations to allow the space required for healthy distancing.  Barlow Street Community Center & St. Albans City School.Registration – St. Albans Recreation Department prides itself in being responsive to the needs of our families.  In the past we allowed families to pick and choose days they’d like to attend throughout the summer and we allow online registration right up until the moment you pull into the parking lot.  We also welcome part time campers. We work with families to make last minute changes and issue credits.  Most camps do not allow this flexibility. One change we have to make this summer is with registration. Campers must be registered by 12noon on the Thursday before the week your child is going to attend camp.  This change applies to part time campers and families that register week by week.  Those who have already registered for the summer do not need to make any changes.  We need this lead time to assemble smaller groups and to notify families which group and location their child should report to.Smaller Groups – Campers will be divided into smaller groups this summer.  Campers and staff will stay with the same group from start to finish to the degree this is possible.  Siblings will be assigned to the same group (unless parents request otherwise) The State of Vermont has authorized groups of 25 people including staff.  We will remain at or below that group size.Face Masks – Campers and counselors will wear masks as in all situations as recommended by CDC. Disposable masks will be available when needed, but families should provide 2 clean masks each day for their child.  Masks should be washed daily.  When children are outside and apart from one another, they will not need to wear their mask.  When they are indoors, or in closer contact with others, they will need to wear their mask.Distancing – Each group will adhere to social distancing standards of 6 feet to the extent possible. Face masks are not a replacement for distancing.  While we used to have 6 campers at a table working on an art or science project – this summer we’ll have 2 kids working at opposite ends of the tables.  At lunch, spots will be painted on the grass to remind kids what 6 feet is.Outside – It’s always been a goal of our camp to be outside as much as possible.  This summer more than ever we plan to eat and play outdoors by incorporating the use of tents.  In the past we’ve done art projects, presentations, movies inside – this summer we’ll be outside with those activities as much as possible.Drop Off & Pick Ups – If possible, families should have the same person do drop off and pick up each day – again to limit contacts.  Those doing drop off and pick ups must wear masks. Only one person at drop off and pick up.  If possible, older adults 65+ should not be tasked with drop off or pick up. You will be notified in advance of which group your camper is in and the location will be readily marked so you’ll know where to head. Pick up for kids based out of Barlow Street Community Center will be at the field across from St. Albans City Pool.  Pick up for campers based out of SACS will be at the school on the west side of the building.  No one who is ill, has symptoms of COVID 19 or is self-quarantining due to close contact with a COVID 19 positive person can do drop off or pick up.  Parents will respect distancing with staff and other campers during all interactions.At Drop Off – Campers will report directly to the head counselor of their small group – Not the one point drop-off we’ve used in the past.  At check in – every camper will be screened for temperature, the adult dropping off the camper will be asked the same screening questions everyday – even if the camper has attended each day of camp.  If a camper has a temperature of 100.4 F or greater they will not be allowed at camp.  Health Screening  A Daily Health Check will be conducted for each child attending camp upon arrival each day.These questions will be asked every day: Have you been in close contact with a person who has COVID-19? Do you feel unwell with any symptoms consistent with COVID-19? For example, have you had a cough, high temperature, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or new loss of taste or smell? Child will be screened for temperature. A visual inspection of the child for signs of infection, which could include flushed cheeks, fatigue, extreme fussiness, etc. will be made Exclusions –  Anyone diagnosed with COVID-19 or awaiting test-results should self-isolate until: It’s been 3 full days of no fever without the use of fever-reducing medication, And Other symptoms have improved, and  3. At least 10 days have passed since symptoms first appeared. The following children and staff will be excluded from care:  Sick for any reason Showing symptoms (outlined below) of COVID-19 Have been in close contact with someone with COVID-19 in the last 14 days A cough, fever, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, chills, repeated shakingwith chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or new loss of taste or smell Fever (temperature higher than 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit) Severe sore throat that lasts more than 48 hours, especially with a fever A significant rash, particularly when other symptoms are presentLarge amounts of discolored nasal discharge Severe ear pain Uncontrolled cough Diarrhea Severe headache, especially with a fever Healthy children and staff with the following symptoms/conditions may attend programming: Allergy symptoms (with no fever) that cause coughing and clear runny nose maystay if they have medically diagnosed allergies and follow medical treatmentplans. Well-controlled, mild asthma At Pick Up – One person will show up for pick up.  Information, unless urgent regarding the camper’s day will be communicated via phone or through email whenever possible.  Campers will be ready to go and pick up will be swift.  Hygiene – Campers will wash hands upon arrival at camp, before and after using the bathroom, before and after eating and throughout the day as deemed necessary.  Hand sanitizer stations will be available throughout camp. Camper groups at Barlow Street Community Center will be assigned a specific bathroom for their group and will use that one exclusively. Campers at SACS will use one of 2 bathrooms that will be used exclusively by campers and staff.Food – Camp will continue to participate in the Federal Summer Lunch Program supplying a morning snack and lunch.  If you prefer your child can pack a lunch, snacks & beverage.  Each child should bring a water bottle and bottles should be cleaned every night.  Camper lunch bags will not be able to be stored in a refrigerator so be sure to include ice packs if necessary.  No food will be shared between campers and no birthday cakes or treats this summer.  Camp is PEANUT AND TREE NUT FREE.  Please keep this in mind when packing your child’s lunch.Cleaning – Our facilities have always been cleaned daily and often throughout the day and that will continue with disinfection of all common and frequently touched surfaces on a regular schedule throughout the day and as deemed necessary.  Equipment & Supplies – Toys and sports equipment will be cleaned after each round of play and before another group uses them.  We will not use sensory tables, soft stuffed animals or dress up clothes.  Each camper will have their own art supplies in a Ziploc bag with their name on it.  They will be the only ones that use them.Backpacks & Stuff – Camper’s backpacks and belongings will be stored in each small group’s classroom in each camper’s specific and labeled spot. Each camper should bring swim suit, towel, sunscreen & water bottle. Please do not send more “stuff” than fits in your camper’s back pack.  Please consider a swim shirt in place of sunscreen for your camper.  If you’d rather not do that, please send a spray sunscreen.  We will supervise sunscreen application showing kids how to apply to their face, arms and neck etc but a spray would work best for us to apply to back.Sick Kids or Family – If a child, staff person or parent tests positive for COVID 19 then they will not be allowed at camp until they no longer test positive and have had no fever for 72 hours without fever reducing medications or for a minimum of 2 weeks, whichever is longer.  If there is a confirmed case of COVID 19 at camp families will be notified and the smaller group will close down and await guidance from the Department of Health and their tracing team before resuming.  New this year – each day at drop off families will need to provide the phone number of an adult that can pick up their child if the child becomes ill at camp.  This pick up needs to happen within 15 minutes – so parents working out of town will want to consider this before the start of camp.  A sick camper will be isolated immediately upon symptoms and a staffer will remain with them until they are picked up.Travelers- Campers from other states will be eligible to attend camp after they have been quarantined after entering VT for 14 days.  If a camper or staff member leaves the state for a vacation (unless they travel to the newly defined counties in neighboring states -so defined by the State of Vermont - ) they will not be able to return to camp until they have been quarantined in VT for 14 days or they can quarantine for 7 days and then be tested for COVID19, if the test is negative they can attend camp.Staff – We’re happy to announce that Ben Lovelette has been named as Day Camp Director.  Ben is a 2020 Graduate of UVM and will be taking a position at St. Albans City School as a Math & Social Studies teacher.  Ben was on staff last year as a counselor.  He’s been working on adjustments to camp in light of COVID19 from the start with our Program Manager Andrew Gratton and myself.  All staff will be screened in the same manner as campers each morning and will adhere to the same protocol listed above for a sick camper. We’re also delighted that we have a high number of returning staff from last year with 7 new staffers joining us.  Even in light of everything going on – we plan to have a great summer!Visiting the Pool – We’re happy that St. Albans City Pool will be open for Day Campers this summer.  The CDC reports that a clean, properly chlorinated pool does not support COVID19 virus.  At this time, it looks like campers will be able to visit the pool daily but for shorter periods of time than in previous years to keep the group size within the state guidelines.  We will work with the kids to help them maintain social distancing while in the pool and on the deck.  No masks will be worn in the pool, masks will be required on the pool deck if campers are not 6 feet apart.Swim Lessons & Swim Team – We will transport kids to and from swim lessons and swim team.  Campers will use the bathroom and change into their swim suit at camp arriving at the pool ready to go.  They will leave the pool in their swim suit and change back into their clothes at camp.  We reserve the right to make changes at any time – We have spent a great deal of time considering what changes need to happen to make our camp a fun and safe place to be.  We are prepared to adapt, alter or cancel camp at any time if state recommendations change.  As health guidelines change and risk decreases or increases if we need to make changes we will not hesitate to do so.  Our primary goal is health and safety.  We already know a lot about fun and we’re determined to have some while keeping everyone safe.  That said, the precautions we’re taking will undoubtedly add a few minutes to your drop off time in the morning.  Please bear with us.  We’ll be in contact with families throughout the summer and please contact us anytime you have a question, concern or suggestion at 802-524-1500 x *266 or at k.viens@stalbansvt.comConclusion – (for now) This is by no means an exhaustive list. We have been meeting for weeks discussing activities, deciding what equipment we need to ad, organizing extensive trainings for staff and thinking outside the box.   As a staff we will continue to meet and make adjustments daily. The Vermont Department of Health has issued revised Guidance for Childcare Programs, Summer Programs & Afterschool Programs in light of COVID 19.  We will strictly adhere to those requirements or exceed them.  We value the trust and confidence you place in us to provide a safe environment for your family and we’ll continue to be in touch. Contact the office at 524-1500 x *266, x *268 or the Recreation Cell phone at 309-1810THEMES FOR EACH WEEK WILL BE ADDED SOON-Week 1 - June 1st - June 5thWeek 2 - June 8th- June 12thWeek 3 - June 15th-June 19th Week 4 - June 22nd - 26th:  Week 5 - June 29th - July 3rd Week 6 - July 6th - 10thWeek 7 - July 13th - 17thWeek 8 - July 20th - 24thWeek 9 - July 27th - 31stWeek 10 - August 3rd - 7thWeek 11 - August 10th - 14thWeek 12 - August 17th - 21stPayment options:Register for all weeks you want this summer and pay only for one week at the time of the registration.

4:30 PM - 5:00 PM    Day Camp - For kids K-8th Grade -Summer 2020 - Summer Day Camp - Late Pick Up
St. Albans Recreation Day Camp Opening – Summer 2020 Information St.  Albans Recreation department is pleased to announce that we’ll be offering a fun and safe camp option for families this summer.  There will be changes made to camp just as there have been to day to day life everywhere.  Changes made to camp are in direct correlation with the recommendations issued by the State of Vermont Department of Health.  Our Camp will meet or exceed those expectations.  Our goal is to provide a fun experience for your child in a safe and healthy environment.  Here is some important information for families. Dates- June 1, 2020 – August 21, 2020 We’re starting camp 3 weeks early to help out families returning to work while school is out going from 9 weeks to 12 weeks available. June 1 through June 19 will be held at Barlow Street Community Center, June 22 through August 21 will be divided between St. Albans City School and Barlow Street Community Center. Families will be notified by 6/19/2020 which location their child will be at.Hours – 7:30am-4:30pm  Locations- Camp will be held in separate locations to allow the space required for healthy distancing.  Barlow Street Community Center & St. Albans City School.Registration – St. Albans Recreation Department prides itself in being responsive to the needs of our families.  In the past we allowed families to pick and choose days they’d like to attend throughout the summer and we allow online registration right up until the moment you pull into the parking lot.  We also welcome part time campers. We work with families to make last minute changes and issue credits.  Most camps do not allow this flexibility. One change we have to make this summer is with registration. Campers must be registered by 12noon on the Thursday before the week your child is going to attend camp.  This change applies to part time campers and families that register week by week.  Those who have already registered for the summer do not need to make any changes.  We need this lead time to assemble smaller groups and to notify families which group and location their child should report to.Smaller Groups – Campers will be divided into smaller groups this summer.  Campers and staff will stay with the same group from start to finish to the degree this is possible.  Siblings will be assigned to the same group (unless parents request otherwise) The State of Vermont has authorized groups of 25 people including staff.  We will remain at or below that group size.Face Masks – Campers and counselors will wear masks as in all situations as recommended by CDC. Disposable masks will be available when needed, but families should provide 2 clean masks each day for their child.  Masks should be washed daily.  When children are outside and apart from one another, they will not need to wear their mask.  When they are indoors, or in closer contact with others, they will need to wear their mask.Distancing – Each group will adhere to social distancing standards of 6 feet to the extent possible. Face masks are not a replacement for distancing.  While we used to have 6 campers at a table working on an art or science project – this summer we’ll have 2 kids working at opposite ends of the tables.  At lunch, spots will be painted on the grass to remind kids what 6 feet is.Outside – It’s always been a goal of our camp to be outside as much as possible.  This summer more than ever we plan to eat and play outdoors by incorporating the use of tents.  In the past we’ve done art projects, presentations, movies inside – this summer we’ll be outside with those activities as much as possible.Drop Off & Pick Ups – If possible, families should have the same person do drop off and pick up each day – again to limit contacts.  Those doing drop off and pick ups must wear masks. Only one person at drop off and pick up.  If possible, older adults 65+ should not be tasked with drop off or pick up. You will be notified in advance of which group your camper is in and the location will be readily marked so you’ll know where to head. Pick up for kids based out of Barlow Street Community Center will be at the field across from St. Albans City Pool.  Pick up for campers based out of SACS will be at the school on the west side of the building.  No one who is ill, has symptoms of COVID 19 or is self-quarantining due to close contact with a COVID 19 positive person can do drop off or pick up.  Parents will respect distancing with staff and other campers during all interactions.At Drop Off – Campers will report directly to the head counselor of their small group – Not the one point drop-off we’ve used in the past.  At check in – every camper will be screened for temperature, the adult dropping off the camper will be asked the same screening questions everyday – even if the camper has attended each day of camp.  If a camper has a temperature of 100.4 F or greater they will not be allowed at camp.  Health Screening  A Daily Health Check will be conducted for each child attending camp upon arrival each day.These questions will be asked every day: Have you been in close contact with a person who has COVID-19? Do you feel unwell with any symptoms consistent with COVID-19? For example, have you had a cough, high temperature, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or new loss of taste or smell? Child will be screened for temperature. A visual inspection of the child for signs of infection, which could include flushed cheeks, fatigue, extreme fussiness, etc. will be made Exclusions –  Anyone diagnosed with COVID-19 or awaiting test-results should self-isolate until: It’s been 3 full days of no fever without the use of fever-reducing medication, And Other symptoms have improved, and  3. At least 10 days have passed since symptoms first appeared. The following children and staff will be excluded from care:  Sick for any reason Showing symptoms (outlined below) of COVID-19 Have been in close contact with someone with COVID-19 in the last 14 days A cough, fever, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, chills, repeated shakingwith chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or new loss of taste or smell Fever (temperature higher than 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit) Severe sore throat that lasts more than 48 hours, especially with a fever A significant rash, particularly when other symptoms are presentLarge amounts of discolored nasal discharge Severe ear pain Uncontrolled cough Diarrhea Severe headache, especially with a fever Healthy children and staff with the following symptoms/conditions may attend programming: Allergy symptoms (with no fever) that cause coughing and clear runny nose maystay if they have medically diagnosed allergies and follow medical treatmentplans. Well-controlled, mild asthma At Pick Up – One person will show up for pick up.  Information, unless urgent regarding the camper’s day will be communicated via phone or through email whenever possible.  Campers will be ready to go and pick up will be swift.  Hygiene – Campers will wash hands upon arrival at camp, before and after using the bathroom, before and after eating and throughout the day as deemed necessary.  Hand sanitizer stations will be available throughout camp. Camper groups at Barlow Street Community Center will be assigned a specific bathroom for their group and will use that one exclusively. Campers at SACS will use one of 2 bathrooms that will be used exclusively by campers and staff.Food – Camp will continue to participate in the Federal Summer Lunch Program supplying a morning snack and lunch.  If you prefer your child can pack a lunch, snacks & beverage.  Each child should bring a water bottle and bottles should be cleaned every night.  Camper lunch bags will not be able to be stored in a refrigerator so be sure to include ice packs if necessary.  No food will be shared between campers and no birthday cakes or treats this summer.  Camp is PEANUT AND TREE NUT FREE.  Please keep this in mind when packing your child’s lunch.Cleaning – Our facilities have always been cleaned daily and often throughout the day and that will continue with disinfection of all common and frequently touched surfaces on a regular schedule throughout the day and as deemed necessary.  Equipment & Supplies – Toys and sports equipment will be cleaned after each round of play and before another group uses them.  We will not use sensory tables, soft stuffed animals or dress up clothes.  Each camper will have their own art supplies in a Ziploc bag with their name on it.  They will be the only ones that use them.Backpacks & Stuff – Camper’s backpacks and belongings will be stored in each small group’s classroom in each camper’s specific and labeled spot. Each camper should bring swim suit, towel, sunscreen & water bottle. Please do not send more “stuff” than fits in your camper’s back pack.  Please consider a swim shirt in place of sunscreen for your camper.  If you’d rather not do that, please send a spray sunscreen.  We will supervise sunscreen application showing kids how to apply to their face, arms and neck etc but a spray would work best for us to apply to back.Sick Kids or Family – If a child, staff person or parent tests positive for COVID 19 then they will not be allowed at camp until they no longer test positive and have had no fever for 72 hours without fever reducing medications or for a minimum of 2 weeks, whichever is longer.  If there is a confirmed case of COVID 19 at camp families will be notified and the smaller group will close down and await guidance from the Department of Health and their tracing team before resuming.  New this year – each day at drop off families will need to provide the phone number of an adult that can pick up their child if the child becomes ill at camp.  This pick up needs to happen within 15 minutes – so parents working out of town will want to consider this before the start of camp.  A sick camper will be isolated immediately upon symptoms and a staffer will remain with them until they are picked up.Travelers- Campers from other states will be eligible to attend camp after they have been quarantined after entering VT for 14 days.  If a camper or staff member leaves the state for a vacation (unless they travel to the newly defined counties in neighboring states -so defined by the State of Vermont - ) they will not be able to return to camp until they have been quarantined in VT for 14 days or they can quarantine for 7 days and then be tested for COVID19, if the test is negative they can attend camp.Staff – We’re happy to announce that Ben Lovelette has been named as Day Camp Director.  Ben is a 2020 Graduate of UVM and will be taking a position at St. Albans City School as a Math & Social Studies teacher.  Ben was on staff last year as a counselor.  He’s been working on adjustments to camp in light of COVID19 from the start with our Program Manager Andrew Gratton and myself.  All staff will be screened in the same manner as campers each morning and will adhere to the same protocol listed above for a sick camper. We’re also delighted that we have a high number of returning staff from last year with 7 new staffers joining us.  Even in light of everything going on – we plan to have a great summer!Visiting the Pool – We’re happy that St. Albans City Pool will be open for Day Campers this summer.  The CDC reports that a clean, properly chlorinated pool does not support COVID19 virus.  At this time, it looks like campers will be able to visit the pool daily but for shorter periods of time than in previous years to keep the group size within the state guidelines.  We will work with the kids to help them maintain social distancing while in the pool and on the deck.  No masks will be worn in the pool, masks will be required on the pool deck if campers are not 6 feet apart.Swim Lessons & Swim Team – We will transport kids to and from swim lessons and swim team.  Campers will use the bathroom and change into their swim suit at camp arriving at the pool ready to go.  They will leave the pool in their swim suit and change back into their clothes at camp.  We reserve the right to make changes at any time – We have spent a great deal of time considering what changes need to happen to make our camp a fun and safe place to be.  We are prepared to adapt, alter or cancel camp at any time if state recommendations change.  As health guidelines change and risk decreases or increases if we need to make changes we will not hesitate to do so.  Our primary goal is health and safety.  We already know a lot about fun and we’re determined to have some while keeping everyone safe.  That said, the precautions we’re taking will undoubtedly add a few minutes to your drop off time in the morning.  Please bear with us.  We’ll be in contact with families throughout the summer and please contact us anytime you have a question, concern or suggestion at 802-524-1500 x *266 or at k.viens@stalbansvt.comConclusion – (for now) This is by no means an exhaustive list. We have been meeting for weeks discussing activities, deciding what equipment we need to ad, organizing extensive trainings for staff and thinking outside the box.   As a staff we will continue to meet and make adjustments daily. The Vermont Department of Health has issued revised Guidance for Childcare Programs, Summer Programs & Afterschool Programs in light of COVID 19.  We will strictly adhere to those requirements or exceed them.  We value the trust and confidence you place in us to provide a safe environment for your family and we’ll continue to be in touch. Contact the office at 524-1500 x *266, x *268 or the Recreation Cell phone at 309-1810THEMES FOR EACH WEEK WILL BE ADDED SOON-Week 1 - June 1st - June 5thWeek 2 - June 8th- June 12thWeek 3 - June 15th-June 19th Week 4 - June 22nd - 26th:  Week 5 - June 29th - July 3rd Week 6 - July 6th - 10thWeek 7 - July 13th - 17thWeek 8 - July 20th - 24thWeek 9 - July 27th - 31stWeek 10 - August 3rd - 7thWeek 11 - August 10th - 14thWeek 12 - August 17th - 21stPayment options:Register for all weeks you want this summer and pay only for one week at the time of the registration. Keep in mind that once the weeks are registered for, that space is held for your child. If you need to cancel - there is a cancellation fee. If you simply need to transfer to another week (and there is still room in that week) there is no transfer fee. The first week must be paid for as a deposit. Autopay: You can register for whichever weeks you like and the payment will automatically be charged to your debit or credit card on the Sunday before the week you've registered for. Payments are deducted on a weekly basis once camp starts until all weeks are paid for. The system is front loaded, so if you register for weeks 1, 2, 5 & 6, payments will be deducted weeks 1, 2, 3, & 4. Weeks 5 & 6 will be paid for in advance. No deposit required. Need to contact camp during camp hours?  Call the Day Camp cell at 802-393-0331Other Questions? Contact the rec cell at 802-309-1810

For people who don't want to run or would like to bring your kids, walking is encouraged as well. Each Friday we will post on our Facebook page asking who ran/ walked and what their time was or for a picture if you chose not to time yourself. Participants will be asked to post a picture of themselves on the trail, before or after. Comment that picture on our Facebook post for your chance to win a local gift card!!!Right now there is only 1 course set up. That course is marked by white field paint on the ground. There is a start/ finish line in the back fields and there are arrows sending your out and bringing your back. The course with the white arrows is 1.8 miles (3k). We are working on clearing all the single track area to set up another course. Summary- 1 course set up marked by white field paint arrows on the ground (1.8 miles)- Course has the same start and finish line. - White arrow course is only on the wider cross country trails - Run the course any day that week and post a picture on our Facebook status Friday for your chance to win a local gift card. - If you don't want to run, bring your kids for a nice walk- No registration requiredPhoto Credit: Stina Booth
 
7:00 AM - 7:30 AM    Day Camp - For kids K-8th Grade -Summer 2020 - Summer Day Camp - Early Drop Off
St. Albans Recreation Day Camp Opening – Summer 2020 Information St.  Albans Recreation department is pleased to announce that we’ll be offering a fun and safe camp option for families this summer.  There will be changes made to camp just as there have been to day to day life everywhere.  Changes made to camp are in direct correlation with the recommendations issued by the State of Vermont Department of Health.  Our Camp will meet or exceed those expectations.  Our goal is to provide a fun experience for your child in a safe and healthy environment.  Here is some important information for families. Dates- June 1, 2020 – August 21, 2020 We’re starting camp 3 weeks early to help out families returning to work while school is out going from 9 weeks to 12 weeks available. June 1 through June 19 will be held at Barlow Street Community Center, June 22 through August 21 will be divided between St. Albans City School and Barlow Street Community Center. Families will be notified by 6/19/2020 which location their child will be at.Hours – 7:30am-4:30pm  Locations- Camp will be held in separate locations to allow the space required for healthy distancing.  Barlow Street Community Center & St. Albans City School.Registration – St. Albans Recreation Department prides itself in being responsive to the needs of our families.  In the past we allowed families to pick and choose days they’d like to attend throughout the summer and we allow online registration right up until the moment you pull into the parking lot.  We also welcome part time campers. We work with families to make last minute changes and issue credits.  Most camps do not allow this flexibility. One change we have to make this summer is with registration. Campers must be registered by 12noon on the Thursday before the week your child is going to attend camp.  This change applies to part time campers and families that register week by week.  Those who have already registered for the summer do not need to make any changes.  We need this lead time to assemble smaller groups and to notify families which group and location their child should report to.Smaller Groups – Campers will be divided into smaller groups this summer.  Campers and staff will stay with the same group from start to finish to the degree this is possible.  Siblings will be assigned to the same group (unless parents request otherwise) The State of Vermont has authorized groups of 25 people including staff.  We will remain at or below that group size.Face Masks – Campers and counselors will wear masks as in all situations as recommended by CDC. Disposable masks will be available when needed, but families should provide 2 clean masks each day for their child.  Masks should be washed daily.  When children are outside and apart from one another, they will not need to wear their mask.  When they are indoors, or in closer contact with others, they will need to wear their mask.Distancing – Each group will adhere to social distancing standards of 6 feet to the extent possible. Face masks are not a replacement for distancing.  While we used to have 6 campers at a table working on an art or science project – this summer we’ll have 2 kids working at opposite ends of the tables.  At lunch, spots will be painted on the grass to remind kids what 6 feet is.Outside – It’s always been a goal of our camp to be outside as much as possible.  This summer more than ever we plan to eat and play outdoors by incorporating the use of tents.  In the past we’ve done art projects, presentations, movies inside – this summer we’ll be outside with those activities as much as possible.Drop Off & Pick Ups – If possible, families should have the same person do drop off and pick up each day – again to limit contacts.  Those doing drop off and pick ups must wear masks. Only one person at drop off and pick up.  If possible, older adults 65+ should not be tasked with drop off or pick up. You will be notified in advance of which group your camper is in and the location will be readily marked so you’ll know where to head. Pick up for kids based out of Barlow Street Community Center will be at the field across from St. Albans City Pool.  Pick up for campers based out of SACS will be at the school on the west side of the building.  No one who is ill, has symptoms of COVID 19 or is self-quarantining due to close contact with a COVID 19 positive person can do drop off or pick up.  Parents will respect distancing with staff and other campers during all interactions.At Drop Off – Campers will report directly to the head counselor of their small group – Not the one point drop-off we’ve used in the past.  At check in – every camper will be screened for temperature, the adult dropping off the camper will be asked the same screening questions everyday – even if the camper has attended each day of camp.  If a camper has a temperature of 100.4 F or greater they will not be allowed at camp.  Health Screening  A Daily Health Check will be conducted for each child attending camp upon arrival each day.These questions will be asked every day: Have you been in close contact with a person who has COVID-19? Do you feel unwell with any symptoms consistent with COVID-19? For example, have you had a cough, high temperature, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or new loss of taste or smell? Child will be screened for temperature. A visual inspection of the child for signs of infection, which could include flushed cheeks, fatigue, extreme fussiness, etc. will be made Exclusions –  Anyone diagnosed with COVID-19 or awaiting test-results should self-isolate until: It’s been 3 full days of no fever without the use of fever-reducing medication, And Other symptoms have improved, and  3. At least 10 days have passed since symptoms first appeared. The following children and staff will be excluded from care:  Sick for any reason Showing symptoms (outlined below) of COVID-19 Have been in close contact with someone with COVID-19 in the last 14 days A cough, fever, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, chills, repeated shakingwith chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or new loss of taste or smell Fever (temperature higher than 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit) Severe sore throat that lasts more than 48 hours, especially with a fever A significant rash, particularly when other symptoms are presentLarge amounts of discolored nasal discharge Severe ear pain Uncontrolled cough Diarrhea Severe headache, especially with a fever Healthy children and staff with the following symptoms/conditions may attend programming: Allergy symptoms (with no fever) that cause coughing and clear runny nose maystay if they have medically diagnosed allergies and follow medical treatmentplans. Well-controlled, mild asthma At Pick Up – One person will show up for pick up.  Information, unless urgent regarding the camper’s day will be communicated via phone or through email whenever possible.  Campers will be ready to go and pick up will be swift.  Hygiene – Campers will wash hands upon arrival at camp, before and after using the bathroom, before and after eating and throughout the day as deemed necessary.  Hand sanitizer stations will be available throughout camp. Camper groups at Barlow Street Community Center will be assigned a specific bathroom for their group and will use that one exclusively. Campers at SACS will use one of 2 bathrooms that will be used exclusively by campers and staff.Food – Camp will continue to participate in the Federal Summer Lunch Program supplying a morning snack and lunch.  If you prefer your child can pack a lunch, snacks & beverage.  Each child should bring a water bottle and bottles should be cleaned every night.  Camper lunch bags will not be able to be stored in a refrigerator so be sure to include ice packs if necessary.  No food will be shared between campers and no birthday cakes or treats this summer.  Camp is PEANUT AND TREE NUT FREE.  Please keep this in mind when packing your child’s lunch.Cleaning – Our facilities have always been cleaned daily and often throughout the day and that will continue with disinfection of all common and frequently touched surfaces on a regular schedule throughout the day and as deemed necessary.  Equipment & Supplies – Toys and sports equipment will be cleaned after each round of play and before another group uses them.  We will not use sensory tables, soft stuffed animals or dress up clothes.  Each camper will have their own art supplies in a Ziploc bag with their name on it.  They will be the only ones that use them.Backpacks & Stuff – Camper’s backpacks and belongings will be stored in each small group’s classroom in each camper’s specific and labeled spot. Each camper should bring swim suit, towel, sunscreen & water bottle. Please do not send more “stuff” than fits in your camper’s back pack.  Please consider a swim shirt in place of sunscreen for your camper.  If you’d rather not do that, please send a spray sunscreen.  We will supervise sunscreen application showing kids how to apply to their face, arms and neck etc but a spray would work best for us to apply to back.Sick Kids or Family – If a child, staff person or parent tests positive for COVID 19 then they will not be allowed at camp until they no longer test positive and have had no fever for 72 hours without fever reducing medications or for a minimum of 2 weeks, whichever is longer.  If there is a confirmed case of COVID 19 at camp families will be notified and the smaller group will close down and await guidance from the Department of Health and their tracing team before resuming.  New this year – each day at drop off families will need to provide the phone number of an adult that can pick up their child if the child becomes ill at camp.  This pick up needs to happen within 15 minutes – so parents working out of town will want to consider this before the start of camp.  A sick camper will be isolated immediately upon symptoms and a staffer will remain with them until they are picked up.Travelers- Campers from other states will be eligible to attend camp after they have been quarantined after entering VT for 14 days.  If a camper or staff member leaves the state for a vacation (unless they travel to the newly defined counties in neighboring states -so defined by the State of Vermont - ) they will not be able to return to camp until they have been quarantined in VT for 14 days or they can quarantine for 7 days and then be tested for COVID19, if the test is negative they can attend camp.Staff – We’re happy to announce that Ben Lovelette has been named as Day Camp Director.  Ben is a 2020 Graduate of UVM and will be taking a position at St. Albans City School as a Math & Social Studies teacher.  Ben was on staff last year as a counselor.  He’s been working on adjustments to camp in light of COVID19 from the start with our Program Manager Andrew Gratton and myself.  All staff will be screened in the same manner as campers each morning and will adhere to the same protocol listed above for a sick camper. We’re also delighted that we have a high number of returning staff from last year with 7 new staffers joining us.  Even in light of everything going on – we plan to have a great summer!Visiting the Pool – We’re happy that St. Albans City Pool will be open for Day Campers this summer.  The CDC reports that a clean, properly chlorinated pool does not support COVID19 virus.  At this time, it looks like campers will be able to visit the pool daily but for shorter periods of time than in previous years to keep the group size within the state guidelines.  We will work with the kids to help them maintain social distancing while in the pool and on the deck.  No masks will be worn in the pool, masks will be required on the pool deck if campers are not 6 feet apart.Swim Lessons & Swim Team – We will transport kids to and from swim lessons and swim team.  Campers will use the bathroom and change into their swim suit at camp arriving at the pool ready to go.  They will leave the pool in their swim suit and change back into their clothes at camp.  We reserve the right to make changes at any time – We have spent a great deal of time considering what changes need to happen to make our camp a fun and safe place to be.  We are prepared to adapt, alter or cancel camp at any time if state recommendations change.  As health guidelines change and risk decreases or increases if we need to make changes we will not hesitate to do so.  Our primary goal is health and safety.  We already know a lot about fun and we’re determined to have some while keeping everyone safe.  That said, the precautions we’re taking will undoubtedly add a few minutes to your drop off time in the morning.  Please bear with us.  We’ll be in contact with families throughout the summer and please contact us anytime you have a question, concern or suggestion at 802-524-1500 x *266 or at k.viens@stalbansvt.comConclusion – (for now) This is by no means an exhaustive list. We have been meeting for weeks discussing activities, deciding what equipment we need to ad, organizing extensive trainings for staff and thinking outside the box.   As a staff we will continue to meet and make adjustments daily. The Vermont Department of Health has issued revised Guidance for Childcare Programs, Summer Programs & Afterschool Programs in light of COVID 19.  We will strictly adhere to those requirements or exceed them.  We value the trust and confidence you place in us to provide a safe environment for your family and we’ll continue to be in touch. Contact the office at 524-1500 x *266, x *268 or the Recreation Cell phone at 309-1810THEMES FOR EACH WEEK WILL BE ADDED SOON-Week 1 - June 1st - June 5thWeek 2 - June 8th- June 12thWeek 3 - June 15th-June 19th Week 4 - June 22nd - 26th:  Week 5 - June 29th - July 3rd Week 6 - July 6th - 10thWeek 7 - July 13th - 17thWeek 8 - July 20th - 24thWeek 9 - July 27th - 31stWeek 10 - August 3rd - 7thWeek 11 - August 10th - 14thWeek 12 - August 17th - 21stPayment options:Register for all weeks you want this summer and pay only for one week at the time of the registration.

7:30 AM - 4:30 PM    Day Camp - For kids K-8th Grade -Summer 2020 - Summer Day Camp 2020
St. Albans Recreation Day Camp Opening – Summer 2020 Information St.  Albans Recreation department is pleased to announce that we’ll be offering a fun and safe camp option for families this summer.  There will be changes made to camp just as there have been to day to day life everywhere.  Changes made to camp are in direct correlation with the recommendations issued by the State of Vermont Department of Health.  Our Camp will meet or exceed those expectations.  Our goal is to provide a fun experience for your child in a safe and healthy environment.  Here is some important information for families. Dates- June 1, 2020 – August 21, 2020 We’re starting camp 3 weeks early to help out families returning to work while school is out going from 9 weeks to 12 weeks available. June 1 through June 19 will be held at Barlow Street Community Center, June 22 through August 21 will be divided between St. Albans City School and Barlow Street Community Center. Families will be notified by 6/19/2020 which location their child will be at.Hours – 7:30am-4:30pm  Locations- Camp will be held in separate locations to allow the space required for healthy distancing.  Barlow Street Community Center & St. Albans City School.Registration – St. Albans Recreation Department prides itself in being responsive to the needs of our families.  In the past we allowed families to pick and choose days they’d like to attend throughout the summer and we allow online registration right up until the moment you pull into the parking lot.  We also welcome part time campers. We work with families to make last minute changes and issue credits.  Most camps do not allow this flexibility. One change we have to make this summer is with registration. Campers must be registered by 12noon on the Thursday before the week your child is going to attend camp.  This change applies to part time campers and families that register week by week.  Those who have already registered for the summer do not need to make any changes.  We need this lead time to assemble smaller groups and to notify families which group and location their child should report to.Smaller Groups – Campers will be divided into smaller groups this summer.  Campers and staff will stay with the same group from start to finish to the degree this is possible.  Siblings will be assigned to the same group (unless parents request otherwise) The State of Vermont has authorized groups of 25 people including staff.  We will remain at or below that group size.Face Masks – Campers and counselors will wear masks as in all situations as recommended by CDC. Disposable masks will be available when needed, but families should provide 2 clean masks each day for their child.  Masks should be washed daily.  When children are outside and apart from one another, they will not need to wear their mask.  When they are indoors, or in closer contact with others, they will need to wear their mask.Distancing – Each group will adhere to social distancing standards of 6 feet to the extent possible. Face masks are not a replacement for distancing.  While we used to have 6 campers at a table working on an art or science project – this summer we’ll have 2 kids working at opposite ends of the tables.  At lunch, spots will be painted on the grass to remind kids what 6 feet is.Outside – It’s always been a goal of our camp to be outside as much as possible.  This summer more than ever we plan to eat and play outdoors by incorporating the use of tents.  In the past we’ve done art projects, presentations, movies inside – this summer we’ll be outside with those activities as much as possible.Drop Off & Pick Ups – If possible, families should have the same person do drop off and pick up each day – again to limit contacts.  Those doing drop off and pick ups must wear masks. Only one person at drop off and pick up.  If possible, older adults 65+ should not be tasked with drop off or pick up. You will be notified in advance of which group your camper is in and the location will be readily marked so you’ll know where to head. Pick up for kids based out of Barlow Street Community Center will be at the field across from St. Albans City Pool.  Pick up for campers based out of SACS will be at the school on the west side of the building.  No one who is ill, has symptoms of COVID 19 or is self-quarantining due to close contact with a COVID 19 positive person can do drop off or pick up.  Parents will respect distancing with staff and other campers during all interactions.At Drop Off – Campers will report directly to the head counselor of their small group – Not the one point drop-off we’ve used in the past.  At check in – every camper will be screened for temperature, the adult dropping off the camper will be asked the same screening questions everyday – even if the camper has attended each day of camp.  If a camper has a temperature of 100.4 F or greater they will not be allowed at camp.  Health Screening  A Daily Health Check will be conducted for each child attending camp upon arrival each day.These questions will be asked every day: Have you been in close contact with a person who has COVID-19? Do you feel unwell with any symptoms consistent with COVID-19? For example, have you had a cough, high temperature, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or new loss of taste or smell? Child will be screened for temperature. A visual inspection of the child for signs of infection, which could include flushed cheeks, fatigue, extreme fussiness, etc. will be made Exclusions –  Anyone diagnosed with COVID-19 or awaiting test-results should self-isolate until: It’s been 3 full days of no fever without the use of fever-reducing medication, And Other symptoms have improved, and  3. At least 10 days have passed since symptoms first appeared. The following children and staff will be excluded from care:  Sick for any reason Showing symptoms (outlined below) of COVID-19 Have been in close contact with someone with COVID-19 in the last 14 days A cough, fever, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, chills, repeated shakingwith chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or new loss of taste or smell Fever (temperature higher than 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit) Severe sore throat that lasts more than 48 hours, especially with a fever A significant rash, particularly when other symptoms are presentLarge amounts of discolored nasal discharge Severe ear pain Uncontrolled cough Diarrhea Severe headache, especially with a fever Healthy children and staff with the following symptoms/conditions may attend programming: Allergy symptoms (with no fever) that cause coughing and clear runny nose maystay if they have medically diagnosed allergies and follow medical treatmentplans. Well-controlled, mild asthma At Pick Up – One person will show up for pick up.  Information, unless urgent regarding the camper’s day will be communicated via phone or through email whenever possible.  Campers will be ready to go and pick up will be swift.  Hygiene – Campers will wash hands upon arrival at camp, before and after using the bathroom, before and after eating and throughout the day as deemed necessary.  Hand sanitizer stations will be available throughout camp. Camper groups at Barlow Street Community Center will be assigned a specific bathroom for their group and will use that one exclusively. Campers at SACS will use one of 2 bathrooms that will be used exclusively by campers and staff.Food – Camp will continue to participate in the Federal Summer Lunch Program supplying a morning snack and lunch.  If you prefer your child can pack a lunch, snacks & beverage.  Each child should bring a water bottle and bottles should be cleaned every night.  Camper lunch bags will not be able to be stored in a refrigerator so be sure to include ice packs if necessary.  No food will be shared between campers and no birthday cakes or treats this summer.  Camp is PEANUT AND TREE NUT FREE.  Please keep this in mind when packing your child’s lunch.Cleaning – Our facilities have always been cleaned daily and often throughout the day and that will continue with disinfection of all common and frequently touched surfaces on a regular schedule throughout the day and as deemed necessary.  Equipment & Supplies – Toys and sports equipment will be cleaned after each round of play and before another group uses them.  We will not use sensory tables, soft stuffed animals or dress up clothes.  Each camper will have their own art supplies in a Ziploc bag with their name on it.  They will be the only ones that use them.Backpacks & Stuff – Camper’s backpacks and belongings will be stored in each small group’s classroom in each camper’s specific and labeled spot. Each camper should bring swim suit, towel, sunscreen & water bottle. Please do not send more “stuff” than fits in your camper’s back pack.  Please consider a swim shirt in place of sunscreen for your camper.  If you’d rather not do that, please send a spray sunscreen.  We will supervise sunscreen application showing kids how to apply to their face, arms and neck etc but a spray would work best for us to apply to back.Sick Kids or Family – If a child, staff person or parent tests positive for COVID 19 then they will not be allowed at camp until they no longer test positive and have had no fever for 72 hours without fever reducing medications or for a minimum of 2 weeks, whichever is longer.  If there is a confirmed case of COVID 19 at camp families will be notified and the smaller group will close down and await guidance from the Department of Health and their tracing team before resuming.  New this year – each day at drop off families will need to provide the phone number of an adult that can pick up their child if the child becomes ill at camp.  This pick up needs to happen within 15 minutes – so parents working out of town will want to consider this before the start of camp.  A sick camper will be isolated immediately upon symptoms and a staffer will remain with them until they are picked up.Travelers- Campers from other states will be eligible to attend camp after they have been quarantined after entering VT for 14 days.  If a camper or staff member leaves the state for a vacation (unless they travel to the newly defined counties in neighboring states -so defined by the State of Vermont - ) they will not be able to return to camp until they have been quarantined in VT for 14 days or they can quarantine for 7 days and then be tested for COVID19, if the test is negative they can attend camp.Staff – We’re happy to announce that Ben Lovelette has been named as Day Camp Director.  Ben is a 2020 Graduate of UVM and will be taking a position at St. Albans City School as a Math & Social Studies teacher.  Ben was on staff last year as a counselor.  He’s been working on adjustments to camp in light of COVID19 from the start with our Program Manager Andrew Gratton and myself.  All staff will be screened in the same manner as campers each morning and will adhere to the same protocol listed above for a sick camper. We’re also delighted that we have a high number of returning staff from last year with 7 new staffers joining us.  Even in light of everything going on – we plan to have a great summer!Visiting the Pool – We’re happy that St. Albans City Pool will be open for Day Campers this summer.  The CDC reports that a clean, properly chlorinated pool does not support COVID19 virus.  At this time, it looks like campers will be able to visit the pool daily but for shorter periods of time than in previous years to keep the group size within the state guidelines.  We will work with the kids to help them maintain social distancing while in the pool and on the deck.  No masks will be worn in the pool, masks will be required on the pool deck if campers are not 6 feet apart.Swim Lessons & Swim Team – We will transport kids to and from swim lessons and swim team.  Campers will use the bathroom and change into their swim suit at camp arriving at the pool ready to go.  They will leave the pool in their swim suit and change back into their clothes at camp.  We reserve the right to make changes at any time – We have spent a great deal of time considering what changes need to happen to make our camp a fun and safe place to be.  We are prepared to adapt, alter or cancel camp at any time if state recommendations change.  As health guidelines change and risk decreases or increases if we need to make changes we will not hesitate to do so.  Our primary goal is health and safety.  We already know a lot about fun and we’re determined to have some while keeping everyone safe.  That said, the precautions we’re taking will undoubtedly add a few minutes to your drop off time in the morning.  Please bear with us.  We’ll be in contact with families throughout the summer and please contact us anytime you have a question, concern or suggestion at 802-524-1500 x *266 or at k.viens@stalbansvt.comConclusion – (for now) This is by no means an exhaustive list.

4:30 PM - 5:00 PM    Day Camp - For kids K-8th Grade -Summer 2020 - Summer Day Camp - Late Pick Up
St. Albans Recreation Day Camp Opening – Summer 2020 Information St.  Albans Recreation department is pleased to announce that we’ll be offering a fun and safe camp option for families this summer.  There will be changes made to camp just as there have been to day to day life everywhere.  Changes made to camp are in direct correlation with the recommendations issued by the State of Vermont Department of Health.  Our Camp will meet or exceed those expectations.  Our goal is to provide a fun experience for your child in a safe and healthy environment.  Here is some important information for families. Dates- June 1, 2020 – August 21, 2020 We’re starting camp 3 weeks early to help out families returning to work while school is out going from 9 weeks to 12 weeks available. June 1 through June 19 will be held at Barlow Street Community Center, June 22 through August 21 will be divided between St. Albans City School and Barlow Street Community Center. Families will be notified by 6/19/2020 which location their child will be at.Hours – 7:30am-4:30pm  Locations- Camp will be held in separate locations to allow the space required for healthy distancing.  Barlow Street Community Center & St. Albans City School.Registration – St. Albans Recreation Department prides itself in being responsive to the needs of our families.  In the past we allowed families to pick and choose days they’d like to attend throughout the summer and we allow online registration right up until the moment you pull into the parking lot.  We also welcome part time campers. We work with families to make last minute changes and issue credits.  Most camps do not allow this flexibility. One change we have to make this summer is with registration. Campers must be registered by 12noon on the Thursday before the week your child is going to attend camp.  This change applies to part time campers and families that register week by week.  Those who have already registered for the summer do not need to make any changes.  We need this lead time to assemble smaller groups and to notify families which group and location their child should report to.Smaller Groups – Campers will be divided into smaller groups this summer.  Campers and staff will stay with the same group from start to finish to the degree this is possible.  Siblings will be assigned to the same group (unless parents request otherwise) The State of Vermont has authorized groups of 25 people including staff.  We will remain at or below that group size.Face Masks – Campers and counselors will wear masks as in all situations as recommended by CDC. Disposable masks will be available when needed, but families should provide 2 clean masks each day for their child.  Masks should be washed daily.  When children are outside and apart from one another, they will not need to wear their mask.  When they are indoors, or in closer contact with others, they will need to wear their mask.Distancing – Each group will adhere to social distancing standards of 6 feet to the extent possible. Face masks are not a replacement for distancing.  While we used to have 6 campers at a table working on an art or science project – this summer we’ll have 2 kids working at opposite ends of the tables.  At lunch, spots will be painted on the grass to remind kids what 6 feet is.Outside – It’s always been a goal of our camp to be outside as much as possible.  This summer more than ever we plan to eat and play outdoors by incorporating the use of tents.  In the past we’ve done art projects, presentations, movies inside – this summer we’ll be outside with those activities as much as possible.Drop Off & Pick Ups – If possible, families should have the same person do drop off and pick up each day – again to limit contacts.  Those doing drop off and pick ups must wear masks. Only one person at drop off and pick up.  If possible, older adults 65+ should not be tasked with drop off or pick up. You will be notified in advance of which group your camper is in and the location will be readily marked so you’ll know where to head. Pick up for kids based out of Barlow Street Community Center will be at the field across from St. Albans City Pool.  Pick up for campers based out of SACS will be at the school on the west side of the building.  No one who is ill, has symptoms of COVID 19 or is self-quarantining due to close contact with a COVID 19 positive person can do drop off or pick up.  Parents will respect distancing with staff and other campers during all interactions.At Drop Off – Campers will report directly to the head counselor of their small group – Not the one point drop-off we’ve used in the past.  At check in – every camper will be screened for temperature, the adult dropping off the camper will be asked the same screening questions everyday – even if the camper has attended each day of camp.  If a camper has a temperature of 100.4 F or greater they will not be allowed at camp.  Health Screening  A Daily Health Check will be conducted for each child attending camp upon arrival each day.These questions will be asked every day: Have you been in close contact with a person who has COVID-19? Do you feel unwell with any symptoms consistent with COVID-19? For example, have you had a cough, high temperature, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or new loss of taste or smell? Child will be screened for temperature. A visual inspection of the child for signs of infection, which could include flushed cheeks, fatigue, extreme fussiness, etc. will be made Exclusions –  Anyone diagnosed with COVID-19 or awaiting test-results should self-isolate until: It’s been 3 full days of no fever without the use of fever-reducing medication, And Other symptoms have improved, and  3. At least 10 days have passed since symptoms first appeared. The following children and staff will be excluded from care:  Sick for any reason Showing symptoms (outlined below) of COVID-19 Have been in close contact with someone with COVID-19 in the last 14 days A cough, fever, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, chills, repeated shakingwith chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or new loss of taste or smell Fever (temperature higher than 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit) Severe sore throat that lasts more than 48 hours, especially with a fever A significant rash, particularly when other symptoms are presentLarge amounts of discolored nasal discharge Severe ear pain Uncontrolled cough Diarrhea Severe headache, especially with a fever Healthy children and staff with the following symptoms/conditions may attend programming: Allergy symptoms (with no fever) that cause coughing and clear runny nose maystay if they have medically diagnosed allergies and follow medical treatmentplans. Well-controlled, mild asthma At Pick Up – One person will show up for pick up.  Information, unless urgent regarding the camper’s day will be communicated via phone or through email whenever possible.  Campers will be ready to go and pick up will be swift.  Hygiene – Campers will wash hands upon arrival at camp, before and after using the bathroom, before and after eating and throughout the day as deemed necessary.  Hand sanitizer stations will be available throughout camp. Camper groups at Barlow Street Community Center will be assigned a specific bathroom for their group and will use that one exclusively. Campers at SACS will use one of 2 bathrooms that will be used exclusively by campers and staff.Food – Camp will continue to participate in the Federal Summer Lunch Program supplying a morning snack and lunch.  If you prefer your child can pack a lunch, snacks & beverage.  Each child should bring a water bottle and bottles should be cleaned every night.  Camper lunch bags will not be able to be stored in a refrigerator so be sure to include ice packs if necessary.  No food will be shared between campers and no birthday cakes or treats this summer.  Camp is PEANUT AND TREE NUT FREE.  Please keep this in mind when packing your child’s lunch.Cleaning – Our facilities have always been cleaned daily and often throughout the day and that will continue with disinfection of all common and frequently touched surfaces on a regular schedule throughout the day and as deemed necessary.  Equipment & Supplies – Toys and sports equipment will be cleaned after each round of play and before another group uses them.  We will not use sensory tables, soft stuffed animals or dress up clothes.  Each camper will have their own art supplies in a Ziploc bag with their name on it.  They will be the only ones that use them.Backpacks & Stuff – Camper’s backpacks and belongings will be stored in each small group’s classroom in each camper’s specific and labeled spot. Each camper should bring swim suit, towel, sunscreen & water bottle. Please do not send more “stuff” than fits in your camper’s back pack.  Please consider a swim shirt in place of sunscreen for your camper.  If you’d rather not do that, please send a spray sunscreen.  We will supervise sunscreen application showing kids how to apply to their face, arms and neck etc but a spray would work best for us to apply to back.Sick Kids or Family – If a child, staff person or parent tests positive for COVID 19 then they will not be allowed at camp until they no longer test positive and have had no fever for 72 hours without fever reducing medications or for a minimum of 2 weeks, whichever is longer.  If there is a confirmed case of COVID 19 at camp families will be notified and the smaller group will close down and await guidance from the Department of Health and their tracing team before resuming.  New this year – each day at drop off families will need to provide the phone number of an adult that can pick up their child if the child becomes ill at camp.  This pick up needs to happen within 15 minutes – so parents working out of town will want to consider this before the start of camp.  A sick camper will be isolated immediately upon symptoms and a staffer will remain with them until they are picked up.Travelers- Campers from other states will be eligible to attend camp after they have been quarantined after entering VT for 14 days.  If a camper or staff member leaves the state for a vacation (unless they travel to the newly defined counties in neighboring states -so defined by the State of Vermont - ) they will not be able to return to camp until they have been quarantined in VT for 14 days or they can quarantine for 7 days and then be tested for COVID19, if the test is negative they can attend camp.Staff – We’re happy to announce that Ben Lovelette has been named as Day Camp Director.  Ben is a 2020 Graduate of UVM and will be taking a position at St. Albans City School as a Math & Social Studies teacher.  Ben was on staff last year as a counselor.  He’s been working on adjustments to camp in light of COVID19 from the start with our Program Manager Andrew Gratton and myself.  All staff will be screened in the same manner as campers each morning and will adhere to the same protocol listed above for a sick camper. We’re also delighted that we have a high number of returning staff from last year with 7 new staffers joining us.  Even in light of everything going on – we plan to have a great summer!Visiting the Pool – We’re happy that St. Albans City Pool will be open for Day Campers this summer.  The CDC reports that a clean, properly chlorinated pool does not support COVID19 virus.  At this time, it looks like campers will be able to visit the pool daily but for shorter periods of time than in previous years to keep the group size within the state guidelines.  We will work with the kids to help them maintain social distancing while in the pool and on the deck.  No masks will be worn in the pool, masks will be required on the pool deck if campers are not 6 feet apart.Swim Lessons & Swim Team – We will transport kids to and from swim lessons and swim team.  Campers will use the bathroom and change into their swim suit at camp arriving at the pool ready to go.  They will leave the pool in their swim suit and change back into their clothes at camp.  We reserve the right to make changes at any time – We have spent a great deal of time considering what changes need to happen to make our camp a fun and safe place to be.  We are prepared to adapt, alter or cancel camp at any time if state recommendations change.  As health guidelines change and risk decreases or increases if we need to make changes we will not hesitate to do so.  Our primary goal is health and safety.  We already know a lot about fun and we’re determined to have some while keeping everyone safe.  That said, the precautions we’re taking will undoubtedly add a few minutes to your drop off time in the morning.  Please bear with us.  We’ll be in contact with families throughout the summer and please contact us anytime you have a question, concern or suggestion at 802-524-1500 x *266 or at k.viens@stalbansvt.comConclusion – (for now) This is by no means an exhaustive list. We have been meeting for weeks discussing activities, deciding what equipment we need to ad, organizing extensive trainings for staff and thinking outside the box.   As a staff we will continue to meet and make adjustments daily. The Vermont Department of Health has issued revised Guidance for Childcare Programs, Summer Programs & Afterschool Programs in light of COVID 19.  We will strictly adhere to those requirements or exceed them.  We value the trust and confidence you place in us to provide a safe environment for your family and we’ll continue to be in touch. Contact the office at 524-1500 x *266, x *268 or the Recreation Cell phone at 309-1810THEMES FOR EACH WEEK WILL BE ADDED SOON-Week 1 - June 1st - June 5thWeek 2 - June 8th- June 12thWeek 3 - June 15th-June 19th Week 4 - June 22nd - 26th:  Week 5 - June 29th - July 3rd Week 6 - July 6th - 10thWeek 7 - July 13th - 17thWeek 8 - July 20th - 24thWeek 9 - July 27th - 31stWeek 10 - August 3rd - 7thWeek 11 - August 10th - 14thWeek 12 - August 17th - 21stPayment options:Register for all weeks you want this summer and pay only for one week at the time of the registration.

5:30 PM - 7:00 PM    Phantoms Lacrosse - Summer Lax Mini Camp
PHANTOMS SUMMER MINI CAMP 2020July 14th - August 6th Tuesdays and Thursdays for a total of 8 sessions. This will be open to both boys and girls ages 9 and up. We will warm up together before splitting into separate groups of boys and girls for specialized skill work.   During this mini camp kids will work on:- Stretching and conditioning (easing back into the action)- Skill based drills (dusting the rust on basic skills. Ground balls, throwing/ catching, cradling and dodging.- Work position based skills (Attack: feeding, fast break and shooting. Midd: grounds balls, passing, running, stick checks. Defense: positioning, long toss, stick checks, break out) - Small sided mini games- Scrimmages (intra-squad, provided there are enough kids for that age/ ability)- Having fun and staying safe. The main goal of this camp is to get kids outside and having fun playing the game they enjoy. Below is a list of the guidelines put in place by the state of Vermont in regards to Covid-19. The Recreation Department will follow all of the guidelines and put kids safety at the top of our priorities. 9.1 Sports/Organized Sports Including Youth Leagues, Adult Leagues, Practices, Games, and Tournaments (Effective 6/15) Sports involving no or low-contact (e.g., tennis) or short-duration, incidental contact (e.g., soccer, softball, baseball, lacrosse, volleyball, hockey) may initiate expanded team practice sessions that include small-sided, intra-squad scrimmages. High contact sports, or those which necessitate significant, longer-duration, close contact (e.g., wrestling, basketball, football) are not currently allowed to engage in intra-squad scrimmages or inter-squad games, but may conduct no and low contact physical conditioning and skill building drills. Keep participants in small groups. Group numbers, including players, coaches and officials, may not exceed current limits on social gatherings - currently 25 or fewer individuals. Wherever possible, the same coach(es) should remain with the same group each practice. The number of spectators should be limited as much as possible and in no case should the number of spectators exceed current limits on social gatherings. Prioritize outdoor, as opposed to indoor, activity (e.g. training sessions and matches) as much as possible. During times when players are not actively participating in practice or competition, attention should be given to maintaining social distancing by increasing space between players on the sidelines, dugouts, or benches. During competition, alter spacing of participants, officials, and coaches to achieve physical distancing to the greatest extent possible (e.g., consider moving baseball/softball umpires behind the pitcher and moving the catcher further behind the plate). All players, coaches, officials, staff, and spectators must have a cloth facial covering in their possession to be used, as necessary, when physical distancing measures are difficult to maintain. Face coverings should be worn as much as possible. Equipment, and other supplies touched by participants, must be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected regularly. Limit sharing equipment as much as possible. No spitting on the field or sideline. No sharing of water bottles. Competition between Vermont clubs (i.e., inter-squad games) is currently anticipated to be able to resume starting July 1. Games must be conducted as individual sporting events; “jamboree” or tournament-style play (one team playing multiple games vs multiple opponents in a single day/weekend) is not currently permitted. Individual players from bordering states who belong to a Vermont-based club, organization or league may participate but must follow Vermont state recreational visitation guidelines. ____________________________________________________________________

7:00 AM - 7:30 AM    Day Camp - For kids K-8th Grade -Summer 2020 - Summer Day Camp - Early Drop Off
St. Albans Recreation Day Camp Opening – Summer 2020 Information St.  Albans Recreation department is pleased to announce that we’ll be offering a fun and safe camp option for families this summer.  There will be changes made to camp just as there have been to day to day life everywhere.  Changes made to camp are in direct correlation with the recommendations issued by the State of Vermont Department of Health.  Our Camp will meet or exceed those expectations.  Our goal is to provide a fun experience for your child in a safe and healthy environment.  Here is some important information for families. Dates- June 1, 2020 – August 21, 2020 We’re starting camp 3 weeks early to help out families returning to work while school is out going from 9 weeks to 12 weeks available. June 1 through June 19 will be held at Barlow Street Community Center, June 22 through August 21 will be divided between St. Albans City School and Barlow Street Community Center. Families will be notified by 6/19/2020 which location their child will be at.Hours – 7:30am-4:30pm  Locations- Camp will be held in separate locations to allow the space required for healthy distancing.  Barlow Street Community Center & St. Albans City School.Registration – St. Albans Recreation Department prides itself in being responsive to the needs of our families.  In the past we allowed families to pick and choose days they’d like to attend throughout the summer and we allow online registration right up until the moment you pull into the parking lot.  We also welcome part time campers. We work with families to make last minute changes and issue credits.  Most camps do not allow this flexibility. One change we have to make this summer is with registration. Campers must be registered by 12noon on the Thursday before the week your child is going to attend camp.  This change applies to part time campers and families that register week by week.  Those who have already registered for the summer do not need to make any changes.  We need this lead time to assemble smaller groups and to notify families which group and location their child should report to.Smaller Groups – Campers will be divided into smaller groups this summer.  Campers and staff will stay with the same group from start to finish to the degree this is possible.  Siblings will be assigned to the same group (unless parents request otherwise) The State of Vermont has authorized groups of 25 people including staff.  We will remain at or below that group size.Face Masks – Campers and counselors will wear masks as in all situations as recommended by CDC. Disposable masks will be available when needed, but families should provide 2 clean masks each day for their child.  Masks should be washed daily.  When children are outside and apart from one another, they will not need to wear their mask.  When they are indoors, or in closer contact with others, they will need to wear their mask.Distancing – Each group will adhere to social distancing standards of 6 feet to the extent possible. Face masks are not a replacement for distancing.  While we used to have 6 campers at a table working on an art or science project – this summer we’ll have 2 kids working at opposite ends of the tables.  At lunch, spots will be painted on the grass to remind kids what 6 feet is.Outside – It’s always been a goal of our camp to be outside as much as possible.  This summer more than ever we plan to eat and play outdoors by incorporating the use of tents.  In the past we’ve done art projects, presentations, movies inside – this summer we’ll be outside with those activities as much as possible.Drop Off & Pick Ups – If possible, families should have the same person do drop off and pick up each day – again to limit contacts.  Those doing drop off and pick ups must wear masks. Only one person at drop off and pick up.  If possible, older adults 65+ should not be tasked with drop off or pick up. You will be notified in advance of which group your camper is in and the location will be readily marked so you’ll know where to head. Pick up for kids based out of Barlow Street Community Center will be at the field across from St. Albans City Pool.  Pick up for campers based out of SACS will be at the school on the west side of the building.  No one who is ill, has symptoms of COVID 19 or is self-quarantining due to close contact with a COVID 19 positive person can do drop off or pick up.  Parents will respect distancing with staff and other campers during all interactions.At Drop Off – Campers will report directly to the head counselor of their small group – Not the one point drop-off we’ve used in the past.  At check in – every camper will be screened for temperature, the adult dropping off the camper will be asked the same screening questions everyday – even if the camper has attended each day of camp.  If a camper has a temperature of 100.4 F or greater they will not be allowed at camp.  Health Screening  A Daily Health Check will be conducted for each child attending camp upon arrival each day.These questions will be asked every day: Have you been in close contact with a person who has COVID-19? Do you feel unwell with any symptoms consistent with COVID-19? For example, have you had a cough, high temperature, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or new loss of taste or smell? Child will be screened for temperature. A visual inspection of the child for signs of infection, which could include flushed cheeks, fatigue, extreme fussiness, etc. will be made Exclusions –  Anyone diagnosed with COVID-19 or awaiting test-results should self-isolate until: It’s been 3 full days of no fever without the use of fever-reducing medication, And Other symptoms have improved, and  3. At least 10 days have passed since symptoms first appeared. The following children and staff will be excluded from care:  Sick for any reason Showing symptoms (outlined below) of COVID-19 Have been in close contact with someone with COVID-19 in the last 14 days A cough, fever, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, chills, repeated shakingwith chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or new loss of taste or smell Fever (temperature higher than 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit) Severe sore throat that lasts more than 48 hours, especially with a fever A significant rash, particularly when other symptoms are presentLarge amounts of discolored nasal discharge Severe ear pain Uncontrolled cough Diarrhea Severe headache, especially with a fever Healthy children and staff with the following symptoms/conditions may attend programming: Allergy symptoms (with no fever) that cause coughing and clear runny nose maystay if they have medically diagnosed allergies and follow medical treatmentplans. Well-controlled, mild asthma At Pick Up – One person will show up for pick up.  Information, unless urgent regarding the camper’s day will be communicated via phone or through email whenever possible.  Campers will be ready to go and pick up will be swift.  Hygiene – Campers will wash hands upon arrival at camp, before and after using the bathroom, before and after eating and throughout the day as deemed necessary.  Hand sanitizer stations will be available throughout camp. Camper groups at Barlow Street Community Center will be assigned a specific bathroom for their group and will use that one exclusively. Campers at SACS will use one of 2 bathrooms that will be used exclusively by campers and staff.Food – Camp will continue to participate in the Federal Summer Lunch Program supplying a morning snack and lunch.  If you prefer your child can pack a lunch, snacks & beverage.  Each child should bring a water bottle and bottles should be cleaned every night.  Camper lunch bags will not be able to be stored in a refrigerator so be sure to include ice packs if necessary.  No food will be shared between campers and no birthday cakes or treats this summer.  Camp is PEANUT AND TREE NUT FREE.  Please keep this in mind when packing your child’s lunch.Cleaning – Our facilities have always been cleaned daily and often throughout the day and that will continue with disinfection of all common and frequently touched surfaces on a regular schedule throughout the day and as deemed necessary.  Equipment & Supplies – Toys and sports equipment will be cleaned after each round of play and before another group uses them.  We will not use sensory tables, soft stuffed animals or dress up clothes.  Each camper will have their own art supplies in a Ziploc bag with their name on it.  They will be the only ones that use them.Backpacks & Stuff – Camper’s backpacks and belongings will be stored in each small group’s classroom in each camper’s specific and labeled spot. Each camper should bring swim suit, towel, sunscreen & water bottle. Please do not send more “stuff” than fits in your camper’s back pack.  Please consider a swim shirt in place of sunscreen for your camper.  If you’d rather not do that, please send a spray sunscreen.  We will supervise sunscreen application showing kids how to apply to their face, arms and neck etc but a spray would work best for us to apply to back.Sick Kids or Family – If a child, staff person or parent tests positive for COVID 19 then they will not be allowed at camp until they no longer test positive and have had no fever for 72 hours without fever reducing medications or for a minimum of 2 weeks, whichever is longer.  If there is a confirmed case of COVID 19 at camp families will be notified and the smaller group will close down and await guidance from the Department of Health and their tracing team before resuming.  New this year – each day at drop off families will need to provide the phone number of an adult that can pick up their child if the child becomes ill at camp.  This pick up needs to happen within 15 minutes – so parents working out of town will want to consider this before the start of camp.  A sick camper will be isolated immediately upon symptoms and a staffer will remain with them until they are picked up.Travelers- Campers from other states will be eligible to attend camp after they have been quarantined after entering VT for 14 days.  If a camper or staff member leaves the state for a vacation (unless they travel to the newly defined counties in neighboring states -so defined by the State of Vermont - ) they will not be able to return to camp until they have been quarantined in VT for 14 days or they can quarantine for 7 days and then be tested for COVID19, if the test is negative they can attend camp.Staff – We’re happy to announce that Ben Lovelette has been named as Day Camp Director.  Ben is a 2020 Graduate of UVM and will be taking a position at St. Albans City School as a Math & Social Studies teacher.  Ben was on staff last year as a counselor.  He’s been working on adjustments to camp in light of COVID19 from the start with our Program Manager Andrew Gratton and myself.  All staff will be screened in the same manner as campers each morning and will adhere to the same protocol listed above for a sick camper. We’re also delighted that we have a high number of returning staff from last year with 7 new staffers joining us.  Even in light of everything going on – we plan to have a great summer!Visiting the Pool – We’re happy that St. Albans City Pool will be open for Day Campers this summer.  The CDC reports that a clean, properly chlorinated pool does not support COVID19 virus.  At this time, it looks like campers will be able to visit the pool daily but for shorter periods of time than in previous years to keep the group size within the state guidelines.  We will work with the kids to help them maintain social distancing while in the pool and on the deck.  No masks will be worn in the pool, masks will be required on the pool deck if campers are not 6 feet apart.Swim Lessons & Swim Team – We will transport kids to and from swim lessons and swim team.  Campers will use the bathroom and change into their swim suit at camp arriving at the pool ready to go.  They will leave the pool in their swim suit and change back into their clothes at camp.  We reserve the right to make changes at any time – We have spent a great deal of time considering what changes need to happen to make our camp a fun and safe place to be.  We are prepared to adapt, alter or cancel camp at any time if state recommendations change.  As health guidelines change and risk decreases or increases if we need to make changes we will not hesitate to do so.  Our primary goal is health and safety.  We already know a lot about fun and we’re determined to have some while keeping everyone safe.  That said, the precautions we’re taking will undoubtedly add a few minutes to your drop off time in the morning.  Please bear with us.  We’ll be in contact with families throughout the summer and please contact us anytime you have a question, concern or suggestion at 802-524-1500 x *266 or at k.viens@stalbansvt.comConclusion – (for now) This is by no means an exhaustive list. We have been meeting for weeks discussing activities, deciding what equipment we need to ad, organizing extensive trainings for staff and thinking outside the box.   As a staff we will continue to meet and make adjustments daily. The Vermont Department of Health has issued revised Guidance for Childcare Programs, Summer Programs & Afterschool Programs in light of COVID 19.  We will strictly adhere to those requirements or exceed them.  We value the trust and confidence you place in us to provide a safe environment for your family and we’ll continue to be in touch. Contact the office at 524-1500 x *266, x *268 or the Recreation Cell phone at 309-1810THEMES FOR EACH WEEK WILL BE ADDED SOON-Week 1 - June 1st - June 5thWeek 2 - June 8th- June 12thWeek 3 - June 15th-June 19th Week 4 - June 22nd - 26th:  Week 5 - June 29th - July 3rd Week 6 - July 6th - 10thWeek 7 - July 13th - 17thWeek 8 - July 20th - 24thWeek 9 - July 27th - 31stWeek 10 - August 3rd - 7thWeek 11 - August 10th - 14thWeek 12 - August 17th - 21stPayment options:Register for all weeks you want this summer and pay only for one week at the time of the registration.

June 1 through June 19 will be held at Barlow Street Community Center, June 22 through August 21 will be divided between St. Albans City School and Barlow Street Community Center. Families will be notified by 6/19/2020 which location their child will be at.Hours – 7:30am-4:30pm  Locations- Camp will be held in separate locations to allow the space required for healthy distancing.  Barlow Street Community Center & St. Albans City School.Registration – St. Albans Recreation Department prides itself in being responsive to the needs of our families.  In the past we allowed families to pick and choose days they’d like to attend throughout the summer and we allow online registration right up until the moment you pull into the parking lot.  We also welcome part time campers. We work with families to make last minute changes and issue credits.  Most camps do not allow this flexibility. One change we have to make this summer is with registration. Campers must be registered by 12noon on the Thursday before the week your child is going to attend camp.  This change applies to part time campers and families that register week by week.  Those who have already registered for the summer do not need to make any changes.  We need this lead time to assemble smaller groups and to notify families which group and location their child should report to.Smaller Groups – Campers will be divided into smaller groups this summer.  Campers and staff will stay with the same group from start to finish to the degree this is possible.  Siblings will be assigned to the same group (unless parents request otherwise) The State of Vermont has authorized groups of 25 people including staff.  We will remain at or below that group size.Face Masks – Campers and counselors will wear masks as in all situations as recommended by CDC. Disposable masks will be available when needed, but families should provide 2 clean masks each day for their child.  Masks should be washed daily.  When children are outside and apart from one another, they will not need to wear their mask.  When they are indoors, or in closer contact with others, they will need to wear their mask.Distancing – Each group will adhere to social distancing standards of 6 feet to the extent possible. Face masks are not a replacement for distancing.  While we used to have 6 campers at a table working on an art or science project – this summer we’ll have 2 kids working at opposite ends of the tables.  At lunch, spots will be painted on the grass to remind kids what 6 feet is.Outside – It’s always been a goal of our camp to be outside as much as possible.  This summer more than ever we plan to eat and play outdoors by incorporating the use of tents.  In the past we’ve done art projects, presentations, movies inside – this summer we’ll be outside with those activities as much as possible.Drop Off & Pick Ups – If possible, families should have the same person do drop off and pick up each day – again to limit contacts.  Those doing drop off and pick ups must wear masks. Only one person at drop off and pick up.  If possible, older adults 65+ should not be tasked with drop off or pick up. You will be notified in advance of which group your camper is in and the location will be readily marked so you’ll know where to head. Pick up for kids based out of Barlow Street Community Center will be at the field across from St. Albans City Pool.  Pick up for campers based out of SACS will be at the school on the west side of the building.  No one who is ill, has symptoms of COVID 19 or is self-quarantining due to close contact with a COVID 19 positive person can do drop off or pick up.  Parents will respect distancing with staff and other campers during all interactions.At Drop Off – Campers will report directly to the head counselor of their small group – Not the one point drop-off we’ve used in the past.  At check in – every camper will be screened for temperature, the adult dropping off the camper will be asked the same screening questions everyday – even if the camper has attended each day of camp.  If a camper has a temperature of 100.4 F or greater they will not be allowed at camp.  Health Screening  A Daily Health Check will be conducted for each child attending camp upon arrival each day.These questions will be asked every day: Have you been in close contact with a person who has COVID-19? Do you feel unwell with any symptoms consistent with COVID-19? For example, have you had a cough, high temperature, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or new loss of taste or smell? Child will be screened for temperature. A visual inspection of the child for signs of infection, which could include flushed cheeks, fatigue, extreme fussiness, etc. will be made Exclusions –  Anyone diagnosed with COVID-19 or awaiting test-results should self-isolate until: It’s been 3 full days of no fever without the use of fever-reducing medication, And Other symptoms have improved, and  3. At least 10 days have passed since symptoms first appeared. The following children and staff will be excluded from care:  Sick for any reason Showing symptoms (outlined below) of COVID-19 Have been in close contact with someone with COVID-19 in the last 14 days A cough, fever, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, chills, repeated shakingwith chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or new loss of taste or smell Fever (temperature higher than 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit) Severe sore throat that lasts more than 48 hours, especially with a fever A significant rash, particularly when other symptoms are presentLarge amounts of discolored nasal discharge Severe ear pain Uncontrolled cough Diarrhea Severe headache, especially with a fever Healthy children and staff with the following symptoms/conditions may attend programming: Allergy symptoms (with no fever) that cause coughing and clear runny nose maystay if they have medically diagnosed allergies and follow medical treatmentplans. Well-controlled, mild asthma At Pick Up – One person will show up for pick up.  Information, unless urgent regarding the camper’s day will be communicated via phone or through email whenever possible.  Campers will be ready to go and pick up will be swift.  Hygiene – Campers will wash hands upon arrival at camp, before and after using the bathroom, before and after eating and throughout the day as deemed necessary.  Hand sanitizer stations will be available throughout camp. Camper groups at Barlow Street Community Center will be assigned a specific bathroom for their group and will use that one exclusively. Campers at SACS will use one of 2 bathrooms that will be used exclusively by campers and staff.Food – Camp will continue to participate in the Federal Summer Lunch Program supplying a morning snack and lunch.  If you prefer your child can pack a lunch, snacks & beverage.  Each child should bring a water bottle and bottles should be cleaned every night.  Camper lunch bags will not be able to be stored in a refrigerator so be sure to include ice packs if necessary.  No food will be shared between campers and no birthday cakes or treats this summer.  Camp is PEANUT AND TREE NUT FREE.  Please keep this in mind when packing your child’s lunch.Cleaning – Our facilities have always been cleaned daily and often throughout the day and that will continue with disinfection of all common and frequently touched surfaces on a regular schedule throughout the day and as deemed necessary.  Equipment & Supplies – Toys and sports equipment will be cleaned after each round of play and before another group uses them.  We will not use sensory tables, soft stuffed animals or dress up clothes.  Each camper will have their own art supplies in a Ziploc bag with their name on it.  They will be the only ones that use them.Backpacks & Stuff – Camper’s backpacks and belongings will be stored in each small group’s classroom in each camper’s specific and labeled spot. Each camper should bring swim suit, towel, sunscreen & water bottle. Please do not send more “stuff” than fits in your camper’s back pack.  Please consider a swim shirt in place of sunscreen for your camper.  If you’d rather not do that, please send a spray sunscreen.  We will supervise sunscreen application showing kids how to apply to their face, arms and neck etc but a spray would work best for us to apply to back.Sick Kids or Family – If a child, staff person or parent tests positive for COVID 19 then they will not be allowed at camp until they no longer test positive and have had no fever for 72 hours without fever reducing medications or for a minimum of 2 weeks, whichever is longer.  If there is a confirmed case of COVID 19 at camp families will be notified and the smaller group will close down and await guidance from the Department of Health and their tracing team before resuming.  New this year – each day at drop off families will need to provide the phone number of an adult that can pick up their child if the child becomes ill at camp.  This pick up needs to happen within 15 minutes – so parents working out of town will want to consider this before the start of camp.  A sick camper will be isolated immediately upon symptoms and a staffer will remain with them until they are picked up.Travelers- Campers from other states will be eligible to attend camp after they have been quarantined after entering VT for 14 days.  If a camper or staff member leaves the state for a vacation (unless they travel to the newly defined counties in neighboring states -so defined by the State of Vermont - ) they will not be able to return to camp until they have been quarantined in VT for 14 days or they can quarantine for 7 days and then be tested for COVID19, if the test is negative they can attend camp.Staff – We’re happy to announce that Ben Lovelette has been named as Day Camp Director.  Ben is a 2020 Graduate of UVM and will be taking a position at St. Albans City School as a Math & Social Studies teacher.  Ben was on staff last year as a counselor.  He’s been working on adjustments to camp in light of COVID19 from the start with our Program Manager Andrew Gratton and myself.  All staff will be screened in the same manner as campers each morning and will adhere to the same protocol listed above for a sick camper. We’re also delighted that we have a high number of returning staff from last year with 7 new staffers joining us.  Even in light of everything going on – we plan to have a great summer!Visiting the Pool – We’re happy that St. Albans City Pool will be open for Day Campers this summer.  The CDC reports that a clean, properly chlorinated pool does not support COVID19 virus.  At this time, it looks like campers will be able to visit the pool daily but for shorter periods of time than in previous years to keep the group size within the state guidelines.  We will work with the kids to help them maintain social distancing while in the pool and on the deck.  No masks will be worn in the pool, masks will be required on the pool deck if campers are not 6 feet apart.Swim Lessons & Swim Team – We will transport kids to and from swim lessons and swim team.  Campers will use the bathroom and change into their swim suit at camp arriving at the pool ready to go.  They will leave the pool in their swim suit and change back into their clothes at camp.  We reserve the right to make changes at any time – We have spent a great deal of time considering what changes need to happen to make our camp a fun and safe place to be.  We are prepared to adapt, alter or cancel camp at any time if state recommendations change.  As health guidelines change and risk decreases or increases if we need to make changes we will not hesitate to do so.  Our primary goal is health and safety.  We already know a lot about fun and we’re determined to have some while keeping everyone safe.  That said, the precautions we’re taking will undoubtedly add a few minutes to your drop off time in the morning.  Please bear with us.  We’ll be in contact with families throughout the summer and please contact us anytime you have a question, concern or suggestion at 802-524-1500 x *266 or at k.viens@stalbansvt.comConclusion – (for now) This is by no means an exhaustive list. We have been meeting for weeks discussing activities, deciding what equipment we need to ad, organizing extensive trainings for staff and thinking outside the box.   As a staff we will continue to meet and make adjustments daily. The Vermont Department of Health has issued revised Guidance for Childcare Programs, Summer Programs & Afterschool Programs in light of COVID 19.  We will strictly adhere to those requirements or exceed them.  We value the trust and confidence you place in us to provide a safe environment for your family and we’ll continue to be in touch. Contact the office at 524-1500 x *266, x *268 or the Recreation Cell phone at 309-1810THEMES FOR EACH WEEK WILL BE ADDED SOON-Week 1 - June 1st - June 5thWeek 2 - June 8th- June 12thWeek 3 - June 15th-June 19th Week 4 - June 22nd - 26th:  Week 5 - June 29th - July 3rd Week 6 - July 6th - 10thWeek 7 - July 13th - 17thWeek 8 - July 20th - 24thWeek 9 - July 27th - 31stWeek 10 - August 3rd - 7thWeek 11 - August 10th - 14thWeek 12 - August 17th - 21stPayment options:Register for all weeks you want this summer and pay only for one week at the time of the registration. Keep in mind that once the weeks are registered for, that space is held for your child. If you need to cancel - there is a cancellation fee.

The first week must be paid for as a deposit. Autopay: You can register for whichever weeks you like and the payment will automatically be charged to your debit or credit card on the Sunday before the week you've registered for. Payments are deducted on a weekly basis once camp starts until all weeks are paid for. The system is front loaded, so if you register for weeks 1, 2, 5 & 6, payments will be deducted weeks 1, 2, 3, & 4. Weeks 5 & 6 will be paid for in advance.

There is a start/ finish line in the back fields and there are arrows sending your out and bringing your back. The course with the white arrows is 1.8 miles (3k). We are working on clearing all the single track area to set up another course. Summary- 1 course set up marked by white field paint arrows on the ground (1.8 miles)- Course has the same start and finish line. - White arrow course is only on the wider cross country trails - Run the course any day that week and post a picture on our Facebook status Friday for your chance to win a local gift card. - If you don't want to run, bring your kids for a nice walk- No registration requiredPhoto Credit: Stina Booth

Each Friday we will post on our Facebook page asking who ran/ walked and what their time was or for a picture if you chose not to time yourself. Participants will be asked to post a picture of themselves on the trail, before or after. Comment that picture on our Facebook post for your chance to win a local gift card!!!Right now there is only 1 course set up. That course is marked by white field paint on the ground. There is a start/ finish line in the back fields and there are arrows sending your out and bringing your back. The course with the white arrows is 1.8 miles (3k). We are working on clearing all the single track area to set up another course. Summary- 1 course set up marked by white field paint arrows on the ground (1.8 miles)- Course has the same start and finish line. - White arrow course is only on the wider cross country trails - Run the course any day that week and post a picture on our Facebook status Friday for your chance to win a local gift card. - If you don't want to run, bring your kids for a nice walk- No registration requiredPhoto Credit: Stina Booth

7:00 AM - 7:30 AM    Day Camp - For kids K-8th Grade -Summer 2020 - Summer Day Camp - Early Drop Off
St. Albans Recreation Day Camp Opening – Summer 2020 Information St.  Albans Recreation department is pleased to announce that we’ll be offering a fun and safe camp option for families this summer.  There will be changes made to camp just as there have been to day to day life everywhere.  Changes made to camp are in direct correlation with the recommendations issued by the State of Vermont Department of Health.  Our Camp will meet or exceed those expectations.  Our goal is to provide a fun experience for your child in a safe and healthy environment.  Here is some important information for families. Dates- June 1, 2020 – August 21, 2020 We’re starting camp 3 weeks early to help out families returning to work while school is out going from 9 weeks to 12 weeks available. June 1 through June 19 will be held at Barlow Street Community Center, June 22 through August 21 will be divided between St. Albans City School and Barlow Street Community Center. Families will be notified by 6/19/2020 which location their child will be at.Hours – 7:30am-4:30pm  Locations- Camp will be held in separate locations to allow the space required for healthy distancing.  Barlow Street Community Center & St. Albans City School.Registration – St. Albans Recreation Department prides itself in being responsive to the needs of our families.  In the past we allowed families to pick and choose days they’d like to attend throughout the summer and we allow online registration right up until the moment you pull into the parking lot.  We also welcome part time campers. We work with families to make last minute changes and issue credits.  Most camps do not allow this flexibility. One change we have to make this summer is with registration. Campers must be registered by 12noon on the Thursday before the week your child is going to attend camp.  This change applies to part time campers and families that register week by week.  Those who have already registered for the summer do not need to make any changes.  We need this lead time to assemble smaller groups and to notify families which group and location their child should report to.Smaller Groups – Campers will be divided into smaller groups this summer.  Campers and staff will stay with the same group from start to finish to the degree this is possible.  Siblings will be assigned to the same group (unless parents request otherwise) The State of Vermont has authorized groups of 25 people including staff.  We will remain at or below that group size.Face Masks – Campers and counselors will wear masks as in all situations as recommended by CDC. Disposable masks will be available when needed, but families should provide 2 clean masks each day for their child.  Masks should be washed daily.  When children are outside and apart from one another, they will not need to wear their mask.  When they are indoors, or in closer contact with others, they will need to wear their mask.Distancing – Each group will adhere to social distancing standards of 6 feet to the extent possible. Face masks are not a replacement for distancing.  While we used to have 6 campers at a table working on an art or science project – this summer we’ll have 2 kids working at opposite ends of the tables.  At lunch, spots will be painted on the grass to remind kids what 6 feet is.Outside – It’s always been a goal of our camp to be outside as much as possible.  This summer more than ever we plan to eat and play outdoors by incorporating the use of tents.  In the past we’ve done art projects, presentations, movies inside – this summer we’ll be outside with those activities as much as possible.Drop Off & Pick Ups – If possible, families should have the same person do drop off and pick up each day – again to limit contacts.  Those doing drop off and pick ups must wear masks. Only one person at drop off and pick up.  If possible, older adults 65+ should not be tasked with drop off or pick up. You will be notified in advance of which group your camper is in and the location will be readily marked so you’ll know where to head. Pick up for kids based out of Barlow Street Community Center will be at the field across from St. Albans City Pool.  Pick up for campers based out of SACS will be at the school on the west side of the building.  No one who is ill, has symptoms of COVID 19 or is self-quarantining due to close contact with a COVID 19 positive person can do drop off or pick up.  Parents will respect distancing with staff and other campers during all interactions.At Drop Off – Campers will report directly to the head counselor of their small group – Not the one point drop-off we’ve used in the past.  At check in – every camper will be screened for temperature, the adult dropping off the camper will be asked the same screening questions everyday – even if the camper has attended each day of camp.  If a camper has a temperature of 100.4 F or greater they will not be allowed at camp.  Health Screening  A Daily Health Check will be conducted for each child attending camp upon arrival each day.These questions will be asked every day: Have you been in close contact with a person who has COVID-19? Do you feel unwell with any symptoms consistent with COVID-19? For example, have you had a cough, high temperature, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or new loss of taste or smell? Child will be screened for temperature. A visual inspection of the child for signs of infection, which could include flushed cheeks, fatigue, extreme fussiness, etc. will be made Exclusions –  Anyone diagnosed with COVID-19 or awaiting test-results should self-isolate until: It’s been 3 full days of no fever without the use of fever-reducing medication, And Other symptoms have improved, and  3. At least 10 days have passed since symptoms first appeared. The following children and staff will be excluded from care:  Sick for any reason Showing symptoms (outlined below) of COVID-19 Have been in close contact with someone with COVID-19 in the last 14 days A cough, fever, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, chills, repeated shakingwith chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or new loss of taste or smell Fever (temperature higher than 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit) Severe sore throat that lasts more than 48 hours, especially with a fever A significant rash, particularly when other symptoms are presentLarge amounts of discolored nasal discharge Severe ear pain Uncontrolled cough Diarrhea Severe headache, especially with a fever Healthy children and staff with the following symptoms/conditions may attend programming: Allergy symptoms (with no fever) that cause coughing and clear runny nose maystay if they have medically diagnosed allergies and follow medical treatmentplans. Well-controlled, mild asthma At Pick Up – One person will show up for pick up.  Information, unless urgent regarding the camper’s day will be communicated via phone or through email whenever possible.  Campers will be ready to go and pick up will be swift.  Hygiene – Campers will wash hands upon arrival at camp, before and after using the bathroom, before and after eating and throughout the day as deemed necessary.  Hand sanitizer stations will be available throughout camp. Camper groups at Barlow Street Community Center will be assigned a specific bathroom for their group and will use that one exclusively. Campers at SACS will use one of 2 bathrooms that will be used exclusively by campers and staff.Food – Camp will continue to participate in the Federal Summer Lunch Program supplying a morning snack and lunch.  If you prefer your child can pack a lunch, snacks & beverage.  Each child should bring a water bottle and bottles should be cleaned every night.  Camper lunch bags will not be able to be stored in a refrigerator so be sure to include ice packs if necessary.  No food will be shared between campers and no birthday cakes or treats this summer.  Camp is PEANUT AND TREE NUT FREE.  Please keep this in mind when packing your child’s lunch.Cleaning – Our facilities have always been cleaned daily and often throughout the day and that will continue with disinfection of all common and frequently touched surfaces on a regular schedule throughout the day and as deemed necessary.  Equipment & Supplies – Toys and sports equipment will be cleaned after each round of play and before another group uses them.  We will not use sensory tables, soft stuffed animals or dress up clothes.  Each camper will have their own art supplies in a Ziploc bag with their name on it.  They will be the only ones that use them.Backpacks & Stuff – Camper’s backpacks and belongings will be stored in each small group’s classroom in each camper’s specific and labeled spot. Each camper should bring swim suit, towel, sunscreen & water bottle. Please do not send more “stuff” than fits in your camper’s back pack.  Please consider a swim shirt in place of sunscreen for your camper.  If you’d rather not do that, please send a spray sunscreen.  We will supervise sunscreen application showing kids how to apply to their face, arms and neck etc but a spray would work best for us to apply to back.Sick Kids or Family – If a child, staff person or parent tests positive for COVID 19 then they will not be allowed at camp until they no longer test positive and have had no fever for 72 hours without fever reducing medications or for a minimum of 2 weeks, whichever is longer.  If there is a confirmed case of COVID 19 at camp families will be notified and the smaller group will close down and await guidance from the Department of Health and their tracing team before resuming.  New this year – each day at drop off families will need to provide the phone number of an adult that can pick up their child if the child becomes ill at camp.  This pick up needs to happen within 15 minutes – so parents working out of town will want to consider this before the start of camp.  A sick camper will be isolated immediately upon symptoms and a staffer will remain with them until they are picked up.Travelers- Campers from other states will be eligible to attend camp after they have been quarantined after entering VT for 14 days.  If a camper or staff member leaves the state for a vacation (unless they travel to the newly defined counties in neighboring states -so defined by the State of Vermont - ) they will not be able to return to camp until they have been quarantined in VT for 14 days or they can quarantine for 7 days and then be tested for COVID19, if the test is negative they can attend camp.Staff – We’re happy to announce that Ben Lovelette has been named as Day Camp Director.  Ben is a 2020 Graduate of UVM and will be taking a position at St. Albans City School as a Math & Social Studies teacher.  Ben was on staff last year as a counselor.  He’s been working on adjustments to camp in light of COVID19 from the start with our Program Manager Andrew Gratton and myself.  All staff will be screened in the same manner as campers each morning and will adhere to the same protocol listed above for a sick camper. We’re also delighted that we have a high number of returning staff from last year with 7 new staffers joining us.  Even in light of everything going on – we plan to have a great summer!Visiting the Pool – We’re happy that St. Albans City Pool will be open for Day Campers this summer.  The CDC reports that a clean, properly chlorinated pool does not support COVID19 virus.  At this time, it looks like campers will be able to visit the pool daily but for shorter periods of time than in previous years to keep the group size within the state guidelines.  We will work with the kids to help them maintain social distancing while in the pool and on the deck.  No masks will be worn in the pool, masks will be required on the pool deck if campers are not 6 feet apart.Swim Lessons & Swim Team – We will transport kids to and from swim lessons and swim team.  Campers will use the bathroom and change into their swim suit at camp arriving at the pool ready to go.  They will leave the pool in their swim suit and change back into their clothes at camp.  We reserve the right to make changes at any time – We have spent a great deal of time considering what changes need to happen to make our camp a fun and safe place to be.  We are prepared to adapt, alter or cancel camp at any time if state recommendations change.  As health guidelines change and risk decreases or increases if we need to make changes we will not hesitate to do so.  Our primary goal is health and safety.  We already know a lot about fun and we’re determined to have some while keeping everyone safe.  That said, the precautions we’re taking will undoubtedly add a few minutes to your drop off time in the morning.  Please bear with us.  We’ll be in contact with families throughout the summer and please contact us anytime you have a question, concern or suggestion at 802-524-1500 x *266 or at k.viens@stalbansvt.comConclusion – (for now) This is by no means an exhaustive list. We have been meeting for weeks discussing activities, deciding what equipment we need to ad, organizing extensive trainings for staff and thinking outside the box.   As a staff we will continue to meet and make adjustments daily. The Vermont Department of Health has issued revised Guidance for Childcare Programs, Summer Programs & Afterschool Programs in light of COVID 19.  We will strictly adhere to those requirements or exceed them.  We value the trust and confidence you place in us to provide a safe environment for your family and we’ll continue to be in touch. Contact the office at 524-1500 x *266, x *268 or the Recreation Cell phone at 309-1810THEMES FOR EACH WEEK WILL BE ADDED SOON-Week 1 - June 1st - June 5thWeek 2 - June 8th- June 12thWeek 3 - June 15th-June 19th Week 4 - June 22nd - 26th:  Week 5 - June 29th - July 3rd Week 6 - July 6th - 10thWeek 7 - July 13th - 17thWeek 8 - July 20th - 24thWeek 9 - July 27th - 31stWeek 10 - August 3rd - 7thWeek 11 - August 10th - 14thWeek 12 - August 17th - 21stPayment options:Register for all weeks you want this summer and pay only for one week at the time of the registration.

Please do not send more “stuff” than fits in your camper’s back pack.  Please consider a swim shirt in place of sunscreen for your camper.  If you’d rather not do that, please send a spray sunscreen.  We will supervise sunscreen application showing kids how to apply to their face, arms and neck etc but a spray would work best for us to apply to back.Sick Kids or Family – If a child, staff person or parent tests positive for COVID 19 then they will not be allowed at camp until they no longer test positive and have had no fever for 72 hours without fever reducing medications or for a minimum of 2 weeks, whichever is longer.  If there is a confirmed case of COVID 19 at camp families will be notified and the smaller group will close down and await guidance from the Department of Health and their tracing team before resuming.  New this year – each day at drop off families will need to provide the phone number of an adult that can pick up their child if the child becomes ill at camp.  This pick up needs to happen within 15 minutes – so parents working out of town will want to consider this before the start of camp.  A sick camper will be isolated immediately upon symptoms and a staffer will remain with them until they are picked up.Travelers- Campers from other states will be eligible to attend camp after they have been quarantined after entering VT for 14 days.  If a camper or staff member leaves the state for a vacation (unless they travel to the newly defined counties in neighboring states -so defined by the State of Vermont - ) they will not be able to return to camp until they have been quarantined in VT for 14 days or they can quarantine for 7 days and then be tested for COVID19, if the test is negative they can attend camp.Staff – We’re happy to announce that Ben Lovelette has been named as Day Camp Director.  Ben is a 2020 Graduate of UVM and will be taking a position at St. Albans City School as a Math & Social Studies teacher.  Ben was on staff last year as a counselor.  He’s been working on adjustments to camp in light of COVID19 from the start with our Program Manager Andrew Gratton and myself.  All staff will be screened in the same manner as campers each morning and will adhere to the same protocol listed above for a sick camper. We’re also delighted that we have a high number of returning staff from last year with 7 new staffers joining us.  Even in light of everything going on – we plan to have a great summer!Visiting the Pool – We’re happy that St. Albans City Pool will be open for Day Campers this summer.  The CDC reports that a clean, properly chlorinated pool does not support COVID19 virus.  At this time, it looks like campers will be able to visit the pool daily but for shorter periods of time than in previous years to keep the group size within the state guidelines.  We will work with the kids to help them maintain social distancing while in the pool and on the deck.  No masks will be worn in the pool, masks will be required on the pool deck if campers are not 6 feet apart.Swim Lessons & Swim Team – We will transport kids to and from swim lessons and swim team.  Campers will use the bathroom and change into their swim suit at camp arriving at the pool ready to go.  They will leave the pool in their swim suit and change back into their clothes at camp.  We reserve the right to make changes at any time – We have spent a great deal of time considering what changes need to happen to make our camp a fun and safe place to be.  We are prepared to adapt, alter or cancel camp at any time if state recommendations change.  As health guidelines change and risk decreases or increases if we need to make changes we will not hesitate to do so.  Our primary goal is health and safety.  We already know a lot about fun and we’re determined to have some while keeping everyone safe.  That said, the precautions we’re taking will undoubtedly add a few minutes to your drop off time in the morning.  Please bear with us.  We’ll be in contact with families throughout the summer and please contact us anytime you have a question, concern or suggestion at 802-524-1500 x *266 or at k.viens@stalbansvt.comConclusion – (for now) This is by no means an exhaustive list. We have been meeting for weeks discussing activities, deciding what equipment we need to ad, organizing extensive trainings for staff and thinking outside the box.   As a staff we will continue to meet and make adjustments daily. The Vermont Department of Health has issued revised Guidance for Childcare Programs, Summer Programs & Afterschool Programs in light of COVID 19.  We will strictly adhere to those requirements or exceed them.  We value the trust and confidence you place in us to provide a safe environment for your family and we’ll continue to be in touch. Contact the office at 524-1500 x *266, x *268 or the Recreation Cell phone at 309-1810THEMES FOR EACH WEEK WILL BE ADDED SOON-Week 1 - June 1st - June 5thWeek 2 - June 8th- June 12thWeek 3 - June 15th-June 19th Week 4 - June 22nd - 26th:  Week 5 - June 29th - July 3rd Week 6 - July 6th - 10thWeek 7 - July 13th - 17thWeek 8 - July 20th - 24thWeek 9 - July 27th - 31stWeek 10 - August 3rd - 7thWeek 11 - August 10th - 14thWeek 12 - August 17th - 21stPayment options:Register for all weeks you want this summer and pay only for one week at the time of the registration. Keep in mind that once the weeks are registered for, that space is held for your child. If you need to cancel - there is a cancellation fee. If you simply need to transfer to another week (and there is still room in that week) there is no transfer fee. The first week must be paid for as a deposit. Autopay: You can register for whichever weeks you like and the payment will automatically be charged to your debit or credit card on the Sunday before the week you've registered for. Payments are deducted on a weekly basis once camp starts until all weeks are paid for. The system is front loaded, so if you register for weeks 1, 2, 5 & 6, payments will be deducted weeks 1, 2, 3, & 4. Weeks 5 & 6 will be paid for in advance. No deposit required. Need to contact camp during camp hours?  Call the Day Camp cell at 802-393-0331Other Questions? Contact the rec cell at 802-309-1810

4:30 PM - 5:00 PM    Day Camp - For kids K-8th Grade -Summer 2020 - Summer Day Camp - Late Pick Up
St. Albans Recreation Day Camp Opening – Summer 2020 Information St.  Albans Recreation department is pleased to announce that we’ll be offering a fun and safe camp option for families this summer.  There will be changes made to camp just as there have been to day to day life everywhere.  Changes made to camp are in direct correlation with the recommendations issued by the State of Vermont Department of Health.  Our Camp will meet or exceed those expectations.  Our goal is to provide a fun experience for your child in a safe and healthy environment.  Here is some important information for families. Dates- June 1, 2020 – August 21, 2020 We’re starting camp 3 weeks early to help out families returning to work while school is out going from 9 weeks to 12 weeks available. June 1 through June 19 will be held at Barlow Street Community Center, June 22 through August 21 will be divided between St. Albans City School and Barlow Street Community Center. Families will be notified by 6/19/2020 which location their child will be at.Hours – 7:30am-4:30pm  Locations- Camp will be held in separate locations to allow the space required for healthy distancing.  Barlow Street Community Center & St. Albans City School.Registration – St. Albans Recreation Department prides itself in being responsive to the needs of our families.  In the past we allowed families to pick and choose days they’d like to attend throughout the summer and we allow online registration right up until the moment you pull into the parking lot.  We also welcome part time campers. We work with families to make last minute changes and issue credits.  Most camps do not allow this flexibility. One change we have to make this summer is with registration. Campers must be registered by 12noon on the Thursday before the week your child is going to attend camp.  This change applies to part time campers and families that register week by week.  Those who have already registered for the summer do not need to make any changes.  We need this lead time to assemble smaller groups and to notify families which group and location their child should report to.Smaller Groups – Campers will be divided into smaller groups this summer.  Campers and staff will stay with the same group from start to finish to the degree this is possible.  Siblings will be assigned to the same group (unless parents request otherwise) The State of Vermont has authorized groups of 25 people including staff.  We will remain at or below that group size.Face Masks – Campers and counselors will wear masks as in all situations as recommended by CDC. Disposable masks will be available when needed, but families should provide 2 clean masks each day for their child.  Masks should be washed daily.  When children are outside and apart from one another, they will not need to wear their mask.  When they are indoors, or in closer contact with others, they will need to wear their mask.Distancing – Each group will adhere to social distancing standards of 6 feet to the extent possible. Face masks are not a replacement for distancing.  While we used to have 6 campers at a table working on an art or science project – this summer we’ll have 2 kids working at opposite ends of the tables.  At lunch, spots will be painted on the grass to remind kids what 6 feet is.Outside – It’s always been a goal of our camp to be outside as much as possible.  This summer more than ever we plan to eat and play outdoors by incorporating the use of tents.  In the past we’ve done art projects, presentations, movies inside – this summer we’ll be outside with those activities as much as possible.Drop Off & Pick Ups – If possible, families should have the same person do drop off and pick up each day – again to limit contacts.  Those doing drop off and pick ups must wear masks. Only one person at drop off and pick up.  If possible, older adults 65+ should not be tasked with drop off or pick up. You will be notified in advance of which group your camper is in and the location will be readily marked so you’ll know where to head. Pick up for kids based out of Barlow Street Community Center will be at the field across from St. Albans City Pool.  Pick up for campers based out of SACS will be at the school on the west side of the building.  No one who is ill, has symptoms of COVID 19 or is self-quarantining due to close contact with a COVID 19 positive person can do drop off or pick up.  Parents will respect distancing with staff and other campers during all interactions.At Drop Off – Campers will report directly to the head counselor of their small group – Not the one point drop-off we’ve used in the past.  At check in – every camper will be screened for temperature, the adult dropping off the camper will be asked the same screening questions everyday – even if the camper has attended each day of camp.  If a camper has a temperature of 100.4 F or greater they will not be allowed at camp.  Health Screening  A Daily Health Check will be conducted for each child attending camp upon arrival each day.These questions will be asked every day: Have you been in close contact with a person who has COVID-19? Do you feel unwell with any symptoms consistent with COVID-19? For example, have you had a cough, high temperature, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or new loss of taste or smell? Child will be screened for temperature. A visual inspection of the child for signs of infection, which could include flushed cheeks, fatigue, extreme fussiness, etc. will be made Exclusions –  Anyone diagnosed with COVID-19 or awaiting test-results should self-isolate until: It’s been 3 full days of no fever without the use of fever-reducing medication, And Other symptoms have improved, and  3. At least 10 days have passed since symptoms first appeared. The following children and staff will be excluded from care:  Sick for any reason Showing symptoms (outlined below) of COVID-19 Have been in close contact with someone with COVID-19 in the last 14 days A cough, fever, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, chills, repeated shakingwith chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or new loss of taste or smell Fever (temperature higher than 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit) Severe sore throat that lasts more than 48 hours, especially with a fever A significant rash, particularly when other symptoms are presentLarge amounts of discolored nasal discharge Severe ear pain Uncontrolled cough Diarrhea Severe headache, especially with a fever Healthy children and staff with the following symptoms/conditions may attend programming: Allergy symptoms (with no fever) that cause coughing and clear runny nose maystay if they have medically diagnosed allergies and follow medical treatmentplans. Well-controlled, mild asthma At Pick Up – One person will show up for pick up.  Information, unless urgent regarding the camper’s day will be communicated via phone or through email whenever possible.  Campers will be ready to go and pick up will be swift.  Hygiene – Campers will wash hands upon arrival at camp, before and after using the bathroom, before and after eating and throughout the day as deemed necessary.  Hand sanitizer stations will be available throughout camp. Camper groups at Barlow Street Community Center will be assigned a specific bathroom for their group and will use that one exclusively. Campers at SACS will use one of 2 bathrooms that will be used exclusively by campers and staff.Food – Camp will continue to participate in the Federal Summer Lunch Program supplying a morning snack and lunch.  If you prefer your child can pack a lunch, snacks & beverage.  Each child should bring a water bottle and bottles should be cleaned every night.  Camper lunch bags will not be able to be stored in a refrigerator so be sure to include ice packs if necessary.  No food will be shared between campers and no birthday cakes or treats this summer.  Camp is PEANUT AND TREE NUT FREE.  Please keep this in mind when packing your child’s lunch.Cleaning – Our facilities have always been cleaned daily and often throughout the day and that will continue with disinfection of all common and frequently touched surfaces on a regular schedule throughout the day and as deemed necessary.  Equipment & Supplies – Toys and sports equipment will be cleaned after each round of play and before another group uses them.  We will not use sensory tables, soft stuffed animals or dress up clothes.  Each camper will have their own art supplies in a Ziploc bag with their name on it.  They will be the only ones that use them.Backpacks & Stuff – Camper’s backpacks and belongings will be stored in each small group’s classroom in each camper’s specific and labeled spot. Each camper should bring swim suit, towel, sunscreen & water bottle. Please do not send more “stuff” than fits in your camper’s back pack.  Please consider a swim shirt in place of sunscreen for your camper.  If you’d rather not do that, please send a spray sunscreen.  We will supervise sunscreen application showing kids how to apply to their face, arms and neck etc but a spray would work best for us to apply to back.Sick Kids or Family – If a child, staff person or parent tests positive for COVID 19 then they will not be allowed at camp until they no longer test positive and have had no fever for 72 hours without fever reducing medications or for a minimum of 2 weeks, whichever is longer.  If there is a confirmed case of COVID 19 at camp families will be notified and the smaller group will close down and await guidance from the Department of Health and their tracing team before resuming.  New this year – each day at drop off families will need to provide the phone number of an adult that can pick up their child if the child becomes ill at camp.  This pick up needs to happen within 15 minutes – so parents working out of town will want to consider this before the start of camp.  A sick camper will be isolated immediately upon symptoms and a staffer will remain with them until they are picked up.Travelers- Campers from other states will be eligible to attend camp after they have been quarantined after entering VT for 14 days.  If a camper or staff member leaves the state for a vacation (unless they travel to the newly defined counties in neighboring states -so defined by the State of Vermont - ) they will not be able to return to camp until they have been quarantined in VT for 14 days or they can quarantine for 7 days and then be tested for COVID19, if the test is negative they can attend camp.Staff – We’re happy to announce that Ben Lovelette has been named as Day Camp Director.  Ben is a 2020 Graduate of UVM and will be taking a position at St. Albans City School as a Math & Social Studies teacher.  Ben was on staff last year as a counselor.  He’s been working on adjustments to camp in light of COVID19 from the start with our Program Manager Andrew Gratton and myself.  All staff will be screened in the same manner as campers each morning and will adhere to the same protocol listed above for a sick camper. We’re also delighted that we have a high number of returning staff from last year with 7 new staffers joining us.  Even in light of everything going on – we plan to have a great summer!Visiting the Pool – We’re happy that St. Albans City Pool will be open for Day Campers this summer.  The CDC reports that a clean, properly chlorinated pool does not support COVID19 virus.  At this time, it looks like campers will be able to visit the pool daily but for shorter periods of time than in previous years to keep the group size within the state guidelines.  We will work with the kids to help them maintain social distancing while in the pool and on the deck.  No masks will be worn in the pool, masks will be required on the pool deck if campers are not 6 feet apart.Swim Lessons & Swim Team – We will transport kids to and from swim lessons and swim team.  Campers will use the bathroom and change into their swim suit at camp arriving at the pool ready to go.  They will leave the pool in their swim suit and change back into their clothes at camp.  We reserve the right to make changes at any time – We have spent a great deal of time considering what changes need to happen to make our camp a fun and safe place to be.  We are prepared to adapt, alter or cancel camp at any time if state recommendations change.  As health guidelines change and risk decreases or increases if we need to make changes we will not hesitate to do so.  Our primary goal is health and safety.  We already know a lot about fun and we’re determined to have some while keeping everyone safe.  That said, the precautions we’re taking will undoubtedly add a few minutes to your drop off time in the morning.  Please bear with us.  We’ll be in contact with families throughout the summer and please contact us anytime you have a question, concern or suggestion at 802-524-1500 x *266 or at k.viens@stalbansvt.comConclusion – (for now) This is by no means an exhaustive list. We have been meeting for weeks discussing activities, deciding what equipment we need to ad, organizing extensive trainings for staff and thinking outside the box.   As a staff we will continue to meet and make adjustments daily. The Vermont Department of Health has issued revised Guidance for Childcare Programs, Summer Programs & Afterschool Programs in light of COVID 19.  We will strictly adhere to those requirements or exceed them.  We value the trust and confidence you place in us to provide a safe environment for your family and we’ll continue to be in touch. Contact the office at 524-1500 x *266, x *268 or the Recreation Cell phone at 309-1810THEMES FOR EACH WEEK WILL BE ADDED SOON-Week 1 - June 1st - June 5thWeek 2 - June 8th- June 12thWeek 3 - June 15th-June 19th Week 4 - June 22nd - 26th:  Week 5 - June 29th - July 3rd Week 6 - July 6th - 10thWeek 7 - July 13th - 17thWeek 8 - July 20th - 24thWeek 9 - July 27th - 31stWeek 10 - August 3rd - 7thWeek 11 - August 10th - 14thWeek 12 - August 17th - 21stPayment options:Register for all weeks you want this summer and pay only for one week at the time of the registration.

7:00 AM - 7:30 AM    Day Camp - For kids K-8th Grade -Summer 2020 - Summer Day Camp - Early Drop Off
St. Albans Recreation Day Camp Opening – Summer 2020 Information St.  Albans Recreation department is pleased to announce that we’ll be offering a fun and safe camp option for families this summer.  There will be changes made to camp just as there have been to day to day life everywhere.  Changes made to camp are in direct correlation with the recommendations issued by the State of Vermont Department of Health.  Our Camp will meet or exceed those expectations.  Our goal is to provide a fun experience for your child in a safe and healthy environment.  Here is some important information for families. Dates- June 1, 2020 – August 21, 2020 We’re starting camp 3 weeks early to help out families returning to work while school is out going from 9 weeks to 12 weeks available. June 1 through June 19 will be held at Barlow Street Community Center, June 22 through August 21 will be divided between St. Albans City School and Barlow Street Community Center. Families will be notified by 6/19/2020 which location their child will be at.Hours – 7:30am-4:30pm  Locations- Camp will be held in separate locations to allow the space required for healthy distancing.  Barlow Street Community Center & St. Albans City School.Registration – St. Albans Recreation Department prides itself in being responsive to the needs of our families.  In the past we allowed families to pick and choose days they’d like to attend throughout the summer and we allow online registration right up until the moment you pull into the parking lot.  We also welcome part time campers. We work with families to make last minute changes and issue credits.  Most camps do not allow this flexibility. One change we have to make this summer is with registration. Campers must be registered by 12noon on the Thursday before the week your child is going to attend camp.  This change applies to part time campers and families that register week by week.  Those who have already registered for the summer do not need to make any changes.  We need this lead time to assemble smaller groups and to notify families which group and location their child should report to.Smaller Groups – Campers will be divided into smaller groups this summer.  Campers and staff will stay with the same group from start to finish to the degree this is possible.  Siblings will be assigned to the same group (unless parents request otherwise) The State of Vermont has authorized groups of 25 people including staff.  We will remain at or below that group size.Face Masks – Campers and counselors will wear masks as in all situations as recommended by CDC. Disposable masks will be available when needed, but families should provide 2 clean masks each day for their child.  Masks should be washed daily.  When children are outside and apart from one another, they will not need to wear their mask.  When they are indoors, or in closer contact with others, they will need to wear their mask.Distancing – Each group will adhere to social distancing standards of 6 feet to the extent possible. Face masks are not a replacement for distancing.  While we used to have 6 campers at a table working on an art or science project – this summer we’ll have 2 kids working at opposite ends of the tables.  At lunch, spots will be painted on the grass to remind kids what 6 feet is.Outside – It’s always been a goal of our camp to be outside as much as possible.  This summer more than ever we plan to eat and play outdoors by incorporating the use of tents.  In the past we’ve done art projects, presentations, movies inside – this summer we’ll be outside with those activities as much as possible.Drop Off & Pick Ups – If possible, families should have the same person do drop off and pick up each day – again to limit contacts.  Those doing drop off and pick ups must wear masks. Only one person at drop off and pick up.  If possible, older adults 65+ should not be tasked with drop off or pick up. You will be notified in advance of which group your camper is in and the location will be readily marked so you’ll know where to head. Pick up for kids based out of Barlow Street Community Center will be at the field across from St. Albans City Pool.  Pick up for campers based out of SACS will be at the school on the west side of the building.  No one who is ill, has symptoms of COVID 19 or is self-quarantining due to close contact with a COVID 19 positive person can do drop off or pick up.  Parents will respect distancing with staff and other campers during all interactions.At Drop Off – Campers will report directly to the head counselor of their small group – Not the one point drop-off we’ve used in the past.  At check in – every camper will be screened for temperature, the adult dropping off the camper will be asked the same screening questions everyday – even if the camper has attended each day of camp.  If a camper has a temperature of 100.4 F or greater they will not be allowed at camp.  Health Screening  A Daily Health Check will be conducted for each child attending camp upon arrival each day.These questions will be asked every day: Have you been in close contact with a person who has COVID-19? Do you feel unwell with any symptoms consistent with COVID-19? For example, have you had a cough, high temperature, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or new loss of taste or smell? Child will be screened for temperature. A visual inspection of the child for signs of infection, which could include flushed cheeks, fatigue, extreme fussiness, etc. will be made Exclusions –  Anyone diagnosed with COVID-19 or awaiting test-results should self-isolate until: It’s been 3 full days of no fever without the use of fever-reducing medication, And Other symptoms have improved, and  3. At least 10 days have passed since symptoms first appeared. The following children and staff will be excluded from care:  Sick for any reason Showing symptoms (outlined below) of COVID-19 Have been in close contact with someone with COVID-19 in the last 14 days A cough, fever, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, chills, repeated shakingwith chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or new loss of taste or smell Fever (temperature higher than 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit) Severe sore throat that lasts more than 48 hours, especially with a fever A significant rash, particularly when other symptoms are presentLarge amounts of discolored nasal discharge Severe ear pain Uncontrolled cough Diarrhea Severe headache, especially with a fever Healthy children and staff with the following symptoms/conditions may attend programming: Allergy symptoms (with no fever) that cause coughing and clear runny nose maystay if they have medically diagnosed allergies and follow medical treatmentplans. Well-controlled, mild asthma At Pick Up – One person will show up for pick up.  Information, unless urgent regarding the camper’s day will be communicated via phone or through email whenever possible.  Campers will be ready to go and pick up will be swift.  Hygiene – Campers will wash hands upon arrival at camp, before and after using the bathroom, before and after eating and throughout the day as deemed necessary.  Hand sanitizer stations will be available throughout camp. Camper groups at Barlow Street Community Center will be assigned a specific bathroom for their group and will use that one exclusively. Campers at SACS will use one of 2 bathrooms that will be used exclusively by campers and staff.Food – Camp will continue to participate in the Federal Summer Lunch Program supplying a morning snack and lunch.  If you prefer your child can pack a lunch, snacks & beverage.  Each child should bring a water bottle and bottles should be cleaned every night.  Camper lunch bags will not be able to be stored in a refrigerator so be sure to include ice packs if necessary.  No food will be shared between campers and no birthday cakes or treats this summer.  Camp is PEANUT AND TREE NUT FREE.  Please keep this in mind when packing your child’s lunch.Cleaning – Our facilities have always been cleaned daily and often throughout the day and that will continue with disinfection of all common and frequently touched surfaces on a regular schedule throughout the day and as deemed necessary.  Equipment & Supplies – Toys and sports equipment will be cleaned after each round of play and before another group uses them.  We will not use sensory tables, soft stuffed animals or dress up clothes.  Each camper will have their own art supplies in a Ziploc bag with their name on it.  They will be the only ones that use them.Backpacks & Stuff – Camper’s backpacks and belongings will be stored in each small group’s classroom in each camper’s specific and labeled spot. Each camper should bring swim suit, towel, sunscreen & water bottle. Please do not send more “stuff” than fits in your camper’s back pack.  Please consider a swim shirt in place of sunscreen for your camper.  If you’d rather not do that, please send a spray sunscreen.  We will supervise sunscreen application showing kids how to apply to their face, arms and neck etc but a spray would work best for us to apply to back.Sick Kids or Family – If a child, staff person or parent tests positive for COVID 19 then they will not be allowed at camp until they no longer test positive and have had no fever for 72 hours without fever reducing medications or for a minimum of 2 weeks, whichever is longer.  If there is a confirmed case of COVID 19 at camp families will be notified and the smaller group will close down and await guidance from the Department of Health and their tracing team before resuming.  New this year – each day at drop off families will need to provide the phone number of an adult that can pick up their child if the child becomes ill at camp.  This pick up needs to happen within 15 minutes – so parents working out of town will want to consider this before the start of camp.  A sick camper will be isolated immediately upon symptoms and a staffer will remain with them until they are picked up.Travelers- Campers from other states will be eligible to attend camp after they have been quarantined after entering VT for 14 days.  If a camper or staff member leaves the state for a vacation (unless they travel to the newly defined counties in neighboring states -so defined by the State of Vermont - ) they will not be able to return to camp until they have been quarantined in VT for 14 days or they can quarantine for 7 days and then be tested for COVID19, if the test is negative they can attend camp.Staff – We’re happy to announce that Ben Lovelette has been named as Day Camp Director.  Ben is a 2020 Graduate of UVM and will be taking a position at St. Albans City School as a Math & Social Studies teacher.  Ben was on staff last year as a counselor.  He’s been working on adjustments to camp in light of COVID19 from the start with our Program Manager Andrew Gratton and myself.  All staff will be screened in the same manner as campers each morning and will adhere to the same protocol listed above for a sick camper. We’re also delighted that we have a high number of returning staff from last year with 7 new staffers joining us.  Even in light of everything going on – we plan to have a great summer!Visiting the Pool – We’re happy that St. Albans City Pool will be open for Day Campers this summer.  The CDC reports that a clean, properly chlorinated pool does not support COVID19 virus.  At this time, it looks like campers will be able to visit the pool daily but for shorter periods of time than in previous years to keep the group size within the state guidelines.  We will work with the kids to help them maintain social distancing while in the pool and on the deck.  No masks will be worn in the pool, masks will be required on the pool deck if campers are not 6 feet apart.Swim Lessons & Swim Team – We will transport kids to and from swim lessons and swim team.  Campers will use the bathroom and change into their swim suit at camp arriving at the pool ready to go.  They will leave the pool in their swim suit and change back into their clothes at camp.  We reserve the right to make changes at any time – We have spent a great deal of time considering what changes need to happen to make our camp a fun and safe place to be.  We are prepared to adapt, alter or cancel camp at any time if state recommendations change.  As health guidelines change and risk decreases or increases if we need to make changes we will not hesitate to do so.  Our primary goal is health and safety.  We already know a lot about fun and we’re determined to have some while keeping everyone safe.  That said, the precautions we’re taking will undoubtedly add a few minutes to your drop off time in the morning.  Please bear with us.  We’ll be in contact with families throughout the summer and please contact us anytime you have a question, concern or suggestion at 802-524-1500 x *266 or at k.viens@stalbansvt.comConclusion – (for now) This is by no means an exhaustive list. We have been meeting for weeks discussing activities, deciding what equipment we need to ad, organizing extensive trainings for staff and thinking outside the box.   As a staff we will continue to meet and make adjustments daily. The Vermont Department of Health has issued revised Guidance for Childcare Programs, Summer Programs & Afterschool Programs in light of COVID 19.  We will strictly adhere to those requirements or exceed them.  We value the trust and confidence you place in us to provide a safe environment for your family and we’ll continue to be in touch. Contact the office at 524-1500 x *266, x *268 or the Recreation Cell phone at 309-1810THEMES FOR EACH WEEK WILL BE ADDED SOON-Week 1 - June 1st - June 5thWeek 2 - June 8th- June 12thWeek 3 - June 15th-June 19th Week 4 - June 22nd - 26th:  Week 5 - June 29th - July 3rd Week 6 - July 6th - 10thWeek 7 - July 13th - 17thWeek 8 - July 20th - 24thWeek 9 - July 27th - 31stWeek 10 - August 3rd - 7thWeek 11 - August 10th - 14thWeek 12 - August 17th - 21stPayment options:Register for all weeks you want this summer and pay only for one week at the time of the registration.

The first week must be paid for as a deposit. Autopay: You can register for whichever weeks you like and the payment will automatically be charged to your debit or credit card on the Sunday before the week you've registered for.

The Vermont Department of Health has issued revised Guidance for Childcare Programs, Summer Programs & Afterschool Programs in light of COVID 19.  We will strictly adhere to those requirements or exceed them.  We value the trust and confidence you place in us to provide a safe environment for your family and we’ll continue to be in touch. Contact the office at 524-1500 x *266, x *268 or the Recreation Cell phone at 309-1810THEMES FOR EACH WEEK WILL BE ADDED SOON-Week 1 - June 1st - June 5thWeek 2 - June 8th- June 12thWeek 3 - June 15th-June 19th Week 4 - June 22nd - 26th:  Week 5 - June 29th - July 3rd Week 6 - July 6th - 10thWeek 7 - July 13th - 17thWeek 8 - July 20th - 24thWeek 9 - July 27th - 31stWeek 10 - August 3rd - 7thWeek 11 - August 10th - 14thWeek 12 - August 17th - 21stPayment options:Register for all weeks you want this summer and pay only for one week at the time of the registration. Keep in mind that once the weeks are registered for, that space is held for your child. If you need to cancel - there is a cancellation fee. If you simply need to transfer to another week (and there is still room in that week) there is no transfer fee. The first week must be paid for as a deposit. Autopay: You can register for whichever weeks you like and the payment will automatically be charged to your debit or credit card on the Sunday before the week you've registered for. Payments are deducted on a weekly basis once camp starts until all weeks are paid for. The system is front loaded, so if you register for weeks 1, 2, 5 & 6, payments will be deducted weeks 1, 2, 3, & 4. Weeks 5 & 6 will be paid for in advance. No deposit required. Need to contact camp during camp hours?  Call the Day Camp cell at 802-393-0331Other Questions? Contact the rec cell at 802-309-1810

4:30 PM - 5:00 PM    Day Camp - For kids K-8th Grade -Summer 2020 - Summer Day Camp - Late Pick Up
St. Albans Recreation Day Camp Opening – Summer 2020 Information St.  Albans Recreation department is pleased to announce that we’ll be offering a fun and safe camp option for families this summer.  There will be changes made to camp just as there have been to day to day life everywhere.  Changes made to camp are in direct correlation with the recommendations issued by the State of Vermont Department of Health.  Our Camp will meet or exceed those expectations.  Our goal is to provide a fun experience for your child in a safe and healthy environment.  Here is some important information for families. Dates- June 1, 2020 – August 21, 2020 We’re starting camp 3 weeks early to help out families returning to work while school is out going from 9 weeks to 12 weeks available. June 1 through June 19 will be held at Barlow Street Community Center, June 22 through August 21 will be divided between St. Albans City School and Barlow Street Community Center. Families will be notified by 6/19/2020 which location their child will be at.Hours – 7:30am-4:30pm  Locations- Camp will be held in separate locations to allow the space required for healthy distancing.  Barlow Street Community Center & St. Albans City School.Registration – St. Albans Recreation Department prides itself in being responsive to the needs of our families.  In the past we allowed families to pick and choose days they’d like to attend throughout the summer and we allow online registration right up until the moment you pull into the parking lot.  We also welcome part time campers. We work with families to make last minute changes and issue credits.  Most camps do not allow this flexibility. One change we have to make this summer is with registration. Campers must be registered by 12noon on the Thursday before the week your child is going to attend camp.  This change applies to part time campers and families that register week by week.  Those who have already registered for the summer do not need to make any changes.  We need this lead time to assemble smaller groups and to notify families which group and location their child should report to.Smaller Groups – Campers will be divided into smaller groups this summer.  Campers and staff will stay with the same group from start to finish to the degree this is possible.  Siblings will be assigned to the same group (unless parents request otherwise) The State of Vermont has authorized groups of 25 people including staff.  We will remain at or below that group size.Face Masks – Campers and counselors will wear masks as in all situations as recommended by CDC. Disposable masks will be available when needed, but families should provide 2 clean masks each day for their child.  Masks should be washed daily.  When children are outside and apart from one another, they will not need to wear their mask.  When they are indoors, or in closer contact with others, they will need to wear their mask.Distancing – Each group will adhere to social distancing standards of 6 feet to the extent possible. Face masks are not a replacement for distancing.  While we used to have 6 campers at a table working on an art or science project – this summer we’ll have 2 kids working at opposite ends of the tables.  At lunch, spots will be painted on the grass to remind kids what 6 feet is.Outside – It’s always been a goal of our camp to be outside as much as possible.  This summer more than ever we plan to eat and play outdoors by incorporating the use of tents.  In the past we’ve done art projects, presentations, movies inside – this summer we’ll be outside with those activities as much as possible.Drop Off & Pick Ups – If possible, families should have the same person do drop off and pick up each day – again to limit contacts.  Those doing drop off and pick ups must wear masks. Only one person at drop off and pick up.  If possible, older adults 65+ should not be tasked with drop off or pick up. You will be notified in advance of which group your camper is in and the location will be readily marked so you’ll know where to head. Pick up for kids based out of Barlow Street Community Center will be at the field across from St. Albans City Pool.  Pick up for campers based out of SACS will be at the school on the west side of the building.  No one who is ill, has symptoms of COVID 19 or is self-quarantining due to close contact with a COVID 19 positive person can do drop off or pick up.  Parents will respect distancing with staff and other campers during all interactions.At Drop Off – Campers will report directly to the head counselor of their small group – Not the one point drop-off we’ve used in the past.  At check in – every camper will be screened for temperature, the adult dropping off the camper will be asked the same screening questions everyday – even if the camper has attended each day of camp.  If a camper has a temperature of 100.4 F or greater they will not be allowed at camp.  Health Screening  A Daily Health Check will be conducted for each child attending camp upon arrival each day.These questions will be asked every day: Have you been in close contact with a person who has COVID-19? Do you feel unwell with any symptoms consistent with COVID-19? For example, have you had a cough, high temperature, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or new loss of taste or smell? Child will be screened for temperature. A visual inspection of the child for signs of infection, which could include flushed cheeks, fatigue, extreme fussiness, etc. will be made Exclusions –  Anyone diagnosed with COVID-19 or awaiting test-results should self-isolate until: It’s been 3 full days of no fever without the use of fever-reducing medication, And Other symptoms have improved, and  3. At least 10 days have passed since symptoms first appeared. The following children and staff will be excluded from care:  Sick for any reason Showing symptoms (outlined below) of COVID-19 Have been in close contact with someone with COVID-19 in the last 14 days A cough, fever, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, chills, repeated shakingwith chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or new loss of taste or smell Fever (temperature higher than 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit) Severe sore throat that lasts more than 48 hours, especially with a fever A significant rash, particularly when other symptoms are presentLarge amounts of discolored nasal discharge Severe ear pain Uncontrolled cough Diarrhea Severe headache, especially with a fever Healthy children and staff with the following symptoms/conditions may attend programming: Allergy symptoms (with no fever) that cause coughing and clear runny nose maystay if they have medically diagnosed allergies and follow medical treatmentplans. Well-controlled, mild asthma At Pick Up – One person will show up for pick up.  Information, unless urgent regarding the camper’s day will be communicated via phone or through email whenever possible.  Campers will be ready to go and pick up will be swift.  Hygiene – Campers will wash hands upon arrival at camp, before and after using the bathroom, before and after eating and throughout the day as deemed necessary.  Hand sanitizer stations will be available throughout camp. Camper groups at Barlow Street Community Center will be assigned a specific bathroom for their group and will use that one exclusively. Campers at SACS will use one of 2 bathrooms that will be used exclusively by campers and staff.Food – Camp will continue to participate in the Federal Summer Lunch Program supplying a morning snack and lunch.  If you prefer your child can pack a lunch, snacks & beverage.  Each child should bring a water bottle and bottles should be cleaned every night.  Camper lunch bags will not be able to be stored in a refrigerator so be sure to include ice packs if necessary.  No food will be shared between campers and no birthday cakes or treats this summer.  Camp is PEANUT AND TREE NUT FREE.  Please keep this in mind when packing your child’s lunch.Cleaning – Our facilities have always been cleaned daily and often throughout the day and that will continue with disinfection of all common and frequently touched surfaces on a regular schedule throughout the day and as deemed necessary.  Equipment & Supplies – Toys and sports equipment will be cleaned after each round of play and before another group uses them.  We will not use sensory tables, soft stuffed animals or dress up clothes.  Each camper will have their own art supplies in a Ziploc bag with their name on it.  They will be the only ones that use them.Backpacks & Stuff – Camper’s backpacks and belongings will be stored in each small group’s classroom in each camper’s specific and labeled spot. Each camper should bring swim suit, towel, sunscreen & water bottle. Please do not send more “stuff” than fits in your camper’s back pack.  Please consider a swim shirt in place of sunscreen for your camper.  If you’d rather not do that, please send a spray sunscreen.  We will supervise sunscreen application showing kids how to apply to their face, arms and neck etc but a spray would work best for us to apply to back.Sick Kids or Family – If a child, staff person or parent tests positive for COVID 19 then they will not be allowed at camp until they no longer test positive and have had no fever for 72 hours without fever reducing medications or for a minimum of 2 weeks, whichever is longer.  If there is a confirmed case of COVID 19 at camp families will be notified and the smaller group will close down and await guidance from the Department of Health and their tracing team before resuming.  New this year – each day at drop off families will need to provide the phone number of an adult that can pick up their child if the child becomes ill at camp.  This pick up needs to happen within 15 minutes – so parents working out of town will want to consider this before the start of camp.  A sick camper will be isolated immediately upon symptoms and a staffer will remain with them until they are picked up.Travelers- Campers from other states will be eligible to attend camp after they have been quarantined after entering VT for 14 days.  If a camper or staff member leaves the state for a vacation (unless they travel to the newly defined counties in neighboring states -so defined by the State of Vermont - ) they will not be able to return to camp until they have been quarantined in VT for 14 days or they can quarantine for 7 days and then be tested for COVID19, if the test is negative they can attend camp.Staff – We’re happy to announce that Ben Lovelette has been named as Day Camp Director.  Ben is a 2020 Graduate of UVM and will be taking a position at St. Albans City School as a Math & Social Studies teacher.  Ben was on staff last year as a counselor.  He’s been working on adjustments to camp in light of COVID19 from the start with our Program Manager Andrew Gratton and myself.  All staff will be screened in the same manner as campers each morning and will adhere to the same protocol listed above for a sick camper. We’re also delighted that we have a high number of returning staff from last year with 7 new staffers joining us.  Even in light of everything going on – we plan to have a great summer!Visiting the Pool – We’re happy that St. Albans City Pool will be open for Day Campers this summer.  The CDC reports that a clean, properly chlorinated pool does not support COVID19 virus.  At this time, it looks like campers will be able to visit the pool daily but for shorter periods of time than in previous years to keep the group size within the state guidelines.  We will work with the kids to help them maintain social distancing while in the pool and on the deck.  No masks will be worn in the pool, masks will be required on the pool deck if campers are not 6 feet apart.Swim Lessons & Swim Team – We will transport kids to and from swim lessons and swim team.  Campers will use the bathroom and change into their swim suit at camp arriving at the pool ready to go.  They will leave the pool in their swim suit and change back into their clothes at camp.  We reserve the right to make changes at any time – We have spent a great deal of time considering what changes need to happen to make our camp a fun and safe place to be.  We are prepared to adapt, alter or cancel camp at any time if state recommendations change.  As health guidelines change and risk decreases or increases if we need to make changes we will not hesitate to do so.  Our primary goal is health and safety.  We already know a lot about fun and we’re determined to have some while keeping everyone safe.  That said, the precautions we’re taking will undoubtedly add a few minutes to your drop off time in the morning.  Please bear with us.  We’ll be in contact with families throughout the summer and please contact us anytime you have a question, concern or suggestion at 802-524-1500 x *266 or at k.viens@stalbansvt.comConclusion – (for now) This is by no means an exhaustive list. We have been meeting for weeks discussing activities, deciding what equipment we need to ad, organizing extensive trainings for staff and thinking outside the box.   As a staff we will continue to meet and make adjustments daily. The Vermont Department of Health has issued revised Guidance for Childcare Programs, Summer Programs & Afterschool Programs in light of COVID 19.  We will strictly adhere to those requirements or exceed them.  We value the trust and confidence you place in us to provide a safe environment for your family and we’ll continue to be in touch. Contact the office at 524-1500 x *266, x *268 or the Recreation Cell phone at 309-1810THEMES FOR EACH WEEK WILL BE ADDED SOON-Week 1 - June 1st - June 5thWeek 2 - June 8th- June 12thWeek 3 - June 15th-June 19th Week 4 - June 22nd - 26th:  Week 5 - June 29th - July 3rd Week 6 - July 6th - 10thWeek 7 - July 13th - 17thWeek 8 - July 20th - 24thWeek 9 - July 27th - 31stWeek 10 - August 3rd - 7thWeek 11 - August 10th - 14thWeek 12 - August 17th - 21stPayment options:Register for all weeks you want this summer and pay only for one week at the time of the registration.

Camper groups at Barlow Street Community Center will be assigned a specific bathroom for their group and will use that one exclusively. Campers at SACS will use one of 2 bathrooms that will be used exclusively by campers and staff.Food – Camp will continue to participate in the Federal Summer Lunch Program supplying a morning snack and lunch.  If you prefer your child can pack a lunch, snacks & beverage.  Each child should bring a water bottle and bottles should be cleaned every night.  Camper lunch bags will not be able to be stored in a refrigerator so be sure to include ice packs if necessary.  No food will be shared between campers and no birthday cakes or treats this summer.  Camp is PEANUT AND TREE NUT FREE.  Please keep this in mind when packing your child’s lunch.Cleaning – Our facilities have always been cleaned daily and often throughout the day and that will continue with disinfection of all common and frequently touched surfaces on a regular schedule throughout the day and as deemed necessary.  Equipment & Supplies – Toys and sports equipment will be cleaned after each round of play and before another group uses them.  We will not use sensory tables, soft stuffed animals or dress up clothes.  Each camper will have their own art supplies in a Ziploc bag with their name on it.  They will be the only ones that use them.Backpacks & Stuff – Camper’s backpacks and belongings will be stored in each small group’s classroom in each camper’s specific and labeled spot. Each camper should bring swim suit, towel, sunscreen & water bottle. Please do not send more “stuff” than fits in your camper’s back pack.  Please consider a swim shirt in place of sunscreen for your camper.  If you’d rather not do that, please send a spray sunscreen.  We will supervise sunscreen application showing kids how to apply to their face, arms and neck etc but a spray would work best for us to apply to back.Sick Kids or Family – If a child, staff person or parent tests positive for COVID 19 then they will not be allowed at camp until they no longer test positive and have had no fever for 72 hours without fever reducing medications or for a minimum of 2 weeks, whichever is longer.  If there is a confirmed case of COVID 19 at camp families will be notified and the smaller group will close down and await guidance from the Department of Health and their tracing team before resuming.  New this year – each day at drop off families will need to provide the phone number of an adult that can pick up their child if the child becomes ill at camp.  This pick up needs to happen within 15 minutes – so parents working out of town will want to consider this before the start of camp.  A sick camper will be isolated immediately upon symptoms and a staffer will remain with them until they are picked up.Travelers- Campers from other states will be eligible to attend camp after they have been quarantined after entering VT for 14 days.  If a camper or staff member leaves the state for a vacation (unless they travel to the newly defined counties in neighboring states -so defined by the State of Vermont - ) they will not be able to return to camp until they have been quarantined in VT for 14 days or they can quarantine for 7 days and then be tested for COVID19, if the test is negative they can attend camp.Staff – We’re happy to announce that Ben Lovelette has been named as Day Camp Director.  Ben is a 2020 Graduate of UVM and will be taking a position at St. Albans City School as a Math & Social Studies teacher.  Ben was on staff last year as a counselor.  He’s been working on adjustments to camp in light of COVID19 from the start with our Program Manager Andrew Gratton and myself.  All staff will be screened in the same manner as campers each morning and will adhere to the same protocol listed above for a sick camper. We’re also delighted that we have a high number of returning staff from last year with 7 new staffers joining us.  Even in light of everything going on – we plan to have a great summer!Visiting the Pool – We’re happy that St. Albans City Pool will be open for Day Campers this summer.  The CDC reports that a clean, properly chlorinated pool does not support COVID19 virus.  At this time, it looks like campers will be able to visit the pool daily but for shorter periods of time than in previous years to keep the group size within the state guidelines.  We will work with the kids to help them maintain social distancing while in the pool and on the deck.  No masks will be worn in the pool, masks will be required on the pool deck if campers are not 6 feet apart.Swim Lessons & Swim Team – We will transport kids to and from swim lessons and swim team.  Campers will use the bathroom and change into their swim suit at camp arriving at the pool ready to go.  They will leave the pool in their swim suit and change back into their clothes at camp.  We reserve the right to make changes at any time – We have spent a great deal of time considering what changes need to happen to make our camp a fun and safe place to be.  We are prepared to adapt, alter or cancel camp at any time if state recommendations change.  As health guidelines change and risk decreases or increases if we need to make changes we will not hesitate to do so.  Our primary goal is health and safety.  We already know a lot about fun and we’re determined to have some while keeping everyone safe.  That said, the precautions we’re taking will undoubtedly add a few minutes to your drop off time in the morning.  Please bear with us.  We’ll be in contact with families throughout the summer and please contact us anytime you have a question, concern or suggestion at 802-524-1500 x *266 or at k.viens@stalbansvt.comConclusion – (for now) This is by no means an exhaustive list.

The Vermont Department of Health has issued revised Guidance for Childcare Programs, Summer Programs & Afterschool Programs in light of COVID 19.  We will strictly adhere to those requirements or exceed them.  We value the trust and confidence you place in us to provide a safe environment for your family and we’ll continue to be in touch. Contact the office at 524-1500 x *266, x *268 or the Recreation Cell phone at 309-1810THEMES FOR EACH WEEK WILL BE ADDED SOON-Week 1 - June 1st - June 5thWeek 2 - June 8th- June 12thWeek 3 - June 15th-June 19th Week 4 - June 22nd - 26th:  Week 5 - June 29th - July 3rd Week 6 - July 6th - 10thWeek 7 - July 13th - 17thWeek 8 - July 20th - 24thWeek 9 - July 27th - 31stWeek 10 - August 3rd - 7thWeek 11 - August 10th - 14thWeek 12 - August 17th - 21stPayment options:Register for all weeks you want this summer and pay only for one week at the time of the registration.

7:30 AM - 4:30 PM    Day Camp - For kids K-8th Grade -Summer 2020 - Summer Day Camp 2020
St. Albans Recreation Day Camp Opening – Summer 2020 Information St.  Albans Recreation department is pleased to announce that we’ll be offering a fun and safe camp option for families this summer.  There will be changes made to camp just as there have been to day to day life everywhere.  Changes made to camp are in direct correlation with the recommendations issued by the State of Vermont Department of Health.  Our Camp will meet or exceed those expectations.  Our goal is to provide a fun experience for your child in a safe and healthy environment.  Here is some important information for families. Dates- June 1, 2020 – August 21, 2020 We’re starting camp 3 weeks early to help out families returning to work while school is out going from 9 weeks to 12 weeks available. June 1 through June 19 will be held at Barlow Street Community Center, June 22 through August 21 will be divided between St. Albans City School and Barlow Street Community Center. Families will be notified by 6/19/2020 which location their child will be at.Hours – 7:30am-4:30pm  Locations- Camp will be held in separate locations to allow the space required for healthy distancing.  Barlow Street Community Center & St. Albans City School.Registration – St. Albans Recreation Department prides itself in being responsive to the needs of our families.  In the past we allowed families to pick and choose days they’d like to attend throughout the summer and we allow online registration right up until the moment you pull into the parking lot.  We also welcome part time campers. We work with families to make last minute changes and issue credits.  Most camps do not allow this flexibility. One change we have to make this summer is with registration. Campers must be registered by 12noon on the Thursday before the week your child is going to attend camp.  This change applies to part time campers and families that register week by week.  Those who have already registered for the summer do not need to make any changes.  We need this lead time to assemble smaller groups and to notify families which group and location their child should report to.Smaller Groups – Campers will be divided into smaller groups this summer.  Campers and staff will stay with the same group from start to finish to the degree this is possible.  Siblings will be assigned to the same group (unless parents request otherwise) The State of Vermont has authorized groups of 25 people including staff.  We will remain at or below that group size.Face Masks – Campers and counselors will wear masks as in all situations as recommended by CDC. Disposable masks will be available when needed, but families should provide 2 clean masks each day for their child.  Masks should be washed daily.  When children are outside and apart from one another, they will not need to wear their mask.  When they are indoors, or in closer contact with others, they will need to wear their mask.Distancing – Each group will adhere to social distancing standards of 6 feet to the extent possible. Face masks are not a replacement for distancing.  While we used to have 6 campers at a table working on an art or science project – this summer we’ll have 2 kids working at opposite ends of the tables.  At lunch, spots will be painted on the grass to remind kids what 6 feet is.Outside – It’s always been a goal of our camp to be outside as much as possible.  This summer more than ever we plan to eat and play outdoors by incorporating the use of tents.  In the past we’ve done art projects, presentations, movies inside – this summer we’ll be outside with those activities as much as possible.Drop Off & Pick Ups – If possible, families should have the same person do drop off and pick up each day – again to limit contacts.  Those doing drop off and pick ups must wear masks. Only one person at drop off and pick up.  If possible, older adults 65+ should not be tasked with drop off or pick up. You will be notified in advance of which group your camper is in and the location will be readily marked so you’ll know where to head. Pick up for kids based out of Barlow Street Community Center will be at the field across from St. Albans City Pool.  Pick up for campers based out of SACS will be at the school on the west side of the building.  No one who is ill, has symptoms of COVID 19 or is self-quarantining due to close contact with a COVID 19 positive person can do drop off or pick up.  Parents will respect distancing with staff and other campers during all interactions.At Drop Off – Campers will report directly to the head counselor of their small group – Not the one point drop-off we’ve used in the past.  At check in – every camper will be screened for temperature, the adult dropping off the camper will be asked the same screening questions everyday – even if the camper has attended each day of camp.  If a camper has a temperature of 100.4 F or greater they will not be allowed at camp.  Health Screening  A Daily Health Check will be conducted for each child attending camp upon arrival each day.These questions will be asked every day: Have you been in close contact with a person who has COVID-19?

4:30 PM - 5:00 PM    Day Camp - For kids K-8th Grade -Summer 2020 - Summer Day Camp - Late Pick Up
St. Albans Recreation Day Camp Opening – Summer 2020 Information St.  Albans Recreation department is pleased to announce that we’ll be offering a fun and safe camp option for families this summer.  There will be changes made to camp just as there have been to day to day life everywhere.  Changes made to camp are in direct correlation with the recommendations issued by the State of Vermont Department of Health.  Our Camp will meet or exceed those expectations.  Our goal is to provide a fun experience for your child in a safe and healthy environment.  Here is some important information for families. Dates- June 1, 2020 – August 21, 2020 We’re starting camp 3 weeks early to help out families returning to work while school is out going from 9 weeks to 12 weeks available. June 1 through June 19 will be held at Barlow Street Community Center, June 22 through August 21 will be divided between St. Albans City School and Barlow Street Community Center. Families will be notified by 6/19/2020 which location their child will be at.Hours – 7:30am-4:30pm  Locations- Camp will be held in separate locations to allow the space required for healthy distancing.  Barlow Street Community Center & St. Albans City School.Registration – St. Albans Recreation Department prides itself in being responsive to the needs of our families.  In the past we allowed families to pick and choose days they’d like to attend throughout the summer and we allow online registration right up until the moment you pull into the parking lot.  We also welcome part time campers. We work with families to make last minute changes and issue credits.  Most camps do not allow this flexibility. One change we have to make this summer is with registration. Campers must be registered by 12noon on the Thursday before the week your child is going to attend camp.  This change applies to part time campers and families that register week by week.  Those who have already registered for the summer do not need to make any changes.  We need this lead time to assemble smaller groups and to notify families which group and location their child should report to.Smaller Groups – Campers will be divided into smaller groups this summer.  Campers and staff will stay with the same group from start to finish to the degree this is possible.  Siblings will be assigned to the same group (unless parents request otherwise) The State of Vermont has authorized groups of 25 people including staff.  We will remain at or below that group size.Face Masks – Campers and counselors will wear masks as in all situations as recommended by CDC. Disposable masks will be available when needed, but families should provide 2 clean masks each day for their child.  Masks should be washed daily.  When children are outside and apart from one another, they will not need to wear their mask.  When they are indoors, or in closer contact with others, they will need to wear their mask.Distancing – Each group will adhere to social distancing standards of 6 feet to the extent possible. Face masks are not a replacement for distancing.  While we used to have 6 campers at a table working on an art or science project – this summer we’ll have 2 kids working at opposite ends of the tables.  At lunch, spots will be painted on the grass to remind kids what 6 feet is.Outside – It’s always been a goal of our camp to be outside as much as possible.  This summer more than ever we plan to eat and play outdoors by incorporating the use of tents.  In the past we’ve done art projects, presentations, movies inside – this summer we’ll be outside with those activities as much as possible.Drop Off & Pick Ups – If possible, families should have the same person do drop off and pick up each day – again to limit contacts.  Those doing drop off and pick ups must wear masks. Only one person at drop off and pick up.  If possible, older adults 65+ should not be tasked with drop off or pick up. You will be notified in advance of which group your camper is in and the location will be readily marked so you’ll know where to head. Pick up for kids based out of Barlow Street Community Center will be at the field across from St. Albans City Pool.  Pick up for campers based out of SACS will be at the school on the west side of the building.  No one who is ill, has symptoms of COVID 19 or is self-quarantining due to close contact with a COVID 19 positive person can do drop off or pick up.  Parents will respect distancing with staff and other campers during all interactions.At Drop Off – Campers will report directly to the head counselor of their small group – Not the one point drop-off we’ve used in the past.  At check in – every camper will be screened for temperature, the adult dropping off the camper will be asked the same screening questions everyday – even if the camper has attended each day of camp.  If a camper has a temperature of 100.4 F or greater they will not be allowed at camp.  Health Screening  A Daily Health Check will be conducted for each child attending camp upon arrival each day.These questions will be asked every day: Have you been in close contact with a person who has COVID-19? Do you feel unwell with any symptoms consistent with COVID-19? For example, have you had a cough, high temperature, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or new loss of taste or smell? Child will be screened for temperature. A visual inspection of the child for signs of infection, which could include flushed cheeks, fatigue, extreme fussiness, etc. will be made Exclusions –  Anyone diagnosed with COVID-19 or awaiting test-results should self-isolate until: It’s been 3 full days of no fever without the use of fever-reducing medication, And Other symptoms have improved, and  3. At least 10 days have passed since symptoms first appeared. The following children and staff will be excluded from care:  Sick for any reason Showing symptoms (outlined below) of COVID-19 Have been in close contact with someone with COVID-19 in the last 14 days A cough, fever, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, chills, repeated shakingwith chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or new loss of taste or smell Fever (temperature higher than 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit) Severe sore throat that lasts more than 48 hours, especially with a fever A significant rash, particularly when other symptoms are presentLarge amounts of discolored nasal discharge Severe ear pain Uncontrolled cough Diarrhea Severe headache, especially with a fever Healthy children and staff with the following symptoms/conditions may attend programming: Allergy symptoms (with no fever) that cause coughing and clear runny nose maystay if they have medically diagnosed allergies and follow medical treatmentplans. Well-controlled, mild asthma At Pick Up – One person will show up for pick up.  Information, unless urgent regarding the camper’s day will be communicated via phone or through email whenever possible.  Campers will be ready to go and pick up will be swift.  Hygiene – Campers will wash hands upon arrival at camp, before and after using the bathroom, before and after eating and throughout the day as deemed necessary.  Hand sanitizer stations will be available throughout camp. Camper groups at Barlow Street Community Center will be assigned a specific bathroom for their group and will use that one exclusively. Campers at SACS will use one of 2 bathrooms that will be used exclusively by campers and staff.Food – Camp will continue to participate in the Federal Summer Lunch Program supplying a morning snack and lunch.  If you prefer your child can pack a lunch, snacks & beverage.  Each child should bring a water bottle and bottles should be cleaned every night.  Camper lunch bags will not be able to be stored in a refrigerator so be sure to include ice packs if necessary.  No food will be shared between campers and no birthday cakes or treats this summer.  Camp is PEANUT AND TREE NUT FREE.  Please keep this in mind when packing your child’s lunch.Cleaning – Our facilities have always been cleaned daily and often throughout the day and that will continue with disinfection of all common and frequently touched surfaces on a regular schedule throughout the day and as deemed necessary.  Equipment & Supplies – Toys and sports equipment will be cleaned after each round of play and before another group uses them.  We will not use sensory tables, soft stuffed animals or dress up clothes.  Each camper will have their own art supplies in a Ziploc bag with their name on it.  They will be the only ones that use them.Backpacks & Stuff – Camper’s backpacks and belongings will be stored in each small group’s classroom in each camper’s specific and labeled spot. Each camper should bring swim suit, towel, sunscreen & water bottle. Please do not send more “stuff” than fits in your camper’s back pack.  Please consider a swim shirt in place of sunscreen for your camper.  If you’d rather not do that, please send a spray sunscreen.  We will supervise sunscreen application showing kids how to apply to their face, arms and neck etc but a spray would work best for us to apply to back.Sick Kids or Family – If a child, staff person or parent tests positive for COVID 19 then they will not be allowed at camp until they no longer test positive and have had no fever for 72 hours without fever reducing medications or for a minimum of 2 weeks, whichever is longer.  If there is a confirmed case of COVID 19 at camp families will be notified and the smaller group will close down and await guidance from the Department of Health and their tracing team before resuming.  New this year – each day at drop off families will need to provide the phone number of an adult that can pick up their child if the child becomes ill at camp.  This pick up needs to happen within 15 minutes – so parents working out of town will want to consider this before the start of camp.  A sick camper will be isolated immediately upon symptoms and a staffer will remain with them until they are picked up.Travelers- Campers from other states will be eligible to attend camp after they have been quarantined after entering VT for 14 days.  If a camper or staff member leaves the state for a vacation (unless they travel to the newly defined counties in neighboring states -so defined by the State of Vermont - ) they will not be able to return to camp until they have been quarantined in VT for 14 days or they can quarantine for 7 days and then be tested for COVID19, if the test is negative they can attend camp.Staff – We’re happy to announce that Ben Lovelette has been named as Day Camp Director.  Ben is a 2020 Graduate of UVM and will be taking a position at St. Albans City School as a Math & Social Studies teacher.  Ben was on staff last year as a counselor.  He’s been working on adjustments to camp in light of COVID19 from the start with our Program Manager Andrew Gratton and myself.  All staff will be screened in the same manner as campers each morning and will adhere to the same protocol listed above for a sick camper. We’re also delighted that we have a high number of returning staff from last year with 7 new staffers joining us.  Even in light of everything going on – we plan to have a great summer!Visiting the Pool – We’re happy that St. Albans City Pool will be open for Day Campers this summer.  The CDC reports that a clean, properly chlorinated pool does not support COVID19 virus.  At this time, it looks like campers will be able to visit the pool daily but for shorter periods of time than in previous years to keep the group size within the state guidelines.  We will work with the kids to help them maintain social distancing while in the pool and on the deck.  No masks will be worn in the pool, masks will be required on the pool deck if campers are not 6 feet apart.Swim Lessons & Swim Team – We will transport kids to and from swim lessons and swim team.  Campers will use the bathroom and change into their swim suit at camp arriving at the pool ready to go.  They will leave the pool in their swim suit and change back into their clothes at camp.  We reserve the right to make changes at any time – We have spent a great deal of time considering what changes need to happen to make our camp a fun and safe place to be.  We are prepared to adapt, alter or cancel camp at any time if state recommendations change.  As health guidelines change and risk decreases or increases if we need to make changes we will not hesitate to do so.  Our primary goal is health and safety.  We already know a lot about fun and we’re determined to have some while keeping everyone safe.  That said, the precautions we’re taking will undoubtedly add a few minutes to your drop off time in the morning.  Please bear with us.  We’ll be in contact with families throughout the summer and please contact us anytime you have a question, concern or suggestion at 802-524-1500 x *266 or at k.viens@stalbansvt.comConclusion – (for now) This is by no means an exhaustive list. We have been meeting for weeks discussing activities, deciding what equipment we need to ad, organizing extensive trainings for staff and thinking outside the box.   As a staff we will continue to meet and make adjustments daily. The Vermont Department of Health has issued revised Guidance for Childcare Programs, Summer Programs & Afterschool Programs in light of COVID 19.  We will strictly adhere to those requirements or exceed them.  We value the trust and confidence you place in us to provide a safe environment for your family and we’ll continue to be in touch. Contact the office at 524-1500 x *266, x *268 or the Recreation Cell phone at 309-1810THEMES FOR EACH WEEK WILL BE ADDED SOON-Week 1 - June 1st - June 5thWeek 2 - June 8th- June 12thWeek 3 - June 15th-June 19th Week 4 - June 22nd - 26th:  Week 5 - June 29th - July 3rd Week 6 - July 6th - 10thWeek 7 - July 13th - 17thWeek 8 - July 20th - 24thWeek 9 - July 27th - 31stWeek 10 - August 3rd - 7thWeek 11 - August 10th - 14thWeek 12 - August 17th - 21stPayment options:Register for all weeks you want this summer and pay only for one week at the time of the registration.

If you simply need to transfer to another week (and there is still room in that week) there is no transfer fee. The first week must be paid for as a deposit. Autopay: You can register for whichever weeks you like and the payment will automatically be charged to your debit or credit card on the Sunday before the week you've registered for. Payments are deducted on a weekly basis once camp starts until all weeks are paid for. The system is front loaded, so if you register for weeks 1, 2, 5 & 6, payments will be deducted weeks 1, 2, 3, & 4. Weeks 5 & 6 will be paid for in advance. No deposit required. Need to contact camp during camp hours?  Call the Day Camp cell at 802-393-0331Other Questions? Contact the rec cell at 802-309-1810

This year the series is going to look a little bit different than it has in the past. To avoid gathering crowds we will set up the course and encourage people to get out and run it each week. For people who don't want to run or would like to bring your kids, walking is encouraged as well. Each Friday we will post on our Facebook page asking who ran/ walked and what their time was or for a picture if you chose not to time yourself. Participants will be asked to post a picture of themselves on the trail, before or after. Comment that picture on our Facebook post for your chance to win a local gift card!!!Right now there is only 1 course set up. That course is marked by white field paint on the ground. There is a start/ finish line in the back fields and there are arrows sending your out and bringing your back. The course with the white arrows is 1.8 miles (3k). We are working on clearing all the single track area to set up another course. Summary- 1 course set up marked by white field paint arrows on the ground (1.8 miles)- Course has the same start and finish line. - White arrow course is only on the wider cross country trails - Run the course any day that week and post a picture on our Facebook status Friday for your chance to win a local gift card. - If you don't want to run, bring your kids for a nice walk- No registration requiredPhoto Credit: Stina Booth
 
7:00 AM - 7:30 AM    Day Camp - For kids K-8th Grade -Summer 2020 - Summer Day Camp - Early Drop Off
St. Albans Recreation Day Camp Opening – Summer 2020 Information St.  Albans Recreation department is pleased to announce that we’ll be offering a fun and safe camp option for families this summer.  There will be changes made to camp just as there have been to day to day life everywhere.  Changes made to camp are in direct correlation with the recommendations issued by the State of Vermont Department of Health.  Our Camp will meet or exceed those expectations.  Our goal is to provide a fun experience for your child in a safe and healthy environment.  Here is some important information for families. Dates- June 1, 2020 – August 21, 2020 We’re starting camp 3 weeks early to help out families returning to work while school is out going from 9 weeks to 12 weeks available. June 1 through June 19 will be held at Barlow Street Community Center, June 22 through August 21 will be divided between St. Albans City School and Barlow Street Community Center. Families will be notified by 6/19/2020 which location their child will be at.Hours – 7:30am-4:30pm  Locations- Camp will be held in separate locations to allow the space required for healthy distancing.  Barlow Street Community Center & St. Albans City School.Registration – St. Albans Recreation Department prides itself in being responsive to the needs of our families.  In the past we allowed families to pick and choose days they’d like to attend throughout the summer and we allow online registration right up until the moment you pull into the parking lot.  We also welcome part time campers. We work with families to make last minute changes and issue credits.  Most camps do not allow this flexibility. One change we have to make this summer is with registration. Campers must be registered by 12noon on the Thursday before the week your child is going to attend camp.  This change applies to part time campers and families that register week by week.  Those who have already registered for the summer do not need to make any changes.  We need this lead time to assemble smaller groups and to notify families which group and location their child should report to.Smaller Groups – Campers will be divided into smaller groups this summer.  Campers and staff will stay with the same group from start to finish to the degree this is possible.  Siblings will be assigned to the same group (unless parents request otherwise) The State of Vermont has authorized groups of 25 people including staff.  We will remain at or below that group size.Face Masks – Campers and counselors will wear masks as in all situations as recommended by CDC. Disposable masks will be available when needed, but families should provide 2 clean masks each day for their child.  Masks should be washed daily.  When children are outside and apart from one another, they will not need to wear their mask.  When they are indoors, or in closer contact with others, they will need to wear their mask.Distancing – Each group will adhere to social distancing standards of 6 feet to the extent possible. Face masks are not a replacement for distancing.  While we used to have 6 campers at a table working on an art or science project – this summer we’ll have 2 kids working at opposite ends of the tables.  At lunch, spots will be painted on the grass to remind kids what 6 feet is.Outside – It’s always been a goal of our camp to be outside as much as possible.  This summer more than ever we plan to eat and play outdoors by incorporating the use of tents.  In the past we’ve done art projects, presentations, movies inside – this summer we’ll be outside with those activities as much as possible.Drop Off & Pick Ups – If possible, families should have the same person do drop off and pick up each day – again to limit contacts.  Those doing drop off and pick ups must wear masks. Only one person at drop off and pick up.  If possible, older adults 65+ should not be tasked with drop off or pick up. You will be notified in advance of which group your camper is in and the location will be readily marked so you’ll know where to head. Pick up for kids based out of Barlow Street Community Center will be at the field across from St. Albans City Pool.  Pick up for campers based out of SACS will be at the school on the west side of the building.  No one who is ill, has symptoms of COVID 19 or is self-quarantining due to close contact with a COVID 19 positive person can do drop off or pick up.  Parents will respect distancing with staff and other campers during all interactions.At Drop Off – Campers will report directly to the head counselor of their small group – Not the one point drop-off we’ve used in the past.  At check in – every camper will be screened for temperature, the adult dropping off the camper will be asked the same screening questions everyday – even if the camper has attended each day of camp.  If a camper has a temperature of 100.4 F or greater they will not be allowed at camp.  Health Screening  A Daily Health Check will be conducted for each child attending camp upon arrival each day.These questions will be asked every day: Have you been in close contact with a person who has COVID-19? Do you feel unwell with any symptoms consistent with COVID-19? For example, have you had a cough, high temperature, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or new loss of taste or smell? Child will be screened for temperature. A visual inspection of the child for signs of infection, which could include flushed cheeks, fatigue, extreme fussiness, etc. will be made Exclusions –  Anyone diagnosed with COVID-19 or awaiting test-results should self-isolate until: It’s been 3 full days of no fever without the use of fever-reducing medication, And Other symptoms have improved, and  3. At least 10 days have passed since symptoms first appeared. The following children and staff will be excluded from care:  Sick for any reason Showing symptoms (outlined below) of COVID-19 Have been in close contact with someone with COVID-19 in the last 14 days A cough, fever, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, chills, repeated shakingwith chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or new loss of taste or smell Fever (temperature higher than 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit) Severe sore throat that lasts more than 48 hours, especially with a fever A significant rash, particularly when other symptoms are presentLarge amounts of discolored nasal discharge Severe ear pain Uncontrolled cough Diarrhea Severe headache, especially with a fever Healthy children and staff with the following symptoms/conditions may attend programming: Allergy symptoms (with no fever) that cause coughing and clear runny nose maystay if they have medically diagnosed allergies and follow medical treatmentplans. Well-controlled, mild asthma At Pick Up – One person will show up for pick up.  Information, unless urgent regarding the camper’s day will be communicated via phone or through email whenever possible.  Campers will be ready to go and pick up will be swift.  Hygiene – Campers will wash hands upon arrival at camp, before and after using the bathroom, before and after eating and throughout the day as deemed necessary.  Hand sanitizer stations will be available throughout camp. Camper groups at Barlow Street Community Center will be assigned a specific bathroom for their group and will use that one exclusively. Campers at SACS will use one of 2 bathrooms that will be used exclusively by campers and staff.Food – Camp will continue to participate in the Federal Summer Lunch Program supplying a morning snack and lunch.  If you prefer your child can pack a lunch, snacks & beverage.  Each child should bring a water bottle and bottles should be cleaned every night.  Camper lunch bags will not be able to be stored in a refrigerator so be sure to include ice packs if necessary.  No food will be shared between campers and no birthday cakes or treats this summer.  Camp is PEANUT AND TREE NUT FREE.  Please keep this in mind when packing your child’s lunch.Cleaning – Our facilities have always been cleaned daily and often throughout the day and that will continue with disinfection of all common and frequently touched surfaces on a regular schedule throughout the day and as deemed necessary.  Equipment & Supplies – Toys and sports equipment will be cleaned after each round of play and before another group uses them.  We will not use sensory tables, soft stuffed animals or dress up clothes.  Each camper will have their own art supplies in a Ziploc bag with their name on it.  They will be the only ones that use them.Backpacks & Stuff – Camper’s backpacks and belongings will be stored in each small group’s classroom in each camper’s specific and labeled spot. Each camper should bring swim suit, towel, sunscreen & water bottle. Please do not send more “stuff” than fits in your camper’s back pack.  Please consider a swim shirt in place of sunscreen for your camper.  If you’d rather not do that, please send a spray sunscreen.  We will supervise sunscreen application showing kids how to apply to their face, arms and neck etc but a spray would work best for us to apply to back.Sick Kids or Family – If a child, staff person or parent tests positive for COVID 19 then they will not be allowed at camp until they no longer test positive and have had no fever for 72 hours without fever reducing medications or for a minimum of 2 weeks, whichever is longer.  If there is a confirmed case of COVID 19 at camp families will be notified and the smaller group will close down and await guidance from the Department of Health and their tracing team before resuming.  New this year – each day at drop off families will need to provide the phone number of an adult that can pick up their child if the child becomes ill at camp.  This pick up needs to happen within 15 minutes – so parents working out of town will want to consider this before the start of camp.  A sick camper will be isolated immediately upon symptoms and a staffer will remain with them until they are picked up.Travelers- Campers from other states will be eligible to attend camp after they have been quarantined after entering VT for 14 days.  If a camper or staff member leaves the state for a vacation (unless they travel to the newly defined counties in neighboring states -so defined by the State of Vermont - ) they will not be able to return to camp until they have been quarantined in VT for 14 days or they can quarantine for 7 days and then be tested for COVID19, if the test is negative they can attend camp.Staff – We’re happy to announce that Ben Lovelette has been named as Day Camp Director.  Ben is a 2020 Graduate of UVM and will be taking a position at St. Albans City School as a Math & Social Studies teacher.  Ben was on staff last year as a counselor.  He’s been working on adjustments to camp in light of COVID19 from the start with our Program Manager Andrew Gratton and myself.  All staff will be screened in the same manner as campers each morning and will adhere to the same protocol listed above for a sick camper. We’re also delighted that we have a high number of returning staff from last year with 7 new staffers joining us.  Even in light of everything going on – we plan to have a great summer!Visiting the Pool – We’re happy that St. Albans City Pool will be open for Day Campers this summer.  The CDC reports that a clean, properly chlorinated pool does not support COVID19 virus.  At this time, it looks like campers will be able to visit the pool daily but for shorter periods of time than in previous years to keep the group size within the state guidelines.  We will work with the kids to help them maintain social distancing while in the pool and on the deck.  No masks will be worn in the pool, masks will be required on the pool deck if campers are not 6 feet apart.Swim Lessons & Swim Team – We will transport kids to and from swim lessons and swim team.  Campers will use the bathroom and change into their swim suit at camp arriving at the pool ready to go.  They will leave the pool in their swim suit and change back into their clothes at camp.  We reserve the right to make changes at any time – We have spent a great deal of time considering what changes need to happen to make our camp a fun and safe place to be.  We are prepared to adapt, alter or cancel camp at any time if state recommendations change.  As health guidelines change and risk decreases or increases if we need to make changes we will not hesitate to do so.  Our primary goal is health and safety.  We already know a lot about fun and we’re determined to have some while keeping everyone safe.  That said, the precautions we’re taking will undoubtedly add a few minutes to your drop off time in the morning.  Please bear with us.  We’ll be in contact with families throughout the summer and please contact us anytime you have a question, concern or suggestion at 802-524-1500 x *266 or at k.viens@stalbansvt.comConclusion – (for now) This is by no means an exhaustive list. We have been meeting for weeks discussing activities, deciding what equipment we need to ad, organizing extensive trainings for staff and thinking outside the box.   As a staff we will continue to meet and make adjustments daily. The Vermont Department of Health has issued revised Guidance for Childcare Programs, Summer Programs & Afterschool Programs in light of COVID 19.  We will strictly adhere to those requirements or exceed them.  We value the trust and confidence you place in us to provide a safe environment for your family and we’ll continue to be in touch. Contact the office at 524-1500 x *266, x *268 or the Recreation Cell phone at 309-1810THEMES FOR EACH WEEK WILL BE ADDED SOON-Week 1 - June 1st - June 5thWeek 2 - June 8th- June 12thWeek 3 - June 15th-June 19th Week 4 - June 22nd - 26th:  Week 5 - June 29th - July 3rd Week 6 - July 6th - 10thWeek 7 - July 13th - 17thWeek 8 - July 20th - 24thWeek 9 - July 27th - 31stWeek 10 - August 3rd - 7thWeek 11 - August 10th - 14thWeek 12 - August 17th - 21stPayment options:Register for all weeks you want this summer and pay only for one week at the time of the registration.

7:30 AM - 4:30 PM    Day Camp - For kids K-8th Grade -Summer 2020 - Summer Day Camp 2020
St. Albans Recreation Day Camp Opening – Summer 2020 Information St.  Albans Recreation department is pleased to announce that we’ll be offering a fun and safe camp option for families this summer.  There will be changes made to camp just as there have been to day to day life everywhere.  Changes made to camp are in direct correlation with the recommendations issued by the State of Vermont Department of Health.  Our Camp will meet or exceed those expectations.  Our goal is to provide a fun experience for your child in a safe and healthy environment.  Here is some important information for families. Dates- June 1, 2020 – August 21, 2020 We’re starting camp 3 weeks early to help out families returning to work while school is out going from 9 weeks to 12 weeks available. June 1 through June 19 will be held at Barlow Street Community Center, June 22 through August 21 will be divided between St. Albans City School and Barlow Street Community Center. Families will be notified by 6/19/2020 which location their child will be at.Hours – 7:30am-4:30pm  Locations- Camp will be held in separate locations to allow the space required for healthy distancing.  Barlow Street Community Center & St. Albans City School.Registration – St. Albans Recreation Department prides itself in being responsive to the needs of our families.  In the past we allowed families to pick and choose days they’d like to attend throughout the summer and we allow online registration right up until the moment you pull into the parking lot.  We also welcome part time campers. We work with families to make last minute changes and issue credits.  Most camps do not allow this flexibility. One change we have to make this summer is with registration. Campers must be registered by 12noon on the Thursday before the week your child is going to attend camp.  This change applies to part time campers and families that register week by week.  Those who have already registered for the summer do not need to make any changes.  We need this lead time to assemble smaller groups and to notify families which group and location their child should report to.Smaller Groups – Campers will be divided into smaller groups this summer.  Campers and staff will stay with the same group from start to finish to the degree this is possible.  Siblings will be assigned to the same group (unless parents request otherwise) The State of Vermont has authorized groups of 25 people including staff.  We will remain at or below that group size.Face Masks – Campers and counselors will wear masks as in all situations as recommended by CDC. Disposable masks will be available when needed, but families should provide 2 clean masks each day for their child.  Masks should be washed daily.  When children are outside and apart from one another, they will not need to wear their mask.  When they are indoors, or in closer contact with others, they will need to wear their mask.Distancing – Each group will adhere to social distancing standards of 6 feet to the extent possible. Face masks are not a replacement for distancing.  While we used to have 6 campers at a table working on an art or science project – this summer we’ll have 2 kids working at opposite ends of the tables.  At lunch, spots will be painted on the grass to remind kids what 6 feet is.Outside – It’s always been a goal of our camp to be outside as much as possible.  This summer more than ever we plan to eat and play outdoors by incorporating the use of tents.  In the past we’ve done art projects, presentations, movies inside – this summer we’ll be outside with those activities as much as possible.Drop Off & Pick Ups – If possible, families should have the same person do drop off and pick up each day – again to limit contacts.  Those doing drop off and pick ups must wear masks. Only one person at drop off and pick up.  If possible, older adults 65+ should not be tasked with drop off or pick up. You will be notified in advance of which group your camper is in and the location will be readily marked so you’ll know where to head. Pick up for kids based out of Barlow Street Community Center will be at the field across from St. Albans City Pool.  Pick up for campers based out of SACS will be at the school on the west side of the building.  No one who is ill, has symptoms of COVID 19 or is self-quarantining due to close contact with a COVID 19 positive person can do drop off or pick up.  Parents will respect distancing with staff and other campers during all interactions.At Drop Off – Campers will report directly to the head counselor of their small group – Not the one point drop-off we’ve used in the past.  At check in – every camper will be screened for temperature, the adult dropping off the camper will be asked the same screening questions everyday – even if the camper has attended each day of camp.  If a camper has a temperature of 100.4 F or greater they will not be allowed at camp.  Health Screening  A Daily Health Check will be conducted for each child attending camp upon arrival each day.These questions will be asked every day: Have you been in close contact with a person who has COVID-19? Do you feel unwell with any symptoms consistent with COVID-19? For example, have you had a cough, high temperature, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or new loss of taste or smell? Child will be screened for temperature. A visual inspection of the child for signs of infection, which could include flushed cheeks, fatigue, extreme fussiness, etc. will be made Exclusions –  Anyone diagnosed with COVID-19 or awaiting test-results should self-isolate until: It’s been 3 full days of no fever without the use of fever-reducing medication, And Other symptoms have improved, and  3. At least 10 days have passed since symptoms first appeared. The following children and staff will be excluded from care:  Sick for any reason Showing symptoms (outlined below) of COVID-19 Have been in close contact with someone with COVID-19 in the last 14 days A cough, fever, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, chills, repeated shakingwith chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or new loss of taste or smell Fever (temperature higher than 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit) Severe sore throat that lasts more than 48 hours, especially with a fever A significant rash, particularly when other symptoms are presentLarge amounts of discolored nasal discharge Severe ear pain Uncontrolled cough Diarrhea Severe headache, especially with a fever Healthy children and staff with the following symptoms/conditions may attend programming: Allergy symptoms (with no fever) that cause coughing and clear runny nose maystay if they have medically diagnosed allergies and follow medical treatmentplans. Well-controlled, mild asthma At Pick Up – One person will show up for pick up.  Information, unless urgent regarding the camper’s day will be communicated via phone or through email whenever possible.  Campers will be ready to go and pick up will be swift.  Hygiene – Campers will wash hands upon arrival at camp, before and after using the bathroom, before and after eating and throughout the day as deemed necessary.  Hand sanitizer stations will be available throughout camp. Camper groups at Barlow Street Community Center will be assigned a specific bathroom for their group and will use that one exclusively. Campers at SACS will use one of 2 bathrooms that will be used exclusively by campers and staff.Food – Camp will continue to participate in the Federal Summer Lunch Program supplying a morning snack and lunch.  If you prefer your child can pack a lunch, snacks & beverage.  Each child should bring a water bottle and bottles should be cleaned every night.  Camper lunch bags will not be able to be stored in a refrigerator so be sure to include ice packs if necessary.  No food will be shared between campers and no birthday cakes or treats this summer.  Camp is PEANUT AND TREE NUT FREE.  Please keep this in mind when packing your child’s lunch.Cleaning – Our facilities have always been cleaned daily and often throughout the day and that will continue with disinfection of all common and frequently touched surfaces on a regular schedule throughout the day and as deemed necessary.  Equipment & Supplies – Toys and sports equipment will be cleaned after each round of play and before another group uses them.  We will not use sensory tables, soft stuffed animals or dress up clothes.  Each camper will have their own art supplies in a Ziploc bag with their name on it.  They will be the only ones that use them.Backpacks & Stuff – Camper’s backpacks and belongings will be stored in each small group’s classroom in each camper’s specific and labeled spot.
