Illness and Medication

If your child should become ill while at camp, you will be contacted immediately. Your child will need to be picked up from camp within an hour of the phone call. If your child is running a fever, has severe diarrhea or is contagious they will need to stay home for a minimum of 24 hours. Please inform us of any medical condition or diet restriction that may affect your child. Medications will need to have a doctor’s note to be given to your child while at camp.


Children will be grouped each week, based on enrollment. Children will be interacting together in close proximity to each other for many hands on activities and projects. Children will wear masks while in the building and in closed spaces. When children are outside masks may or may not be required depending on protocol at that time. If a child tests positive for Covid, quarantine may be required for other members of the group. Covid guidelines may change before June and will be re-evaluated prior to camp starting.

***Swim lessons and open swimming are dependent on Covid regulations and pool capacity and arrangements with the City of Shrewsbury and Midwest Pool Management
