US Sports Camps (USSC) is committed to creating a safe and positive environment for all campers and staff. In advance of our 2022 camp season, we continue to follow CDC guidance and adhere to state, local, and facility requirements to ensure the safety of our campers and staff. As safety guidelines change, our policies and procedures listed below may change accordingly.
USSC COVID-19 SAFETY PROCEDURES & REGULATIONS:
The following measures are in place to ensure the safety of campers, staff, and camper families. Our precautions are in place to reduce the likelihood of transmission at camp, but we cannot guarantee zero risk. All participants will be asked to comply throughout the duration of camps—and any staff member, camper or camper family member who does not comply will not be allowed at camp.
The following procedures apply specifically to overnight USSC camps and clinics and must be adhered to by all staff, campers, and camper families.
*Scenario procedures may vary depending on local, state, and CDC guidelines.
If a camper or staff exhibits symptoms or contracts COVID-19 during the camp or 5 days after, they are responsible for notifying the Camp Director immediately. If any cases are reported, all camper families and staff will be notified.
In the event of a confirmed COVID-19 case of a camper or staff member during camp, camper families and staff will be notified. Protocols may include temporarily closing the site where exposure occurred.
If a USSC staff member reports symptoms of COVID-19 during camp, they will be placed on temporary leave until a negative COVID-19 test result is confirmed and at least 48 hours have passed since recovery, or 5 days have passed since symptoms first appeared.
If a camper reports symptoms of COVID-19 during camp, they will be quarantined until their parent/guardian arrives to pick them up from camp. The affected camper will not be able to return until a negative COVID-19 test result is confirmed and at least 48 hours have passed since recovery, or 5 days have passed since symptoms first appeared. The camper may be allowed back as soon as the next day if a doctor’s note is provided that states the condition was not related to COVID-19.
We Are All In This Together...
We are here to help make the camp experience safe and enjoyable. Parents are welcome to reach out with any questions. While we strive to provide the best answers possible, USSC Directors and camp staff are not authorized or qualified to provide medical or legal advice specific to a camper’s symptoms or circumstances. If parents have any doubt whether their child should participate in camp, we ask that they err on the side of caution and keep them home. USSC will provide you with a prorated voucher for any missed days of camp.
US Sports Camps will follow COVID-19 social distancing and safety guidelines as set by the CDC and local government authorities. While we are taking every possible precaution, we cannot guarantee against exposure during camps. An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present.
