St. Pauls Summer Camp 2020

St. Pauls Summer Camp will begin on July 6th and run through July 30th. We will be operating in a limited capacity, and without field trips, BUT will still have many of your camper’s favorite activities! Including: dress up days, arts & crafts, science activities, music and drama, sports and MORE!!

Camp will take place outside of St. Pauls in the parking lot and green space. Campers will have the option to sign up for weekly sessions (Monday through Thursday), for mornings or afternoons (morning sessions are 9am–12pm, afternoon sessions are 1pm–4pm).

Our priority has always been, and continues to be, to provide a healthy and safe camp experience for your campers. Your collaboration and cooperation is an important component to our success. We appreciate your ongoing flexibility and understanding during this time. We are excited to see our camp families and enjoy the unbeatable Chicago summer season!

This modified version of camp will be executed by following CDC guidelines, and will include the following modifications:

  • Camp will begin for school aged children from July 6th and run to July 30th for 4 sessions, each lasting Monday through Thursday of each week in July. Instead of the flexible schedule we offered in the past, campers will be able to sign up for week long sessions. Consistency in group members is important.  
  • In order to limit exposure, camp sessions will be held in the morning and afternoon. Campers will sign up to attend either the morning or afternoon group each week. The morning group will last from 9:00am to 12:00pm, the afternoon from 1:00pm to 4:00pm. No camper will be allowed to stay all day. We will not be offering a before camp or after camp care option.
  • Weekly registration is required of all campers to ensure we maintain safety measures.
  • Camp is $200 per camper per week.  
  • In order to limit exposure, camp groups will be limited to 10 people total, (8 campers and 2 counselors per group). Groups will not interact with each other.
  • In order to limit exposure, there will be a maximum of 2 groups present at a time.
  • In compliance with phase 3 guidelines, all campers and counselors would be required to wear face masks unless there is a medical reason they are unable to do so.  
  • In order to best practice social distancing guidelines, all camp activities (except for bathroom use) will occur in the church’s outdoor spaces.
  • If any camper or counselor is found to have COVID-19, their camp group will be closed for 2 days (in accordance with CDC guidelines) and all campers and staff who came into contact with the infected person will be notified. There will be a deep clean before re-opening.   
  • If a child appears to be sick in any way, they will not be allowed at camp. If they come to camp and it becomes clear they are sick, they will be sent home immediately.  
  • If a counselor shows any signs of illness, they will not be allowed to work.
  • Please do not come to camp if you are experiencing the following:
    • Signs of a fever or measured temperature of 100.3 degrees or greater within the past 24 hours. We will take temperatures of campers upon entrance to camp each day.
    • Cough or trouble breathing within the past 24 hours.
    • Have had close contact with an individual diagnosed with COVID-19 (except for health workers taking care of patients with COVID-19).
    • Have been asked to self-isolate or quarantine by your doctor or a local public health official. 
  • Sharing items from home is not allowed. This includes camp provided snacks. If a counselor hands out items to use for a camp activity, those items will become the property of the child using them and can only be used by that child so that kids are not sharing items and passing them around. Each child’s belongings will be kept separate from others.

Camp Sessions: Camp sessions will run Monday to Thursday. Each session will cost $200. You may sign your child up for morning OR afternoon sessions for the month of July.
