To determine if you are in-district, please visit
To sign up for one or multiple summer camps, you will need to have a THPRD account (No account? Sign up here).Frequently Asked Questions
What kind of modifications will be made to camps?
We will be maintaining smaller, stable group sizes for camps. We continue to select activities which maintain physical distancing and reduce touchpoints.
What inclement weather plans are in place for outdoor camps?
In case of rain, we will utilize areas available at camp loactions and portable canopies to keep campers dry and out of the weather.
Our regular procedures regarding sun protection will also be strictly followed, including encouraging staff and campers to play or take breaks in shaded areas, and having children apply sunscreen at least every two (2) hours and after drying off from being wet. Participants will be encouraged to drink plenty of water to stay cool and avoid dehydration
Will THPRD track any illness symptoms or outbreaks?
We will continue to monitor participants for Covid symptoms. Any child that has been exposed to Covid 19 in the past 14 days or has symptoms of Covid 19 may not attend camp.
We will keep logs for each pod to help identify anyone at-risk, should there be an illness associated with a camper or staff member.
If we suspect an illness or infection, we will immediately isolate the camper from other participants and follow our standard procedure for sick campers, which includes having the parent/guardian check the child out of the activity and take them home if they are on-site. If the parent/guardian is not on-site, staff will attempt to contact the parent/guardian listed as an emergency contact information to pick up the child.
If campers or staff, or anyone in their household, has recently had an illness with a fever or a new cough, they should remain at home until:
- At least 10 days after illness onset, and
- 24 hours after the fever is gone, without the use of fever-reducing medication.
Campers or staff who have had direct exposure to COVID-19, will not be able to return until 14 days after the exposure, assuming they do not develop symptoms.
Will there be other changes to pick-up and drop-off?
Procedures will vary based on the site of camp. Site-specific check-in and check-out procedure information will be provided in the parent handbook for each facility, which is sent to families before the start of camp. Our goal will be to minimize exposure for all involved.
Will campers and staff be required to wear face masks?
State rules now allow for youth summer camp participants to participate without wearing a mask. THPRD has opted for parental choice for outdoor camps, meaning families can make the decision for themselves if they want their child to wear a mask outdoors or not. THPRD staff are still required to wear a mask outdoors.
In terms of youth camps held indoors, THPRD has gone a step above current statewide guidance, and is requiring both youth camp participants and staff to wear face coverings indoors out of an abundance of caution
Will THPRD staff be given additional training for camp this year?
Camp staff receive comprehensive training every summer. We will place an emphasis on safety and program protocols before camp begins, including policies around face masks and increased handwashing procedures, social distancing expectations amongst campers, as well as new protocols based on CDC and Oregon Health Authority requirements.
Can you tell me more about increased disinfection procedures?
We are closely monitoring statewide, national and industry guidelines to keep our campers, families, and staff safe. Campers and staff will regularly wash their hands, high-touch areas will be regularly and routinely sanitized, and physical distancing will be emphasized. We have developed additional guidelines regarding daily health checks, physical distancing, handwashing, sanitizing items, adjusted activities, meals and snacks, and drop off and pick up.
What about smoke or smog?
In the case of poor air quality, staff will modify activities, reducing high energy level activities, such as running, tag games, and extensive hiking. Staff will also encourage campers to take extra breaks, drink lots of water, and will, of course, be keeping a close eye on participants throughout the day.
If the Air Quality Index (AQI) reaches the level of Very Unhealthy (200-250), programs will be canceled until AQI levels drop below Very Unhealthy levels (<200).
My child may benefit from additional support. Does THPRD offer inclusion services?
THPRD’s Inclusion Services program provides reasonable support and accommodation that assists patrons experiencing disability to participate in the wide variety of programs and activities available through THPRD. Please visit www.thprd.org/activities/adaptive-and-inclusive-recreation/inclusion-services to read more and find out how to place a request for inclusion services.
Why are there so few camps this summer?
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused the closure of many district facilities and resulted in a reduction in THPRD’s workforce. We do not currently have the staffing capacity to offer summer camps at the level we have provided in years past and it will take time to scale up our operations. We will scale up to additional programming as we can.
I tried to register for a camp, but was told I’m on the wait list. What does that mean?
Once a camp has filled, participants are put on a wait list based on the order their registration request was received. As spaces become available (whether through expansion of camps at the site, or in the event someone drops the camp), participants will be notified in the order they appear on the wait list and will be given 24 hours to confirm the spot is still desired. If we do not hear from you within 24 hours, we will move on to the next person. Please ensure that you keep your email and contact information up to date for this purpose.
What if a camp is cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances, like another statewide order closing summer camps?
Patrons will receive a refund if a camp is cancelled by THPRD due to compliance with a statewide closure order, or for some other reason, that requires the District to cancel the camp.
Is financial aid available?
Yes, the district has a financial aid program. To learn more please visit www.thprd.org/activities/financial-aid.

Summer Day Camps | YMCA Silicon Valley
Who is watching and caring for my child?
We are confident that we have the best staff around. Our staff is as diverse as our youth. The majority of them are college students and a small percentage are finishing high school. 80% of our staff are at least 18 years of age and older.
All program staff are fingerprinted and undergo background and reference checks. All staff are certified in basic or pediatric CPR, first aid and Child Protection Training.
Most importantly, our staff are people who love kids. They want to spend their time playing, teaching, and working with children. They are caring, energetic and responsible people with big hearts.
What training do staff receive?
All staff are required to attend 3 days of training prior to the first day of the program. The directors attend additional training.
In addition to learning all the policies and procedures of the YMCA of Silicon Valley Camping program, staff learn techniques for how to best interact with children and how to use positive discipline techniques. They also learn songs, games, skits, and arts & crafts projects.
Can YMCA staff babysit my child?
Although our staff work well with children, our child protection policy does not permit YMCA staff to babysit for families involved in our YMCA programs.
What if my child becomes ill or gets injured while at the program?
If your child becomes ill while at the program, our staff will contact you to pick him/ her up. If your child is injured, the staff will take whatever steps are necessary to obtain medical attention. Your child may be transported to the hospital by an ambulance or by a YMCA vehicle. All expenses for emergency medical care are the responsibility of the parent or guardian.
In the case that a camper develops COVID symptoms at camp, we will contact the family to pick up. The camper will be directed to an isolation room where they will await pick up. We are asking parents to pick up their child within the hour of our call for the safety of the child and other participants and staff.
What happens if my child has a discipline issue at the program?
Our staff are trained and are expected to resolve misbehaviors in a positive manner. Our staff speaks with the child, allows him/her to take time out to think about the issue, discuss the issue/solution with the child, then let the child return to the activity. In more severe cases, the child will be kept out of the activity and the parent will be asked to pick up the child. Together, parents and YMCA staff will work out a custom-designed behavior modification method depending on the severity of the issue.
In the event the issue persists, the child may be suspended or expelled from the program. Some acts may result in immediate suspension or expulsion, including but not limited to fighting, intentionally harming others, theft, and possession of weapons or drugs. Our policies do not grant refunds or credits for missed program days due to behavior issues.
What are the bathroom procedures?
No child is ever alone and no child is ever alone with a staff member. All children will take trips to the bathroom with the entire program and/or program groups escorted by staff. Children will only use bathrooms inspected for safety by staff.
What if I need to speak with my child while she/he is at the program?
We understand that urgent situations come up. If you should ever need to reach your child while s/he is at program, please call the site director for your location.
How do I communicate with the YMCA Staff?
Most communication can be done through contacting the site director and speaking directly with your child’s staff during drop-off and pickup each day. It is vital that you inform us of changes happening in your family. Such changes include moving, hospitalization of a sibling or
parent, altercations in the parent’s relationship, etc. These influence the way your child relates to others. Staff members can better provide for a child’s needs if they are aware of the situation. We will treat this information with the utmost confidence.
In case of an emergency:
If you need to get in touch with your child in case of a family emergency, call your program director. You can also email [email protected]
Sign In & Out Procedures
- We ask that parents/guardians not group or enter our program areas.
- Sign in/out will take place in a general area
- Parents will be asked to have one primary pick up person
- Parents will not enter the facility/campus at check in or out

Summer Camp : NYC Parks
The NYC Parks Summer Day Camp program is an exciting chance for children ages 6 to 13 to have a fun-filled summer! Campers engage in sports, fitness, and outdoor adventures while taking part in many of New York City’s rich cultural and educational opportunities.

Summer Camp – The Packer Collegiate Institute
We follow the guidelines set forth by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (NYCDOH) and will continue to adjust our protocols to adhere to them as camp approaches. Read more about our health and safety guidelines on our Camp Resources page.
Small Pod Groups for Social Distancing
Each grade level will be grouped into “pods” of six campers each. Pods will remain together for the entire week of camp activities and maintain social distance from all other pods wherever possible.
- Our PreK campers will be based at our Early Learning Center at 100 Clinton St.
- Our Kindergarten through Sixth Grade campers will be based at our main campus at 170 Joralemon St.
Masks must be worn by all staff and campers at all times, other than at lunch and snack time.
Pick-Up and Drop-Off Policies
Parents and Caregivers will not be allowed on the school grounds. We will have specific pick-up and drop-off instructions that will be provided closer to the beginning of camp.
Social Distance Requirements for Aftercamp
In order to reduce the risk of spread and to remain socially distant, campers will have to play separately from all other campers in Aftercamp, unless members from their own pods are present. Weather permitting, After Camp will be held outside to avoid non-essential indoor spaces.
Adjustments to Swim Program
We’re excited to offer instructional swim to all campers this summer. The CDC is not aware of any scientific reports of the virus that causes COVID-19 spreading to people through the water in pools; the COVID-19 virus is not waterborne, and pools are properly treated with chlorine.
Swim periods for campers will be run in accordance with state and local health department guidelines (which are subject to change). Safety protocols will include (but are not limited to) the following:
Cloth face masks will be required at all times except when swimming. Per CDC guidelines, cloth masks will not be used while in the swimming pool as a wet mask interferes with breathing.
All swim instructors will be required to wear face shields
Camper pods will remain together in designated ‘lanes’
Campers will be assigned spots in the pool and on the deck to maintain as much distance as is reasonably possible
Teachers will remain socially distant whenever it is safe and appropriate for the current activity (as per NY Health Department guidelines). When not safe or appropriate for the current activity, teachers may come within 6 feet of students with the following modifications:
Teachers will wear face shields when above water and within 6 feet of students
Teachers will position themselves and students in a way that minimizes direct, face-to-face contact whenever possible
Teachers will remove face shields and/or come within 6 feet of students whenever necessary to prevent the risk of drowning and/or physical injury
While swimming is a major component of our summer program, we understand that you may be uncomfortable with these guidelines and that you may not want your child in the water this summer. If you do not wish to have your child participate in swimming, we will offer a supervised, non swimming activity for them while their pod is at the pool.

All Camps at the Creation Museum90,000 Summer Day Camp – details.
One of the options for a child to spend the holidays is a summer day camp, or in other words, a city camp. Such a camp has its own characteristics that you should know about when choosing a type of rest. The first follows from the name itself – this is a camp in which children are only part of the day, and they spend the evening and night at home.
This is one of the most significant advantages if the child has never left his parents for a long time or left home.It can be difficult for children without such experience to immediately withstand a trip on a weekly, and even more so on a two- or three-week shift in the field camp. In this case, it may be unnecessary stress for him, and nothing but negative impressions will remain from him. And the summer day camp is just a kind of intermediate stage that allows the child to gradually get used to the intense program inherent in the camp, and to the fact that he does not see his parents for a long time.
Another advantage of the city camp is that it is held within the city, which makes it possible to include in the day’s program both cognitive walks and excursions that culturally develop the participants and allow them to get to know their hometown better.
A separate convenience of the day camp is related to the visiting schedule and cost. The fact is that such a camp does not have to be attended by a whole shift, parents have the opportunity to choose individual days of the program, successfully combine them with other plans for the summer, and also determine exactly how much they are willing to spend on the child’s cognitive recreation.
Thus, a summer day camp is one of the successful vacation alternatives that may be most suitable for both the child and the parents.
Alik Zagonov, psychologist at the 12 Collegia Training and Consulting Center.
More details about the City Camp “12 Collegia” can be found here.
90,000 School camp with day stay
Summer camp for schoolchildren is an opportunity to have fun and usefully. A school planning such leisure activities for children approaches this issue very responsibly and creatively, taking into account when developing its program that while having fun, you need to continue teaching children new useful knowledge and skills.
All activities in the summer camp are conceived and organized in such a way that they can involve absolutely all the children of the camp shift, leaving no one aside. This is especially important for those children who find it difficult to establish contacts with peers. Sometimes a summer school day camp can help a child cope with his psychological problems, because, unlike the usual school way, he learns to interact with children of different ages. That is why teachers and psychologists advise parents to take advantage of the opportunities provided by the day camp at school and help their own children enter the new school year more relaxed, extinguishing psychological difficulties.
Vacations are both a time of rest and a period of significant expansion of the child’s practical experience, creative assimilation of new information, its comprehension, the formation of new skills and abilities that form the basis of character, communication and communication abilities, life self-determination and moral orientation of the individual.
During the summer holidays, the tension accumulated during the year is released, the energy and health expended are restored, and the creative potential develops.
Most parents are faced with the question of how to give their children a full, properly organized summer vacation.
The most widespread form of organization of children remains summer health camps with a day stay, created at an educational institution. This is the cheapest and for many the only way out of the situation, especially in rural areas.After all, not everyone has the opportunity to send a child to suburban summer camps or to a sanatorium. Moreover, many children do not want to part with their parents for a long time.
When attending a school day camp, a child does not break away from his family, is under the supervision of teachers, is fed on time, is busy with interesting things, and in the evenings and on weekends he is with his family. For parents, it is also important that the teachers are employees of the school in which their child is studying and are well acquainted with them, so moms and dads are calm for their children.
Camp is a new way of life for children, a new regime with its special romantic style and tone. This is the time of games, entertainment, freedom in choosing activities, relieving the stress accumulated over the year, replenishing the expended forces, restoring health. This is a period of free communication between children.90,000 Summer Day Camp in Lipetsk – “Rita” – Children’s Center No. 1 in Lipetsk
