COVID – 19 has altered our plans for this summer, but we were determined to still provide our community with a quality summer camp experience. For this summer only, we have shorted our day so you can chose from a morning, or afternoon 3 hour program (They are exactly the same). The morning will run from 9 am – 12 pm and the afternoon from 1- 4 pm.
Safety is our number one priority so we have taken time to ensure that we we will do this right. We have re-designed our program to adhere to all the new guidelines of the CDC and New York Board of Health. Our plan is to run a different type of program so that we can adhere to every single social distancing and health code, while giving your child the opportunity to socialize, run outside, swim, learn arts and enjoy athletics. We simply want to give kids the freedom to be kids!
The program includes:
Our campers swim in our two on-site swimming pools each day–participating in both instructional and free swim. Our swim program helps campers feel comfortable and safe in the water and teaches basic swim skills. We have a low staff to camper ratio for our swim lessons, allowing each camper to receive individualized care and instruction in the water. Our aquatics staff are all American Red Cross certified Lifeguards and our Aquatics Director has additional certifications, including Water Safety Instructor.
Our athletics program is designed to have our campers explore fitness while experimenting with different types of sports in a safe environment. In our one week program we will only be doing drills and non-competitive sports. We will use fun games to help the campers become more comfortable with the sport or activity of the day.
Creativity and the ability to express oneself are integral parts of the Sprout Westchester experience. Campers will have the opportunity to work with our artist in resident and produce at least two different types of projects during their week.
Nature / Animals:
Campers will have the opportunity to visit our petting zoo, spend time in our organic garden and explore the natural environment.
Due to social distancing restrictions and the limited programming we are offering, our program is only open to campers entering 1st grade through 7th grade.
We apologize to our younger campers, and hope to see you again in the summer of 2021.
The group sizes will be 10 campers to adhere to social distancing. The groups will remain in the same self-contained pod for the entire week and not mix with other group to avoid exposure.
Unfortunately we will not have any large camp events this year- but we will be having many small group fun days, so the spirit of camp will not be lost.
TRANSPORTATION, FOOD SERVICE & SNACK
We will not be able to provide transportation. There is no lunch service provided at camp. Campers need to bring a nut free snack with them to camp each day.
