Our summer camps operate to create fun and positive experiences for every camper in our program. Our camps offers a variety of activities including, but not limited to, indoor/outdoor games, sports, arts & crafts, field trips, swimming, volunteer opportunities, and visits from special guests. We work hard to create an environment that is not only fun, but safe as well.
COR Camps program is all about the camper. Our program, facilities, and staff are focused on enriching the camper with fun and memorable recreational camping experiences.
Our core values are honesty, caring, responsibility, and respect.
Our camp instills character and cultivates creativity through learning and physical activity, translating into FUN!
Our program welcomes campers of diverse backgrounds and abilities. Though we do our best to provide services necessary for all campers, we are not able to provide one-in-one care to those campers that need additional care. Any campers requiring assistance with matters not directly related to camp activities and needing additional care (i.e. toileting, feeding, etc.) must bring a chaperone/aide while attending camp.
COVID and Camp
Since the announcement from the Governor’s office allowing camps to reopen on May 31, City staff have been working diligently to prepare for camp. Along with hiring and training camp staff, City staff have been working to modify camp programming to follow the guidelines from the Governor’s office.
We are pleased to announce that Kinder, Elementary and Playground camps will open on June 15. Teen Camp has been cancelled for Summer 2020.
Here are some safety precautions that you will see for camps to ensure campers and staff’s safety:
- Field Trips will not occur through the summer due to camp and childcare guidelines, but guest programs and speakers will be brought to camp when possible. Additional programs will be added to ensure a fun filled camp.
- Require pickup and drop-off of children outside of the operation (curbside), unless its determined that there is a legitimate need for the parent to enter the facility.
- Parents will need to fill out and turn in the attached pre-screening form on the first day of camp.
- Before allowing entry into the operation, screen all individuals, including taking the temperature of each person upon arrival at the operation each day, and deny entry to any person who meets any of the following criteria:
- A temperature of 100.4°F or above;
- Signs or symptoms of a respiratory infection, such as a cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, and low-grade fever;
- In the previous 14 days has had contact with someone with a confirmed diagnosis of COVID-19; is under investigation for COVID-19; or is ill with a respiratory illness; or
- In the previous 14 days has travelled internationally to countries with widespread, sustained community transmission. For updated information on affected countries, visit: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-nCoV/travelers/index.html.
- Children will be in groups of 10:1 ratio or less as dictated by the room space available. Groups of children and counselors will remain consistent throughout the week.
- There will be minimal mixing between groups.
- We will ensure children and staff are washing hands throughout the day.
- Face coverings will be required for camp when social distancing is unable to be ensured or enforced (campers and staff can wear face masks all day as well).
- Will avoid sharing items such as craft supplies, toys and games.
- Water fountains will be avoided, we will ask each child to bring a reusable water bottle with their name clearly labeled that can be refilled throughout the day.
- Groups will maintain a 6 ft or more distance from each other.
- There will be an additional staff member cleaning throughout the entire day.
- Camper’s belongings will be separated from other camper’s supplies.
