SAFETY PROTOCOLS

2021’s Zoo Summer Camp experience will look a little different from previous years as we strive to provide the highest quality and safest camp experience possible. Audubon will be offering a smaller format and more personalized camp experience by limiting the number of campers each week. Updated safety policies and procedures include:

FACE MASKS

Face coverings are required for all children throughout the camp day.
Mask breaks will be taken when outdoors and when social distancing can be maintained.

GROUPS

Groups of children six-years-old and older will be limited to at 16 campers per group with a 1:8 instructor ratio. Groups of four to six-year-olds will be capped at 18 campers per group with a 1:6 instructor ratio.
Zoo Campers will be kept within their group – like a school pod – throughout the week to reduce potential exposures to illness.

SIBLINGS

If siblings or children who share a household are registered for the same week of camp, they will be assigned to the same group.

CLEANING

Cleanliness of classrooms and equipment will maintained daily in accordance with CDC guidelines and recommendations.
If there is a reported case of COVID-19 within your camper’s group, we will immediately notify the designated guardian, send campers home, and issue pro-rated refunds for any missed days of camp.
