COVID-19 FAQ

Camp Gan Izzy will be closely monitoring the Covid 19 status in the months and weeks before camp. We will be following all CDC and ACA guidelines that will be recommended at the time we hold our camp program. Any changes to our regular program and guidelines will be communicated in the weeks before camp.

What Are Some Of The Changes We Can Expect In Camp This Summer And What Is CGI Doing To Mitigate The Risks?

While this summer program will look very different from what our families are used to, we will still operate our camp using our three guiding principles: ‘Safe. Fun. Jewish.’

Obviously, a major focus of this summer will be safety. At this point, based on current CDC and ACA guidelines, we will have the following changes:

There will be no bus transportation or extended care;

There will be no trips (excluding hiking by Los Liones and the beach);

There will be no swimming (we will have alternative water activities);

The majority of the camp day will be spent outdoors;

We will not be offering daily options so that we can keep our cohorts as stable as possible. There will also be a minimum of 2 consecutive weeks;

We will be limiting the size of each group;

We will not be allowing visitors or parents on to the campus;

Parents will not be allowed to accompany their child/children on to campus;

Campers and staff will have their temperatures taken and be screened daily for symptoms;

There will be an additional waiver that addresses the COVID-19 pandemic.

LA County requires children 2 and older to wear a mask and we do too. 🙂

 

Will My Child/Children Have To Socially Distance From Their Peers?

Based on our current guidance, campers within one group/cohort will be allowed to intermingle more closely than 6’, but will continue to sanitize, wash and clean before and after activities.
