Summer Camp 2021

kids with masksThe top priority at the Urban Ecology Center is the health and safety of our communities and staff. As the globe continues through the COVID-19 pandemic and we look forward to summer camps, we anticipate COVID-19 practices continuing to mitigate the risk of disease spread in our daily camp protocols. Urban Ecology Center continues monitoring local and public health guidelines and anticipate there may be some changes aligned within our protocols as camp dates near.


All campers and staff are required to wear masks indoors and outdoors when 6 feet of physical distance cannot be maintained. Masks are required for children ages 3 and over, unless health conditions prohibit mask-wearing.

Daily Health Assessments:

Touchless thermometers will be used to check temperatures of all staff and campers daily at entry. Health assessment forms will also be completed for every camper who reports for camp. We ask that families and campers remain home if feeling ill or have symptoms aligned with COVID-19, or have been in contact with someone with COVID-19 within 14 days prior to attending.

Hand Washing and Sanitizing:

Hand sanitizer and hand washing will be available to campers throughout the day. If you wish to provide hand sanitizer for your child, please label it with your child’s name and give it to the camp staff so it can be properly stored.

Outdoor Program Focus:

Program activities will be held outdoors as often as possible (weather permitting). Please dress your child for outdoor exploration and fitting for the weather.


Camps are planned strategically with assigned indoor spaces and traffic flows to avoid close contact of different groups. Cleaning regimes include regular sanitization and disinfection of common use surfaces and spaces to mitigate potential surface spread.
