covid-19 response

Guidance

We are taking serious precautions formed from communication with local health officials and guidance from the CDC and the American Camping Association. Our primary responsibility is to ensure the health and safety of staff and campers above all else. 

Updated Schedule

Camps were not able to open until July 4, causing the following changes to be made to our camp schedule:

Session 1 - CANCELLED

Session 2 - Saturday, July 4 to Friday, July 10

(More updates on session 2)

Our Plan

After much communication and many revisions, we have created a full plan detailing all of the procedures put in place to keep children and staff safe during this global pandemic: 

COVID-19 Health and Safety Plan

LIFE AT CAMP

​Constant Activities

Campers are engaged in various activities all day at Englishton Park. They are rewarded based on improvements made day-to-day, like focusing on the teacher and actively participating. Each activity gives the children an opportunity to learn about subjects they struggle with in school and be active while they do it. 

Education

Every camp activity is combined with a lesson that is taught in school. An academic lesson is taught and then reinforced during a fun camp activity. Results have shown that this system of teaching is more beneficial as the children seem to react negatively toward classroom learning. It has shown that rewarding children for doing what they are asked or for doing well improves their perception of in-class learning.

Apart from the group activities, teacher/tutor therapists keep written records on every single child to focus on what they need to work on the most. The curriculum created here is also used for 1-on-1 tutoring during the day in specific areas for each camper. This way, children learn how to work both individually and in groups and grow enthusiasm around classroom learning.
