Shai Covid Cleaning

Covid-19 Safety Precautions

In the summer of 2020, JCC Camp Shai was challenged to meet the needs of a community facing the pandemic of COVID-19. We were able to offer a program that balanced the extreme health and safety guidelines, while giving our campers a sense of normalcy the best way we know how: through the magic of camp! Taking what we learned from summer 2020, we are prepared to apply the same precautions and guidelines to our program for the summer 2021: small group size of ten campers, universal mask wearing by staff and campers, social distancing measures, hand washing, daily health screening, and regular sanitizing of surfaces. While these measures seem extreme at first, our Camp Shai community is a resilient one! Our campers proudly wore their face masks and kept the camp spirit alive! We know that this camp spirit will continue no matter what new challenges and guidelines 2021 brings us.

At Camp Shai, we take COVID-19 precautions extremely seriously and operate within state health guidelines and best practices as determined by CDC, Colorado Department of Health and Environment, and the American Camping Association. The precautions we take include:

Shai Covid Icons Masks

Face Masks

Universal mask wearing will be practiced by all campers and staff for all activities indoors or outdoors, except swimming.

Shai Covid Icons SmallGroups

Small Groups & Cohorting

To limit the potential spread of COVID-19, campers and staff will stay in consistent groups at all times throughout the camp day and camp session. Group sizes will never exceed 10 campers, unless this recommendation is modified by the CDC.

Shai Covid Icons Screenings

Daily Health Screenings

Campers and staff will complete a health screen before the start of every camp day. This will include a temperature check and a short questionnaire. Mid-way through each camp day, staff members will complete another health check on their campers.

Being Outdoors! 

We will hold as many activities as possible outdoors in the open air to increase air circulation. In classrooms, all rooms have air purifiers as well as clean and well-functioning HVAC systems.
