COVID-19 Policies 

At Metro Media Summer Camp, we put the health and safety of our campers first.

Due to the development of COVID-19, our staff wants to assure you that this is our number one priority and extra precautions will be taken to ensure our campers and staff remain healthy.

Our staff has made all proper CDC-certified steps to provide a clean and safe summer session for our campers.

Smaller Groups:

We will ensure that campers will be working in smaller groups to comply with the state-set guidelines and to allow for proper social distancing.

Daily Temperature Checks:

Temperatures of every camper and staff member will be taken before entering the building.

Dismissal from Activity:

If any staff member or camper experiences sickness or feels ill, we urge them to stay home and/or will dismiss them for the day.

Cleaning and Hygiene 

Hand sanitizer, tissues, and wipes will be available in all areas and workstations to allow for frequent use.

Hand-washing will occur between activities or when a camper leaves their workstation.

All surfaces will be sanitized frequently throughout the day and a deeper cleaning will take place at the end of each day.

Computers, keyboards, mice, monitors, and chairs will be wiped down between uses and before and after any food is consumed.

Masks and Social Distancing

All staff members will wear masks throughout the entire day and we urge campers to do the same whenever possible (exceptions include when eating, filming, etc.).

Campers' workstations will be six feet apart and if they work together on a project, they will wear the necessary face coverings.

We encourage campers to bring their own personalized water bottles this year to prevent the possibility of mixing bottles and spreading germs.

We will provide fresh purified water to refill their containers. Water bottles will still be available when needed. Campers should also bring their lunch to prevent the possible spread of COVID-19 from delivery of ordered food.

 

Metro Media Camp staff will continuously monitor the NJ COVID-19 dashboard, which includes complying with all regulations as they are released.
