OUTDOOR CAMP@TG will be filled with various activities from movement, outdoor play, and water play. To give campers the opportunity to cool down, we will have tents for our small groups to take turns doing crafts, snack time, as well as a quiet time activity. Campers will be able to utilize the restrooms in TG2, as well as the cubby space as storage for their belongings.
Troy Gym is taking our response to COVID-19 seriously. We want to ensure that our guests, their families, and our staff are being provided with safe procedures. Here is how we will keep your camper safe during their visit:
When registering, you will register for the time frame that best fits your needs (morning, full day, afternoon), you will register for a specific color group. Siblings must be in the same group to keep household members together.
Enrolling for camp must be completed by 9AM the day prior to the camp day. This will allow for staff to have their group information prior to the start of the camp day. Our office will not be open for regular business. However, our office manager and camp director will be on site to help answer any questions. All enrollment will be done through our website, as our office is currently closed.
Our staff will be wearing masks whenever they cannot be socially distant from their campers. Campers will be required to wear a mask while doing their craft, going inside to use the restroom, change into their bathing suit or get their snack/lunch. They will not be required when doing physical activity or eating their snacks or lunch.
Parents will complete a health check for their child prior to checking their child in. There is a link on our website to complete this health check. It will be required for each day campers attend. Additionally, the guardian dropping of the camper, and the camper will have their temperature taken prior to dropping off. If either person’s temperature is above 100.4*, they will not be able to attend camp that day, or for the next 48 hours.
Staff will be following this same protocol.
Guardians must accompany campers to check in and get a wrist band. During check in, campers and guardians will be asked to socially distance in line.
Children and staff will be required to wash their hands or use hand sanitizer between activities. Activities will be disinfected between groups of children.
We will be offering camps to children ages 5 and older, as these age groups will be more understanding of social distancing, as well as wearing a mask.
Changes to Camp for August 2020:
We will not be offering before or aftercare. Drop off can occur up to 15 minutes prior to the campers start time. Any sooner, the guardian will be asked to stay. We ask that guardians are timely with their pickup so our camp staff can utilize their designated end of shift time completing their duties. Late pick ups will result in an additional charge.
We will not be utilizing the water inflatable this year. However, we do have a sprinkler and various water toys and water balloons that the children can use during our water play portion of the day.
Groups will not be co-mingling. Each group will stay separate from one another throughout the day. We will have a staggered schedule to allow for each group to experience each activity safely.
We will be doing crafts each day. However, we will be forgoing the weekly themed camp crafts for the month of August. We will be planning crafts that will allow for individual use of materials for each segment (i.e. craft kits, pre-divided markers, etc.).
All campers must have an online registration form completed by a parent or legal guardian on file and up-to-date registration fees. Click the register online button below. No refunds for camp. If you can no longer attend camp for the day that you signed up for you can switch to a different day to attend camp. You must call and switch the day prior to the day you can't attend.
We follow the Troy School Districts calendar for the children's dates.
Please note: due to the nature of outdoor camps, in the event of strong storms and/or thunderstorms we will cancel camps and leave a credit on your account. All communication from Troy Gym will be made through email. All payments toward camps are non-refundable per our refund policy. Campers who are not well, are able to cancel their camp day up until 30 minutes into the day of camp in which they are registered to receive a credit. No call, no show campers will not be issued a credit for absences. Campers annual $25 registration fee will need to be current for participation. Additionally, families will sign off on Troy Gym’s new online waiver. This will be prompted at time of registration.
