Winter Break Camp
As you all know, everything about this year has been different than previous years. Understanding there’s a community need for childcare as parents continue to work, we are pleased to be able to still offer winter break camp this year..
This page has been updated with information regarding how winter camp will operate this year, following state-licensing requirements and county and state public health orders.
Due to group size, social distancing and space requirements, camp will remain at the Wheat Ridge Recreation Center, 4005 Kipling St.
Campers will be divided into four groups of 10 or fewer which will remain consistent throughout winter break. Each group will have their own dedicated home room.
Campers within the group will need to practice social distancing as much as possible. Exceptions are for siblings or children who reside in the same household. Staff will help facilitate this as much as possible.
Per city, county and state requirements, all campers and staff will be required to wear face masks. Each camper will need to bring two face masks with them every day. Parents or adults will also be required to wear a face mask when dropping off or picking up kids.
Staff are working hard to come up with creative solutions to still provide fun activities for your child(ren), like art and science projects, team building activities, gym games, and outdoor time at nearby playgrounds and/or walks along the greenbelt (weather permitting). We also have reserved swimming time designated for each group throughout the winter break.
Our friendly and energetic staff know how to have fun, yet our first priority will always be the health and safety of your child. All camp staff are required to complete 22 hours of training annually, and are American Red Cross First Aid and CPR/AED Certified. Whether your child is attending camp for the first time or returning for the fifth summer in a row, thank you for choosing and trusting us to care for your child!
