SUMMER PROGRAMS 2020

SAFETY PROCEDURES YOU CAN EXPECT

Safety is the number one priority of Boys & Girls Clubs of Southwest Washington, and we are doing everything possible to keep children, staff, and volunteers protected from the COVID-19 virus.  We continue to monitor all updates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Washington State Department of Health, and Clark County Public Health for updated information. We are advising all staff, families, and youth to take precautions recommended by the Center for Disease Control.

Group Sizes

In compliance with guidelines from our state and local health departments, Clubs will operate with a 2:8 ratio (two staff members to every eight youth), limiting groups to 10 people or fewer. Groups will stay in separate program areas, and Club staff will be utilizing masks and gloves. Youth will receive an overview of safety information daily, as well as strict guidelines for hand washing and sanitation procedures.

Check-in and drop-off procedures

Each day all members, staff, family and guests entering the building will be required to comply with check-in safety measures, including but not limited to temperature checks, a verbal health screening, and sanitation procedures.

Registration Process

Registration for Summer 2020 will be on a limited basis by invitation only. Families who are eligible for enrollment will be contacted by their Club for information. Eligibility for enrollment is based on multiple factors, prioritizing 2019-2020 school year families deemed as essential workers in Washington State.

Attendance schedules will need to include days of attendance and drop-off and pick-up times. In an effort to maintain a consistent and safe environment, we are prioritizing families that will attend daily and requiring all members to attend a minimum of 3 days per week.

Parental Waiver

Parents/Guardians will be required to sign a waiver at the time of enrollment, indicating that they will not hold Boys & Girls Clubs of Southwest Washington liable for the risks of bringing their child/children to the facility.

Daily Fee*                                           $10day/child (grades 1-5)

Daily fees will be due at a minimum of 2 weeks in advance to ensure safe and appropriate ratios and group sizes. In addition to daily fees, all families will be required to provide an attendance schedule at the time of payment.

*A reduced rate of $5/child/day is available for families who qualify for Free or Reduced Lunch.
