Take a Camp Kelley virtual tour! Coach Jordan and Coach Erin will take you through the commonly used places for campers. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for the password.
Please note: these tours show the flow of summer day camp. Afterschool is similar, but not the same. These tours are a great tool to show your child check-in, pick-up and the locker rooms. Coaches will be there to escort your child through every step.
Below you will find an update from our CEO
Our CEO, Shae Wilson-Gregg, participated on a call with the CDC earlier this week that was designed for YMCA CEO’s and summer camp personnel. To adhere to their recommendations for summer camps we are making changes to our day camp schedule. Regulations are changing daily and we are diligently working to ensure we are following protocol to keep your child(ren) safe and healthy. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience. Please know that we are doing our absolute best to provide the best summer for our campers.
Fever Screenings: All campers and day camp staff will be required to participate in the fever screening process daily. Fever screening for staff members will be conducted before clocking in and campers will be screened at their cars. Anyone with a fever of 100.4 or above will not be allowed to remain at camp and must be fever free for 72 hours before returning. Please note: all members and people entering our facility will go through the fever screening process.
Hours of Day Camp: Hours of day camp will be adjusted. Adjusted hours will help camp staff with social distancing and cleaning policies.
Check-In: Check-In will be held between 8:15am and 9:30am ONLY. Due to the highly recommended fever screening policy we will limit our check-in process to 1 hour and 15 minutes. We will not be able to check in campers after 9:30am. Special requests can be made, however, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to honor them.
Check-Out: Check-Out will be held between 4:30pm and 5:45pm. All campers must be picked up by 5:45pm.
We understand that these adjustments may be hard for some families. If you need to cancel or change your child’s registration due to the information above, please email email@example.com and we will work with you. We will continue to email updates as the CDC and DPH release guidelines and recommendations.
