COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update
We understand that this is a stressful period and hope that the below information helps to clarify what Code Camp are doing to keep children and staff safe at camp.
Our number one priority at Code Camp has always been and still is to keep students safe. If at any time we feel that we cannot provide a safe environment we will not continue with the program as planned.
We have been following Government advice regarding the coronavirus and how schools should operate during this period. We have implemented many new policies and approaches that children will be used to following at their school (listed below). As each Code Camp venue has a greatly reduced number of children in attendance at camp when compared to a normal school day, we are confident that the procedures rolled out by most schools will be easier to navigate at Code Camp with the reduced student numbers.
The following practices will be actioned at all of our holiday camp locations:
- Parents/carers/siblings will be asked not to enter the premises. Our Camp Managers will sign the children in on the perimeter or at a gate. Exact drop off locations will be specified 1 week prior to camp.
- Our team will be wearing masks (where required, as per government regulations)
- We will be taking the temperature (using contactless thermometers) of all students and staff upon camp entry (where required by government regulations).
- If required, classroom sizes and desks will be rearranged to provide maximum distance between each child.
- Computers will be cleaned with antibacterial wipes at the start and end of each day.
- Each student will have a device allocated to them for the whole camp if they have not brought their own.
- Students will be escorted to handwashing facilities at the start of the day, before recess and lunch.
- Students and staff will be asked to use hand sanitiser throughout the day.
- Additional soap, sanitiser, wipes and tissues will be available to every student.
- As usual, we will be adhering to our strict no food or drink sharing policy and, where possible, we will arrange staggered break times.
- Our staff have been reminded of the symptoms so they can raise any concerns about students’ or their own well-being.
- Students will be briefed each day by the Camp Manager so they are reminded of the different measures being put in place.
We are constantly keeping up to date with updated Government guidelines to ensure our students remain safe at our camps. If a camp location needs to be postponed, we will reach out to all enrolled parents to discuss alternative locations, credits and refunds for the students.
We look forward to seeing your child at camp and if you have any further questions in the meantime, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
