Camp Rinconada

Camp Rinconada

Camp Rinconada is the perfect summer option for kids looking to stay busy and swim a little. A child’s swim level is assessed on the first day of camp, and campers with similar abilities are grouped together. More advanced swimmers also get a workout-style swim session in a 25-yard format to practice what they have learned. Kids Camp is for kids ages 7-12.

Crafts
Everyday there will be small “crafts” such as coloring/drawing or bracelet/lanyards. Once per week there will be a larger craft project such as popsicle stick bridge/tower building.

Field
Our typical field activities will use soccer balls, wiffle ball/bat, frisbee, etc. Also, every Friday will be water balloons.

Water time
Each group will be in open swim for 45 minutes. Water toys such as dive rings will be provided. During that 45 minute block students, in turn, will move into the lesson lanes for their 15 minute lesson. So technically, they will only get 30 min of open swim on these days.

Safety Protocols For COVID-19
Camps will be carried out in stable groups of 12 or fewer children (“stable” means that the same 12 or fewer children are in the same group each day and for at least two consecutive weeks). No child will be added to the group if a child does not come to camp. These groups will remain the same for 2 weeks including staff.

Children shall not change from one group to another or attend more than one childcare establishment, summer camp, other educational or recreational instruction or program simultaneously.

If more than one group of children is at one facility, each group shall be in separate rooms or spaces that cannot be accessed by children or adults outside the stable group. Groups shall not mix with each other.

Providers, educators, and other staff cannot serve more than one group of children and shall remain solely with that group of children during the duration of the childcare establishment, summer camp, other educational or recreational institution or program.

Children and staff will be required to wear masks at all times except when in the pool or eating

Children and staff will maintain 6 feet of distance

Locker rooms will be closed. One bathroom will be available for use that will be disinfected between each use

Children and staff will be required to stay home if they show any symptoms of illness
