Summer Camp Covid Policy   
June 2021

Deirdre McAuliffe, RN Delbarton School Nurse, is COVID contact person, 973-538-3231 x3080, cell 973-350-6110 or  She will be in contact with Kathy Whitehead, Morris Township Board of Health Public Health Nurse, should there be a positive COVID case during camp. Our plans are to shut down the specific camp activity for the rest of the week if there is a positive COVID case identified in that activity during the week. 

  1. Daily Screenings- for all campers and all staff must be done daily on the SchoolPass app. This is important to prevent anyone with any COVID-like symptoms from arriving at camp. Important to STAY HOME IF ILL.

  2. Masks- In a nutshell, no masks outdoors, unvaccinated masks indoors

    1. CAMPERS OUTSIDE: No masks, regardless of vaccination status, but should stay in their cohorts, which for our purposes, means their sports camp group. 

    2. CAMPERS INDOORS: unvaccinated should wear their masks, vaccinated campers do not need to wear masks indoors. 

  3. Cohorts- Students are separated by camp activity into cohorts, separate for meals in outdoors tents. There will not be any camp-wide gatherings in the gym or cafeteria this year. 

  4. Drop off and pick up will be at the field, not at a central meeting place this year. Attendance and early dismissal will be through the SchoolPass app. 

  5. Illness during the day - If a camper or staff member complains of any illness, such as sore throat, cough, shortness of breath, fever, nasal congestion, headache, fatigue, please accompany them to the nurse’s office for further evaluation. They will be placed in our isolation room in the old quiet study to await parent pickup.  If anyone, camper or staff,  is sent home due to possible infectious illness, they must have a negative COVID test to return. Campers may not go by themselves to the nurse's office in Trinity Hall, must be accompanied by a counselor or staff member.

  6. Hand Hygiene sanitizer will be provided in many locations on campus and at each camp. Encourage students to use it frequently, especially before and after meals, and after using the restroom. 

  7. Cover Cough and use tissues for their nose, not their sleeve, and throw tissues in the garbage after use, then hand sanitizer or wash hands. Tissues will be provided to all camp locations. 

  8. Inclement Weather- if campers have to move inside due to inclement weather or extreme heat, they must remain in their cohorts, and maintain social distancing from other camp groups.  Seats in FAC are marked with green dots to denote 6 foot distances. 

  9. Water Coolers- for refilling water bottles, should be done by camp counselors. Sanitize hands before and after refilling water. 

Please don't hesitate to contact our school nurse(who will be on staff this summer) if you have any questions or concerns.  If you need to get in touch with the camp directors or your son/daughter during the day, please call the Summer Programs Registrar, Connie Curnow at 973-538-3231 x3019. She will contact us immediately and we will return your call as soon as possible. 

We will have available a list on the first day of classes of all students, by town, of those who are interested in carpooling.

NOTE: If you are bringing food from home, it must be peanut/tree nut free.
