The Believe in Books Youth Theatre Summer Camp will be occurring this summer!

See below for the new protocols.

 

Each camp session will be limited to 30 campers. All previous campers/BIBYT participants are welcome to register along with any students in SAU9, SAU13 & MSAD72.

 

Families of campers will receive the invoice, along with additional information and guidelines via email at least 2 weeks prior to the beginning of their camp.  All forms must be completed, and emailed/mailed back to the BIBLF office at PO Box 1800, Intervale, NH 03845 and received by the Wednesday before the start of camp.

 

Camper Drop Off / Pick Up Protocols:

  • Campers will be dropped off and picked up at the top of the stairs in the upper theater parking lot.  Drop offs will occur with one camper/family at a time.  We ask all parents/guardians dropping or picking up campers to please remain in the vehicle and please wait in the que line
  • Following NH State and CDC Guidelines, each camper will have a health screening daily which will include a symptom questionnaire and temperature check.  Camp Director and counselors will wear masks and gloves during daily health screenings.
  • Parents/Guardians will not be permitted to leave until their camper has been deemed healthy to stay.  Parents/Guardians will not be permitted to leave their car or to go into the theater during either drop off or pick up times.
  • Pick up will occur in the same fashion as drop off at the top of the stairs in the upper theater parking lot, one child/family at a time.

 

During Camp Protocols:

  • Campers will need to bring their own water bottle, lunch, and afternoon snack and will not be permitted to share with any other campers unless they are siblings/share same household.
  • Campers will be assigned a camp counselor which they will remain with through each day.  Groups will not co-mingle.
  • Campers are not required to wear a mask but should bring one when social distancing is not possible.  Camp counselors will be required to wear masks during drop off and pick up times and when social distancing is not possible.
  • Constant reinforcement of hand washing and practicing social distancing will occur each day.
  • As usual, daily activities will occur outside when possible.

 

Illness Protocols:

  • If a camper reports symptom, parents/guardians/emergency contact will be called and campers will be separated to a designated area until they can be picked up.
  • If a camp staff member reports symptom while at camp, they will be sent home immediately.
  • If a camper or staff member who has been in the camp is diagnosed with COVID-19, the camp will notify The Bureau of Infection Disease Control, families, and staff of the program about the exposure.

 

Our goal is to safely engage our campers in the world of story-telling and the performing arts.  If you have any additional concerns, please reach out to Camp Director, Nate Sawyer.
