Club SciKidz Richmond 2021 Safety Measures

Please click on any of the following for more details.

We believe that your children need summer camp, now more than ever!  Our summer 2021 schedule is being finalized and registration will go live online as soon as possible.

We are taking increased health and safety measures-for your child, our other campers, and our staff. All campers must follow posted instructions and guidelines provided to you while attending Club SciKidz Richmond camps.  These guidelines may be updated at any time as we receive updated information from the CDC, ACA, or other officials or industry leaders.

Let's keep each other healthy and safe. Let's do our part and have FUN!

Keep it Clean!

Club SciKidz Staff and host location custodial staff will clean classrooms, common spaces, and high-touch items (door knobs, restrooms) daily using EPA-approved disinfectants.  Each camper's belongings will be kept separate in the classroom.  Sharing of materials will be minimized to the extent possible (limit use of supplies and equipment to one group of campers at a time and clean and disinfect between use).

Carpool Line

To limit exposure, we will be doing curbside check-in/check-out each day. Parents will not need to exit their car.  Detailed instructions will be emailed the week prior to camp. 

Screener Questions

Screener Questions

Each staff member and parent will be asked health screening questions daily upon arrival regarding symptoms.  Screener questions will be emailed the week prior to camp.  

Thermometer Temperature Checks

Temp Checks

Every staff member and camper will have their temperature checked daily upon arrival using infrared thermometers. Camper temperatures will be checked curbside before parent/guardian leaves. Anyone with an elevated temperature per CDC guidelines will be asked to stay home.

Wash Those Hands!

Campers will be required to wash their hands with soap and water, or use hand sanitizer, at the following times: morning dropoff, before and after eating, after using the restroom, after coughing/sneezing/blowing their nose, after outdoor time, and at least once an hour in the classroom. 

Self-Contained Classes

Class sizes will be limited to no more than 10 students max. Desks will be separated as much as physically possible in
the classrooms to maximize social distancing. Campers will stay with their classes throughout the camp week and will not mingle with other classes or larger groups.

Isolation Space

We will continue our standard practice of keeping any camper who exhibits symptoms, of any kind, during the camp day separate from others until a parent can pick them up.  The camper will be required to wear a face covering until picked up.  Any surfaces the camper came into contact with will be disinfected immediately.  Parents of any students that had direct contact will be notified immediately.

Staff Training

Our staff will be fully trained to properly clean and sanitize their classrooms according to current CDC guidelines.  Additionally, they will monitor their campers' health daily to proactively identify any potential Covid symptoms.

Social Distancing

Six-foot social distancing will be followed as much as possible. Campers will stay with their classes throughout the day and will not mix in large groups. Group activities will be limited and students will not gather with campers outside of their class. Activities requiring campers to work in partners will be limited when possible.  Weather permitting, we will encourage staff to do lessons/experiments outdoors in shaded areas.

Face Masks

*UPDATE 6/28/20: per recent county ordinance, all people 10+ will be required to wear a face mask when social distancing is not feasible.

Campers face masks are optional but encouraged.  As of 5/26/20, current CDC guidelines recommend the use of face coverings for everyone over the age of 2.  We highly encourage parents to discuss this with their camper prior to camp. At this time, Club SciKidz will not provide face masks for campers.  

Consistent with many employers across the state, our staff will wear face masks indoors and outdoors if social distancing protocols cannot be maintained.  



Posters will be displayed throughout the campus reminding all to use healthy practice to stop the spread of germs.


CDC Info

Based on available evidence, the CDC continues to maintain that children do not appear to be at higher risk for COVID-19 than adults. While some children have been sick with COVID-19, adults make up most of the known cases to date.  Visit their page for more information.  An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. By attending Club SciKidz Richmond camps, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.
