Covid-Safe Practices

All City of Santa Fe youth program participants will be required to follow all Covid-Safe Practices while attending a City-sponsored camp or program.

The safety of our campers and staff is our top priority and we take this responsibility very seriously. Our safety protocols and polices follow local City and County rules, and incorporate the latest recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Policies and procedures are subject to change as guidance evolves to fit the current situation.

*Mask and Face Coverings

Masks/face coverings are optional at this time.

Sick Child Policy

  • Vomiting

  • Diarrhea – 2 or 3 loose stools in a short time

  • Cold symptoms

  • Undiagnosed rash on the body

  • Cloudy discharge from the eye(s)

  • Any communicable disease

 A doctor’s note must be presented when a child is sent home with these symptoms.

We require that children not return to the program until symptoms are no longer contagious and have been gone for 24 hours.
