Mask Policy

  • Staff are required to wear face coverings at all times, even if fully vaccinated, to model wearing a face covering when with children/campers at times when children/campers must wear face coverings.

  • Staff who are fully vaccinated (for two weeks) and have a copy of their COVID-19 vaccine card on file with the department, can remove their face coverings when outside and at least 15 feet away from campers and not engaging in any camp activities (i.e., on break, before/after shift, etc.).

  • Veterans Park Complex is considered an outdoor public space.  Therefore, campers will be required to wear a face-covering at all times unless they are socially distanced 6 ft. apart from one another, eating, drinking, showering, or participating in water activities/play.

  • Campers must wear masks at all times when inside unless they are socially distanced 6 ft. apart from one another.  This includes restrooms with multiple stalls.

  • Campers will be given mask breaks when indoors and outdoors throughout the day.

  • Campers should bring a second face covering with them, in the event theirs becomes soiled, damp, etc., throughout the day.

  • Acceptable face coverings for COVID-19 include but are not limited to cloth-based 2-ply face coverings and disposable masks that securely cover both the mouth and nose (bandanas, buffs and face shields are not acceptable face coverings).

  • If your camper cannot tolerate a face covering, you must provide a doctor’s note which states the campers name, the reason they cannot tolerate the face covering, and the dates to/from that they cannot tolerate the face covering. This note must be submitted to lmasset@twsny.org a minimum of one week before the camper attends the program.

  • The mask policy could change at any time, with no notice or warning. 

COVID-19 Symptoms Policy 
Parents/Guardians must pre-screen their campers for signs/symptoms of COVID-19 each day within one hour prior to dropping your camper off.  Parents/Guardians must ensure that their camper can answer NO to each question below prior to sending their camper to camp each day.  If the answer is YES to any question below, you must keep your camper home.

  1. Has your camper knowingly been in close or proximate contact in the past 10 days with anyone who has tested positive through a diagnostic test for COVID-19?

  2. Has your camper or anyone in the camper’s household tested positive through a diagnostic test for COVID-19 or had inconclusive test results in the past 10 days?

  3. Does your camper or anyone in the camper’s household have pending diagnostic test results for COVID-19?  

  4. Has your camper experienced any symptoms of COVID-19, including, but not limited to, a temperature of greater than 100.0 F (degrees) in the past 14 days?  If your camper is not fever-free, without the assistance of medicine for 48 hours, your camper cannot attend camp.  

  5. Has your camper traveled internationally or for a period of 24 hours or more within another State (other than Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, or Vermont) in the past 14 days?  

There will be no refunds for non-attendance related to COVID-19.  The requirement that parents/guardians must conduct a pre-screen will be strictly enforced.  If we determine there has been a failure to abide by the pre-screen requirements, a camper and all other campers in the same household may be asked to leave the camp for the remainder of the 2022 camp season and may not be eligible to register for camp in 2023. 

The Town of West Seneca reserves the right to pre-screen any camper at the time of drop off with the above questions, additional questions, symptom check, and/or temperature check. 

If a camper is sent home and/or not admitted into the program for a temperature over 99°, experiencing signs/symptoms of COVID, positive screening answers, or otherwise based on concerns related to COVID signs/symptoms, they will not be permitted to return to the program until they can (a) provide a negative COVID-19 test; (b) provide a doctor’s note with an alternative diagnosis (note must state the camper can return to camp and must also state what is causing the symptoms); or (c) does not attend the program for 10 days. Refunds will not be issued in these cases.

The COVID-19 screening process could change at any time, with no notice or warning.
