COVID-19 FAQs

It is our intention to host our summer programs at the UWF Main Campus in accordance with university policies. Potential cancellations, student capacities, and other details may change as information surrounding the current pandemic continues to unfold. We will update our websites as new information becomes available and appreciate your flexibility and patience during this time.


Below are the anticipated camp procedures based on current guidelines.

Camp Sizes
Camp sizes will be determined by room size in order to allow for social distancing. Camp sizes will vary between 8-14 campers. 

Social Distancing
Campers will be able to sit 6 feet apart. We will try to maintain social distancing as much as possible. 

Cleaning and Sanitizing
Campers will wash or sanitize their hands upon arrival at extended care and camp, before and after lunch, and coming in from outside play. Campers will have their own supplies as much as possible. Any shared supplies will be sanitized between uses. 

Face Coverings
Face coverings are recommended. 

Drop Off and Pick Up Procedures
Specific drop off and pick up procedures are being developed. Pick up and drop off will not take place in the camp room in order to limit the amount of people coming in and out of the building and camp room. Pick up time will be extended from 3:00-3:15 to 3:00-3:30 in order to allow for more distance between parents and campers. The parent showcase will not take place in it’s traditional format. 

Extend Care
Extended care will be available but we will have to limit the numbers. If you need extended care, sign up early. It will not be available, once we reach capacity.  

Daily Covid Screening
By signing children in and out, adults agree that campers have not:

  • had one-on-one contact with any person(s) known to be infected with COVID-19 within the past 10 days
  • tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 10 days or have been tested due to symptoms of COVID-19 and are awaiting results 
  • traveled outside of the United States in the past 10 days 
  • are not feeling well and experiencing Covid-19 symptoms.
