How are you ensuring participant safety?
We are following all rules and guidelines set by the Government of Alberta and Alberta Health officials as they pertain to camps and worker safety. See Guidance for Day Camps. Please check this link often as this information is subject to change as this situation evolves.
What are the camp / daycare safety guidelines?
- We will require all parents/guardians to check the temperatures of their children daily before coming to KidZone. You will be required to communicate your child’s temperature to staff on a daily basis. In addition, our staff will be conducting non-contact active symptom screening of each child every day at drop-off as well as ongoing health screenings during the day. Such health screening could include temperature checks and other symptom monitoring. You will be required to be honest in your answers, and you must acknowledge that you will not provide your child with any medication or take other actions to disguise, alter, lower, or diminish any symptoms.
- Camp participants, Team Members, parents or guardians cannot attend the camp if they are sick or feel unwell, even if symptoms resemble a mild cold. Symptom monitoring will include the primary COVID-19 symptoms (fever (above 37.5C), cough, shortness of breath/difficulty breathing, sore throat, chills, painful swallowing, runny nose/nasal congestion, feeling unwell/fatigued, nauseas/vomiting/diarrhea, unexplained loss of appetite, loss of sense of taste or smell, muscle/joint aches, headache, conjunctivitis (pink eye)).
- Additionally, your child will not be able to attend camp if they or anyone in their household(s):
- Has travelled outside of Canada within the past 14 days; or
- Has had close unprotected contact (face to face contact within 2m/6 feet) with someone who is ill with cough and/or fever; or
- Has been in close unprotected contact in the last 14 days with someone who is being investigated or confirmed to be a case of COVID-19; or
- Are being investigated as a suspected case of COVID-19.
- We encourage you to complete the Alberta Health Services (AHS) self assessment if you or your child has any symptoms or feel unwell. See AHS self-assessment tool.
- If your child develops symptoms while at the camp, they will be isolated from other children and a parent or guardian must be available to pick them up immediately. Parents should be familiar with and follow our rapid response plan which includes the immediate pick-up of your child if symptoms develop.
- KidZone cannot guarantee that any individual attending KidZone’s camps, using KidZone’s facilities or participating in any activities organized by KidZone will not becoming infected with COVID-19.
What if my child or a member of my household has symptoms of illness?
- Your child must not attend camp if they have any symptoms or exposure referred to in the health screening section of this page. Please see our cancellation policy for details.
What if my child or household member has an underlying health condition, compromised immune system or I live with an older household member?
- While we are still learning about COVID-19, the Government of Alberta has reported that serious illness, including death, appears to develop more often in people who are older or have pre-existing conditions or are immune compromised. You should consult your family physician prior to your child attending KidZone summer camp to determine whether or not it is appropriate for your child to attend. It is your decision whether or not it is appropriate for your child to attend and you are assuming, on behalf of your child, yourself and any member of your child’s household(s), any increased risk that being exposed to or contracting COVID-19 may cause to you, your child or other members of your child’s household(s) if you choose to send your child to KidZone summer camp.
What if I or a member of my household recently traveled outside of Canada, can my child still attend camp?
- If the camp you are planning to attend falls within 14 days of you or a member of your household arriving back in Canada then no, you cannot attend camp. Anyone who has returned from outside of Canada is legally required to isolate for 14 days and monitor for symptoms, per the Government of Alberta . No member of the same household will be permitted to attend KidZone camps during this isolation period.
