VACCINATION POLICY

Stone Ridge Summer CampUs requires proof of full COVID-19 vaccination for eligible individuals ages 5 and older (subject to legally required exemptions) as the best means of reducing the risk of transmission and providing our students/campers and faculty/staff with the safest possible camp/educational environment. Vaccination not only works to protect the individual who is vaccinated, but also protects students/campers who are not yet eligible and anyone at increased risk from COVID-19. Stone Ridge Summer CampUs does not accept religious or philosophical exemption requests to vaccine requirements for students/campers.

NOTE: All unvaccinated Mini Gator 4 year olds will eat lunch in their own self-contained classroom and are not eligible to attend Pre-Care or After-care. 

COVID POLICY

 

Stone Ridge Summer CampUs is mask-optional except while riding in school vans. However, should local health conditions and regulations mandate, we reserve the right to change the mask policy. We continue to require proof of full vaccination for all staff and campers aged 5+.  Students will be asked to wear masks while on buses/vans at this time. We strongly recommend families self-test their campers for COVID each Sunday night before starting a new camp week on Monday. If your camper tests positive at any time, please email the camp office immediately (email@stoneridgesummercampus.org) and do not send your child to camp. With proof of a positive test, we will issue a refund for your camper. **Please note test results sent in must have the students name and date of test.** 

Do not send your camper to camp with any symptoms of illness; campers exhibiting any of the following symptoms will be sent home immediately by the nurse:

Students and employees must stay home if they are exhibiting any symptoms of COVID-19, including:

  • Fever (100.4 or higher) or chills

  • Cough

  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

  • Fatigue

  • Muscle or body aches

  • Headache

  • New loss of taste or smell

  • Sore throat

  • Congestion or runny nose

  • Nausea or vomiting

  • Diarrhea

In the event of a report of a positive COVID case of a camper age 5+, Stone Ridge is not contact tracing but we will send a general note home to inform the parents of reported positive cases. 

Mini Gator COVID POLICY : If someone in the unvaccinated 4-5 year old class tests positive, SR will send a note home to inform the parents. Students will be required to mask indoors for the duration of the session and will be asked to self-test on Sunday night before the following session starts.

CLOSURES/Cancellations/REFUNDS

When applying online, the cardholder authorizes Stone Ridge to apply charges directly to the credit card provided on the same business day. To pay the balance due, parents can authorize Stone Ridge to charge their credit card on file, access their accounts online and pay by credit card, or submit a check made out to Stone Ridge Summer CampUs. There is a $25 fee for all returned checks.

Summer CampUs reserves the following rights

  • To cancel a class which is under-enrolled or to substitute teachers as deemed necessary.

Late Fee Policies

All campers must be picked up between 3:00–3:30 pm. Campers picked up after 3:30 pm will be checked into aftercare and charged for drop-in aftercare for the day. All After-care campers must be picked up by 5:30 pm. Camp families are required to have a valid credit card on file with the camp office so that late fees of $1.00/minute per child may be charged directly to the card by the camp office.
