2021 SUMMER SAFETY

· Class sizes will be reduced to allow for social distancing and sanitization considerations.

· Individual supply kits will be provided to each camper to limit cross-contamination.

· Masks will be required for all campers, volunteers, and instructors.

· Staff will confirm the health of each camper by speaking with each parent daily.

· To limit the number of persons in the classroom, parents will be asked to drop off campers at the front gate. Car line will follow directional arrows, walk ups will be asked to follow social distancing markers on the ground.

· Camps will still include snack time, and all-day camps will still include a lunch. During these times, students will each have their own table/snack space with a 6 foot radius between members of different households. 

· Campers will be spending a lot of time outdoors, so please provide your campers with adequate sun, bug, and foot protection. We cannot provide bug spray or sunscreen. 

· Water fountains throughout the zoo have been turned off to prevent the spread of Covid-19. As in past years, the Greenville Zoo will still provide each camper with a water bottle and constant access to clean, cold water.

· Cool down breaks will be taken to ensure that campers are properly hydrated and not overheated.
