Camp Waterford Stay Safe Plan

We are fully committed to giving your child the best possible experience at Camp Waterford this summer despite inevitable changes to the programme in line with all up-to-date governmental guidance.

Ideally staff will remain 2m away from children. However, we know that this is not always possible, especially when working with younger children or those with complex needs. Staff and children (other than Cub Camp) will need to wear masks indoors.

Sanitising hands:
Children will be asked to sanitise their hands regularly throughout the day. Hand sanitiser will be provided in addition to each child’s personal supply.

Frequently touched points will be cleaned regularly.

Pod bases:
Children will be separated into pods of max 15. They will remain within this pod for all activities all week. Pods will be identified by colour. Children can choose to wear a t-shirt / top matching the colour assigned. Pods will have their own base where they will gather before activities and to eat. Each pod will have a designated coach in charge of their welfare.

Each camp has their own designated toilet facilities.

First Aid:
Non covid-19 first aid will be dealt with by pod staff.

Symptoms of Covid-19:
The following procedures will be administered in the event of suspected Covid-19 symptoms.

High Temperature

  • New, continuous cough or shortness of breath
  • Loss or change to sense of smell or taste
  • Vomiting and diarrhoea

As a result of at least one of these symptoms being identified we will follow the HSE guidance and –

  • Contact parents / guardians
  • Advise parents to contact GP for testing
  • In the event of a positive covid-19 result the HSE will coordinate the appropriate action plan
