The health and safety of our campers, their families, and our staff is our top priority. In restructuring our program for summer 2021, we have closely followed the recommendations of the CDC and local health officials to ensure that our campers are at the lowest possible risk. Please note that our protocols are subject to change without notice based on recommendations and orders by local health officials and the CDC. Here are the key changes this summer:

• CLASS SIZE: We have capped enrollment to 6 students max.

• SOCIAL DISTANCING: We will have one student per table at all times (*exception for siblings) with the same dedicated instructor(s) throughout the day.

• MANDATORY MASKS: All campers and staff are required to wear an approved mask at all times. The following are the masks approved for use at 3D Design Camp: cloth or paper masks, procedural/surgical masks, and N95 Masks (these masks should be reserved for health care providers and first responders). The following masks are banned for use at 3D Design Camp: neck gaiters, bandanas, masks with exhalation valves, and face shields without an approved mask underneath. See below for more details on approved masks.

• HAND HYGIENE: Hand sanitizer will be available for campers as well as access to restrooms during camp for handwashing using soap and water for at least 20 seconds.

• NO SHARING: Sharing is not allowed and campers will be reminded to keep their personal belongings with them at all times. We will provide all of the students with their own supplies.

• SAFETY SIGNAGE: The camp will post signs in highly visible locations (e.g., office entrance, break rooms, restrooms) that promote everyday protective measures and describe how to stop the spread of germs by properly washing hands and properly wearing a mask.

• PHYSICAL GUIDES: Tape on floors and walkways will be used to ensure that staff and campers remain at least 6 feet apart in lines by creating guides for creating “one way routes” in hallways.

• ROUTINE CLEANING: We have a schedule for increased, routine cleaning and disinfection of frequently touched surfaces.

• DESIGNATED COVID-19 POINT OF CONTACT: We have established a dedicated staff member responsible for responding to COVID-19 concerns. Two weeks prior to your child's session, you will receive an email with contact information for our COVID-19 point of contact.

• HEALTH SCREENINGS: Parents will be required to complete a health screening (COVID) Google doc the morning of the camp. Upon arrival, staff will conduct a temperature check in a safe and respectful manner.

• ENHANCED STAFF TRAINING: In addition to the standard first aid and safety training our camp staff receives, we have included additional training on recognizing signs and symptoms of illness

3D Design Camp has the following protocols in place should someone get sick during camp:

• STAY HOME: Foremost, campers and/or staff should NOT come to camp AND should notify GoEngineer if any of the following occurs:
o A camper and/or staff member becomes sick with COVID-19 symptoms.
o A camper and/or staff member tests positive for COVID-19.
o A camper and/or staff member has been exposed to someone with COVID-19 symptoms or a confirmed or suspected case.

• ISOLATION AND TRANSPORTATION: Should a camper display any symptoms of COVID-19 (such as fever, cough, or shortness of breath), they will be immediately moved to our designated COVID-19 isolation area until they can safely be picked up by a parent (or in the case of severe illness, transported by an ambulance to the nearest hospital). Staff members with symptoms of COVID-19 will be immediately sent home and replacement staff will be substituted.

• CLOSE CONTACT: The 3D Design Camp defines close contact as anyone who was within 6 feet of a person with COVID-19 for more than 15 minutes.

• CLEAN AND DISINFECT: Areas used by a sick person will be immediately closed off and not used until 1) they have been cleaned and disinfected thoroughly and 2) 24 hours have passed.

• PROPER NOTIFICATIONS: In accordance with state and local laws and regulations, camp administrators will immediately notify local health officials, staff, and families of any case of COVID-19 while maintaining confidentiality in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Students must properly wear an approved mask at all times while at camp. Our list of approved masks is based on recommendations from John Hopkins University - click here for more details.

APPROVED MASKS - The following masks are approved for use at 3D Design camp:

1. Cloth or Paper Masks: These masks help slow the spread of the coronavirus that causes COVID-19 and help keep people who unknowingly have the virus from transmitting it to others. Thick, densely woven cottons are good materials for cloth masks.
2. Procedural and Surgical Masks: Although they are not close fitting, these blue disposable masks are fluid resistant and provide some protection from larger respiratory droplets from coughs and sneezes. Primarily, they help prevent the wearer from spreading infectious droplets to others.
3. Professional Respirators: Called N95 respirators, these medical devices help prevent exposure to tiny droplets that can be suspended in the air. Health care workers who wear them undergo a fit-test to find the right make, model, and size to ensure a tight seal. N95 respirators should be reserved for health care providers and first responders.

BANNED MASKS -The following masks are banned for use at 3D Design camp:

1. Neck Gaiters: A neck gaiter (a tube of thin, stretchy knit fabric that can be worn around the neck and pulled up to cover the nose and mouth) is too thin to provide adequate protection.
2. Bandanas: A bandanna tied around the face does not work as well as a mask because it is open at the bottom.
3. Masks with Exhalation Valves: Masks with exhalation valves can allow your droplets to escape into the air.

Your child can choose to wear a face shield in addition to one of the approved masks listed above but a face shield is not a substitute for an approved mask nor is it required by the camp. Your child still must wear an approved mask at all times.

We do not accept waivers or exemptions from wearing a face mask. Recently, fake cards and flyers claiming the bearer is exempt from mask-wearing regulations have shown up in some areas. They claim the person carrying them has a physical or mental condition covered by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) that makes them unable to wear a face mask or covering. The United States Department of Justice issued a statement about these fake mask exemptions , explaining that the cards and flyers are fraudulent.

Your child must wear a mask EVEN IF THEY HAVE RECEIVED THE VACCINE. The CDC has stated, "while experts learn more about the protection that COVID-19 vaccines provide under real-life conditions, it will be important for everyone to continue using all the tools available to us to help stop this pandemic, like covering your mouth and nose with a mask, washing hands often, and staying at least 6 feet away from others."
