FAQ's

COVID-19 Protocols for Youth Programs Spring 2022
  • This year, we are requiring all participants to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. You may complete the enrollment process without uploading proof of vaccination, but it must be provided by 1 week before the start of the program (see instructions in the Forms section of the enrollment process). 
  • Please monitor your child for symptoms of illness (fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, muscle pain, sore throat, new loss of taste or smell…) and email riversidecamps@gmail.com as soon as possible if any symptoms are noticed. Do not attend the program if your child or anyone in their household has symptoms of illness. 
  • We will sanitize hands whenever necessary.
  • We will be outdoors the entire time – drop-off and pickup will be in the park where the program will take place. We will not be transporting the kids in buses.
