2021 Summer Camp Guide

Camp registration opens at 8:30am on March 8!

Nature Awaits us this summer! Join us as we venture into the wild and explore all things outdoors through games, crafts and excursions. Campers will become Art Rangers, go on a Safari Adventure, learn about insects and how to survive in the wild as they are divided into age-appropriate activities.

The City of Miamisburg is excited to present the 2021 summer camp series. While day camps were not held in 2020, staff are working very hard to design safe and engaging camps for children this summer.

Camps will be offered for children ages 3-14. All camps are during the day and each week will introduce a new theme for games, activities and more.

FAQs

Is Camp happening this year?

Yes. There is no better place for kids to connect, make new friends, try new things, and discover their potential than a Miamisburg camp. We are following all CDC, local, state and government guidance. Due to the nature of the changes our program structure has also changed, but we will be in operation and our camper’s safety remains our top priority.

What are you doing about Covid-19?

The health and safety of your child is our number one priority.  Once you have registered for camp, you will receive a Camp Handbook that details the procedures, but in summary we have implemented the following guidelines to maintain a healthy and safe environment:

  • Limited enrollment and smaller groups of campers.
  • Daily wellness check to screen for symptoms and fever.
  • Maintain social distancing.
  • Frequent hand washing.
  • Mask wearing, when inside or when social distancing cannot be maintained.
  • Increased frequency of cleaning/sanitizing schedule of shared spaces and objects.
  • Keeping campers in small groups of 9 campers of fewers.
  • Providing campers individual supplies, keeping a camper’s belongings separated from others.

What if the camp I'm looking at is full?

Please utilize the waitlist! It's free and reserves your spot in line. We are hopeful that enrollment limitations may be loosened as we approach summer. Waitlist enrollments will receive priority registration opportunities if/when restrictions allow additional participation.

Will my child go on a field trip?

All travel schedules are tentative. While our intention is to follow the printed schedule, some changes may occur due to inclement weather, site difficulties or new Covid-19 protocols. No refunds will be given for location or field trip changes within the weekly schedule.

Yes! If you register your camper between March 8-March 31, you may select the Partial Payment Plan. This is only available online. This is also ONLY available until March 31. When choosing this option, 50% of your camp registration will be due at the time of registration.

Does my child have to wear a mask?

Campers must wear a mask during the following times:

  • At drop-off and pick-up.
  • During the daily wellness check.
  • When inside any building or vehicle.
  • When physical distancing is not possible.

We ask that campers bring their own masks. If a camper forgets, we will have disposable masks available. Camp staff will wear masks daily.

Are there mask breaks?

Yes. Campers will be outside as much as possible weather permitting. As long as social distancing can be maintained outside, masks are optional. During a rainy day or when children are inside for prolonged periods, frequent mask breaks will be available.

What should my child bring to camp?

Please make sure camper’s name is clearly marked on all items. Miamisburg Parks & Recreation is not responsible for any lost or stolen items.

  • 2-ply mask
  • Backpack

Where do I drop off and pick up my child?

Each location will have a designated area for drop off and pick up from camp. Two name placards will be given to prior to your child’s first day at camp.  Please place a name placard on your vehicle’s dashboard at the time of pick up and drop off. Drivers and passengers will remain in the car during drop of and pick up.   We request that all drivers/passengers wear a mask during these times. Our staff will escort your child to and from your vehicle to our facility.  Specific location for drop off and pick up will be emailed prior to your first day of camp.

Why must I show a valid photo ID at pick up?

Parents need to sign children out when picking them up from camp and provide a driver’s license or valid photo ID. The only adults authorized to pick up a child are those adults listed on the child’s medical form.  This sign-in/sign-out process is for the safety and accountability of your child.

  • Cell phones (campers will be required to leave cell phones in camp bag or book bag until the end of the day)
  • Electronic devices or games
  • Toys, playing cards and other personal belongings unless otherwise noted.
What if my child gets sick at camp?

If a camper get sick at camp we have identified an area where they can rest, be watched after, and safely isolate from others. We will communicate with parents or caregivers directly and, if necessary, arrange for the child to be taken to a healthcare facility for care.

We ask that you help us protect the health of campers this summer. Anyone who is sick or was sick with COVID-19 or recently in contact with someone with COVID-19 or recently in contact with someone with COVID-19 in the last 14 days- including staff, campers and families- should not come to camp.
