SUMMER TRIP DETAILS

As you can imagine many difficult  program planning decisions had to be made again this year.

Our summer offerings will again look a little different this year (as does everything around us) but we are proud to be able to offer youth some fun, positive, safe options to help ween them back into social normalcy.

4 Major Changes This Year: 
The safety of our participants is our highest priority and we will follow all  SAFETY / HEALTH GUIDELINES  that are in place this summer. 

1. Transportation

  • Bus Transportation WILL NOT BE PROVIDED again this year.
    Due to extremely restrictive bus occupancy guidelines set forth by the CDC due to Covid –19.
  • Van Transportation will be provided on some trips. Max: 5 youth per van. Total trip size: 10 (Look for 2 VANS on calendar)
  • For all other trips, participants will be responsible for their own transportation to and from each field trip destination.

2.  Our maximum in-person group size is 25 students. Trips are likely to be sold out quicker.

3 Youth are required to bring a face covering with them on every trip. Face Masks are required on certain trips and when 6 ft of social distancing cannot be maintained.

4.  Health Check-Ins will be conducted before each trip (including no-contact temperature readings and health questionnaire)
