COVID-19 Policies

Parents/guardians are required to verify campers are free of the following symptoms each day at drop-off:

  • Fever (>100.4°F) or chills
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea

Mask Policy 

The following mask policy applies to all campers, staff and adults attending camp activities (ie. drop-off, pickup) regardless of vaccination status. Parents/guardians will receive an email with the current transmission status and masking requirement the Friday before each camp session.

  • Low – Green: Campers and staff are not required to wear masks at the Low level of risk. Campers and staff may continue to wear a mask based on personal preference.
  • Medium - Yellow: Campers and staff are not required to wear masks at the medium level of risk, however, campers and staff should: Consider wearing masks indoors and testing in advance of interactions if a close contact or relative is at high risk of severe disease, and, if immunocompromised, talk to a doctor about whether masking or other precautions are necessary.
  • High - Orange: Campers and staff are required, at the High level of risk, to wear a well-fitting mask indoors regardless of vaccination status, except while eating or drinking.

If a camper, staff member, or adult is exhibiting symptoms at any level of risk, they will be given a mask.

Safety Protocols 

  • Parents/guardians will be notified if an exposure happens during camp and what steps they should follow.
  • Campers will be in groups of no more than 18 children and will have limited interaction with other camp groups.
  • We strongly encourage eligible campers and staff that have access to a vaccine to consult with their physician and get vaccinated against COVID-19.

The Henry Ford Summer Camp will continue to monitor and adhere to CDC and Wayne County Health guidelines for schools and summer camps. 

Refund Policy

THF reserves the right to cancel a camp session if a camper or counselor tests positive for COVID-19.

Partial refunds can be issued for the following two scenarios:

  1. In the case THF cancels a camp session, a partial refund can be issued based on the number of days cancelled.
  2. In the case your child is required to quarantine due to a positive COVID test or is a close contact as outlined by Wayne County Health, a partial refund can be issued based on the number of days missed.

For any other scenarios where your child missed camp time due to COVID policies, refunds will be issued on a case-by-case basis. This information can also be found in The Henry Ford Summer Camp 2022 Handbook.
