Health and Safety Protocols

Marymount Summer is committed to creating the safest possible circumstances for a robust, engaging, and fun in-person summer camp experience. Marymount Summer will follow the recommendations of the NYCDOH in our safety practices and protocols, but please note that information is changing rapidly and flexibility will be required as we adapt to updated guidance.  You will receive more specific information on health and safety protocols a few weeks before the beginning of camp.

The health and safety of our community is a shared responsibility, and each of us has an important role to play in protecting the well-being of ourselves and others. Now more than ever, we ask for your help in keeping our community safe by following these protocols:

  • All Marymount Summer staff and campers 12 and older must be fully vaccinated prior to arriving at camp (at least two weeks post the second dose of vaccine); campers ages 5-11 are strongly encouraged to be fully vaccinated as well.

  • Keep your child home when they exhibit any symptoms, even if they seem minor, and notify the nurse at camp to discuss when they can return;

  • Follow all state requirements for quarantine after exposure or isolation after contracting Covid-19; 

  • Inform the camp nurse if your child has been exposed to a family member or close contact with Covid-19.

All Marymount Summer facilities are equipped with HEPA filters in the HVAC system;  if a room has a window air conditioner instead of forced air, filters are maximized for equipment capabilities.  Classrooms are also outfitted with free standing air purifiers.

Marymount Summer has a full-time Health Director who is a registered nurse.  The Health Director will manage any ill persons at school, and our health offices are equipped with isolation rooms for anyone who exhibits COVID symptoms.  Campers who exhibit symptoms must be picked up within one hour by a parent/guardian or a designated emergency contact and should consult their primary care physician for further evaluation.
