GREAT SUMMERS START AT THE Y

The YMCA of San Francisco is committed to providing quality youth programming and exceptional summer camp experiences to our Bay Area families.

Health & Safety Protocols

Wellness Checks

We will no longer complete daily health and temperature checks, but ask that parents use this guide from SF Department of Public Health to complete a wellness check at home and keep your child at home should they not pass.   Immediately after check-in staff and campers will be required to wash their hands with soap and warm water for 20 seconds or sanitize. 

Our Cleaning and Sanitizing Procedures

High volume surfaces such as doorknobs, water fountains, door handles, tables, and bathrooms will be sanitized  as needed. Campers and staff will have hand washing or sanitizing scheduled regularly.  Shared materials will immediately be wiped down after use. Toys or materials that are difficult to clean (example: playdough, stuffed animals) will not be allowed at program. A professional cleaning company will clean and sanitize any indoor spaces used at the end of the day.

Pick-up and Drop-Off Procedures

Drop-off and pick-up will be drive or walk up. Due to safety protocols, parents/guardians will not be allowed to enter the facility. One parent/guardian may drop-off one child at a time. If multiple families arrive at once, you will be asked to wait a minimum of 6 feet for your turn in line. Parents/guardians and youth must wear a mask during drop-off and pick-up.

Our Mask Policy

Staff must wear a mask 100% of the time while indoors. Youth 3 years and older must wear a mask 100% of the time while indoors.  Masks are no longer required when outside.  

Physical Distancing

Groups will not exceed current county/city guidelines.  Absences from camp will be monitored. Program will be set up to maintain 3’ of physical distancing as much as possible. Program activities have been modified to ensure they can be run safely and ‘touch free’. All field trips have been canceled. Hugging, holding hands, etc are not permitted.

 

The Summer Together Initiative

 

The YMCA of San Francisco is joining the Summer Together Initiative for Summer 2021. The Summer Together Initiative is a coalition of community organizations, nonprofits, businesses, and city departments partnering to offer free in-person learning experiences for San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD) Students.
