If there is one experience that’s sure to build memories, It’s PARPC’s 2020 Summer Camp!

By connecting to the interests of our campers, by providing an environment that’s nurturing, supportive and inclusive, and by making fun [and safety] the goal of every activity, PARPC offers children in completed grades Kindergarten through eighth grade, a special place that makes it all happen and then some.

Campers participate in a whole host of age appropriate happenings such as sports, games, crafts and learning activities that boost self-esteem, inspire self-expression, facilitate friendships and build a sense of community.

Summer Camp is an integral part of the Palmyra Area Recreation and Parks Commission. In fact, it’s one of the many jewels in our programming, a status that speaks to the staff we choose for their ability to be nurturing, positive role models for our campers. And our caring doesn’t stop with the kids. We engage parents, keeping them up to date on camp fun thru our on-site message board, weekly newsletters and photos.

PARPC Summer Camp provides children with fun memories and friendships that last a lifetime. It’s the reason so many of our campers come back year after year.  Join us!

Dates: Monday through Friday, June 14th  thru August 13th, 2021 for a total of 9 weeks.  (Nine week commitment)

Location: Lingle Elementary

Hours: 6:30 am to 6:00 pm: You or your designated person must sign in child in and out daily. Photo ID may need to be shown until staff becomes familiar with parents / children. Please explain this procedure to designated pick-up people.

  • 6:30 am to 6 pm: It is highly recommended that your child be dropped off by 9:00 am as this begins the structured, organized portion of the camp day.
  • If you drop off after 9 am you will be required to take your camper to the appropriate age group location.  Call the camp phone at 717-343-4049 regarding drop-off time change so you know where your child needs to be dropped off.
  • If you are picking up before 3:00 pm, you will need to go to the location of the group by calling the camp phone 717-343-4049 to discuss a pick up time change and pick up location with the proper age group.
  • Absence: If your child is scheduled to be at camp and will not be attending due to illness or other reasons, please call the camp phone, 717-343-4049, (not PARPC office) to inform camp staff.

COVID 19 UPDATE:

  • All camps will follow in line with COVID-19 safety measures such as temperature checks, hand sanitizer before and after participation, and sportsmanship will be in a touchless manner.
  • If Covid-19 restrictions are heightened and the program is cancelled we will refund all registration money.

The health and safety of our athletes, staff, and volunteers remain our highest priority!  Below, you will find a summary of actions we are taking to help ensure we are lowering COVID-19 risk as much as possible while also allowing our athletes to play.  We are:

 

  • Intensifying cleaning and disinfection by cleaning goals and disinfecting equipment between use as feasible.
  • Reducing physical closeness or contact between players when possible such as allowing players to focus on building individual skills (like dribbling and stick juggling), keeping children in small groups, putting signs and using cones to designate staying 6 feet apart as much as possible, discouraging unnecessary physical contact, such as high fives, handshakes, fist bumps, and hugs and replacing these with a modified cheer.
  • Promoting healthy hygiene practices such as hand sanitizer before and after practices and games, encouraging children to cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or to use the inside of their elbow, and reminding them to not spit.
  • Players are required to wear a mask before practice starts while checking in at camp and after practice is over, but no facemask during camp.
  • Limiting the sharing of equipment.  This year, players are encouraged to bring their own field hockey ball if possible.  If they do not have access to a field hockey ball, PARPC will provide field hockey balls to borrow.  Athletes should be sure to put your name on all equipment used at camp including your water bottle and keep your personal equipment 6 feet from each other.
  • Any spectator at camp must wear a mask,  participate in 6 foot social distancing from each other, and remain 6 feet from the field sideline

 

Anyone who is sick or has been in contact with someone who has COVID-19 including players, family members, coaches, staff and spectators- should not attend camp.  Be on the lookout for symptoms of COVID-19, which include fever, cough, or shortness of breath.  Call your doctor if you think you or a family member is sick.  Please follow CDC guidelines to return back to sports from home isolation found at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/if-you-are-sick/end-home-isolation.html
