Park City Parent: Summer 2020

Park City Parent: COVID-19 precautions for summer youth camps, activities and programs guidelines

• Groups will be restricted to 20 individuals unless a full wall can physically separate each group.

• Where a summer camp takes place at a larger facility (ski resorts, schools, recreational complex with both indoor and outdoor space) groups of 20 individuals can be separated utilizing both indoor and outdoor locations. Some of the schools and resorts have very large footprints to work within.

• Limit mixing the groups of children (e.g. keep groups in separate rooms, allow on the playground at different times).

• Take temperatures of all children upon arrival at the facility.

• Children will be instructed on how to properly wash hands and be required to wash or sanitize hands routinely or every time an activity changes.

• Alternating activities may be considered to maintain group spacing (one group doing one activity and the other group doing a different activity, then they switch and all surfaces are cleaned in between groups).

• While eating lunch or during snack times, social distancing will be encouraged (eating lunch outside on the grass might be more conducive).

• If lunch or snacks are provided by the camp, all recommended food service standards set forth in the Food Service Protocols will be followed.

• Parent designated pick-up and drop-off areas will be implemented.

The Young Riders Youth Mountain Bike program, takes place every summer usually, the second week in June through the third week in August. The program has a myriad of classes available for children, ages 5 to 14 years old and all ability levels. (Please no children still riding with training wheels).

Creekside Kids Academy and PEEK plan for a fun and educational summer

Necessary precautions are being taken to ensure a safe and healthy summer is had by our students, staff and their families.

Creekside Kids Academy Summer Camp starts June 15

Horses, hiking, biking, archery, frisbee golf, treasure hunts, crazy science, bounce houses, and paint. Those are just a few of the activities that will keep your children ages 6 weeks to 12 years busy this summer.

Creekside Kids Academy offers part-time and full- time options two, three, four, or five days a week all summer. Don’t stop at Summer, we offer a ro- bust after school program that will keep your kids out and about all year long. Our year-round activities challenge our students to get out and enjoy all that Park City has to offer — it will not disappoint. Don’t miss out on a fun-filled summer at Creekside Kids Academy. Creekside Kids has adjusted our programming this summer to stay at the school and at Rasmussen Ranch in Wanship. Necessary precautions are being taken to ensure a safe and healthy summer is had by our students, staff, and their families.

Visit creeksidekids.net for information.

The PEEK Program starts June 15

PEEK’s active learning environment, in and out of the classroom, fosters emotional growth and encourages independence as well as problem-solv- ing skills where children blossom into strong and respectful students.

This summer The PEEK Program is the place to be! With low teacher-to-student ratio, our PEEK teaching team will use their imaginations to create eight weeks of fun-filled themed camps. PEEK is now offering camp to students 2 to 12.

PEEK’s first camp theme, “Super Friends,” encourages children to be a superhero—filling other’s buckets and spreading kindness. Other weekly themes include possibly milking a cow while “On the Farm” and digging our way through the “Jurassic (Park)” period as we uncover the dinosaurs found in Utah such as the armored ankylosaurs. The fun doesn’t stop… we’ll get out the goggles as we “Discover Science” and try our hand at a few mind-blowing experiments. To cool off, during our “Wet and Wild” week we’ll experience water in a multitude of ways while on-campus or at Rasmussen Ranch.

While playing inside and out on our Pinebrook campus, (at the corner of Kilby and Pinebrook roads) our campers will experience the theme of the week through song, storytelling and listening, painting, crafts, games and assorted activities. We promise we’ll go outside often and enjoy the great outdoors and warm sunshine.

No matter the time of year, we never want to venture from our mission statement – The PEEK Program cultivates a safe, enriching school and summer experience where young children come together to gain social, emotional and academic knowledge in age appropriate learning environments.

PEEK is also registering for the 2020-2021 school year. Keep an eye on the website for a private school option for fall in the event our school districts don’t open.

Summit Land Conservancy will lead outdoor explorers camps

“Everyone, all of us on the planet, we are all explorers. And as explorers in the 21st century our job is not to conquer but to protect.” – Polar Explorer, Eric Larsen

Summit Land Conservancy is Park City’s local land trust. We work with our communities to protect and preserve land and water for the benefit of people and nature. The open spaces we save offer your children natural outdoor play areas that foster creativity and provide respite for overstimulated minds.

This summer, Summit Land Conservancy will host eight week-long summer camps that will be jam- packed with outdoor adventure. Campers will have the chance to experience a unique combination of structured outdoor recreation adventures and free “nature play” in local open spaces. This program focuses on teaching natural and cultural history on the open spaces that make Park City special. Children will actively engage in learning ecology, botany, biology, wildlife identification, local history, and other topics outside of the traditional class- room setting. They will also learn the importance of stewardship, and what it means to be a junior land conservator.

In regards to coronavirus, Summit Land Conservancy will follow whatever is recommended by the CDC once camps start in June. And of course, the conservancy will issue a full refund to parents if camps must be canceled due to COVID-19, as mentioned in the cancellation policy below.

Trail Trekking Tuesday: Oh, the places you can go by foot. Campers will explore the ecosystems of Rob’s Trail, and learn more about the protected property Enclave at Cedar Draw.
Weber River Wednesday: Hop on a raft with All Seasons Adventures and take a tour of the We- ber River. Learn about the local ranching history of Summit County, see the protected properties Fawcett, Stevens and Pyper Tracey Ranches, and learn more about one of Utah’s most important fresh-water resources.
Thrill Seeker Thursday: Let the wind take your sails on the Jordanelle Reservoir and learn the basics of operating your own vessel from the pros at Park City Sailing.

Park City Parent: Arts Camps

Egyptian Theatre’s YouTheatre sets the stage for its summer camps

The health and safety of our students and staff re- mains our top priority. As we plan for summer camps, we are following closely all directives coming from the CDC, Summit County Health Department, and the American Camp Association (ACA). That planning currently is centered around the guidelines specific to summer youth camps laid out by Summit County on May 1.

We will have to stay flexible as the situation progresses, and ask for your patience and understanding through this process.
Please note the following regarding camp and registration:

If any camp must be canceled due to changing guide- lines, you will be refunded in full.
If a camp must be rescheduled to different dates due to changing guidelines, you will be refunded in full if the new dates do not work for your family.

When we open registration next week, we are following the guidelines from the CDC for the current phase of stabilization. This means that we can only allow residents of Summit county to register for camp at this time. We cannot allow visitors or those who live in other counties to register for camp.

As we cannot have live performances in adherence to the limited group numbers required by social distancing protocols, all showcases this summer will be filmed and sent to families to watch with their fabulous performers.

Deer Valley’s adventure camp schedules summer fun for kids

This story is found in the Summer 2019 edition of Park City Parent.

Deer Valley’s Summer Adventure Camp is based at the Children’s Center at Snow Park Lodge. Surrounded by mountains, with hiking trails, hillside playgrounds and duck ponds, this state-licensed center provides a separate “home base” for each age group.

The center has built-in nooks for entertainment and performances, a bouldering wall and a full supply of craft projects, games, puzzles, videos and books.

Camp dates are weekdays, June 10 through August 19 with no camp on July 4 and July 24.

Camp hours are from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., with organized activities from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. for full- day registration and 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. for half- day registration when applicable.

For safety reasons and to ensure quality programming, appropriate age divisions are required.

Campers need to bring a sack lunch, water bottle and sunscreen daily. Healthy, nutritious sack lunches are available for a nominal fee. The Children’s Center is a nut-free environment, so please do not include foods containing nuts or nut products in camper’s lunches.

Field trip, special activity and swimming fees are not included in prices. Field trips and special activities fees range from $15 to $40 and there is a nominal fee for swimming.

Weekly calendars are available to notify parents of that week’s theme, guest speakers or performers, field trips and more.

THE COUNSELORS

Our camp counselors are trained professionals who are experienced in child care. Many of them work in our children’s ski programs and Children’s Center during the winter or Deer Valley Academy during the school year. The counselor to camper ratios are: one to three for infants, one to four for toddlers, and one for a group of five to eight for older children.

THE CAMPERS

Sunflowers (ages 2 – 11 months) are offered play time and quiet time in our state-licensed child care facility. The seasonal full-day rate is $3,234 and a three-day seasonal rate is also available.

Grasshoppers (ages 12 – 18 months), Little Ramblers (ages 19 – 23 months) and Ramblers (age 2 years) enjoy playtime with friends, music and movement, art and many other organized activities in a fun environment. The costs for Grasshoppers, Little Ramblers and Ramblers are as follows: seasonal full-day rate is $3,038; the half-day rate is $2,107. A three-day seasonal rate is also available.

Trekkers (ages 3 – 4 years and completely potty- trained) are led in small group settings while they have fun discovering nature and making new friends. Exciting local outings are planned weekly to explore our mountain environment. Rates are the same as the Grasshopper, Little Ramblers and Ramblers rates.

Explorers (ages 5 – 6 years) and Mountaineers (ages 7 – 12 years) participate in creative activities, nature discovery studies and team-oriented sporting events under the guidance of enthusiastic counselors. Exciting field trips are planned weekly to explaore a variety of recreational resources in the area. Hiking, mountain biking, basic biking skills, swimming, rollerblading, scavenger hunts, wet and wild water games, volunteer projects and creative arts and crafts

are all part of this fun and educational program. The seasonal full-day rate for both groups is $2,793 and a three-day seasonal rate is also available.

THE PROJECTS

Each summer, the campers participate in S.A.V.E. (Summer Adventure Volunteer Effort), which raises money through an art show for a selected organization. Some of our past recipients have been Christian Center of Park City’s Back 2 School Basics program, Wrightsville Beach Sea Turtle Project, the Blind Children’s Learning Center and Ocearch. In 2018, the campers raised $1,000 for the Summit Community Garden. An annual art show is held the first week of August and allows the campers to proudly display the many and varied art projects they worked on so diligently all summer. The pieces are available to purchase for a donation to that year’s S.A.V.E. project.

Deer Valley Summer Adventure Camp plans activities around weekly themes. Here are a few examples of this summer’s themes: Park City Pirate Party, Silly Science and Beach, Bubbles, Balloons. For information, visit deervalley.com/camp.

LOCATION:

SAFETY:

SWIM TEST: While no formal swim test is required to participate in Park City Sailing, it is recommended that participants be able to swim without the aid of a life jacket. Participants are required to wear life jackets when participating in activities on or around the water.

LIFE JACKETS: Safety is of primary importance! Every child, regardless of age or class, is required to wear a Coast Guard-approved life vest at all times when on the docks and water. This rule also applies to free sailing and participation at away events. Park City Sailing will provide life jackets, but students can also bring their own.

CONDUCT AND DISCIPLINE: There should be no rough play on the docks or on the grounds. Respect is essential for fellow members and boats. Poor sportsmanship will not be tolerated. Sailors and their families will be held accountable for lost or damaged equipment if it is deemed by staff to be reasonably preventable given the sailor’s ability level. If discipline is necessary, the director reserves the right to require a student to leave the program for a certain period of time. The student’s parents will be notified immediately. Please refer to the Parent Agreement.

During the program, a newsletter will be distributed via email and the Park City Sailing website – www.SAILpc.org. Visit the site for information throughout the summer and to sign up to receive email updates.
