Hello Kamp Kookamunga Families,

We hope this email finds you well and helps answer any questions you may have regarding Kamp Kookamunga next week.  We are looking forward to welcoming you and your camper as we have been working hard to plan fun activities and to make it a week your camper won’t forget! 

This summer we have many changes coming to Kamp Kookamunga to ensure all our campers and staff remain healthy and safe.  Please take a few moments to read this email to help answer your questions and prepare you for when you arrive on Monday morning. 

DROP OFF & PICK UP LOCATION

Your camper will be in our Block 1 next week for camp (groups 1-4).  Your drop off location each morning and pick up location each afternoon will be the Basketball Courts at Lynndale Park.  Please enter Lynndale Park from 68th and 189th and this will take you straight down to the parking lot.  We will have balloons at the top of the road with a sign that directs you down the correct street on Monday morning. 

* If you have siblings you are bringing to camp, please drop off all siblings at the youngest siblings drop off/pick up location.  (Group 1 will be our youngest campers with Group 12 being our oldest campers.) 

 

Once you arrive at the parking lot you will be directed to two different Check Points: 

SIGN IN: 

Check Point #1:

  • Confirmation that your camper is registered for camp
  • Temperature Check (temperatures must be below 100.3)
  • Health Screening Questions
    • Have you or anyone in your immediate family been in close contact with someone who has confirmed or suspected Covid-19 in the last 14 days?
    • Does your child/youth have any of the following symptoms currently or in the past 3 days (72 hours)?
      • A cough
      • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
      • A fever of 100.4 or higher (or a sense of having a fever)
      • A sore throat
      • Chills
      • New loss of taste or smell
      • Muscle or body aches
      • Nausea/Vomiting/Diarrhea
      • Congestion/Running Nose (not related to seasonal allergies)
      • Unusual fatigue
  • Has your child/youth had any medication to reduce a fever before coming to camp? 

Once you complete these items and your camper is determined to be healthy you will move on to Check Point #2.  If your camper’s temperature is over 100.3, we will ask you to pull over and we will retake your camper’s temperature in 10 minutes.  If your camper’s temperature is over 100.3 or you answered yes to any of the questions above, we will ask that you take your camper home for the day and monitor them for 3 days (72 hours) before returning to camp. 

 

Check Point #2:

  • Sign In – We will have clean pens for parents to sign in, however, we do highly recommend bringing your own pen to sign in your camper.
  • Camper will be told who their counselor is and will exit the car.  We will then direct your camper to their counselor who will be waiting for them.

 

SIGN OUT:

 Check Point #1:

  • ID Confirmation
    • Please have your ID ready to present.  This will ensure you are on the pickup list for your camper.

 

Check Point #2:

  • Sign Out – We will have clean pens for parents to sign out, however, we do highly recommend bringing your own pen to sign out your camper.
  • Camper will enter your car and you’re free to go!

 

EXTENDED CARE

If your camper is registered for our Extended Care program (before or after care), your drop off and pick location will always be at the Basketball Courts.  Please enter Lynndale Park from 68th and 189th and this will take you straight down to the parking lot.  We will have a staff member stationed by the parking lot who will greet you when you arrive.  

 

LATE ARRIVALS & EARLY PICK UPS

If you are running late to camp and arrive after 10:00 am, please bring your camper to the Basketball Courts for sign in.  You will need to call one of the camp numbers (listed below) and someone will meet you at your car for sign in.

If you are picking your camper up before 3:00 pm for an early pick up, please pick your camper up at the Basketball Courts for sign out.  You will need to call one of the camp numbers (listed below) and someone will meet you at your car for sign out.

Please enter Lynndale Park from 68th and 189th and this will take you straight down to the parking lot.

PAPERWORK

We’ve gone digital!  Please make sure your campers General Release Form is filled out on Monday morning before you arrive.  If you have not yet filled out paperwork you can do that by clicking here.  This form will only need to be completed once for the summer.

BACKPACKS

Each camper will receive a backpack on Monday morning instead of a camp shirt.  Campers are asked to bring these backpacks with them each day to camp so they can carry their sack lunch, water bottles and jacket.  Campers will not be using cubbies this year.  Please make sure your camper has a sweatshirt or jacket each day in their backpack so they’re prepared for all types of weather!

MASKS

Per Governor Inslee’s order, all campers will be required to wear masks while at camp.  Yes, we know it’s hot and they can be uncomfortable!  We will allow campers to step away from the group to bring their masks down and get some nice deep breaths of fresh air!  We will also be ensuring all campers get plenty of water breaks throughout the day.  If your camper arrives to camp without a mask we will have disposable masks for your camper. 

CAMP HOURS

Extended Care AM:  7:00 – 9:30 am

Camp:  9:30 am – 3:30 pm

Extended Care PM:  3:30 – 6:00 pm

* You must be pre-registered for Extended Care.

First and foremost, we are lucky to be an outdoor camp.  The regulations from the Health District tell us to get the kids outside as much as possible and we are thankful that we are already set up to do that.  We are also thankful that our park is HUGE, 40 acres worth of space to explore. We can spread out and not have any one area overly congested.  With that said, campers will be divided into groups that will consist of 8 campers, 1 Junior Counselor and 1 Counselor.  These will be their core groups that they stay with throughout the week.  Each group will have a schedule that will designate where they will be located in the park at any given moment.  They will rotate around the park to the various locations so that there are only 10 people at any given location at a time. Just like in years past, our counselors will get to plan their own activities for the week based on our planning requirements: science, literature, art, games, etc.  However, the plans will be approved based on their ability to be done while socially distancing from each other.  We are choosing to restrict the use of playgrounds, shared equipment, group games, etc until we can ensure it is safe to do so.  This means that many of our traditions will need to change as well (hopefully just for this year).   We feel the weight of keeping your children safe AND being able to have a fun (though distanced) environment for them to play, laugh and run around.

We have several safety steps that we are implementing this year.

  1. We will be having drop-off and pick-up in three separate locations this year.  These locations will be at the Tennis Courts, the Basketball Courts and finally outside Lynndale Elementary.  You will be notified the week prior as to what group your child will be in and your drop-off/pick up location. 
  2. Upon your arrival at the drop-off location, you as a parent, will remain in your car.  You will drive up to the first “check point” where your child’s temperature will be taken.  The parent will be asked a few screening questions about their child and if all goes well, you will then move on to the second check point.  At this time, parents will be asked to sign their child in, and your child will get out of the car and walk to their counselor group.  If your child has a fever, is showing symptoms of being sick or if they have been around someone who is sick with COVID 19,  then they will not be able to attend camp that day and will need to meet the guidelines for returning to camp as stated by the Health District.
  3. To cut down on touchpoints, we will be moving our paperwork to digital copies.  Please go to the Kamp Kook info page (https://www.lynnwoodwa.gov/Community/Play-Lynnwood/Classes-Activities/Youth-Activities/Sign-up-for-Kamp-Kookamunga) to fill out your General Release form.
  4. We will not be using the cubbies this year, so each child will be receiving a drawstring backpack to hold their personal items.  For this summer, the backpacks will be replacing the camper t-shirts.
  5. Each Counselor group will have a wagon!  Within the wagon they will have a traveling hand washing station, hand sanitizer, and an individual bag of supplies for each camper.  These bags will consist of markers, pens, scissors, glue sticks, etc.  At the end of the week the counselors will sanitize each item and create new bags for the next week.
  6. We will be supplying and encouraging our counselors to wear masks while at camp.  We are therefore encouraging, but not mandating, that our campers wear masks as well.  As temperatures rise this summer, we know that it may become uncomfortable to wear a mask while out in the sun.  We are going to error on the side of staying 6 feet apart, rather than enforcing mask wearing.  If there is a mandate that comes from our Governor, the Snohomish Health District, the Mayor of Lynnwood, etc then we will follow their guidelines.
  7. We have cancelled all of our “adventure” field trips for the summer, however, we still plan to go to the Lynnwood Pool to swim throughout the week.  Since we are a program run by the Recreation Center, we have been working closely with the Aquatics division as they plan how they will run during Phase 3 and 4.  We have decided that 4 groups will go to the pool at a time on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.  Each group will have their own van that they will travel to and from the Rec Center.  The vans will then be disinfected and ready for another group the following day.  The total numbers of swimmers allowed is being greatly reduced and we will make up the majority of the swimmers during these time frames.
  8. Let’s talk about rain for a moment.  Although we typically have access to Lynndale Elementary as our rainy day site, we will not be able to ensure social distancing if we have to move the whole group into the gym.  Therefore, on rainy days we will utilize our park shelters, the undercover area at Lynndale Elementary and we might go hide under the trees.  Please help us out on these days by sending your kids in a raincoat or send warm clothes.  And let’s hope we don’t get the wildfires this summer that drove us all inside the last few summers!  YIKES!

In this time, it is important to plan for safety but I know that your campers want to know that camp is going to be fun this year.  Here are some of the fun things that will still happen this summer:

  1. Based on the drop off location, we will be dividing our camp into three blocks or mini camps.  These “mini camps” will be able to have distanced “Opening and Closings” together.  (ex. Each group is sitting in a tennis court with another group in another tennis court).  They will get to sing, and watch their counselors do silly things.
  2. We will still have Wacky Wednesday dress up days.
  3. We will still do costumes on Friday and (maybe) do skits.
  4. We will still do VERB and literature and science and games and crafts and nature hikes and the list goes on!
  5. My personal favorite is:  3 mini camps means 3x the awards, 3x the prizes and 3x the counselors that will get a bucket of water poured on them on Friday afternoon!  :0)
