We are dedicated to health and safety year-round, in light of the COVID-19 situation, we follow heightened precautionary measures for all our Holiday Camp programmes.

Our summer Camps are running at Stamford American School and we are proud to be able to operate in this high quality, international schools setting who is experienced in adhering to the guidelines by the Education Bureau (EDB) and Centre for Health Protection (CHP)

We keep the safety of all attendees at the forefront of our planning and decision making. Our camp offerings for this summer have been hand-crafted to ensure safety is top of mind. We look forward to offering our full-range of camps including our wide-range of sports camps as conditions improve.


TEMPERATURE SCREENINGS

We will be conducting temperature screenings for ALL visitors at the above entrances before anyone accesses the campus. Anyone with a temperature of 37.5°C (and above) will not be permitted to enter the school’s premises. 

SAFEENTRY CHECK-IN/OUT PROCESS

All children and staff will be required to check-in and check-out each time they enter or leave the campus.

TRAVEL HISTORY & HEALTH DECLARATION

All staff and children entering the campus must submit their latest travel and health declaration after booking. This is a mandatory requirement.

PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (MASKS/FACE SHIELDS)

As per CHP standards, all children are expected to come wearing masks (with a couple of spares) and will be expected to keep them on unless eating snacks or drinking water.

RESTRICTION OF VISITORS & NO FRIDAY SHOWCASES

We encourage parents to avoid entering the campus unless necessary (e.g. to accompany a child below 8 years of age for the first day of camp).

At this time essential Parent access will be limited to sign-in and sign-out times. 

Parent Cafe will be closed during summer camps, and the parent showcases on Friday (if applicable) will be held virtually.

SAFE DISTANCING & FIXED SEATING

Campers are required to remain at least 1m apart in class and at snack times, all queues (both at the canteen and within the sessions themselves) will be spaced out accordingly as well. In addition to this, we will set up fixed seating and children will be organized into groups of 5 which they will stick to for the whole week for class group work and seating arrangements in the canteen. All this will be monitored by Teachers/TAs and Safe Management Ambassadors.

Each individual camp programme will follow the most relevant advisories for that given camp. 

STAGGERED BREAK TIMINGS 

Limiting interactions during movement breaks amongst children in the various activities is another measure we're implementing to reduce the risk of contamination.

Children will have just as much fun during their break as in our previous camps, the only difference here will be the reduced number of children in any one area. 

ON-LINE MERCHANDISE 

To ensure best hygiene practices and safer distancing, we will suspend our Merchandise table for the time being. As part of the camp fees, your child will receive a Camp Asia t-shirt and bag.

REFUND POLICY

To assure our families in these uncertain times - we are offering refunds on all Camps if we are forced to cancel due to new government advisories/restrictions (e.g. school closures) and cannot deliver the camps.

INCREASED FREQUENCY OF CLEANING

Our maintenance and cleaning teams will be conducting a deep clean of the school and school buses as frequently as the CHP guidance requires. 

 


We look forward to welcoming all families, old and new, to our exciting Summer Camps this year and next and would like to also thank all members of our community for their support as we work tirelessly towards keeping our camp locations a SAFE & HAPPY environment for all! 


 

FAQs

Here are some questions we often get asked about our response to COVID-19. You may find the answer to your own question here.

If not, please feel free to call us on +852 3467 4567 or email us at info@campasia.hk 

A: We follow strict guidelines on campus to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all students, staff, and members of the community.

  • All students and staff must wear a mask at all times when they are on campus 
  • A thermal screener will take the temperature of all visitors when they enter campus
  • Physical distancing will be monitored while students are on campus, with desks 1 meter apart from each other in classrooms
  • Classrooms and materials will be cleaned thoroughly at the end of every day
  • Hand sanitizer will be located throughout the school, and we will promote good hand hygiene to all students and staff while on campus

A:Yes. If someone connected to Camp Asia tests positive for Covid-19, camps will be suspended to disinfect the camp premises. We will follow all CHP guidance regarding deep cleaning and/or closure - and parents will be informed immediately. If camp is suspended under the request of the CHP after commencement, families will receive a credit for future use.

A: Yes, regarding CHP guidelines, all close contacts are to be quarantined. You should inform Camp Asia immediately if a member of your household has been brought to a quarantine center. Your child will not be able to attend a camp if any member of your household has been ordered to a quarantine center.

A: We have adopted strategies at school to help ensure that physical distancing is maintained at all times while students are on campus. 

  • Desks are a meter apart in the classrooms
  • A camp instructor and an assistant will supervise all activities and classrooms to ensure proper supervision at all times
  • Groups will be kept apart while they are on campus to limit interaction between students outside of their particular class
  • Arrival and Dismissal procedures will be set up to allow for students to physical distance
  • Both stairways will be used during the day to allow for more space when walking between activities
  • Parents/Guardians will be encouraged to physical distance while they are waiting for students after Camp Asia finishes

A: We will allow parents to enter campus during the registration on Day 1 of Camp Asia. After that, we urge Parents and Guardians to limit time on campus to pick up and drop-offs only. Even then, we would discourage any non-essential access to parents/visitors whose children are old enough to enter campus during sign-in/out each day.

For Dismissal after camp, we will set out an area outside of campus to allow parents/guardians to line up so that they can practice physical distancing. We ask Parents and Guardians to share this information with any caregivers who may assist with pick-up and drop-off duties. We hope this request is taken within the context of having everyone playing their part to minimize any additional risk of community spread. 
The parent cafe will be closed during Camp Asia.

A:Camp Asia will take precautions leading up to and throughout our Camp programs this summer.

  • All staff will be First Aid trained and have an understanding of all of our Health & Safety policies and procedures
  • Deep cleaning of materials and classrooms will happen before the start of Camp Asia and throughout the camp programs
  • Mask wearing is compulsory for all staff and students on campus.

A: Temperature-taking will be conducted daily, once before entering the premises. If your child’s temperature is 37.5 degrees Celsius or higher, the camp Nurse will contact you to ask that your child be taken to see a doctor. The camp nurses, instructors, teaching assistants, and the camp Asia team also look out for other flu-like symptoms such as a cough and runny nose and recommend parents to bring their child to seek further medical assistance.

If a child informs their teacher that he/she is unwell, even though he/she may not be running a fever or showing symptoms, the nurse will reach out to parents. In these cases, we hope children and parents can all play their part and practice social responsibility by seeing a doctor before coming to camp. Children should return to camp only when they have fully recovered and are deemed fit to return by a doctor.

A: Our cleaning staff will ensure a high level of cleaning takes place regularly throughout Camp Asia.

  • We have a cleaning team of 12 members who will clean all classrooms and materials used during the day.
  • Bathrooms, hallway areas, handrails, and other frequently used areas will be cleaned periodically during the day
  • A more comprehensive deep clean of classrooms will happen over the weekend before the start of each camp week
  • The buses that are going to be used for transportation will be cleaned before and after usage every day
