The Latest News from Our Y Concerning COVID 19

As the world is changing around us, we want to keep you informed of all that we are doing to make the YMCA as safe place for kids this summer. This page will serve as "The Hub" for COVID-19 related information from our YMCA. Thank you for your patience.


UPDATES:

  • NEW! An updated version of our COVID-19 Operations Manual has been released. This version includes all residential camp COVID-19 measures as well. 

  • NEW! A camp admission form is required on the first day of camp each week for all campers and staff. This helps us to determine if your child is symptom free and allowed to attend camp. Please note, the ONLY symptom that will not allow admission is a fever of greater than 100.4 degrees. Other symptoms will be monitored throughout the day. 

  • NEW! Thanks to the generous support of one of our funders, if you qualify for free school lunch, you qualify for FREE Camp at both STEM Camps in Weber/Davis, Traditional Camp at our Ogden Preparatory Academy Campus, and Day Camp in Park City!
     
  • STEM Camp in Ogden is housed at Ogden Preparatory Academy and STEM Camp in Davis is at Layton Christian Academy.

  • Heber City Day Camp closed due to low enrollment and the inability to secure a location due to COVIS-19. Park City Camps are still open! 

  • Camp Roger, Sessions 1-3 Cancelled. Please read this letter from CEO, Rich West and Lee Vaughan, Director of Camping

  • We are continuing to work with our local Health Departments concerning guidelines for cleaning, check-in and group sizes. Within the next 2 weeks, you can expect to see a comprehensive plan outlining how our YMCA will be operating summer programs. This document will outline check-in procedures, best practices at our camps, cleaning processes, and so much more. 
     
  • Those on our mailing list will begin receiving weekly updates on Fridays regarding any camp changes, procedures, and policies. In the event of a major change or emergency, we may update you more often. If you'd like to sign up to receive these alerts, click here
     
  • Weber State University has made the tough decision to close their campuses for the summer. We have secured a new location for our WSU (Layton) STEM Camp, and are working hard to secure the other. 
     
    • The WSU STEM Camp (Layton Campus) will now be housed at Layton Christian Academy. Please contact the Weber YMCA Community Family Center if you have questions. 801-839-3385
       
  • In order to ensure that our camp staff is properly trained and that our facilities are ready for camp, YMCA Camp Roger has cancelled Session 1 (Week of June 7th - 12th). However, we have opened up the week of June 29th as a camp session! All other camp sessions remain open. If you have any questions, please email our Wasatch Camp Team.
     
  • With more and more families needing childcare so that they can return to work, the community needs our support more than ever. Many of our families haven't been working and have been struggling to provide an income for their basic needs. Would you consider making a gift to the YMCA to support these families that need a safe place for their kids while they go back into the workforce? If so, visit ymcautah.org/give to see how you can help.
