Statement on COVID-19

This page should answer the majority of your questions, but if you have further questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to us

via email at info@snidermountainranch.ca  or by phone at (506) 432-6362.

 Is camp running this summer?

Yes! The Government of New Brunswick announced that as we move into the Yellow Phase, overnight summer camps will be able to open as of June 19, 2020.

What changes can we expect for this summer? What protective health measures have been put in place?

 

Drive-thru drop off & pick up:​

  • Drop off: Campers will be given a temperature and symptom check before being signed in. You will drop your camper off at the door of their cabin and have the opportunity to meet their cabin leaders. We ask that the ONLY person leaving the vehicle is the camper(s).

  • Pick up: You will pick up you camper(s) from their cabin after signing them out. Please do NOT exit your vehicle.​

Cabin bubbles

  • Your camper will be assigned to a cabin for the week. This will become their bubble.

  • Physical distancing will not need to be maintained within each bubble, but will be maintained between bubbles.

  • All activities, mealtimes, and morning/evening bathroom times will be scheduled by bubble.

  • Transparent vinyl has been installed at the head of each bed to prevent the spread of germs.

Health & hygiene practices:

  • Campers will be instructed at the beginning of the day and reminded regularly of good hygiene practices (ie. hand washing, coughing/sneezing into a tissue or elbow, physical distancing from other bubbles).

  • Campers and staff will be temperature & symptom checked daily.

Cleaning & Disinfecting procedures:

  • We have a dedicated cleaning staff, who will thoroughly clean and disinfect the building regularly.

  • Bathrooms will be disinfected every hour or more frequently during peak hours, as well as between scheduled cabin times in the morning and at bedtime.

  • Tables will be disinfected between uses during mealtimes.

  • High-touch surfaces in cabins will be disinfected three times a day.

Meal times:

  • We have installed plexiglass in front of the serving window (think Subway).

  • Meal times will staggered to maintain physical distancing between cabins.

Program & Activities:

  • Recreation staff will wear face masks in any instance where physical distancing cannot be maintained to safely run an activity (ie. assisting campers mount a horse)

  • All program equipment will be sanitized after use by a cabin.

Will roommate requests and specialty camps be affected by operational changes?

Due to the bubble requirements, we cannot honour roommate requests if campers are not signed up for the same camp. For example, if Johnny is registered for Radical Ranchers on July 5th and Jack is signed up for Trailblazers on July 5th, Johnny and Jack can not be roommates as they will be participating in different activities and therefore will be placed in separate cabin bubbles. If you need to make a change to a camp please contact us.

What happens if my camper has symptoms?

  • Campers and staff will be screened and temperature checked at arrival and daily during the week. Anyone with 2 symptoms (or 1 symptom if that symptom is purple toes or fingers) will be sent home, and parents will instructed to self-isolate the child and call 811 for direction.

  • A up-to-date list of symptoms can be found here.

When will deposits be due?

$100 deposits are due by June 1st, otherwise we cannot guarantee your seat. Remaining balance is due no later than the Friday before camp.
