Guidelines

  • Staff will have their temperatures taken each day using a non-contact thermometer.

  • If your camper is not feeling well please do not bring them to camp.
  • No visitors will be allowed on RRR premises during camp.
  • All frequently touched surfaces will be cleaned and sanitized throughout the day.  This includes the reins, horn, pommel of the saddle and riding helmets.
  • Frequent handwashing will be encouraged and hand sanitizer will be available throughout the Ranch buildings.
  • Campers will be divided into groups/cohorts with the same staff.  These groups will be consistent throughout the week and will maintain proper distancing both within their own group and the larger camp.
  • At lunch councillors will retrieve the bin assigned to their group and deliver it to the area where they have been assigned.  They will be the only ones touching the items and giving it to the proper owner.  Please make sure your camper’s lunch is in a proper lunch bag/box with their name on it.
  • Each group will have its own activity equipment whenever possible.  If not the equipment will be cleaned and sanitized before the next group uses it.
  • While close contact might be unavoidable among members of the group, physical distancing, and safety etiquette will be encouraged where possible.
  • Face masks (provide your own) should be worn when physical distancing of at least 2 metres cannot be maintained between groups.
  • Groups will NOT mix with other groups at any time.
  • There will be no mixing of cohorts in washrooms/changerooms.  These will be frequently cleaned and disinfected.
