FAQs for Parent Child Weekends
Here are some answers to your questions regarding what Sky Ranch is going to look like for Parent Child Weekends.
Will we have to be tested to attend a Parent Child Weekend?
No. You will receive a health screen questionnaire via email prior to your arrival that will need to be completed and returned within 24 hours of your event. All attendees will undergo a temperature check upon arrival. If fever of 100.0 or higher at initial check you will not be allowed admittance and we will gladly reschedule your visit or process a refund for the event.
Will families and staff be required to wear face coverings?
Sky Ranch will provide every attendee with a neck gator (buff) that can be used as a face covering and worn around your neck. Face coverings will not be required when you are able to appropriately social distance from non-family members. They will be utilized by our staff when unable to maintain physical distancing. Due to the state mask mandate, we would ask that you wear a face covering whenever you are in a public space or activities and cannot maintain distancing requirements, Sky Ranch will make every effort to provide meeting rooms, activities, and common spaces large enough to provide for adequate social distancing.
What will our accommodations be like?
We will be providing private accommodations for all of our Parent Child attendees. You and your child(ren) will have a private sleeping room as well as a private bathroom. If you have not paid for upgraded private accommodations, you will need to bring your own linens to fit a twin size bed (sheets or sleeping bag) and towels.
What will meals be like?
Our dining hall will be set up to accommodate appropriate physical distancing. We are working with local and state health departments, following CDC guidelines and, as always, adhering to and/or exceeding industry best practices for safety and cleanliness in our food handling areas. Your family unit will have their own table space during meals.
Will there be a nurse on staff for the weekend?
Yes, we will have a nurse available during the retreat. The nurse will do temperature/wellness checks both mornings of the retreat.
What happens if we are potentially exposed to COVID-19 during the retreat?
If Sky Ranch is made aware of a positive case, we will notify anyone who was potentially exposed. We recommend following CDC guidelines for possible exposure.
What additional safety measures are you putting in place to mitigate the spread of COVID-19?
- Adjusting activity schedules to accommodate smaller groups
- Additional hand washing stations located throughout the property
- Additional hand sanitizer available across the property
- Routine cleaning and heightened disinfecting throughout facilities, including activities and equipment
- Signage posted to reinforce important behaviors
What happens if my camper or my family is potentially exposed to COVID-19 while at camp?
Once Sky Ranch is made aware of a positive case at camp, we will notify every camper family from that pod. Staff who had direct contact with the positive case will be quarantined and tested. Family members from the affected pod should follow CDC guidelines for possible exposure.
