TO AVOID EXPOSURE TO DISEASE, THE COLORADO MOUNTAIN RANCH FAMILY, STAFF, AND POLICIES ALL FOLLOW THE GUIDELINES AS OUTLINED BY:
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html
Colorado State https://covid19.colorado.gov/
Boulder County Health Department https://www.bouldercounty.org/families/disease/covid-19/
Staff members are in residence at the Ranch as a family. Regular temperature and health checks, masking, and social distancing are all part of daily life.
2021 COVID PRECAUTIONS FOR EVERYONE
1.) Masks will be worn indoors and outdoors as specified by the CDC, Colorado State and Boulder County Public Health.
2.) Social distancing is practiced whenever possible for all children, guests, and staff members.
3.) Activities take place outdoors in the open air and sunshine.
4.) All equipment is disinfected between groups.
5.) Hand washing for 20 seconds is essential many times throughout the day, in addition to before and after meals and using the toilet.
6.) Hand sanitizer is conveniently provided throughout the Ranch in areas where soap and water are not.
7.) The plan is for CMR staff members to each be vaccinated for Covid immunity.
2021 COVID PRECAUTIONS SPECIFIC FOR SUMMER DAY CAMP
Gather your children to watch this video, made by the CDC for Camps.
2021 CMR Programs and Policies are designed to follow the CDC Suggestions for the Lowest Risk in Youth and Summer Camps : “Small groups of campers stay together all day, each day. Campers remain at least 6 feet apart and do not share objects. Outdoor activities are prioritized.”
1.) Each morning at check-in, campers will have their health and temperature checked by Ranch personnel before
boarding the bus.
2.) Camper group numbers are limited and remain consistent with their own counselor for the week.
3.) Individual groups will eat lunch outdoors distanced from other groups and not share food items.
4.) If a child becomes sick while in our care, we will call you immediately and care for them in isolation until you can as quickly as possible pick them up at the Ranch.
2021 BUS SAFETY IN TIME OF COVID
1.) Each camper always rides on the same bus only with others from their group plus one more group in the same program and close in age.
2.) To maintain social distancing on the buses, campers each have their own seat on their own bus. Campers may only
share a bus seat only if pre-designated as members of the same pod and pre-authorized by both sets of parents.
3.) Camper groups will ride on their bus with another group of campers also in their same program. These campers form a “Bus Pod.”
4.) Once in Camp, buses will be centrally parked and accessible throughout the day. Each camper’s bus seat will be their “personal cubby” for keeping their belongings separate from others.
5.) Masking is mandatory on the bus, and the windows will be down for air circulation, so be sure your camper brings a comfortable mask (and an extra!) and layers to wear for warmth. Everyone needs a warm jacket every day, no matter how warm it is in Boulder!
ADDITIONAL COVID PRECAUTIONS FOR WEDDINGS AND EVENTS
Group sizes must comply with the current restrictions in place by the Centers for Disease Control and Colorado State at the time of the event.
