Restore Illinois Phase 4 Contingency Plan

Restore Illinois Phase 4 Contingency Plan

Good Times is scheduled to start Monday, June 21st and everyone’s wondering what we have planned. I wish I could see the future and tell you exactly what to expect; however, it’s truly a lot of wait and see. Given the uncertainty and the need for families to plan ahead, this is our goal moving forward. It is unknown if bussing and field trips will be permitted for day camps. According to the DCEO guidelines, Phase 4 of the Restore Illinois Plan requires camps not to take field trips outside their designated areas. Perhaps as we approach Phase 5, these guidelines will be amended to allow camps to take field trips and bus their campers.

In the event that restrictions are eased

Good Times will follow strict Covid protocol and run camp as close to normal as possible with our regular rates as posted.

In the event that restrictions
are NOT eased

Good Times will alter its program as follows:

  • Camp rates would be discounted to $375 weekly or
    $100 daily.
  • Camp would be exclusively based at St. Catherine Laboure in Glenview. All other bases would be closed due to no bussing. See attachment with a tentative schedule.
  • Camp hours would be shortened to 8:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m., with extended hours of 7:30 a.m.–5:30 p.m. available for an extra fee, not to exceed normal summer rates of
    $450 per week.
  • Camp would spend the entire day at St. Catherine’s engaged in fun activities. There will be no use of busses, no field trips, and no swimming.
  • Camp will always take necessary precautions as laid out by the IDPH and CDC. Precautions will be taken regarding PPE, cleaning and disinfecting, social distancing, and group sizes. Groups will be small in size and will rotate through various activities throughout the day.
  • If restrictions were to ease while we were already in session, camp would immediately take advantage and start taking field trips. Extra fees for field trips would apply, rates not to exceed normal summer rates of
    $450 per week.

This summer's plans might change and I need to know what my options are.
