Coronavirus/COVID-19 Statement
The novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is believed to spread mainly from person-to-person contact. As a result, federal, state, and local governments and federal and state health agencies recommend social distancing and have, in many locations, prohibited the congregation of groups of people.

The City of Fort Lauderdale (COFL) has created new protocols and put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19; however, COFL cannot guarantee that you or your child(ren) will not become infected with COVID-19. Further, attending any program may increase your child(ren) risk of contracting COVID-19.

Day of Registration

Temperature will be taken, if temperature is higher than 99.0 they will not be allowed to enter the building and register at that time. They will have 24 hours to come back without a fever or send a designated person to complete the registration process with payment. If they refuse to have their temperature taken, they cannot register for camp. If they pass the screening, they will enter one at a time with mask.
2. Parents that shows up with spouse, children, and/or other family members, will be required to be screened (CDC guideline) prior to being permitted to enter the building. There will be a designated seating area for those not completing the registration process and payment. The area will be sanitized upon them leaving.
