COVID Statement
Please note that the pandemic may cause changes in our operations that are unpredictable. We are planning for in-person camps and programs that follow guidelines established by the CDC and American Camp Association, including wearing masks, social distancing, sanitizing, small group sizes, and more outdoor activities. More detailed information will be provided when it becomes available, including state guidelines for summer camps and programs.

Summer 2021 Protocols
Westport Continuing Education (WCE) has established the following COVID protocols based on the CDC and American Camping Association guidelines. We will continue to adjust our policies and procedures based on the future guidelines issued by local officials and the state of Connecticut Department of Public Health and the Office of Early Childhood Development. As of

March 30, 2021: 
● Drop-off and pick-up of kids will occur outside. Parents / guardians should not enter buildings.
● Parents should report absences ahead of time.
● Staff and participants will be required to use masks at all times.
● Masks during sports and specific guidelines for sports will be issued via CIAC, state and local sources.
● Social Distancing: Participants will space 6’ apart. Group sizes will be limited to 16 students. Groups may increase to 18 in a space providing a minimum of 50 square feet of total indoor usable program space.
● Small groups will stay together in cohorts with the same staff.
● WCE will make its best effort to group together kids who are friends, neighbors, siblings, etc.
● Outdoor activities and “mask breaks” will be scheduled frequently.
● WCE expects all of its programs to have adequate health and safety supplies including hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes, masks, etc.
