Safety Measures

Back to Basics follows all local and state guidance for summer camps. We are awaiting information on protocols for summer 2021 and will post our updated procedures here. We ran several successful weeks of camp last summer--with no Covid cases linked to our program. You can trust that our program is a clean and safe environment for your children.


All adults, coaches and staff are required to wear masks on camp grounds. Campers are not required to wear masks at this time, based on New York State guidelines.

Health Screening

  • Prior to camp each day, parents/guardians must screen their child for signs of illness (cough, fever, shortness of breath, and fatigue). If any signs of illness are present, KEEP THEM HOME.

  • A Covid Health Screening form must be completed for each child and staff member the first morning of camp.

  • Temperatures will be taken upon arrival. Any camper with a temperature of 100.4 or higher will not be able to attend.


Drop-off Procedure

  • Drive up to identified drop-off area. Your child will be greeted by a coach. Their temperature will be taken and if below 100.4, they can enter the building. Coaches will dispense hand sanitizer in each camper’s hand upon arrival, prior to touching basketballs and throughout the day.

  • If a parent/guardian needs to speak to the camp director, they will be asked to park and next to your car for the camp director to come over.

Pick Up Procedure

Parents/Guardians can park their cars and wait next to it. A staff member will take your name and bring your child out to you.

Camp Modifications & Guidelines

  • All coaches will encourage hand washing and dispense hand sanitizer at regular intervals throughout the day.

  • Camp attendance will be capped at 80 children per session.

  • Camp groups will be small (limited to 8-10 children). Campers will stay with their group and coach the entire day to reduce contacts. 

  • When campers are indoors, they will stay 3-6 feet apart whenever possible.

  • Time spent outdoors will be increased.

  • Fans will be used indoors to circulate air.

  • Camp activities will focus on drills, contests and games where a safe distance can be maintained between children (e.g. Around the World, Lay-up Contest, Hot Shot).

  • Camp equipment will be sanitized throughout the day.

  • Campers must bring their own water bottle(s) with their name clearly printed on it. Please provide enough water to last through the entire day at camp.

This form must be completed the morning of your child's first day of camp. Please print it and bring it with you. All camp employees must also complete this form.
