Summer camp organizers plan to follow cdc coronavirus guidelines as many kids are ready for social interaction and fun this summer.

“last summer we could see when they come, you can tell that they were just cooped up for like the first two months of quarantine last year, then they came here and just wanted to explode.” Erin Olivares Said.

Camper safety is top priority -- as many groups will limit group sizes this summer.

“We are going to limit that 60-group size as much as we can and try to keep them in their smaller groups 15 strong , but that we way there not ya know breathing on each other or whatever touching all the same surfaces with them being sanitized in between.” Michelle Armentor Said.

Michelle Armentor with Acadiana Kids Club says five of their 10 weeks for summer camp sessions are already full.

“We are going to be on high alert for illnesses and sicknesses and we will check temperatures upon arrival just to ensure that everybody is being dropped off healthy and that ya know for signs of illness we will send home and exclude from camp.” Michelle Armentor Said.

The Children's Museum of Acadiana is also preparing for a safe summer camp. They plan on spending time outside, in hopes spread kids out more easily.

“Keeping them engaged by new experiences, out of the box things that they may not have been able to do at home, and then also taking outside when the weather is nice.” Carol Mcmanus Said.

Those at Children's Museum of Acadiana will have to answer questions about experiencing symptoms and have their temperature checked before participating in camp.
