COVID-19 Health & Safety Policy
Skate The Foundry is committed to ensuring your health and safety. We will be adhering to all current Centers for Disease Control, state, and local municipality recommendations and regulations. We will keep you informed of any Covid-19 related changes or updates that may impact Skate The Foundry and/or your activities with us.
- All campers and their parents/guardians/siblings must wear masks when checking in during the morning and picking campers up in the afternoon.
- All campers must wear masks during group activities where social distancing is difficult, such as morning meeting, stretching, morning group lessons, and while taking a break at our designated area.
- Campers are not required to wear masks while they skateboard with social distancing, however, they must have their masks under their chin so that if someone comes near them or they begin talking with their friends, they can put on their masks immediately. They must follow the instructions when the Foundry staff asks them to wear it.
- Please note that Foundry has a right to change this rule to wearing masks at all times if campers are not aware of putting their masks on when social distancing is difficult, such as skateboarding with their friends.
- At Skate The Foundry (indoors) for the inclement weather: All campers and instructors must wear a mask for the entire time. They will always have the right to remove their mask after they inform a staff member. Staff and instructors will also keep a close eye on campers to make sure they are taking breaks frequently.
- If campers purposely do not follow our mask policy as well as other camp policy, a phone call will be made to the parent and the camper will need to be picked up immediately.
Types of Required Masks:
- We do not accept bandana or neck cover/gaiter.
- Masks must go over the ear or head in order to stay well in the camper’s face. Please see the images above.
- Campers must wear a washed, clean mask every day. Please wash the mask every day, or prepare another mask(s) for the next day.
- If the camper’s mask seems to come down consistently, we have a right to have them wear a new reusable mask that we prepare.
- If the camper refuses to wear our new reusable mask, or do not follow any of our policy, a phone call will be made to the parent and the camper will need to be picked up immediately.
- Even when campers wearing masks, they must keep the social distance as much as possible.
- Check-In Procedures: Campers will be required to use hand sanitizer, have their temperature checked, and asked a series of Wellness questions.
- Scheduled hand washing breaks will be built into the camp schedule. In addition, hand sanitizer stations will be placed at throughout Skate The Foundry.
- At public skateparks, we will provide a hygiene station that will include an area to wash hands with soap, alcohol spray, alcohol wipes, and hand sanitizer.
- Campers are not allowed to touch other campers and the instructors. They must not touch other people’s belongings including Foundry items.
- Instructors have the right to stop all campers from trying a trick that may have a higher risk of getting injured. Instructors will also have minimum physical interaction with campers.
- Campers must wear safety gear (knee/elbow pads and wrist guards) to prevent a minor cut. This policy is to insure that our instructors will have a minimum physical contact with campers for a first aid care, such as cleaning one’s blood.
- Please self isolate for 10 days upon return to PA if you have traveled to the states on Travel Quarantine List before coming to our program.
