General Policies

  • Any tuition paid is nonrefundable.
  • If the camps are mandated to close by the CDC, state, or local authorities, you will receive a full tuition refund if the program has not yet started. If the camp is mandated to close during a program, your tuition refund will be prorated.
  • The camp will follow all applicable public health orders and federal, state, and local guidance regarding mitigating the spread of COVID-19, which may include indoor and outdoor occupancy limits, rapid COVID-19 tests, daily symptom and temperature checks, social distancing protocols, face covering requirements, and other protocols.
  • The camp may require each camper to submit a current, signed health history that includes information in relation to the activities in which a camper may participate. This health history will include a description of any camp activities from which the camper should be exempted for health reasons; a record of past medical treatment, if any; a record of allergies and/or dietary restrictions; a statement from the custodial parent/guardian attesting that all immunizations required for school are up to date and including the actual date of last tetanus shot; a record of current medications, both prescribed and over-the-counter; and a description of any current physical, mental, or psychological conditions requiring medication, treatment, or special restrictions or considerations while at camp. The camp also recommends that all campers be vaccinated against COVID-19, provided that they are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine according to guidelines issued by the CDC and the applicable state or local public health agency.
  • As a safeguard during this uncertain time, Rocky Ridge recommends that you purchase a third party tuition/travel insurance plan which will protect your investment should you choose to cancel ahead of time or are unable to complete the camp. We have partnered with TravMark, which comes highly recommended by AM Skier, Rocky Ridge’s insurance provider. Please see this page for more information on how to sign up for insurance. Regardless of which insurance company you choose, please take note that often the best time to purchase this type of insurance is when you make your initial deposit.

 

Before You Arrive

  • We ask that you participate in only low-risk behaviors starting a week before you arrive on campus. Things to avoid include social gatherings with those outside your household, weddings, family events, sports tournaments, family trips, indoor dining at a restaurant, large events, and big group gatherings. Please do your best to keep our community healthy.
  • If possible, please take a COVID-19 test before traveling to campus.
  • If you are traveling on any kind of public transport to campus, please make sure to follow all safety guidelines provided by the transportation company. Please wear your mask and maintain social distancing wherever possible. Make sure to carry hand santizer and clean your hands with soap and hot water as much as possible.

 

Mitigation On Campus

  • Staff will be trained to identify COVID-19 symptoms. Any student who presents symptoms will be taken to one of our quarantine spaces and remain isolated until a health plan is devised by a health professional. Two private cabins have been set aside as isolation cabins should anyone show symptoms of COVID-19.
  • Enrollment for the 2021 season will be reduced.
  • Non-private cabins will have reduced sleeping capacity to allow at least 6 ft of distance between students.
  • Eating times will be staggered by cohort, and outdoor dining will encouraged whenever weather is nice.
  • Social-distancing will be observed throughout the campus and in all contexts.
  • Mask-wearing will be enforced at all times when students will be around each other, faculty, or staff.
  • Cleaning will follow recommended guidelines set forth by CDC and Larimer County.
  • Where possible, students will be assigned a specific practice cabin that will either be private or used by a set group of students (and no others).
  • No excursions into Estes Park or surrounding areas will be allowed in an effort to create a bubble on campus.
  • At this time, we are asking that members of the public (including family members) not attend recitals on campus. We will livestream all concerts this summer.
  • We will be following local health department guidance at all times. Please see the CDC, Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, and American Camp Association websites for COVID-19 guidance for residential summer camps.
