What to Expect
CHELSEA PIERS SUMMER CAMP 2022
IMPORTANT HEALTH & SAFETY GUIDELINES & CAMP FAQs
We are committed to keeping kids safe. All operations, from check-in procedures to daily activities have been designed to deliver a safe, fun and healthy experience for our campers, staff and families. In Summer 2021 we implemented health and safety protocols based on guidance specific to the operation of summer camps from the World Health Organization (WHO), the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the American Camp Association (ACA). We successfully held summer camps for 2,500 campers following these protocols and as a result, the camp was 100% COVID-free. For 2022 we will continue to follow all guidance from the State on safe operations of camp. Chelsea Piers employees, staff and coaches are 100% fully vaccinated.
Staff Health Protocols
All camp staff and coaches are 100% vaccinated and are required to wear protective face coverings at all times. Camp staff shall also practice enhanced handwashing and health practices, including covering coughs and sneezes with a tissue or the corner of the elbow and assisting children with such increased handwashing and healthy practice throughout the camp day.
Protective Face Coverings
We will follow all guidance from the CDC on face coverings. All campers and staff must wear face coverings at all times.
Chelsea Piers coaches and staff are 100% vaccinated. Per Key to NYC Vaccine Mandates, all campers age 5 and over must show proof of vaccination in order to participate in camp programming.

Parents receive 20-minutes of free parking when checking their children into camp. Parents are not allowed to remain inside the facilities during camp.
Enhanced Disinfecting Procedures
For the safety and protection of our campers, our cleaning and maintenance protocol will continue to be maintained at the highest standard throughout the property. Our teams have increased the frequency of these processes, upgraded our supplies and disinfectants to comply with CDC guidelines and new industry standards, and increased the visibility and number of hand sanitizing stations. Chelsea Piers maintenance staff, coaches and counselors will also be responsible for wiping down and disinfecting any and all shared sports equipment between sessions throughout the day.
As we do every summer, we will have a medical office and a nurse at camp this summer. The office will be used for first aid and to dispense pre-authorized daily medications. There will be a separate sick room used for ill campers.
If during the camp day a child feels ill or is determined by the nurse to have an observable illness, such as constant coughing or respiratory distress, or a temperature over 100 degrees Farenheit, the child will be escorted to a designated sick room for their safety and the safety of others. As in normal circumstances, parents will be notified immediately to arrange for pick-up. A staff member will remain near the child for supervision.
Chelsea Piers will follow State and/or Board of Health requirements to support notification and contact tracing protocols.
Individual boxed lunches are provided to all Full Day campers. We are an allergy-conscious camp and do not serve any peanut products. Gluten-Free and Vegetarian Options available.
