Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation has thoroughly researched COVID safety precautions, working with local, state, and national organizations to determine best practices for our summer day camps. COVID guidelines specific to each day camp will be sent to families in their confirmation packets, approximately 1 week prior to the camp week the child is attending. Please review guidelines carefully, as we are counting on you to help us keep our community healthy! We will continue to monitor guidelines and keep families informed should guidelines change; at this time we will require all campers and staff to wear masks when indoors and any time social distancing is not possible.
Our Communicable Disease Plan is now available for your review.
