Our awesome summer camp program is winding down with only 29 more days to go. Despite the circumstances, we have been able to operate a clean and fun facility for all of our campers thus far. As of July 1, 2020, an official visited to inspect our operations and reported that we have been one of the most impressive sites they had seen so far and to "keep doing what we are doing." That includes daily temperature checks, mask regulations, the enforcement of social distancing procedures, regularly disinfecting and cleaning and much more! Here at AAOC, your child's safety and livelihood mean the most to us and we look forward to continually serving YOU, our wonderful community. To our parents, community, staff, and supporters, thank you for being so very patient with us.

Please read the below information in its entirety regarding our upcoming plans for summer camp.
Although we are extremely excited about this year's program, we are equally determined to create a safe and healthy atmosphere for your children amid COVID-19. Due to the outbreak, we are enforcing a series of policies that will be practiced 24/7 by all staff members and we ask that you help us out by also following these measures.
On day one, all parents will be given a questionnaire/waiver regarding COVID-19 which must be completed and returned on the same day. Every day when you arrive: Each child must be signed in outside the entrance door. We will also be checking the temperatures of campers at outdoor stations. Each child's temperature must be checked before they are allowed to enter the facility. We kindly ask that if your child has been previously exposed to COVID-19, is recovering from COVID-19, or is currently showing any symptoms, please keep your child at home to help stop the spread of the virus. For more information about symptoms, please see here: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-nCoV/index.html.
Inside the camp: Staff members will be routinely disinfecting objects, and surfaces with the suggested formula per CDC. Routine handwashing and sanitizing will also be required by campers and staff members. Seating will be organized to comply with social distancing. There will be plenty of signage throughout the facility with reminders about social distancing, sanitizing and other rules to remember.
Our staff: Each staff member will be tested for COVID-19 before being admitted back at work. Moreover, out staff Is currently being briefed on the proper procedures as outlined by CDC and local health organizations. Each day, the temperatures of all staff members will be tested via no touch thermometers that will be placed on their foreheads. We will continually be on the lookout for information as it becomes available. Here are a few links from CDC with information pertaining to operating an organization like ours:
Here is a great resource from CDC with more information about talking to your children about COVID-19: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/daily-life-coping/talking-with-children.html.
If have any questions, comments, etc. please do not hesitate to reach out to us! We look forward to seeing your smiling faces in a few weeks.
Due to MNPS' school closure for the remainder of the school year (https://twitter.com/MetroSchools/status/1250559135839596544?s=20), we are looking to open summer camp earlier this year with a goal of mid May. Our original dates of operation were June 1-July 31. However, this is all contingent upon approval from the governor and mayor. As soon as we receive this approval, we will notify you all.
Also, please note that due to the MNPS closure for the remainder of the school year, holding fees will no longer be due after this week (April 13-April 17). If you have any outstanding balances, please be sure to coordinate with Mrs.Caroline as soon as possible.
We can't wait to see your smiling faces for the upcoming summer!
Again, please stay healthy and safe and feel free to reach out at any time.
We have secured a new location! 😁
