Camp Levine COVID-19 Health & Safety

In planning for Camp Levine, the leadership team relied on recommendations from the consulting team of epidemiologists and infection preventionists at the University of Maryland Medical Center, as well as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Levine Music continues to consult with this team of specialists and will adjust our health and safety policies as they advise.

For more information on Levine’s work to keep our campuses safe and healthy, please visit our COVID-19 updates webpage and Return to Campus Guide.

Vaccinations

As part of our effort to provide the safest possible environment for students and employees, Camp Levine requires proof of vaccination for all eligible students and employees on-campus.

People are considered fully vaccinated 14 days after their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or 14 days after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine. If you do not meet these requirements, yet are eligible, you will not be granted access to campus.

Appropriate exemptions for medical and religious reasons will be approved on a case-by-case basis.

Masks

Students, families, campers and other visitors to campus must wear a surgical, KN95, KF94 or N95 mask. Cloth masks are no longer considered adequate facial coverings except for the use of approved singers and instrumentalists masks and bell covers, used when actively playing or singing. Faculty and staff will be required to wear a KN95, KF94 or N95 mask. Neck gaiters, bandanas, cloth masks, and any mask that contains a vent are not acceptable facial coverings. Anyone wearing one of these will be asked to replace it immediately. Campers are asked to bring their own mask from home. 

 Masks – Indoor Policy

As we serve a community of students of all ages and vaccinations are not yet available for our youngest community members, everyone must wear masks correctly to cover both nose and mouth at all times while indoors on campus in public spaces including hallways, studios, and offices regardless of vaccination status. 

Masks – Outdoor Policy

Students, faculty, and staff who are vaccinated are not required to wear masks outdoors when participating in activities at Levine. However, when unvaccinated students who are not currently eligible for vaccination are included, all individuals must wear masks regardless of vaccination status.

Reporting a Positive COVID-19 Status

It is imperative for families, faculty, and staff to report any confirmed cases of COVID-19 to Levine, as well as occasions of close contact with someone known to have tested positive for the virus. In such instances, all protocols for quarantining must be followed.

Please be advised that community members are advised to seek PCR testing. Negative results from rapid antigen tests cannot be accepted.

In the event of possible exposure or a positive case of COVID-19

Campers deemed to have exposure to a positive case of COVID-19 will be isolated and caregivers will be contacted to pick up their child as soon as possible. We require a proof of a negative PCR test before campers can return.

AUXS

Levine Music requires everyone entering any Levine campus to submit a clear health screening form before arrival through a mobile application called AUXS S2. A link to create an AUXS account will be e-mailed to you before camp begins.

Health & Wellness

Allergies

All of Levine Music’s campuses are open campuses, where a variety of lessons and group classes are offered. For that reason, Camp Levine is unable to provide a nut, milk, or allergen-free environment because the risk of accidental exposure is always present. However, we do all we can to maintain the safety of those with allergies.

Bathroom

All campers attending Camp Levine are required to be fully potty-trained and completely independent in the restroom. If a camper needs support in the restroom, or is having repeated accidents, the camper will be dismissed from Camp Levine.

EpiPens & Inhalers

EpiPens and inhalers are stored in the camp offices at each site. All EpiPens and inhalers are stored with their designated action plans. An action plan must be provided by the camper’s doctor. EpiPens, inhalers, and action plans should be dropped off at the camp site prior to the first day of camp. The EpiPen and inhaler must remain on site for the duration of the camp session. Any child dropped off at Camp Levine without their prescribed EpiPen or inhaler will not be permitted to remain at camp.

First Aid & Medical Emergencies

All campuses are equipped with first aid kits to handle minor injuries. If an injury is serious, camp staff will contact the parent or emergency contact listed on the Health & Safety Form. If the emergency is severe, emergency personnel will be contacted immediately.

Illness

Children exhibiting symptoms of illness must remain home for at least 24 hours or until the symptoms subside. If a camper becomes ill while at camp, camp staff will contact the parent(s). In the event of illness, parent(s) are responsible for promptly picking up their children. Any contagious conditions must be reported to the Site Director immediately. Children may not attend Camp Levine until they are no longer contagious.

Medication

Camp Levine staff DOES NOT administer medication at Camp Levine. If your child requires medication administered during the camp day, you will need to go to the campus and administer the medication. Please note that in an anaphylactic emergency, an Epi-pen will be administered.

Instrument Loans

Camp – Instrument Loan Policy

Campers in 3rd grade and up, who are not focusing on the piano or harp, will be provided an instrument they can bring to/from camp.

The instrument loaned to your child must be properly cared for and returned on the last day of the camp session in the same condition that it was received. In case of loss or damage to the instrument and/or all of its parts and accessories while in the possession of your child, the enrolling adult is responsible for the cost of repair and/or replacement of the instrument.

Insufficient Class Enrollment & Cancellation

Levine Music and Camp Levine reserves the right to close registration for classes that are filled and to cancel or alter classes that are undersubscribed.

Photography & Videography

Levine Music reserves the right and may give permission to appropriate staff or outside personnel and representatives of the media, to photograph and record (video or audio) classes, programs, performances, and participants at all our facilities and properties. Please be aware that these photos or recordings are for promotional purposes and may be used in future Levine Music, Camp Levine, and/or other print or electronic publications and media communications. By enrolling in Camp Levine, families consent to video/audio recording or taking photographs of you and/or your child for these promotional purposes.

Weather & Closures

Campers do go outside daily, weather permitting. In cases of inclement weather and extreme heat, campers will remain indoors.

In the event it becomes necessary to close the camp due to inclement weather or other circumstances, we cannot guarantee the makeup of lost camp time. No refunds or credits will be issued in the event of a weather or other uncontrollable event or closure. Schedule changes due to inclement weather will be posted on www.levinemusic.org. We will also attempt to contact parents via e-mail or phone.
