LEARN IT COVID-19 Summer camp guidelines and protocols 2021

All camps will follow the advice of NPHET and government published by the Health Protection Surveillance Centre (HPSC) and the HSE that are in place at the time of each camp.



COVID 19 Officer

Each camp will have a COVID officer to ensure all hygiene and other guideline requirements in relation to COVID -19 are adhered to.  Any staff or children at camp displaying symptoms will be provided with a mask and the COVID officer will ensure the safe isolation of the individual until it is possible for them to go home. Any persons potentially affected will be advised to contact their GP for medical advice. Learnit will comply with the HSE contact tracing requests if necessary. 

Modified Curriculum

Where required, the curriculum for our summer camps has been adjusted to enable young people the best possible learning experience during Covid-19.  This includes (but not limited to) smaller group based work, restricted access to shared materials, restrictions on showcase events.

Contactless Drop Off/ Collections

To comply with the health and safety guidelines parents will drop their child  at the door and collect them from the door each day. The children will be greeted by a member of staff at the door who will sign them in and out each day. We will also stagger drop off times and children can be dropped off between 9.45am to 10.00am and collection will be from 1.45pm to 2.00pm.

Parental access Parents/ Guardians will not be allowed to enter the building. If a child needs to leave early the parents must ring ahead to inform staff and a staff member will bring the child to the door.

Hand hygiene and sanitization

We will provide hand sanitization for staff and children with easy access. Each child will also be encouraged to bring their own sanitizer. Children will sanitize their hand upon entering the building and regularly throughout the day. Children will be supervised during toilet breaks to ensure correct hand washing and hygiene. At the end of each day work areas will be disinfected as well as other hot spots, such as screens, door handles and other equipment.

Personal Belongings

We will require all personal belongings to be labelled, including (but not excluded to) water bottles, lunch boxes and bags.  Children will be unable to bring in any of their own LEGO to camps.

Outdoors / Ventilation

We will give the children regular breaks outside and all rooms will be ventilated with windows and doors open where possible.

Reduced Camps & Capacity

Camps sizes will be reduced based on venue capacity to enable the best possible social distancing room setup.  Camp hours will be adjusted to limit the time children are indoors.  Where possible and weather permitting camps will take place outdoors as much as possible.  We are running ¼ of our normal amount of summer camps to enable the rotation and cleaning of resources between camps and dedicated management for each individual camp.

Small groups

Children will be put into small groups on the first morning of camp.  These groups will be self contained and any resources, equipment etc. assigned to each group will only be used by that group for the duration of the week.  There will be no cross contamination of resources between groups.  Groups will not inter-mix with each other for the duration of the week.

Visible signage

Signage and posters, as recommended by the HSE, will be displayed in all the necessary locations at each camp venue. This will provide guidelines and reminders on social distancing, hand hygiene and respiratory etiquette for parents and children alike.

The team at Learn it have made every effort to reduce the risk of the possible spread of COVID-19 throughout our camps, however, the virus is still in Ireland, and by attending our camp you accept that Learn it cannot guarantee that your child will not contract the virus. (See the symptoms of Covid -19 below - Do not send your child to a Learnit, or any Camp, if they are displaying any of these symptoms. Do not send your child to a Learnit Camp if they are considered in the 'at higher risk' category)

- High Temperature

- Shortness of Breath

- A cough

- Loss or change to your sense of smell or taste

- Recent close contact of another person/child with Covid-19

Here at Learnit we are fully committed to the provision of a safe, fun and enjoyable experience for your children.  The past year has been a time like no other.  Getting back to some form of normality will be of huge benefit to us all, young and old alike.  

With young children of our own we, like you, have seen the impact of interaction with other children on their mental wellbeing.  We believe that Learnit (and other summer activities) can play a strong role in enabling children to continue on this return to normality.  

To enable this, extra practices for health and safety are now necessary to keep us all safe and well.  Our goal is to imbed these practices in a fun, engaging and exciting way to enable us to deliver the best camps we can for your children.

Thank you in advance for your support, custom, cooperation and understanding.
