What Do We Do

On camp, the helfer (the fully trained leaders) will be running activities for the SKIFistn where we aim to help open the eyes of our SKIFistn to the wide world that we live in. We encourage them to be actively involved in making it the kind of place in which they would like to live.  

SKIFistn have jam packed days where they partake in activities based on SKIF’s ideologies, arts and crafts, sing, do some exercise, hang out with their friends and the helfer. The helfer work hard to make sure that every child has an enjoyable time on camp with exciting stories to tell.

COVID FAQ's

Outlined below are the answers to some frequently asked questions  in regards to Summer Camp COVID-19 Safety procedures (based on our Summer Camp Covid-safe plan). This is the FAQ as of 27/11/20 and will be updated as restrictions change in Victoria.

What will happen when I drop off my child at the bus to depart for camp? 

To minimize risk, parents/guardians will drive their cars into the Glen Eira Town Hall carpark from the Hawthorn Rd end and proceed to the main carpark near Glen Eira Rd.

There will be a check in point where Parents/guardians will remain in the car while a helfer asks a series of questions, including: 

  • Does your child have a fever, sore throat, cough, cold, runny nose or fever? 

  • Has your child been in contact with anyone with COVID

  • Has your child had a COVID test in the past few days and not yet received a negative result?   

    • It is not essential for all children to be tested before camp, but if they have had symptoms and been tested, a negative result must be received before they can attend

If the answer is ‘NO’ to all these questions, the SKIFistn will be able to come out of the car with their luggage and walk with their helfer to the bus departure zone. Parents/guardians should say their farewells at their car and will not be able to congregate in the departure zone. 

 

Does my child need to bring a mask on camp? 

At this stage, we require SKIFistn to bring a mask on camp. They will be worn on the bus ride to and from the campsite and under any other conditions outlined by the state government. As masks should be washed/changed after each use, it is preferred for each SKIFist to bring several masks to camp. 

 

How will camp minimise the sharing of cups for hydration throughout camp? 

We ask that all SKIFistn bring a labelled drink bottle to camp to use throughout the day. Cups used at meals will be cleaned thoroughly by the dizur team at each meal. 

 

Will hand sanitiser be available on camp? 

Hand sanitiser will be available at all central meeting points for use throughout camp and use will be encouraged. As a preferred alternative, helfer will encourage regular hand-washing. 

 

What is the ‘camp bubble’? 

In order to minimise risk to our SKIFistn and helfer, we will be creating a camp bubble. This means that we will be minimising the number of people coming up to camp after the initial arrival date. This means there will be no visitors day this year.  

 

What happens if there is a suspected COVID case on camp? 

Any child who develops any symptoms needs to be isolated from rest of camp immediately. They well be observed from a distance to ensure no deterioration in condition. They will not be made to feel criticised or demeaned. The helfer will seek immediate advice from our camp doctor regarding procedure for testing. 

 

What if someone on camp turns out to be a ‘close contact’? 

If someone on camp turns out to be a close contact of a positive case in Melbourne they will need to be isolated. The helfer will act on the advice from our camp doctor and DHHS. 

 

What happens if there is a case of COVID on camp? 

The helfer will notify the camp doctor and DHHS for advice on how to isolate the individual and a return of camp. 

The individual will need to be collected from camp immediately and safely by a parent or guardian. 

In the event of a confirmed case of COVID on camp, it is likely that all SKIFistn and helfer will need to return to Melbourne. In this case, the helfer will seek advice from the camp doctor and DHHS regarding travel arrangements. Any early return from camp will be communicated to parents by the camp contact via the parent Whatsapp group. All parents, guardians and emergency contacts are required to be members of this Whatsapp group for the duration of camp. 

 

How do I collect my child when the bus returns from camp? 

All parents/guardians should park their cars in the Glen Eira Town Hall carpark. We ask that all parents remain in their cars. When the bus has safely stopped, the helfer will help the SKIFistn to locate their luggage and will assist them in finding their parent/guardian.
