Gan Izzy Day Camp of Bucks County will follow recommendations of Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and state and local health guidelines. We have modified previously scheduled day camp program to ensure safety while providing children with an outstanding camp experience. Adjustments include the addition of many safety protocols for staff and campers.
This page is intended to provide parents and campers with a comprehensive overview of changes in policies and procedures while also providing reassurance that safety, this year more than ever, is our top priority.
As policies are updated or lessened based on CDC Guidelines, this page will be updated.

The following updates will be implemented for the duration of Governor Wolf’s Phase 2 plans:


Hand Washing, Masks & Wellness Checks

  •  All children are required to a daily health check at drop off. This will include a temperature check and brief wellness survey. (Gan Izzy staff reserves the right to decline entry for any child and/or parent/guardian who looks and/or sounds unwell.)
