Camps in PA – a link to the FAQ from Harrisburg

Q: Are organized team sports permitted during the Governor’s phased reopening plan? 

Organized sports are only permitted in counties in the green phase of the Governor’s phased reopening plan. Organized team sports and events are defined as physical activity directed by adult or youth leaders that involves rules and formal practice and competition. This includes school and club sports as well as youth and adult formal activities. Physical activity conducted as part of summer programming is allowed. Activities and games with little or no physical contact are recommended.

Great sign for SKWIM in your summer camp in the pools in Pennsylvania.

Looks like SKWIM, if part of a day camp, would be permitted in both the yellow and green phases. SKWIM is no contact. 

Q: Are public bathing places regulated by the Pennsylvania Department of Health and other community pools permitted to operate during the Governor’s phased reopening plan?

Public bathing places and other outdoor community pools are permitted to operate in counties in the yellow and green phases of the Governor’s phased-in reopening plan, provided they follow CDC guidance for aquatic venues and the Governor’s Guidance for Businesses Permitted to Operate During the COVID-19 Disaster Emergency.
