Preventative Measures


We are in a unique position to provide risk mitigated programming.  Outdoor programming provides:

  • Unlimited space to maintain physical distance

  • Unlimited fresh air


We will be following recommendations set forth by the state for safety/prevention in addition to any that your local City requires.  We anticipate and are committed to the following as a minimum:

  • Regular handwashing with soap (every 30 min.)

  • 6’ separation

  • Individualized materials and activity (no sharing of materials unless/until cleaned/sanitized)

  • Group size max 10 in applicable areas

  • Groups will remain static/stable

  • Masks will be recommended (Masks will be required for staff)

  • Daily communication/documentation regarding signs/symptoms and potential exposure events that any participants or staff have experienced

  • In the event of a participant or staff demonstrating symptoms or exposure to a known person infected we will communicate immediately to all participant families and relevant city staff


In the case of limited space priority enrollment will be provided to:

  1. Hospital and clinical staff

  2. Dentists

  3. Pharmacy staff

  4. Home health, Elder and Nursing home staff

  5. Psychologists

  6. Psychiatrists

  7. Mental Health counselors

  8. Developmental disability aides

  9. First Responders (police, fire, EMT)

  10. Direct Social Services workers (child care, children's services, public assistance and adult protective services.



Updates on City and States

For any camp that you register for this Summer please be in touch with Parks and Rec about precautionary measures.  You can expect, until further notice, that camp procedures will include hand washing, physical distancing, recommendations for mask wearing and non sharing of camp materials.  Coyle Outside will be cooperating with your local parks and rec and following state and local guidelines as they evolve.  We will continue to update on our approach.  Please be patient with our management of these recommendations come Summer.
