COVID-19 Update: Due to the increased need for safety procedures during this pandemic, we must follow these guidelines below if we plan to attend any LARP camps this summer.  These guidelines are based on state and county laws and keep us all safe and able to enjoy this outdoor experience.  If these guidelines are not being followed, it jeopardizes the entire camp, and we may lose our opportunity to attend the camps all together, or worse, may shut down the entire camp, so please take these measures very seriously.

Cost: The week costs $300 per person.

Location: The day camp is being held at Willard Libby Park in Sebastopol CA.  We usually meet in the Gazebo, but may have to relocate depending on safety and changing permits.  If COVID-19 causes this to be impossible, we will first attempt to secure a private facility, and if that too is not allowed, we will do out camp online.

What to bring: Students need to bring a lunch, clothing for variation in the summer weather, as well as adequate sun protection and good athletic shoes.  Costumes and props are also a wonderful addition to our events. 

Food: As mentioned above, lunch is not provided and students must bring their own lunches for this event each day.  If your child wishes to leave the park for lunch, they will need written permission from you to do so.

Schedule: We begin setup around 8:30am, and start game promptly at 9am every day and play until 12pm.  We take an hour lunch break from 12-1pm and a role play only town setting from 1-2pm.  We run a second session from 2pm-4:30pm and wrap up by 5pm.  The morning is mostly active battles, skills building, and adventures.  The afternoon is heavily story based and advances the plot.  We may do crafting sessions if health codes allow and player express interest.  (If you need early drop off or late pickup- contact me).

One form per family – note- if you have already submitted this information for another camp and no contact info has changed, you only need to fill out the child’s name, indicate which camps your child plans to attend, send payment, and sign the back of this form.

FANWAR LARP SUMMER DAY CAMP HEALTH SAFETY PROCEDURES FOR 2022

Note:  We will comply with the County Health Orders for whatever county we are currently operating in.

LARP Camps Procedures

Due to the increased need for safety procedures during this pandemic, we must follow these guidelines below if we plan to attend any LARP camps this summer.  These guidelines are based on state and county laws and keep us all safe and able to enjoy this outdoor experience.  If these guidelines are not being followed, it jeopardizes the entire camp, and we may lose our opportunity to attend the camps all together, or worse, may shut down the entire camp, so please take these measures very seriously.

  1. Parent Responsibilities (these are the pieces that need to be attended to by each family to ensure they are doing their part to protect others at the camp).

Protocols for attending camps during this time of COVID19

Before the camp starts, you need to contact me if any of the following is true.

  • Have you or your child had a fever in the last 24 hours of 100°F or above?
  • Do you or your child now, or have recently had, any respiratory or flu symptoms, sore throat, or shortness of breath?
  • Have you been in contact with anyone in the last 14 days who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 or has coronavirus-type symptoms?

If any of the above applies, we need to reschedule your camp. If you question your health or your child’s health in any way, please do not come in.  Safety is first and foremost..

  • Parents and Students Responsibilities: the following items are needed for each student to have at the camp for their personal use.  It is the responsibility of the parents and students to make sure these items are bought every day.
    • Face Mask or Covering (cloth or other breathable fabric, covers the nose and mouth but allows for safe breathing while active)
    • Bag or Box Lunch (since students cannot leave the campus, they must bring enough food for themselves to be comfortable all day long)
    • Fork Friendly Foods (we want to discourage any students from eating foods with their hands at camp.  If possible, please send food that allows your child to eat with a fork, or is wrapped in such a way as to allow them to not need to touch it to eat it).
    • Drinking Water (students will not have access to drinking fountains or other drinking water on site, so they must bring enough water for them to be comfortable all day long in changeable weather).
    • Soapy Spray Bottle (this bottle should be filled with water and soap that is safe for your child to use on themself.  It can be used to spray on their hands or personal items they wish to clean when the bathroom is not available.  If a spray bottle isn’t available, a labeled water bottle filled with soapy water should work.
    • Small Towel (since students may need to wash dry their hands more often than usual, it will be helpful for them to have a towel that they can dry their hands on should they need extra washing between bathroom visits).
    • Sunscreen or Hats as needed (since it can be quite hot at times, and players will also be wearing masks and gloves, hats that keep off the sun and/or sunscreen that they can use are needed).
    • Emergency First Aid Card:  Each student should bring a card with their emergency contact number, and any prudent health issues, such as allergies, etc. clearly printed on it, to be turned in to Christopher’s Box at the start of the camp, in case of emergencies.
    • Backpack or Bag for all the above items:  Since students need more personal items than usual, providing something with their name on it that can contain all these items is a necessity.
  • Student Responsibilities (there are the pieces that need to be enforced with the students to be sure we are protecting each other and the use of our facilities)
    • Upon Arrival Keep Social Distance:  When students arrive they must remain six feet apart while they wait to do their health screening.
    • Health Screening:  At drop off, you must meet with the check in person at the entrance who will be doing the health screening to check for temperature or any other signs of illness before joining activities.  If you do have any symptoms that could be an issue, you will have to go home, so do not come to camp if you already know you have these symptoms.
    • Face Masks/Covering Required:  All students at the camp must have a face mask on during all larp activities.
    • Stay in your Group:  Students will be broken into two to four groups depending on the current health and safety protocols.  We may be allowed to mix these groups on different days, but assume that your group is static unless told otherwise, and do not interact with other groups unless given permission to do so.
    • Students must only use the bathrooms one at a time:  We have access to a bathroom that is directly off the field, and will not enter the other buildings at any time.  We will only use this bathroom one at a time and must get permission from our group leader before we do.
    • Reduce Germs in the Bathroom:  Students should refrain from touching items in the bathroom with their hands (using a paper towel etc. instead).  If a toilet has a lid, it should be shut before flushing to reduce particles entering the air.  Students must wash their hands for 20 seconds and thoroughly rinse and dry them before returning to larp activities.
    • Wash Hands before eating lunch:  Students need to be sure they wash their hands before starting to eat at lunch to reduce the chances of any germs being transferred to food.
    • During lunch, six feet apart:  Since we will be taking our masks off to eat, students must sit six feet apart during lunch.
    • Stay in the areas designated for larp only:  We have use of the space at our site for larp, but only the outside areas which we must take care of.
    • Wash Hands before Leaving LARP:  Before leaving LARP to go home, each student will be sure to wash their hands, either with their personal supplies for this, or at the bathroom as usual.

If you, or your child cannot or will not comply with these procedures they will be barred from the camp and future camps as well.
