      COVID-19 Protocols

      Evergreen will follow the latest guidelines established by the Oregon Health Authority and Yamhill County for summer camp programs.

      Summer health and safety protocols include:

      • Stable groups of campers and staff to limit interaction.
      • Sanitization throughout the day, along with requirements of campers and staff to wash hands multiple times a day.
      • All camps will follow summer protocols from the Oregon Health Authority.

      Campers are recommended, but not required, to wear a face mask.

      Summer camps will be divided into stable groups of 30 campers or less, meaning the same group of campers will be with the same instructor and assistants for the week and will not intermingle with any other group during the day.

      No, but we ask that parents do a daily screening at home prior to sending their camper to the museum. If the camper is feeling unwell, please keep them home until they are ready to return.

      If the camper feels unwell while at camp, they will go to a separate area and be further assessed for symptoms.

      All teaching spaces will be sanitized daily with an approved cleaner that aligns with OHA guidelines. Each space will be sanitized on the weekends prior to new campers utilizing the space. Additional cleaning protocols are in place for the entire Museum.

      Evergreen’s Galaxy Exploration and Aviation camp curriculum has a great mix of classroom lessons, hands-on activities, experiments, and onsite field trips to help students visualize and grasp the concepts being taught.

      Throughout the camps, students commented regularly on how amazing it was to experience and see space and aviation history in person. At the end of each week, students expressed many thanks to the camp’s staff for providing a fun-filled week of exploration and learning. It was also evident through students’ comments that they valued the new friendships made during their week at camp.

      These interactive one-week programs were filled with exciting, educational experiences designed for each specific age group. Below are a few activities that sparked a passion for STEAM in future aviators and space explorers.
