Summer Camp 2020

Visit Austria this summer
In July 2020, St. Gilgen International School is offering an exceptional Summer Camp experience open to children aged between 10 and 15 from around the world. The programmes will combine language instruction, in either English or German, with Austrian culture, and outdoor adventure from 4th July to 18th July and from 19th July to 2nd August. We accept all language abilities, from beginners to advanced, and are pleased to be able to offer this language learning in one of the most beautiful locations in Austria. Each two-week programme provides an exciting combination of academic and extracurricular activities embodying our school values and designed to grow the whole person.

Hygiene Measures

How will we keep your children safe?
In order to ensure everyone’s safety we will be testing all participants and staff, who are closely involved in the camp, for Covid 19. This will take place on the first day of the camp and we will receive the results within 24 hours. Pending the results, and for the safety of all, participants and staff will adhere to social distancing and hand washing hygiene protocols and where possible, will continue to wear face masks. Once we have confirmation of negative results, the Summer Camp will operate as a family unit with no physical or close contact with anyone outside of the camp. We will run all of our activities within the local area and have cancelled all trips, where close contact with others may be hard to avoid. Any staff coming in from outside, will be required to wear a face mask and keep their distance from all participants and staff under government guidelines. The house will be regularly cleaned and sanitized and the shared rooms are large enough to allow for effective social distancing, and will only be shared with a maximum of one other person.

Can I still visit my child during the camp?
We always recommend that parents do not visit their children after dropping them off at the camp, as it sometimes makes it harder for them to settle and can prolong feelings of homesickness. This year, to maintain the highest levels of safety for all, we will not be allowing any non-camp personnel entry to the house, after the first day. We request for the safety of all, that you do not visit your child during their time at the camp. If this is not possible, then we require that you meet them outside of the boarding house and maintain social distancing and sanitizing hygiene protocols.
What happens if a participant or staff members test result is positive?
In the unfortunate case that someone is found to be positive for the Covid -19 virus, they will immediately be put into isolation in their room and parents will be contacted to collect their son/daughter as soon as possible. If it is a staff member, they will be immediately required to leave the house. The rest of the camp would have been maintaining social distancing protocols up to the point of a negative result, so there is a reasonable assumption of safety from infection.

Masks
This year, the face mask protection is mandatory for all staff and participants and for parents, on the first day, when bringing the child to the camp. Please ensure that you arrive at the camp, wearing the face masks.  The camp will then, where possible continue to wear the masks, until confirmation of negative test results is received and we may assume that it is safe to remove them.
