COVID-19 Policy 


GRIT programming has been designed to follow the CDC Guidelines and the proposed reopening plan set forth by the State of New Jersey. 


Our Pledge

As parents of five boys, we pledge to make COVID-19 safety our top priority. We recognize that we are all in this together fighting this pandemic and will do our part as part of the community.   We take this very seriously and will communicate, educate, implement and enforce safety standards that meet and exceed what is recommended to ensure our students, staff and the community are safe and healthy. 

GRIT COVID- 19 Health Safety Policy (as of June 10th)

  • Each child will be temp checked each morning upon arriving at GRIT Summer Camp, at lunch and again in the afternoon.

  • Extra staff have been hired specifically to clean and disinfect surfaces during camp. 

Facility/ Program: 

  • GRIT will be deep cleaned each evening and common surfaces will be cleaned and disinfected regularly during the day. 

  • Hand washing/ Sanitizer stations will be set up around the facility with regularly programmed times throughout the day to remind staffers and campers to wash before the next activity. 

  • GRIT is a large, well ventilated facility with 5 double doors and brand new air systems to bring fresh air rapidly into the space.   For Summer Camp we are adding large fans to further improve air circulation. 

  • Activities on common surfaces ( e.g. tables etc) will be disinfected between use. 

  • All programs will be done outside whenever possible using local parks and fields for both sports and enrichment activities.
