COVID-19 and changes to RA Programs
Renaissance Adventures abides by all County, State, and National COVID Safety Protocols and Regulations.
- Come Join our In-Person Camps! We are following all guidelines and recommendations of the CDC, Colorado Department of Health, and Boulder County Public Health. We plan on being outside as much as the weather allows, in small groups of children, socially distant, wearing masks, and utilizing sanitized bathrooms in private schools (no public bathrooms). The private schools provide facilities for handwashing, bathroom use, and rainy day questing.
- In-Person Camps in Boulder and Denver: We are offering in-person camps at September School in West Boulder, Temple Grandin School in East Boulder, and Mackintosh Academy in East Boulder, as well as at the Denver Waldorf School.
- Online Camps: We are also offering Adventure Quest and Dungeon Delver (D&D) programs online via Zoom. Our online programs have received positive feedback from the participants and their parents!
- It’s OK to Cancel! We offer generous credits and refunds for missed days and sessions due to COVID. Click here to read about our session change/cancelation policy.

- Health screening questions and reminders of safety protocols will be emailed to you within 24 hours of the start of your program.

- Please supervise your child in washing their hands before they come to camp.
- Keep your child out of camp if they have any symptoms of sickness, or if anyone in your household has had close contact with someone who has symptoms that could be COVID.
Daily at the Start of Camp:
- A confirmation letter will be sent the week before your program begins. Please check this letter for details on drop-off procedure at your location. Most locations will require campers to stay in their car for a temperature check and health questions. Please wear a mask and guide your child to wear a mask during sign-in.
- Your child will be led to their small questing group and will wash their hands.

- All programs will occur outdoors unless it is raining. There are outdoor rain shelters at some sites, and there are clean indoor private school facilities at all sites.
- The small questing group of six children will stay separate from all other campers or will be assigned one other group of six children as a cohort. That cohort of 12 youth may play and duel with each other but no other children at the camp.

- Your child will be assigned one or more Swasher swords for their personal use, not to be shared with others. Campers are also encouraged to bring their person Swasher Sword or to purchase one of their own. Our online store can be found here: online store.

Testimonial from an Infectious Disease Physician
As an infectious disease physician, I have been impressed to no end with Renaissance Adventures this summer. They have been extremely rigorous in devising and enforcing COVID-19 safety protocols across the board, every day.
Because of this, I feel confident sending my children to camp, and they have attended multiple weeks this summer! Thank you, RA!
