The Granite Falls Learning Lab is a place for virtual students to come and engage in their learning while parents work. In addition to their learning, students will be able socialize with peers and partake in various activities around the club, including but not limited to: swimming, recreational sports, CPR training (a NC graduation requirement), and other camp-like activities organized by Youth Program employees.

With the state of North Caroline in “Phase 2” of slowing easing the COVID-19 restrictions, we must be in accordance with this executive order. Day camps and programs for children may operate only if we are in full compliance with the “Interim Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Guidance for Day Camps or Program Settings Serving Children and Teens.” Which means in order for this camp to be successful we all need to work together to make sure we are all in compliance with this order, before, during and after the camp day.
Anyone showing signs of illness of any kind or who may have been exposed to COVID-19 should not be in the day camp facility.
Symptoms of COVID-19:
Additional symptoms include chills, loss of taste or smell, vomiting/diarrhea (children only). While symptoms in children are similar in adults, children have milder symptoms.
*Fever is determined by a reading 100.4 or higher or by subjective signs such as flushed cheeks, fatigue, extreme fussiness, chills, shivering, sweating, achiness, not eating or drinking.
Preventing the spread of the virus in the camp facility:
Has it been at least 10 days since you first had symptoms?
Have you been without a fever for three days (72 hours) without any medicine for fever?
Has it been three days since you symptoms have improved?
ALWAYS IN SEASON!
