DYT Guidelines/Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)
For DYT Summer 2020
Introduction: Guidelines are very difficult to write as they may sound daunting, but they are guidelines/FAQ’s for our DYT program that have been developed over 25 years working with deaf and hard of hearing (DHH) children and their families based on the situations that we have encountered throughout those years. In addition, many of our guidelines are consistent with those of various municipal children’s programs in BC, as well as other BC camps that support children with special needs. We have also taken into consideration the guidelines used by the BC Ministry of Education regarding students with special needs (class size/composition in BC classrooms). We recognize that each DHH child and family is unique and DYT uses these guidelines to ensure the safety, wellbeing and inclusion of each DHH child in our program.
NEW FOR SUMMER 2020
YES. DYT looks quite different this year! Due to COVID-19, DYT has created many Virtual (online) camps as well as some “In Person” Outdoor Day Camps (with limited enrollment). This year is very unique, so we will be communicating with you often and updating our website to reflect any program changes. As we will follow the guidelines from the BC Health Officer, we need to be flexible if we need to revise our Summer 2020 programs at any time for safety reasons. Your child is our top priority, and we are passionately committed to serving you and offering a safe environment for your child this summer whether that is our traditional “In Person” Camps or our new Virtual (online) Camps.
Due to COVID-19 and social distancing, we have developed some FAQ’s specifically for DYT’s Virtual (online) Camps.
For Summer 2020: The new Virtual Camp Guidelines/FAQ’s will be towards the bottom of all these FAQ’s. So please scroll down.
