Health and Wellness

The Health and Wellness of our camper is the biggest priority. See below to read more about what LIU is doing to keep our camps safe!

Face Coverings: All campers will be required to follow NYS and campus guidelines to wear a mask at all times when indoors.

Air Filtration: We ensure that all classroom, activity spaces and dorms will have the proper air filtrations systems in place.

Protective Space Barriers: All reception areas, classrooms, and dining hall areas will have the proper space barriers to ensure the safety of our students, staff, and faculty.

Room Cleaning: All rooms will be cleaned daily and high-touch areas will be cleaned throughout the day by our staff.

Safety and Security

On Campus Security: Public safety has reviewed all procedures to ensure that effective measures of control are in place and will respond to COVID-19 issues as necessary.

LIU Brooklyn is gated and identification is required for entry. In March 2020, LIU Post set-up an entrance gate where public safety verifies identification. Visitors must be on an approved visitors’ list before they are permitted to enter the grounds. Employees are permitted on campus only if they have successfully completed the LIU COVID-19 Self-Check and their IDs have been cleared. Access to residence halls is monitored by Public Safety officers from midnight to 6 a.m. A No Guest Policy has been put in place by Student Affairs to mitigate exposure to infection.150 indoor and outdoor cameras monitor gatherings and movements that may risk student exposure to infection. All public areas are patrolled routinely. Ambulances will be called for students who are ill and in need of transportation to a medical facility.

Classroom Spaces: A new maximum occupancy capacity has been given to each room to adhere to New York State guidelines. Some classrooms have been reconfigured by removing seats; others will have seating marked to indicate how students should arrange themselves when they arrive. All in-person course participants will wear face coverings. Every classroom participant, including the instructor, is asked to practice proper respiratory etiquette and hand hygiene.

What to Bring:

Food: All campers can either purchase our lunch program (information available) or bring their own lunch. Each camp will have a designated time for lunch in their program.

Drink: All campers are encouraged to bring any water/beverages that they would like to have. During the summer months, staying hydrated is crucial to the health and safety of all participants.

Clothing: Athletic gear is required for all campers. Type of shoe will depend on the type of sports, however t-shirt/shorts is recommended.

Misc: Sunscreen, proper eye protection if needed, any protective gear as recommended by the councilors.

Where to Go:
