COVID-19 Safety Updates
As of now, we are planning to offer ALL of our traditional summer camp activities! We have modified programming and added additional safety guidelines and procedures to keep our participants as safe and healthy as possible. Below are some of the updated guidelines that we are working on, but because our world is continuing to change daily, these may continue to adjust slightly. We will keep parents in the know as we continue to evolve leading into the camp season.
- We are working to procure rapid COVID-19 tests to be administered to all campers on Sunday evening during camper drop-off. Staff will have completed tests prior to camper drop-off.
- In an effort to limit exposure to others, each camper will spend most of their time with those from their same cabin, including mealtimes and activities. Each cabin will enjoy mealtimes in separate areas across camp and will be spent outdoors when weather allows.
- During activities where campers will be with others outside of their cabin, all participants will be required to wear masks.
- If a camper becomes sick and needs to be separated from others, we will set them up comfortably in a monitored bedroom in the Camp Welcome Center until a parent or guardian is able to pick them up.
