COVID Guidelines for 2021

We recognize that the current pandemic will inevitably have an effect on camp in the summer of 2021. We are researching and keeping current on prevention requirements and best practices.  We anticipate modifications being made to many camp activities such as drop-off, pick-up, bunk assignments, meals, singing, physical contact or proximity, health checks and more.  We will be using a multi layered plan including (but not limited to): testing, masks, social distancing; more frequent and thorough cleaning; cohort groups; and staying outdoors as much as possible. As the science and understanding of how to minimize the spread and treat COVID19 continues to improve, we will adjust our plan accordingly. As much as we all want to get back up to camp, we will only have campers in person if we truly believe we can keep everyone safe and healthy.

We will go to extraordinary measures at to keep our campers, volunteers, staff and families safe.

This will be a certainly be a different year at camp, however I am sure we will still have amazing, fun, faith-based community in spite of all we will do to keep everyone safe and healthy.  The inconveniences will be totally worth it to get to have Camp!
