Listed below are our current 2023 Covid Guidelines. Please realize that these guidelines are subject to change if the situation with Covid changes. Updated 3/30/23.
We will not require Covid vaccinations for our staff or campers.
Pre-Camp Testing & Protocols
Campers will NOT be required to take a Covid Test before they arrive at camp this summer.
If a camper does test positive within 24 hours prior to arrival (or anytime in the 5 days leading up to arrival), they must wait five days, have improving symptoms and no fever, before they can come to camp.
We encourage families to limit their children’s exposure to large groups, especially indoors, for the week leading up to their arrival at camp.
Camper temperatures will be checked upon arrival. Campers with a temperature of 100.4 or higher (consistently) will be turned away. Campers may return to camp when their temperature returns to normal for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medications.
Campers with a temperature in the range of 99.5 – 100.3 (consistently) will be kept at camp under staff supervision until it goes down. If not down in 12 hours, the camper will be sent home.
Response Management of a Covid or Flu Case at Camp
A camper or staff member identified as having a likely case of Covid or Flu will remain in an isolation room as part of Camp’s communicable disease plan.
If a camper has convincing Covid or Flu symptoms:
We will do a rapid test and if positive, we will contact the parents of the child.
If the test returns positive, we will ask the parents to come and get their child within 24 hours. We will offer a refund for the unused portion of their tuition.
We will notify families if there is a positive Covid case in their child’s cabin.
We will give members of that cabin the option to wear a mask when in an activity inside with other cabins for the remainder of their stay, or 10 days, whichever comes first.
If a staff member has convincing Covid or Flu symptoms:
We will do a rapid test.
If the test returns positive, the staff member will isolate at camp or leave the property.
If both staff members in a cabin test positive, then the campers in that cabin may have to go home. In this case, a prorated refund would be available.
Face Covering Protocols
We will not be requiring campers to wear masks while at camp, but your child is welcome to wear a mask when they feel they need to.
If someone in your child's cabin tests positive for Covid 19 while at camp, other cabinmates will be given the option to wear a mask. (Typically this would only be recommended while inside, except for in the cabin and while eating a meal, for 10 days.) Masks will be provided by Camp upon request. If a parent wishes for their child to wear a mask, then we can communicate your request to your child, but we will not be able to adequately police these requests throughout our property. Please have these discussions with your child before he/she gets to camp.
Pre-Camp: Our most up-to-date policies will be posted online. These policies may change as updated information becomes available.
During Camp: We plan to communicate confirmed COVID cases to parents of campers within each affected cabin.
We can’t wait for summer 2023. We are thrilled at the possibilities this summer offers. We know that your children need camp and all that it offers. As always please feel free to email, call or chat with us online if you have any questions.
