COVID-19 Mitigation Strategies

Our #1 goal has always been the safety and well-being of our campers and staff, and again this summer, we feel that more strongly than ever.

The risk of viral spread at camp will be significantly reduced by layering the following mitigation strategies on top of each other, at all times throughout the summer:

Screening and Protecting our Most Vulnerable

Cohorts

Social Distancing

Using Masks

Campers and counselors will be required to wear a CDC-approved mask in the following instances:

Campers will be given “mask breaks” whenever needed, and as much as possible.

Masks must be washed/replaced daily. Campers and staff are required to bring a second mask as a backup each day. Extra masks will always be available to campers and staff.

Handwashing and Promoting Good Hygiene

Holding Activities Outdoors

Cleaning and Disinfection of Equipment and Facilities

Cancelling and Modifying Higher-Risk Activities

Remaining Vigilant and Responding Immediately to Threats
