Before camp

The measures listed below are general guidelines that will help keep everyone at camp safe and healthy.  

Pre-Camp Health Monitoring

  • Monitor your temperature for 14 days prior to their camp session starting. 
  • Guests with a higher risk of complications due to COVID-19 (asthma, immune compromised, serious heart or lung disease) are encouraged to consult with a healthcare provider before deciding on whether to attend camp.
  • Watch for any symptoms of COVID-19 prior to coming to camp: 
    • Fever or chills
    • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
    • Cough
    • Fatigue
    • Muscle or body aches
    • Headache
    • New loss of taste or smell
    • Sore throat
    • Congestion or runny nose
    • Nausea or vomiting
    • Diarrhea

Be prepared

Although we are doing our utmost to ensure as safe an environment as possible , we can not 100% guarantee that COVID-19 will not affect a staff member, guest or someone else associated with Camp.  Please read over this page about our response if that happens.

Talk to your group / camper

This is a strange time for all of us, children especially. Depending on your group / camper, it may be useful to discuss what camp will look like so they are prepared. Specifically, consider covering:

  • Cabin groups and program changes
  • Good hygiene and hand washing practices
  • Social distancing
