Covid - 19 Updates

We are really excited to return to our summer routines and rhythms after an unpredictable spring and have been working hard to make sure our programs are in compliance with guidelines and regulations while also offering participants a fun, wild and connective experience.

We are closely following updates from the CDC and ACA, as well as local and state government, and although recommendations are continuing to evolve, we have created COVID-19 protocols for summer programs that are outlined below. Any summer program registrations that are cancelled due to COVID-19 will be fully refunded.

Please be in touch if you have any questions!

New protocols for all summer programming:

  • Communicate regularly with parents and participants through on site signage and email about changes, updates, and announcements.

  • Morning health screenings every day including temperature check with a no touch thermometer.

  • Participants with signs of illness will be asked to go home and offered a refund for any days missed.

  • Designing our programming to support, and encouraging social distancing for staff and participants.

  • Staff will wear a face covering when they need to come in contact with participants

  • Hygiene practices including hand washing/sanitizing before and after meals and after using the bathroom, and additional cleaning practices with all shared spaces and equipment.

  • Personal belongings will be contained in separate spaces - no sharing of food or other personal items.

  • Group sizes will be limited to 25 people.

  • All staff will complete VOSHA training and receive written and verbal communication about complying with new COVID protocols.

 

Additional protocols for overnight programming:

  • Food served by select individuals wearing face coverings. Outside in spacious areas whenever possible.

  • All out of state participants require pre-screening and either two weeks of quarantine or one week of quarantine followed by a negative test result.

  • We have adapted programming to take place in outside spaces as much as possible or indoors with good ventilation and open windows.

  • Teens who are interested in camping are encouraged to do so.

  • Participants will sleep head to toe on bunk beds and avoid visiting other’s rooms.

  • Personal belongings in rooms will be kept in separate spaces.

  • Rooms will be kept orderly and have more regular cleaning.

 

Protocol if Someone Gets Sick for all camps:

  • We trust that all families have communicated any health concerns with us and those at high risk should not attend camp.

  • We ask any campers who feel sick or if anyone in their home feels sick to stay home.

  • Anyone with symptoms (fever, cough, or runny nose) during camp will be brought to a separate area from other campers and staff (except for staff caring for them) and may be sent home.

  • Anyone with a temperature greater than 100.4 F must be sent home until they have had no fever for 72 hours without the use of fever-reducing medications (e.g., Advil, Tylenol).

If symptoms of COVID-19 occur at camp:

  • Staff and campers who have had close contact with a person who has symptoms will be separated, and follow CDC guidance for community-related exposure including monitoring symptoms closely.

  • All families of campers will be notified

  • All surfaces and objects that that individual or anyone who came in contact with that individual came in contact with will be disinfected.

  • Campers who experienced COVID-19 symptoms cannot return to camp until they have had a negative test result 

  • If a camper has to leave camp due to COVID-19, we will offer a full refund.
