Evolving COVID-19 Camp Policy Since 2020

 

We opened camp June 1, 2020, with mask and screening policies in place.  With masks, cohorting, and health screening, there were no known cases resulting from camp.

Summer 2021, we continued to wear masks and screen campers.  Vaccines were required of staff, and were not yet available for campers under 12. No staff or campers reported infection from camp. 

Summer 2022 saw a rise in cases of BA-5 in both staff and campers.  Vaccines are required for staff, and campers were vaccinated or provided a negative test to attend.  Masks and screening were required after exposure and during high community spread (July and August). At least one staff and one camper may have contracted COVID-19 at camp.
