If eligible, staff, volunteers, campers, and family members should get fully vaccinated for COVID-19. Ideally, wait 2 weeks after completing vaccination for COVID-19 before traveling to camp.
Campers and staff not vaccinated will submit proof of a negative COVID-19 test to their unit leader taken within 1-3 days before leaving for camp. Campers and staff should isolate between taking the test and departing for camp.
Campers, their families, and camp staff will be required to follow guidance for travelers prior to coming to camp.
Units will conduct daily symptom checking to monitor the health and well-being of campers during the camp session. This will be done within the unit campsite prior to breakfast and dinner on a daily basis. Each unit is asked to bring their own forehead thermometer.
All people in camp facilities will be required to wear masks at all times with exceptions for certain people, or for certain settings or activities, such as while eating and drinking or swimming. Campers and staff can use well-fitting cloth masks with two or more layers of tightly woven, breathable fabric or disposable masks. N95 respirators or other personal protective equipment intended for healthcare workers should be worn only by camp medical staff when appropriate.
Campers will be required to have more than one mask on hand so that they can easily replace a dirty mask with a clean one. All Campers will be required to bring a minimum of 6 masks each to Camp. Masks should be at least 2 layers. Gators, neckerchiefs, bandanas, etc. are NOT acceptable masks.
Masking requirements may be modified to ensure compliance with all applicable CDC, State, County, and BSA guidelines.
Cohorting: Cohorts (or “pods”) are groups of campers and staff that stay together throughout the day to minimize exposure to other people while at camp.
Troops will be functioning as cohorts.
Different Troops will NOT be mixed into the same cohort.
Colored wristbands will be issued to differentiate members of cohorts.
There will be very limited mixing between cohorts.
Cohorting will not replace other prevention measures, including wearing masks.
Campers and staff in the same cohort should continue to wear masks at all times, except when eating and drinking or swimming.
Maintaining Physical Distance: Physical distancing provides protection by reducing risk of exposure and limiting the number of close contacts when someone is infected with COVID-19.
At least 3 feet between all campers within a cohort
At least 6 feet between all campers outside of their cohort
At least 6 feet while eating and drinking without a mask indoors, including among people within the same cohort.
At least 6 feet between campers and staff
At least 6 feet between staff
The Camps will use physical or visual guides to reinforce physical distancing of at least 6 feet.
Food Service has been modified in accordance with CDC, State, and County guidelines
There will be no self service.
Pedal activated water bottle refill station is located at the Dining Hall.
All dining will be located outdoors.
Food will be served by properly trained and PPE protected staff.
Unexpected or unscheduled visitors can potentially increase the risk of infection and break our “camp bubble.” Only visitors or authorized staff required for necessary safe and healthy camp operations will be permitted on camp properties for authorized business.
