Camp COVID-19 Guidelines
Are You Ready to Open Camp?
Heading into camp season, we are optimistic the pandemic outlook is shifting for the better. If you’re proceeding with in-person camp in 2021, preparation is key to opening safely.
Here are a few COVID-19 precautions camp administrators can take to protect campers, staff and communities:
Establish quarantining plans—ideally off-site—for anyone exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms or known to have had direct exposure with someone exhibiting symptoms.
Adapt group activities to allow for social distancing; eliminate activities that cannot be adapted.
Require all staff to get tested before each camp session, and plan to screen everyone at camp on an ongoing basis.
Understand all state and local COVID-related mandates, including mask wearing and group sizes.
Prepare plenty of sanitizing stations.
For additional COVID-19 safety questions, follow CDC guidelines or contact your county public health officials.
