We are thrilled to say that Camp Champions had a successful Summer 2020, operating for 9 weeks with zero cases of COVID.
We learned a lot in 2020, and with better testing options and expanded availability of vaccines, we feel even more prepared for summer 2021.
Please find our step-by-step plan below.
All of our counselors and leadership team for 2021 are fully vaccinated against COVID. This will give us a head start in running a healthy camp program this year.
We are asking each family to do their part to prevent COVID from being brought to camp. This includes a testing element and a quarantine element:
The pre-camp preparation plan above will allow us to have a very limited masking plan for camp this summer. The only times that we will require masks to be worn at camp are in the nurse’s station and when we gather as entire camp each night for Torchlight (about 20 minutes).
We now know that COVID is much less likely to spread outdoors, and fortunately almost all of camp happens outside! In addition to our pre-camp preparation plan, we expect that this will be a big part of why we are able to have a healthy summer this year.
As always, we will continue to listen to medical experts and make adjustments as needed.
