These policies could change in reaction to government regulations.

Check-in Procedures

  1. The week (the 7 consecutive days) before the camp session begins, parents or guardians will record their camper’s temperature. Any pre-existing conditions such as coughs related to allergies should be recorded on the form. Any camper that exhibits any new symptoms related to Covid-19 could be denied access to camp. Do not bring any camper or adult who could infect others.

    Generic Pre-Health Screening Form

    —Fill out at least the 7 consecutive days before the start of the camp session.—

  2. Maintain at least 6 feet of distance between groups of arriving campers and families and wear face coverings.
  3. Check in canopies (one for each team) will be set near their respective dorms.
  4. Campers who have not requested a roommate will go to the designated canopy and select a bunk. From there, they will proceed to their team’s canopy to check in.
  5. Campers that have requested a roommate will be directed, through email or phone call, to go directly to their team’s canopy.
  6. At the team’s canopy, campers will sign in, present the required forms, and receive 2 neck gaiters and a water bottle.
