COVID-19 and Camp
We’re so excited to be with your campers for summer 2021. For those who have enjoyed summers with us in the past, things will still be a little different this year. Based on resources from the CDC, Tennessee Health Department, American Camp Association, and recommendations from our camp doctor, we will continue updating and improving our policies and procedures to ensure another safe and fun summer for all of our staff and campers.
Our 2021 Covid Handbook explains these new policies and procedures . You can find our staff screening camper guardians each morning at drop off, asking these questions:
- Have you had a fever in the last 14 days?
- Have you, or anyone in your household, had any symptoms (fever of 100.4°F or greater, cough, shortness of breath, diarrhea, fatigue, headache, muscle aches, nausea, loss of taste or smell, sore throat, vomiting, etc.) in the last 14 days?
- Have you been in contact with someone who is positive for Covid-19 in the last 7 days?
- Have you taken any fever reducing medication today?
If the parent or guardian answers yes to any of the above questions, the camper will need to stay home that day.
- Prescreening Form. We encourage all camp families to monitor their camper’s symptoms or temperature changes for 14 days prior to their camper’s session. This form is not required to attend camp.
