- Summer 2021 Reminders:
- If your camper requires a Covid test, for any reason, it needs to be a PCR test and not a rapid test.
- As a reminder, masks are required for all campers and staff on the buses. Upon arrival at camp, masks will be required in the following situations: Monday morning council ring, every afternoon council ring prior to boarding buses, at select activities such as kitchen and crafts, and in rainy-day shelters. Please note that the majority of their day is spent in their dens which do not require masking.
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, 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 . Our staff will be screening campers 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.
2021 Travel Policy
- If traveling by air domestically, campers will be required to quarantine for 5 days prior to attending camp.
- If traveling by air internationally, campers will be required to quarantine for 14 days prior to attending camp.
- If traveling out of state by car, campers will be required to quarantine for 3 days prior to attending camp.
*Restrictions are subject to change at the direction of our camp doctor, nurses, Williamson Co. Health Dept., and TN State Gov.
