What will Summer 2022 look like at Whippoorwill?
- We will continue to monitor the threat of COVID-19 during our off-season. It is our goal to return to full capacity and host a summer with free choice activities. We will consult with our medical staff, the CDC, and American Camp Association as summer 2022 approaches to make the best decisions for our staff and camp families.
- Thank you to our amazing families for their flexibility and understanding during summer 2021! Because of your cooperation, we were able to keep our staff and campers safe and healthy for a second summer.
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.
