Summer 2021 Preparation
We have begun planning for our 2021 summer season. As we look ahead, we understand that it is impossible to know exactly what next summer will look like at this point. We do know Summer 2021 will likely look different than previous summers. COVID-19 is likely to still be with us in some form.
Our community’s health and safety is of the utmost importance to us. In order to develop plans and protocols so that we can operate safely in-person next summer, we are working with our state and local health officials along with the CDC and American Camping Association. As we move forward, we are also meeting with camps that operated and did so safely this summer to learn from them about what worked in preventing the spread of COVID in their camps. We will continue to learn and monitor best practices as we make plans for next summer!
Protecting our community will require some adjustments. Construction is already underway to increase the handwashing stations, hand sanitization areas, and cleaning stations around camp. A review of our health center and dining hall procedures is underway. We are diligently planning for different scenarios that next summer might bring, and will adjust accordingly as experts provide guidelines to operate camp in a healthy manner. With many months to prepare, we will keep you informed about any updated policies and plans for 2021. As the information on the virus, guidelines, and expert recommendations is constantly growing and changing, we expect to have more detailed plans and procedures in the spring. We are working hard to make summer 2021 the best one yet!
