Before arriving at Camp
Campers will be asked to provide a printed copy of negative COVID (molecular) PCR test conducted 1 -5 days prior to arrival. Testing 1-3 days prior to your son’s session is preferred. Without proof of an negative molecular test, your camper will not be admitted into camp. The only exceptions are if your son has tested positive for COVID in the past 90 days or is fully vaccinated.
COVID-19 tests can be done in your hometown or you can choose a mail in option. Please choose a location that will get your results back in time for camp. We ask that you test as close as you can to your son’s opening day. We have partnered with Vault Health to provide a testing option for our camp families. You may obtain a test from anyone you choose, the Vault Health option is purely for your convenience. Please follow this link to learn more: Summer Camp Testing Vault Health
If your son has already had COVID within 90 days of the start of your session, per CDC guidelines, they do not need to be tested before arriving to camp. You must bring a copy of their positive COVID test results with you on Opening Day. Without the positive test results, he will not be admitted into camp. Please let us know prior to camp if your son has tested positive in the past 90 days. Your son will still need to fill out the 10 day Health Monitoring Form. If the positive test result happens within 14 days of the start of their session, please contact us.
If your son is fully vaccinated, he does not need to be tested before arriving to camp. To be fully vaccinated, your son must have his second dose 14 days prior to arriving to camp. You must bring a copy of his vaccination card with you on Opening Day. Please let us know prior to camp if your son will be fully vaccinated. If your son becomes ill or starts showing symptoms, he will need to take a test. Your son will still need to fill out the 10 day Health Monitoring Form.
While at camp
Campers will receive another COVID-19 PCR test while at camp 4-5 days after their arrival. We will not be testing in our One Week, Junior Camp. Junior Camp families do not need to fill out this form. We are parenting with Keystone Labs for onsite administration of the PCR test. Parents will need to register each camper with Keystone Labs. Results will be available in 24-48 hours. The cost of the test will be covered by health insurance or the CARES Act. Campers that are fully vaccinated will still need to register with Keystone Labs and will only be tested if symptoms are present. Please REGISTER by clicking Keystone Labs Form.
If campers at anytime during the session have COVID-19 indicating symptoms they will be tested using a rapid test and/or a PCR test. Please see our “Response Management of a Case or Probable Case” FAQ for more information.
