The safety and health of campers and staff is always the highest priority at camp, and camps have a long history of planning for and managing communicable diseases. With the potential spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) within the United States, now is an excellent time for camps to review and update health-related plans and procedures and communicate with your camp families and staff members.
Every camp is different and will ultimately assess their ability to operate camp this summer subject to the CDC’s camp guidance and each state’s/local county’s rules for camp in the COVID-19 environment.
