COVID - 19
On this page is where you will find all of our COVID-19 Policies and Procedures. At this time, we are currently still developing these while we work with our partners, local county health departments, Nebraska Medicine, the VNA and our medical team. In addition, we will be following guidance from both the American Camp Association and the CDC.
Will masks be required?
Mask policies are not finalized yet. However, please be prepared that they will likely be required at some point during your camper's session. We will update this answer when we have a more definitive plan of scenarios that would require them or not.
Are vaccines for campers required?
No. For 2021, we will not be requiring vaccines for campers.
Are vaccines for staff required?
No, for 2021, we will not be requiring vaccinations for staff. However, all site directors, the camp nurse, and camp director are all currently vaccinated as of February 2021. As we hire camp counselors, we will be highly encouraging each hire to get their vaccine. Because camp staff is Priority 1B, we will be assisting each member of staff to find a vaccination clinic if they choose.
What will pre-screening processes be?
At this time, we are still developing this plan. However, please be prepared that we could potentially require pre-screening as far ahead of two weeks prior to your camper's session. We will update this answer when we have a finalized plan.
What will you be doing to prevent the spread of COVID-19 at Camp?
Because we are working with multiple partners and site facilities this year, we are still developing these procedures. However, please expect that we will have rules regarding pre-screening, screening while in session, mask requirements, hand washing multiple times a day, sanitizing surfaces, grouping campers into cohorts or pods of 10-15 with no cross socializing, staff wearing multiple items of PPE when serving campers in close proximity or performing personal cares, remaining 6' or more away from one another, etc. When we have a more definitive plan we will share it here.
