A note about safety
:

As you know, our priority is always the health and safety of our campers. As we enter the summer camp season, we are planning to use a variety of non-pharmaceutical interventions, as we did in our successful 2021 season – a season in which neither of our operating camps had a positive case of COVID-19. Interventions include wellness screening by families prior to attending camp; frequent handwashing breaks, particularly in activities with shared materials and before and after meal times; having hand sanitizer available throughout camps; utilizing outdoor and/or well ventilated spaces whenever possible; and cleaning high touch surfaces and materials regularly. Additionally, health center staff will monitor symptoms and address them with the help of our supporting medical professionals.

We continue to work in partnership with Girl Scouts USA, the American Camp Association, and The Alliance for Camp Health (formerly the Association of Camp Nursing), and follow the lead of all local, state, and national governing organizations. We will be mindful of changes that may come during the summer and will notify families accordingly.
