  • Notify us with any symptoms your child might be experiencing at least 24 hours before camp.

Family Commitments to Follow Safety Guidelines

This includes but is not limited to mask wearing, limiting social gatherings as required by current county guidelines, not sending their child to attend camp if they are lsymptomatic, getting doctor's clearance or a negative Covid test to attend after illness, and quarantining if exposed to someone with Covid.
