Keeping Camp Safe & Healthy

How we will keep our Camp Community Safe 

Ensuring a safe and health Camp will require a strong partnership among all of us. 

As always, our top priority is to keep our campers, families, and staff safe. In light of our current reality, we have reviewed and updated our medical protocols and practices using recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), North Carolina State Department of Health and Human Services, American Camp Association (ACA), Pamlico County Health Department, and with guidance from our Camp Medical Advisory Committee.

In our commitment to the health and protection of our families and staff, we will continue to monitor guidance from the CDC and other state health agencies. We recognize that recommendations and guidelines will change and commit to updating our programming and protocols accordingly.

Overview of our General Protocols

  • Our 2020 medical protocols have been designed using the CDC/ACA field guide guidelines, NC State Health and Human Services guidelines, and guidance from our Medical Advisory Committee
  • Our health center will be staffed by nurses with resources in assessing COVID-19 
  • We have all necessary PPE supplies including N95 masks, gowns and shields for our medical staff
  • We have designed our programs in response to the State and CDC’s social distancing, small group cohorts, and cleanliness and sanitation requirements
  • We will not offer any special transportation including to and from airports
  • Masks will be worn by staff when social distancing isn’t possible (ex: zipline)

Masks

All persons age 5 and older are required to wear face masks when they are unable to maintain a 6-foot distance from others and while in shared spaces outside of the cabin. We recognize that there will be questions surrounding face coverings and how they are feasible in the day-to-day life of Camp. We want to assure you that staff will provide guidance throughout the weekend. Please note that there are some exceptions to this order. If you or your family members meet these criteria, please communicate with the Camp Director upon arrival.

Staff
