2022 Summer Camp COVID-19 Protocols & Requirements

Our COVID-19 safety protocols and requirements are subject to change throughout the year, and we will continue to monitor and provide you with updates accordingly.

We will make adjustments to COVID-19 based on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendations, state regulations, and American Camp Association and Association of Camp Nursing guidance.

We remain optimistic that Summer 2022 will return to some normalcy; however, please note that we will continue to implement a conservative approach to COVID-19 safety. We will require you and your family to help keep our camp community safe from outbreaks by adhering to the protocols and procedures outlined below, as well as any new requirements or modifications from the time of registration to the start of your camper’s summer camp session.

Camper protocols and requirements for participation in 2022 summer camps will include but are not limited to the following:

  • Pre-Camp Arrival Health Screenings
  • At Camp Daily Health Screenings of campers conducted by camp staff
  • All campers are required to EITHER: 1. Provide proof of being fully vaccinated for COVID-19 (fully vaccinated is defined as 2 weeks after a two-dose series) OR 2. Show proof of a negative COVID test taken 1-3 days prior to camp arrival. PCR tests are required. (Rapid tests are not as effective in detecting COVID.)
  • Vaccination cards must be uploaded to the Jumbula registration site before arrival at camp.
    Universal masking of campers and staff when inside buildings and if physical distancing is not possible during prolonged periods outside.
  • Camp Staff are required to comply with our Mandatory Vaccination Policy, requiring staff to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 unless a reasonable accommodation is approved.

Camper protocols and requirements for participation in 2022 summer camps currently being considered as requirements include but are not limited to the following:

  • Campers may be required to be FULLY immunized, including the COVID-19 vaccine, before camp begins. Campers with medical exceptions will be allowed at camp with approved documentation from a health care provider.
    • Please note – what currently defines full vaccination continues to be defined by the CDC as being two weeks after the second dose in a two-dose series (e.g., Pfizer or Moderna). This definition is increasingly being shown not to be the optimal protection; thus, a change in the definition of fully vaccinated to include a third shot is possible to complete this requirement.
  • Pre-arrival PCR COVID-19 tests may be required.

Thank you for your patience and flexibility as we once again work diligently to pledge to keep our camp families, staff, and communities safe. We are looking forward to Summer 2022 and working with you to make it fun and safe for our campers.
