Washington, residential summer camps just received updated guidelines to operate this summer. We will be working on updating this page.
- COVID Safety Policies: We will be implementing COVID safety procedures determined by Washington State guidelines and recommendations from the American Camp Association. Known protocols will include health screening and temperature checks, wearing masks when necessary or if the child want to wear a mask, and frequent cleaning. Campers and staff will be required to show proof of a negative covid test taken within three days of camp as well as quarantine from the date of the test until arrival at camp.
A health screening will be conducted during the check-in process. The screening will consist of:
- Check for observable signs of illness (runny nose, cough, etc.)
- Temperature check – must be below 100.4 degrees F without use of fever-reducing medications
- Attestation that the child and household members:
- Have not had signs of illness for 14 days prior to camp
- Have not been diagnosed with or suspected to have COVID-19
- Have not been exposed to anyone known or suspected to have COVID-19
Any child who exhibits symptoms of illness, has a fever above 100.4 degrees F, or who may have contracted or been exposed to someone with COVID-19 will not be allowed to stay at camp.
In addition to check-in health screening, routine health screening will occur throughout the camp session to check for signs of illness.
COVID-19 Testing & Vaccines
Per Washington State guidelines, all campers and staff must either:
- Be fully vaccinated when camp begins, OR provide an exemption
- Show proof of a negative COVID-19 test within three days of arrival
Please take a picture of your test results and make a copy to drop off at check in and please upload the picture to your account. We will not have time to look at all of the accounts for the uploads so please bring a copy of the test result.
Masking (this could change if the health regulations change)
Please pack a couple of masks just in case. We will not require a mask to be worn but if you or your child feel safer wearing a mask then the camper can wear a mask.
