Registration for summer 2022 opens this spring!

Announcement

We realize there is a great deal of concern right now about the coronavirus; you likely have questions about Camp o’ the Pines and the efforts being made to manage it. We want you to be assured that the health of our campers and staff is our highest priority.

We are planning to make the scheduled camp programs available for this summer. However, we will be operating with reduced camper capacity and are taking additional steps to safeguard the health of our campers and staff. We will continue to monitor the situation and will update here as needed.
We are attentively working with local health department agencies and monitoring federal and state guidelines. Preventative measures, including heightened disinfecting and sanitary procedures, have been taken to promote a healthy environment on our campus.
We do ask that all potential campers be symptom-free of fever and respiratory illness for at least twenty-four hours before arriving at camp. Thank you for working with us to ensure the health of our campers, staff, and community. We look forward to seeing you this summer.

Camp fees for any coronavirus (COVID-19) related cancellation will be refunded upon request.

View the steps we are taking to make sure your campers have a fun, exciting, and safe experience.

Daily COVID Screening

Before You Arrive

Fourteen days before you arrive, begin monitoring your campers for symptoms of COVID-19.

  • Fever of 100.4℉ or greater
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath
  • Muscle aches
  • Loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat

Determine if anyone has been in close contact with a person who has tested positive for COVID-19.

Campers will not be permitted to attend camp if the above conditions are true.

When You Arrive—Check-In

During check–in, your camper will go through a health screening process.

To help protect our guests and staff, check-in will be as contactless as possible.

This screening will include:

  • Temperature check
  • Questionnaire (to ensure no risk or exposure has occurred to the attendee’s knowledge)

The following questions will be asked:

  • Has the participant had close contact with anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 14 days?
  • Has the participant had symptoms of or tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 14 days?
  • Is the participant feeling ill and/or running a fever?

While at Camp

Daily screening will be conducted for all campers.

This screening will include:

  • Temperature check
  • COVID symptoms evaluation

If a camper shows symptoms of COVID-19, an isolation room will be provided for the camper until the situation can be discussed with parents and an appropriate course of action can be followed.

Camp o’ the Pines’ camp nurse will discuss further clinical evaluation if needed.

Frequent Cleaning and Handwashing

Our cleaning procedures are in adherence to local health department advisement, and we will continue with the directed protocol and increased cleanliness of high-traffic and touch points throughout each day.

Facility Cleaning Care

  • CDC-approved cleaning protocols have been implemented for all camp facilities.
  • Frequent-touch points will receive additional attention from CDC-approved disinfectants.
  • A trained remediation team is available to provide deep disinfecting services as needed.

What Your Camper Can Do

  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

Social Distancing and Face Masks

Based on current conditions, we will be implementing appropriate social distancing guidelines throughout all camp areas.

Face masks will be worn where it is not possible to practice social distancing.

Check-In

To ensure a more contactless, check-in experience, payments must be made online prior to check-in.

Limiting Campers per Cabin

To allow for social distancing, the number of campers assigned to each cabin will be limited.

Meals

Each meal will be pre-plated (except for those with food allergies).

Campers will be spread out in the Skillet to ensure social distancing.

Services and Activities

Campers will be spread out for activities and while they are in the chapel to ensure social distancing.
