We will continue to enact COVID procedures as pandemic conditions require.  Camp is all about the outdoors, which works to everyone’s advantage.  Face coverings are required in the camp dining hall and we will check everyone’s temperatures and for symptoms at each meal.  Housing capacities have been reduced.  Your organization can decide on masking or distancing requirements within your living quarters.  Groups must maintain social distancing and wear masks when in close contact with other groups.  Ample hand sanitizer and hand washing facilities are available.
