Sickness at Home

Any Camper and Staff Member who is experiencing (or who has someone in their household experiencing) Covid-19-like symptoms including fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, chills, body aches, fatigue, headache, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea, new loss of taste or smell or eye drainage or infection should stay home.  

Such campers or staff members may return to camp when: 

  • They are fever-free for 24 hours without the help of fever-reducing medication. 
  • A doctor has evaluated the individual and determines that Covid-19 is not the cause of the symptoms. 

OR 

  • They receive a negative Covid-19 test result. 

A camper or staff member with symptoms of illness, but no probable exposure to Covid-19, should be monitored at home for at least 24 hours before returning to camp fever-free and symptom-free.  

 

Sickness at Camp

The child exhibiting symptoms will immediately be moved to an area away from the group (with a staff member supervising at an appropriate distance).  The child’s parents will be called and asked to pick-up the camper as soon as possible.  

The staff member exhibiting symptoms will immediately go home. 

Such campers or staff members may return to camp when: 

  • They are fever-free for 24 hours without the help of fever-reducing medication. 
  • A doctor has evaluated the individual and determines that Covid-19 is not the cause of the symptoms. 

OR 

  • They receive a negative Covid-19 test result. 

 

Exposure & Positive Cases

  • If your child has been exposed to Covid-19:
    • As per CDC guidance, protocols vary based on vaccination status:
      • Vaccinated and/or had confirmed COVID-19 within the past 90 days (you tested positive using a PCR test): you do not need to stay home unless you develop symptoms. 
      • Unvaccinated: stay home and quarantine for at least 5 full days. If you do not develop symptoms and test negative (see below), you may then return to camp.

 

  • If your child has tested positive for Covid-19:
    • Notify us immediately and follow CDC guidelines to know when it would be safe to return to camp.
      • Stay home and quarantine for at least 5 full days.
        • If you did not have symptoms, end isolation after at least 5 full days after your positive test.
        • If you had symptoms, end isolation after 5 full days if you are fever-free for 24 hours (without the use of fever-reducing medication) and your symptoms are improving. 
        • If you got very sick from or have a weakened immune system, isolate for at least 10 days and consult your doctor before ending isolation.
        • It is recommended to take precautions until day 10 in any of the above circumstances.

 

  • If we are made aware of a positive Covid-19 case at camp:
    • We will notify all camp families and staff, keeping the sick individual’s name confidential.

 

*Please note that masks are not required at camp.  However, Campers and Staff are certainly welcome to wear one if they so choose.

*Please note, no refunds will be given for Covid-19 related absences.
