Summer 2022 COVID-19 Protocols Update: June 16, 2022

Dear Camper Parent, 

We look forward to welcoming your child to Covenant Point this summer! As we complete our staff training and preparation of our facilities and programs, I want to alert you to an important change in your preparation for delivering your child to camp – the requirement of a COVID test before you leave home. 

In response to increasing cases in our area, and in the hope that we can remain fully operational all summer to serve all campers, we are asking campers to:

  1. Test for COVID within 24 hours of your departure for camp. Rapid tests are acceptable. Upon arrival, you/your camper will be asked about a negative test result. We require only a verbal verification of a negative test result to remain at camp.
  2. Contact our camp COVID nurse, Kira Goetz, if your home test is positive. Additionally, please contact Kira if your child has shown COVID symptoms in the five days prior to the start of your camp program (symptoms include headache, sore throat, fever, fatigue, cough, etc.) or if your camper has had a close contact with a COVID-positive person during the five days prior to the start of camp. 

You may obtain free, at-home tests at covid.gov. If you are unable to test at home, we will administer a test upon arrival. If your child tests positive then, they will not be able to remain at camp. If your child tests positive at any time during camp, we will work with you to arrange their pick up as soon as possible. Until you arrive, we will care for your child in a quarantined environment. 

Additionally, we are continuing some previous COVID protocols:

  • Meals will be served and eaten in outdoor tents
  • Rapid tests will be conducted onsite if merited (we will always obtain parental permission first)
  • Temporary quarantine spaces have been set aside for COVID positive campers until they can be picked up
  • Programming will occur outdoors and/or in smaller cohorts, weather permitting

Thank you for helping us create a safe, healthy experience for all campers. If you have questions, please contact Kira at the information below. 

Sincerely, 

Erik Strom, Executive Director
Covenant Point Bible Camp
