This modified summer program for teens and young adults is, and will continue to be, in strict accordance with local, state and Center for Disease Control recommendations and guidelines. 

The health and safety of our campers and staff remain our highest priority. Below, you will find a summary of actions we are taking to help ensure we are lowering COVID-19 risk as much as possible. You can find more information in a letter from EHC Director Tony Fletcher, here.

Before camp we are:

  • Requiring mandatory Vaccines for ALL staff members and eligible campers: If eligible (currently 12 years of age and older), campers should be fully vaccinated for COVID-19. Ideally, this means waiting at least 2 weeks after completing your COVID-19 vaccination before traveling to camp.

Medical and religious vaccination exemptions will be accepted with the appropriate documentation.

  • Campers should follow guidance for travelers in the 14 days before camp arrival to reduce exposure to COVID-19. Unvaccinated campers are strongly encouraged to engage in a 2-week prearrival quarantine that includes physical distancing, mask-wearing when not at home, avoiding unnecessary travel, and refraining from indoor social gatherings with people outside of their households.
  • Ineligible Campers that are not fully vaccinated must provide proof of a negative viral test taken no more than 1–3 days before arriving at camp.

At Camp, amongst other precautions, we are:

  • Reducing participation size down nearly 50 percent
  • Intensified cleaning and disinfection practices within our facilities and premises cleaning and disinfecting of frequently touched surfaces such as drinking fountains and door handles.
  • Limiting the number of items that are shared or touched between campers and staff.
  • Providing individual supplies to each camper when possible.
  • Keeping campers in small groups (cohorts) of six and spacing them out by prioritizing outdoor activities
  • Promoting healthy hygiene practices by teaching campers the importance of washing their hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Encouraging campers to cover their coughs and sneezes with a tissue or to use the inside of their elbow and by posting signs about these healthy habits around the camp facility.
  • Requesting that staff and campers wear a cloth face covering as feasible, and in times when physical distancing is difficult.
  • If a child does get sick at camp, we have identified an area where they can rest, be watched after, and safely isolate themselves from others. We will communicate with parents or caretakers directly and, if necessary, arrange for the child to be taken to a healthcare facility for care.

We ask that you help us protect the health of campers this summer. Anyone who is sick or was sick with COVID-19 or recently in contact with someone with COVID-19 in the last 14 days— including staff, campers, and families— should not come to camp. Be on the lookout for symptoms of COVID-19, which include fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, muscle pain, sore throat, and loss of taste or smell. Call your doctor if you think you or a family member is sick.

After Camp

  • Camp staff and campers who are not fully vaccinated should get tested with a viral test 3–5 days after traveling home from camp AND stay home and self-quarantine for a full 7 days after travel. Refer to CDC’s Travel During COVID-19 website for more information about what to do after traveling home from camp. Fully vaccinated people should follow current guidance for domestic travel and may not need to be tested or self-quarantine after camp unless they are experiencing symptoms.

If you have a specific question about this plan or COVID-19, please contact Tony Fletcher at 415-694-7319. You can also find more information about COVID-19 at CDC’s website or on CDC’s website for youth and summer camps.
