COVID Safety Guidelines and Protocol

We are dedicated to the safety and well-being of our staff, campers & their families. Please carefully read through Camp Wingmann’s guidelines for camp. We are utilizing the ACA’s Field Guide for Camps to ensure every detail of the camp experience is addressed as we work to provide a safe environment for our participants. Below is a quick snapshot of our guidelines.


**Please note that the guidelines outlined in this document may change as the status of COVID-19 evolves. And because the status of COVID-19 is unpredictable, this policy can change suddenly. Please be mindful that the policy you read in preparation of your camp session or event may evolve by the time your camp session or event actually occurs. We appreciate your understanding and support as we make the best possible decisions regarding the health and safety for our camp community.


Summer Staff
All Staff are required to participate in staff training one week prior to camp opening. That time will not only provides an opportunity to screen our staff, but it is time set aside to instruct them on disease prevention & control including but not limited to:

 

  • Handwashing

  • Sanitation & disinfection

  • Small & large group protocol

  • Symptom Identification

  • Quarantine procedures


All staff must be tested prior to staff week training. Staff will be asked to stay on site for the full month of July to decrease risk of exposure in between camp sessions.


Weekend Event Staff
All Staff serving in a weekend role (Winter Camp, Weekend Retreat) will arrive prior to the event to received adequate training (pending their role) for the following:

  • Handwashing

  • Sanitation & disinfection

  • Small & large group protocol

  • Symptom Identification

  • Quarantine procedures


Kitchen

  • All Kitchen crew must wear mask at all times.

  • Kitchen will be cleaned and sanitized each day or before any shift transitions.


Campers
Campers are required to prescreen prior to their registered camp session to give insight into each individual’s health status prior to arrival. With the assistance of parents/guardians) they should self-monitor for 14 days and conduct pre-screening activities such as:

 

  • Taking and recording their own temperature for 14 days before camp (refer to the individual instructions provided with the thermometer).

  • Self-screening for the presence of symptoms (fever of 100.4 °F or greater, cough, shortness of breath, diarrhea, fatigue, headache, muscle aches, nausea, loss of taste or smell, sore throat, vomiting, etc.) within the past two weeks.

  • Determining if, within the past two weeks, the individual has traveled nationally or internationally.

  • Determining if the individual has been in close contact with a person who has been diagnosed with, tested for, or quarantined as a result of COVID-19.


If at any time a camper or staff member exhibits symptoms of COVID-19, we will send them home.


Nurse
As is our normal protocol, we will have a registered nurse onsite per session to provide expert screening and medical guidance throughout the week.


Our nurses have served in COVID-19 responses throughout the nation. They are prepared and equipped to identify symptoms, when to quarantine, and when to seek advanced care.


Cabins

  • Cabins will have a 10-camper maximum (this number does not include up to 3 additional staff) and will undergo daily cleanings which will include daily sanitation & disinfection of the entire cabin.

  • Posters and other documentation will be in place offering more guidance and reinforcement of best practices for our campers.


Distancing Protocols

  • Everyone must wear a mask during check-in and check-out

  • Our schedule will be configured in a way that supports more “cabin specific” activities in order

  • to reduce the number of large gatherings throughout the campus.

  • All group sizes will comply with state and/or local requirements for proper staff to camper ratios and minimum staffing requirements.


Mask & Supplies

  • Masks will be mandatory during indoor large group gatherings; However, we will plan to move many of our large group gatherings outdoors (ex. covered open air Gymnasium, kickball field, beachfront, etc. and have campers organized by cabins in an effort to reduce the need for mask. (disposable facemask will be provided additionally cloth face mask will be for sale during check-in & canteen)

  • (Again) All group sizes will comply with state and/or local requirements for proper staff to camper ratios and minimum staffing requirements.

  • We will obtain and supply all antimicrobial hand soaps, hand sanitizers, and cleaning disinfectants (ex. Lysol), prior to all camp session.


Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns. We will be happy to address them as best as we can. As always, we appreciate your support of Camp Wingmann as we continue to work to provide a fun & safe space for our staff, campers, & families to know and grow in Christ!
