Below is our summer framework to Covid-19 at Farm Camp. We will update these procedures with the guidance of the American Camp Association, CDC and our public health department as recommended.
- All campers must be fully vaccinated by the start of camp (two-weeks post their second shot). Boosters for eligible campers are strongly encouraged, but not required.
- A negative Covid-19 test result will be required before arriving to camp. The test can either be a PCR Test within 72 hours prior to arrival or an antigen test the day before that is administered by a third-party or supervised. If your camper has had Covid-19 within 60 days, a negative antigen test is required (results will need to be uploaded online in the Forms & Documents section of your camper account or emailed to the camp office). Accepted tests include:
- A PCR test 72 hours before the start of camp
- An antigen test the day before camp that is Telehealth Travel Certified or administered by a third-party (Pharmacy, Doctor’s office, etc).
- Antigen tests can be scheduled at most local pharmacies
- At-home tests with a telehealth component are also accepted, some examples of this type of test include the Abbot BinaxNOW emed test, Azova, Qured, Quest Diagnostic, and Cue Health.
- Photo of an at home test taken on your own WILL NOT be accepted
- People who are fully vaccinated with an FDA-authorized vaccine can travel safely within the United States. Please review the CDC’s Travel During COVID-19 page.
- If traveling to camp on a plane, campers and families MUST wear a tight, well-fitted surgical, KN95 or N95 mask in the airport and during travel.
- If busing to camp, campers must have a negative test result submitted to camp. Tight, well-fitted surgical, KN95 or N95 masks must be worn on the bus.
- If you are feeling symptomatic or have a fever, please postpone arrival until your camper is healthy. Please email [email protected].
- Masks are not required for activities but will be worn in exposure situations.
- Masks will be worn in any indoor environment when not in units.
- All staff will be fully vaccinated and up-to-date on vaccinations, including receiving boosters if eligible.
- Staff will be tested upon their arrival to camp and before the start of each camper session.
- During time-off, staff are expected to wear masks indoors while in public settings and dine outside to limit any possible exposures.
Farm Camp is well suited for many of the current recommendations. We are committed to running a quality program that creates space for campers to connect socially and re-engage in community.
