With consideration of state and federal guidance, as well as our experience operating successfully last summer, we are pleased to share our current plan to reduce the spread of Covid-19 at YSSC.
YSSC does not require campers to be vaccinated against Covid-19. However, all seasonal summer staff will be fully vaccinated.
We will be continuing our partnership with Heed Health for affordable pre-camp Rapid Antigen Testing for all campers. We will provide a link for parents to register their camper for a proctored Rapid Antigen Test. Additionally, should a camper exhibit Covid-19 symptoms during their stay at YSSC, our camp nurses will administer onsite Rapid Antigen Tests to confirm their health status.
Campers will be asked to wear masks in group transportation (charter buses) to and from camp. At this time, we do not anticipate requiring campers to wear masks during their camp experience. YSSC does, however, reserve the right to require masks in vehicles and large indoor gatherings if positive Covid-19 cases spike throughout the summer. Campers who feel more comfortable wearing a mask during their session are welcome and encouraged to do so.
Daily Health Screening
Campers will receive a daily symptom and temperature check.
Convenient hand washing stations and hand sanitizer are located throughout the grounds making it easy for campers to wash/sanitize frequently. This helps prevent the spread of the Covid-19 virus, as well as all kinds of common illnesses that can be passed between campers.
Most camp activities will take place outdoors or with increased ventilation as they were last year. Along with regular daily cleaning, high traffic and high touch areas will receive extra cleaning and disinfecting.
In Case of a Positive Test
In the event that a camper tests positive for Covid-19 during their session, the parent or guardian of the camper will need to pick them up to return home to recover. The camper’s cabin group will be monitored closely and tested if symptomatic, but will continue to be active at camp with appropriate accommodations until they can be cleared.
What if a camper’s sibling tests positive for Covid-19 before camp?
Due to the close contact, the camper must wait a minimum of 3 full days depending on level of exposure and test negative before arriving at camp. Please contact the camp office to determine the waiting period.
