COVID-19 Mitigation policies:
In order to attend camp, students and adults must be vaccinated for COVID-19 or have a negative COVID-19 test within 48hrs of the start of camp. Due to the length of time we will be away and distance of travel it is important for contact tracing to know who is vaccinated/unvaccinated. Vaccination status will not be shared outside of our staff team and will only be used as needed for contact tracing and quarantining while at camp if someone begins showing symptoms of COVID-19 and/or tests positive. Read more detail about our camp COVID policies here
*COVID-19 Vaccination Status (at the time of camp):
Though we are doing everything that we can to prevent someone from arriving to camp with COVID-19 or any illness, we recognize in this unique season that we need to be prepared to respond in the event that a student or leader becomes ill. In order to do that well, we need to assemble a group of 4-6 leaders who plan to be at camp who would be willing to be on a "COVID response team." Some of the things we may need include:
- Stay in adjoining cabin or inn room with sick student (not in the same room), while we wait for parents to come pick them up
- Speak with sick student to understand symptoms & administer COVID-19 nasal swab
- Take symptoms/information and in partnership with staff make decisions on when and how to get the student home
- Willing to stay up to 4 hours late on Sunday to wait for parent OR potentially drive sick student back to Madison in a provided rental vehicle (if someone becomes ill on Sunday morning right before busses leave).
**We recognize there are varying levels of comfort that one may feel with the different things listed above, if you'd like to join the team please respond below with your level of comfort.
*Willing to be on the COVID response team?
For those who answered yes: Is there anything you'd like us to know related to your level of comfort with the varying 'sick person' response jobs listed above?
