Covid-19 Update

Virginia Outside Covid-19 Guidelines

**Updated November 2020**

COVID-19 SCREENING

Virginia Outside is encouraging all of our camp families to self screen and monitor their own health prior to sending your child to camp. Since schools have reopened and we have all started to adjust to the normality of protecting ourselves and others from spreading Covid-19 that we ask everyone to take responsibility for monitoring their children’s health and ensuring that they understand the importance of following safety protocols while attending camp.

PRE-SCREENING:

We are no longer requiring a Pre Screening Form.

We continue to recommend following these precautions prior to attending camp:

INITIAL SCREENING:

https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/symptoms-testing/symptoms.html

This Initial Screening on the first day of camp includes many, if not all, of the same screenings as our Pre-Screening process but it is necessary to help our staff determine if your child is permitted to attend camp or if they require additional screening and evaluation by a medical professional. This redundancy is to help us better ensure the health and safety of all campers, parents/guardians, and staff involved. 

ONGOING SCREENING:

CAMP PROTOCOLS DURING COVID-19

We look forward to providing the same fun-filled weeks of adventure to our campers this summer as we have over the past 15 years but we will obviously be making some adjustments to our camps to ensure that we can provide a safe, healthy environment for your child and our staff. 

These protocols stem from recommendations made by the American Camp Association & Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.These protocols outline the guidelines for campers during each day and recommended practices for parents to help reduce the spread of Covid-19.
