Masks are required indoors for dining hall and any close-quarter games; not in cabins or outdoors with open spacing.
Daily rigorous contact surface cleaning in bathrooms, water fountains, and dining hall tables.
Hand sanitizing stations situated in dining hall and pavilion; (campers encouraged to bring own sanitizer and carry with them).
Daily temperature checks.
No one, except necessary deliveries, i.e. food and mail, permitted to enter premises once the summer starts.
Anyone exhibiting any known common sign of COVID while at camp will immediately be quarantined to the Medical Cabin and sent home; contact-tracing will commence: their cabin-mates and most frequented playmates will be given an onsite Rapid Test and monitored, as determined by the medical staff; parents will be contacted immediately.
Our goal is to provide the safest possible environment without diminishing the quality of the Swamp camp relational experience. We are adhering to requirements as established by state of Georgia and following appropriate and relative guidelines as established by the American Camping Association Pandemic Field Guide for Camps. The dining hall will adhere to appropriate Georgia regulations as stipulated for restaurants in the Governor's Executive Order. As always, we will constantly monitor these requirements and adjust accordingly.
We request that all campers and counselors quarantine themselves for a suggested period of 3-10 days prior to arriving at camp to better ensure the safety of everyone attending camp and for another 3-10 days upon returning home for the safety of their friends and loved ones.
Prior to camp, self-screen for 14 days 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.
DO NOT COME TO CAMP IF ANY OF THESE SYMPTOMS ARE PRESENT WITHIN 72 HOURS OF YOUR EXPECTED ARRIVAL TIME.
This is vital! In the past, there have been campers many weeks who come to the nurse with a fever Sunday evening and when asked how long they have had a fever, they say for a couple of days. We know how badly you want your child to be at camp; we ask that you think of others at this time. Any carelessness on your part could shut the camp down and affect many campers.
As with any camp experience, we cannot guarantee with 100% certainty that no one will get sick; however, we are striving to do everything we can to make this "the safest place on the planet, besides your home." We ask for your prayers for no snakes, no breaks...and no shakes (virus)!
