NOTE: These protocols will be updated weekly and adjusted based on prudence and latest recommendations to ensure the safest environment possible.
Counseling / Leadership Staff will limit contact as much as possible 3 days prior to event.
Each camper must provide a negative rapid test (home or doctors office) result taken the day of check-in.
WRITE YOUR NAME AND DATE ON THE PLASTIC TEST WELL (the plastic device that shows the results).
BRING IT TO CAMP WHERE IT WILL BE COLLECTED. No Test Well? Then bring a copy of the results with you to turn in.
If your test indicates that it should not be read after 30 minutes, or if it indicates that the results can change if too much time passes, please take a photo and bring that instead.
Masks are optional.
Hand sanitizing station situated in dining hall; (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 session 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 Camp Swamp 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 the first 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)!
