Health & Safety Plan

 

Camper, guest and staff safety has always been of utmost importance to us here at Camp Lone Star. We want to make you aware of how we are protecting you, your camper, and your group as you visit Camp Lone Star. Many of these procedures we have always been, and will continue to be, committed to; some procedures we are enhancing to reduce risk; and a few are newly implemented in an effort to be a part of the solution to COVID-19. Camp Lone Star will continue to follow the recommendations of the Governor’s office and our local Fayette County officials, and our regional health department. While much can still change between now and summer, here is an overview of our current plan:

 

FAQS & SPECIFIC GUIDANCE:

People come to Camp Lone Star for a variety of reasons, and we are committed to doing everything within our abilities to keep you safe. We’ve put together a few documents outlining the most Frequently Asked Questions with some guidelines for each type of event.

 

PLAN OVERVIEW

OUTSIDE WHEN POSSIBLE

Campers will remain outside whenever possible for activities, Bible study, and even the opportunity to eat in picnic areas. Camper groups will have designated rainy day indoor areas to limit large group interactions.

SMALL GROUPS & SEPARATE COHORTS

Campers will be placed in a cabin group of no more than 10 campers. Cabin groups will be paired together to form a cohort group of no more than 20 campers.

Camper cabin groups will be paired with one other cabin group to form a cohort for the session. These cohorts will remain separate from all other cohorts. Any activities involving the entire camp will be restricted to activities where adequate separation between different cohorts can be maintained such as song time and evening devotions.

ENHANCED CLEANING

Enhanced cleaning protocols will be used for shared spaces and commonly touched surfaces. Cabins will also be cleaned daily to create a cleanest space possible. Additionally, all program equipment is sanitized before and after use.

HEALTH SCREENINGS

All campers will complete a pre-camp health screening process. Campers will also go through an on-site health screening during check-in which will include lice, temperature and symptoms checks. Please know that we are not just screening for COVID symptoms but any and all illnesses. It’s important that if your child is sick in any way, you contact our office to reschedule for a future week. Campers will be daily symptom-checked as an added precaution.

OPTIONAL COVID TESTING

COVID-19 testing will NOT be required for campers before they arrive for their camp sessions. We will have free COVID tests available to be used by our staff as a “rule-out” option on a case-by-base basis during the health screening process.

FACE COVERINGS AT PARENT’S DISCRETION

Since a majority of our summer camp day takes place outside, we do not plan on requiring our campers or counselors to wear face coverings at Camp Lone Star. However, we will fully support any family’s decision to have their camper wear a face covering during their summer session.

STAFF VACCINATIONS

We anticipate a vast majority of our summer staff will be vaccinated (some naturally) for COVID-19 prior to serving this summer. Staff that have not been vaccinated will be scheduled strategically each week in an effort to mitigate any possible exposure.
