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:
& 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.
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
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
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
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.
All campers will complete a
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.
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.
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.
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.
