2022 Summer Camp
Indian Lake Christian Camp is working to make this summer the very best summer ever for our campers and volunteers! The safety and well-being of our campers, their families, and our staff has always been Indian Lake Camp's top priority. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 health crisis, Camp has put into place safety requirements, to ensure camp is as safe as possible and that we’re meeting and exceeding all of the guidelines set forth by the State of Maryland and Harford County. This is a fluid environment and we will be monitoring as regulations change over the next few months. Yes, Camp will look a little different than past summers, but the fun, relationships, and connection to Christ will still be there.
We are looking at all the best practices that worked for camps last summer that got to open, following the CDC and ACA (American Camp Association) guidelines, and will implement as many best practices that we can to keep campers, staff, and volunteers safe.
Camper drop-off and pick-up will also be different this year. We understand that dropping off your child for a session of camp is tough, and we want to make the transition as easy as possible! Drop-off for overnight camp will be on a rolling basis. We will have assigned drop-off times, so that you are not waiting in a long line. Parents will not be allowed in the cabins with their campers. This is to help limit the number of people in the cabin at one time and the spread of germs.
Day Camp drop off will be similar. Parents will not exit their vehicle but circle the parking lot to drop off their camper. Pick-up will be the same. Parents will remain in their vehicles, sign for their camper, load, and go.
Because things change so quickly, we will continue to monitor COVID cases and plan to run camp as long as state and local regulations allow. If during camp a group has a staff member or a child that is found to have a confirmed or probable case of COVID-19:
- The local health department as well as the parents of children in the group will be notified immediately, and the group shall quarantine following the CDC guidelines.
- Individuals may not return to attend or work at camp until self-quarantine is completed and clearance from the individual’s primary care physician is obtained.
- Based on consultation with the local health department, the entire facility may be temporarily closed based on the level of contact and potential exposure. If recommended, Camp will wait 24 hours, then complete extra cleaning/disinfection of all areas of the facility.
If we need to cancel camp as a result of COVID-19, we will honor our policy of providing a prorated refund for the days for which camp is cancelled.
There are so many details that go into making camp a safe and fun place for your camper. We have tried to cover most of them in this letter, but if you have other questions, please feel free to reach out to us for details or clarification!
We are praying for an amazing summer and cannot wait to see you at camp!
