COVID-Careful Program

Camp Newaygo will be utilizing the risk mitigation strategies that led to a successful COVID-free summer in 2020 & 2021.

2021 COVID GUIDEBOOK 

  • Upon arrival at camp we will conduct a rapid antigen test using a nasal swab for all campers, regardless of vaccination status. This test will be completed by Camp Newaygo staff, as campers and families wait in their vehicle. The rapid test takes approximately 20 minutes for a negative result. If a camper tests positive, they will be eligible receive a partial refund, consistent with our 2021 refund policy.  Camp will be using the BinaxNOW™ COVID-19 Ag Card, a rapid antigen test for on-site testing. This is the same test used by the State of Michigan for the MI Safer Sports COVID Testing Program. The cost for this test has been added into the registration cost for the program.
  • All Camp Newaygo Staff and on-site volunteers are fully vaccinated for COVID-19, and will be tested prior to camper arrival. While we
    strongly encourage parents to have their eligible children vaccinated, we do not anticipate that a camper’s vaccination status will alter the camp program day, because we will have a mix of vaccinated and unvaccinated campers. Campers who are fully vaccinated prior to the winter reunion will still be required to complete a COVID-19 test upon arrival. You can schedule a vaccine appointment at https://www.vaccines.gov/
  • Staff, parents, and campers will all be required to wear masks during the check-in process.
  • Parents/guardians will be limited to their vehicle and the parking area during check in.
  • Upon arrival at check-in, campers will complete the rapid antigen test using a nasal swab
  • 14 days prior to the Winter Reunion, all staff & camper parents will be asked to log daily temperatures of their camper using the PRECAMP HEALTH SCREENING FORM. Staff/campers should self-screen for COVID-19 symptoms.
  • Parents or guardians will be able to hand off any medications to camp staff. Please have medications labeled clearly with name, prescription, dose amount, and time of delivery (breakfast, lunch, dinner, or evening) and in their original prescription bottles and sealed in a ziplock bag. Medications not in their original prescription bottles will not be accepted.
  • After your camper has completed the check-in process, and received a negative COVID-19 test result, a staff member will take your child to the lodge to help them unpack and settle in. Parents will not be able to accompany campers outside of the vehicle.
  • If you need to speak to our camp staff about anything, we will facilitate these conversations. Our goal is to be proactive, and have as many of these conversations as possible before check in, to limit exposure.
  • Each family must arrange for and provide transportation to and from Camp. We ask that all staff and campers joining for the Winter Reunion travel with personal vehicles and do not use public transportation methods to get to camp.
  • Because of our program design and structure, winter reunion campers will not be required to mask at camp, after the check-in process is complete. Campers should bring masks for emergency situations, like if a camper needed to be transported into the local hospital for treatment. We will adhere to all current MDHHS Epidemic orders on masking, and will make adjustments if requirements change prior to the start of the event.
