In this ever-changing pandemic landscape, the health of our community remains our top priority. As we prepare for camps, we will monitor CDC and local governmental guidance and policies to determine whether it’s safe to gather and what protocols we should have in place.

Additional protocols may be added as the camp season approaches. We will update this page with details about the covid policies of our four camp facilities as they become available.

If you have questions about these guidelines, please send an email to

As of January 17, 2024:

  • Up-to-date vaccinations for Covid-19 are recommended but not required for CDSS camp sessions
  • Up-to-date vaccination is considered both
    • Two doses of the Pfizer, Moderna, or AstraZeneca vaccine or a single dose of Johnson & Johnson/Janssen vaccine plus two weeks
    • At least one booster within one year of the start of your camp session.
  • All campers are strongly encouraged to take a rapid antigen test result 24-48 hours prior to arrival at camp.
    • Campers may substitute a PCR or NAAT test for the pre-camp rapid antigen test. We recommend taking a PCR test where possible.
  • Campers are required to bring a minimum of four rapid antigen tests per person.
  • Campers may have to self-test with a rapid antigen test upon arrival at camp and during the session as directed by the CDSS staff.
    • Additional testing may be implemented due to increased Covid-19 transmission levels or emergence of a more severe variant.
  • A masking requirement for all camp sessions will be considered and determined closer to the beginning of the camp season. 
Precautions Before Camp
  • To reduce the likelihood of spreading infection, we recommend that campers wear masks in any indoor public setting the week prior to camp.

Protocols may be adjusted as the camp season approaches.
