Due to increased health concerns regarding Corona virus these risk management policies will be implemented:
Staff will be affirmed virus free before arrival.
Cleared staff will stay on-site during the six weeks of summer session to limit exposure risk.
Camp sessions will be limited to smaller groups as recommended by the local and national health authorities.
These recommendations may be updated as data and governmental policies change.
Frequently throughout each day, staff will ensure sanitation of doorknobs, light switches,
bathrooms, counters, or any frequently touched areas/items on the campgrounds.
Counselors are responsible for ensuring campers wash their hands before and after every meal,
following personal hygiene and toileting and after every activity with shared materials.
Counselors will encourage all campers to avoid touching their faces; reinforce all other risk reduction behaviors
such as avoiding breathing, coughing, and sneezing near or towards others.
Temperature checks of all staff and campers will be conducted upon arrival to camp, and every day following.
If possible and accessible, virus tests will be implemented as part of all campers’ pre-camp medical screening.
For their own safety, severely medically fragile campers that are at risk for virus mortality may not be able to attend camp.
UP Camp prides itself on a history of
high accreditation and health inspection scores.
We recently passed our ACA accreditation with a 100% score
and our local Marion County sanitarian, Gina, said
"Evan's Creek's UP Camp is the picture
perfect organizational camp."
