COVID 19 PROTOCOLS

 

 

Our Steps for Your Safety:   

Guidance: Lake Geneva Camps and Conferences takes its guidance from our exceptional partners in the healthcare industry. Our Nurses and Doctors are helping us to maintain proven methods of limiting the spread of the virus. We also take into account and share the guidance offered by the Centers for Disease Control or CDC.   

Vaccinations: The CDC states, “COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective, and widely accessible in the United States.” We at camp encourage you to seek the advice of your physician when considering receiving the vaccine.   

Keeping it Clean: We take great care to ensure our guests and campers enter clean rooms regardless of the current crisis. Please watch our video included in our updates with our Housekeeping Manager, Lydia Sanchez, where she walks through our cleaning process. We utilize the best cleaning practices and products for our guests’ health. Hand sanitizer and soap dispensers have been installed around the property to empower our guests and campers to reduce viral transmission. 

Health Screenings: We encourage our guests and campers to self-screen prior to arrival at camp (Health Screening Link Here). If you cannot answer “no” to each question, we would ask you to stay home and not come to camp. Employees will self-screen daily. 

Social distancing: We are putting limitations on the number of individuals in all camp spaces, mitigating large groups, and limiting the number of campers in each housing area during our programs. We will ensure that group leaders direct their groups to practice social distancing and eliminate cross-camp interactions. We also encourage social distancing while indoors. 

Facemasks: We encourage each guest and camper to self-determine their need for masking based on their comfort level. We do not provide facemasks and ask that campers and leaders PLEASE BRING FACE COVERINGS with them for personal use (enough for their entire stay). 

Limiting exposure: We will be limiting the number of non-program staff, visitors, and vendors on our properties during camp to help limit exposure to illness. 

Food Service Modifications: We are taking steps to equip you in limiting exposure to illness. Each dining facility contains antibacterial dispensers and gloves for guests to use. We have also spaced our tables further apart to help maintain distance between campers. We encourage groups to use sanitation resources provided to minimize transfer. 

Other Measures: Our medical advisors have recommended having people spaced appropriately in their lodging to achieve a 6-foot separation between faces while sleeping. Within your group, you can choose how you would like to handle the spacing of group members while indoors in your exclusive meeting space and whether masks are required (we will try to keep you updated on any current local mandates). 

 

FAQ:

Are vaccines required to come to camp?

Vaccines are not required to come to camp. However, the CDC states, “COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective, and widely accessible in the United States.” We at camp encourage you to seek the advice of your physician when considering receiving the vaccine.

 

What screening should we do before coming to camp? Please have your camper, family, or leaders self-screen with the linked health assessment form before coming to camp.

 

Are masks required on the property? Masking is not required on the property but is encouraged as one step that campers and guests can take to limit their exposure to the COVID-19 Virus.

 

Are you limiting camp access for outside visitors?

We will be limiting the number of non-program staff, visitors, and vendors on our properties during camp to help limit exposure to illness.

Have you made Food Service changes to increase safety?

Yes, we have taken steps to limit exposure to our guests and campers by adjusting our service practices. Our serving team is equipped with masks and sanitary procedures to ensure every meal is safe for campers and guests. In the buffet, we provide new gloves for each person going through the line to prevent touching shared surfaces. We have also spaced our tables further apart to help maintain distance between campers. 

Are there any other measures being taken for our safety?

Our medical experts have recommended having people spaced appropriately in their lodging to achieve a 6-foot separation between

faces while sleeping. Our programs will have campers sleeping head to foot within our cabins. Within your own group, you can choose how you would like to handle the spacing of group members while indoors in your exclusive meeting space and whether masks are required (we will try to keep you updated on any current local mandates).

Are these practices going to change?

COVID-19 is considered a novel virus because there is much about the disease that is still unknown. Lake Geneva Camps and Conferences is committed to maintaining the most effective known practices based on current information. Therefore, our procedures may change and will always be driven by a desire to make your stay with us safe, healthy, and comfortable.
