Although we are very excited to be returning to somewhat of a more traditional Camp Leif Ericson experience this summer, we also want to ensure that we are continuing to keep the safety of our campers and staff in mind.  Thus, we will be continuing to follow the recommendations of the American Camping Association, Y-USA, CDC, and local Health Department.  Our precautions for this summer will include:

  • Optional masks/face coverings for campers

  • Masks/face coverings for staff when in close proximity to campers

  • Encouraged vaccination for staff

  • Social distancing between groups of campers 

  • Frequent hand washing and sanitizing

  • Daily signs and symptoms screenings

  • Utilizing outdoor activities as much as possible 

We have made the decision to suspend our Overnight experience for our 8-15 year old campers for the summer of 2021.  This was a very difficult decision, but after examining our facilities and consulting with other Camp and Health Professionals, we feel that this is the appropriate precaution for our campers at this time.  We look forward to resuming our traditional Overnights in 2022 as the Covid situation continues to improve.  Campers will still get to experience a campfire and receive their years of attendance awards as they traditionally would during an afternoon ceremony.  We appreciate your understanding as we continually strive to balance the needs and safety of all our campers and staff.
