Camp will undoubtedly look different in 2021—and that’s okay! Our traditions, programs, and camp spirit can still continue even if it does not look like our previous summers. We have our sights firmly set on summer 2021 and we are that much closer to it now that we can finally present our COVID resources.
CAmp HOrizons 2021 COVID-19 Resources
Our team of full time Directors, Program Coordinators, Customer Service Representatives, Food & Beverage team members, and Maintenance & Housekeeping staff continue to improve our practices in preparation to serve our campers and local families and have all provided their expertise in the final version of our Action Plan. Our program planning is also impacted by a variety of external resources, including:
- The Virginia Governor’s office, which on February 24th released Guidelines for All Business Sectors, including summer camps
- The American Camp Association, who we have been accredited by for nearly 40 years and which has created a field guide for best practices within the summer camp industry
- The Center for Disease Control, whose guidelines we’ve been following and will continue to adhere to this summer
With the Governor’s support, the ACA resources available to us, and continued adherence to CDC guidelines, we feel confident in our ability to offer a safe and exciting program for the 2021 summer season. Following months of thoughtful planning and collaboration we are proud to share our plans for operation this summer. We ask all currently enrolled and potential families to review the Action Plan thoroughly to best understand the protocols we are executing that allow us to run a safe and responsible summer camp program. Please note, should any relevant guidelines change from the ACA, CDC, or The Virginia Department of Health, we will update our Action Plan as needed.
The Camper Guide functions as a resource for our campers (new and veteran) to best understand what to expect during their time at camp this summer. The Camper Guide should be reviewed in conjunction with the full Camp Horizons 2021 COVID-19 Action Plan.
Finally, our team put together a condensed FAQ which is a helpful tool to reference after reviewing the full 2021 Action Plan.
