We are closely monitoring the evolving CDC recommendations and any requirements at the state and local level related to summer camp operations and what they mean for our camp programs at Baltimore Woods Nature Center. The safety of our campers is always of paramount concern.
It may be necessary for Baltimore Woods Nature Center to implement certain safety precautions and protocols consistent with guidance offered from the Centers for Disease Control, the New York State Department of Health and other public health agencies. If necessary, these measures may include physical distancing, daily health screenings, temperature checks, masking and other measures designed to provide protection against COVID-19 transmission and infection.
Campers will be required to bring a mask with them if a situation should arise when they need to wear one (for example, if someone else in their group develops symptoms or tests positive during the camp week). Any camper wishing to wear a mask even when not required will be supported in doing so.
These multi-layered strategies have helped us keep our campers safe over the past two years. We will keep in close communication with registered camp families regarding evolving COVID-19 safety precautions.
While camp has been somewhat different since 2020, the core values of our camp remain the same – the benefits of playing outside for children cannot be overestimated, and the personal connection with nature they develop at camp will last their whole lives.
