  • We encourage all eligible staff and campers to get the COVID-19 vaccination and stay up to date with their health care.
  • Communicate plans with Stokes County Health Department.  
  1. Monitoring Campers and Staff
  • Campers, during the first day of camp, will meet nurses for a general wellness screening/lice check. 
  • Isolate anyone with symptoms and provide care until pick up. We request pick up be within 3 hours of notification from Camp Staff. Disinfect area after they are taken home according to CDC guidelines.
