2022 COVID-19 FAQ
Last Updated: 4/26/2022
The safety of our participants is always our first priority. We will continue to actively monitor CDC, university, and state requirements that could affect the final rules and guidelines. Our COVID-19 policy has been updated and will continue to be adjusted if warranted. We remain optimistic that conditions will continue to improve and we will have a fantastic summer 2022!
What do I need to know?
Student participants must be fully vaccinated or show proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test.
To be considered fully vaccinated, the participants must have completed the initial vaccine series at least two weeks before arriving at camp. It is highly recommended that vaccinated participants also receive the booster dose if eligible. Proof of vaccination can be included with your registration form or submitted upon arrival to campus.
PCR tests must be taken no earlier than 72 hours before the start of camp. Proof of negative PCR test must be presented upon arrival to campus.
Teacher attendees, SCA staff, clinicians and counselors will be required to be fully vaccinated.
All Camp Participants will be required to take an at-home COVID-19 Rapid Test before departing for campus the day of check-in. Anyone who has a positive result from a rapid test or is displaying symptoms should not travel to campus and notify us promptly for further instructions .
The COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Test is a simple at-home test that is easily administered. It can be purchased over-the-counter at local retailers like Walgreens, Sam's Club, Walmart, CVS or ordered free of charge from Covid.gov/tests. The tests are generally a nasal swab that is swiped inside the nostrils and then inserted into a provided test card or tube. Results appear in 10 to 15 minutes. Our goal is to alleviate the spread of COVID-19 to camp participant and staff by ensuring that rapid antigen tests are taken by all participants and results obtained before traveling to campus. There will be instructions at a later time on how test information will be reported at check-in. We want to have a safe and healthy week and we are depending on everyone to do their part.
What could additional protocols look like during the camp week?
Should conditions, university, and state guidelines require it, indoor masking for all participants could be instituted.
If the participant is showing any symptoms of COVID-19 or is considered a close contact of someone with a positive result, there would be a mask requirement for that individual at all times.
If an individual should show symptoms, a PCR test will be required. The participant or family will be responsible for the cost of testing.
If the test produces a positive result, the participant will be placed in a covid restricted area and must be picked up to go home within 12 hours of the positive test.
Prior to May 15th, cancellation for any reason will receive a full tuition refund.
After May 15th, cancellation will receive a refund of tuition payment minus $150 deposit.
Cancellation due to a verified COVID-19 illness or proof of primary contact the week prior to the start of the camp you are attending will be reviewed for refund with written request and documentation.
