COVID-19 Policy Update

**SRCC is excited to announce that more cabins and bunks have been made available for teen week this year! With this increased lodging capacity, we will be raising the number of campers who can attend teen week while also maintaining safety measures outlined in our COVID-19 policy. Specifically, we are now able to accommodate more campers while still maintaining half-capacity. These extra openings will go to those on the waiting list first; in the order they were signed up.**

 

                We are excited to be able to offer Youth Camps at Solid Rock Camp this summer. Camp is a great opportunity for individuals to get away from the distractions of daily life, enjoy the outdoors, and be challenged to grow spiritually in a safe and fun environment.

                We have put together policies, procedures and a program that will be fun and safe. As guidelines change over the course of the summer we will adjust accordingly. The main guideline is that we will operate at half-capacity. This will limit our camper number to 45 per week. We will register campers in the order that registration forms are received. Once we are at capacity additional campers will be placed on a waiting list.

Prayer

We have been praying for our campers, parents, counselors, and staff! Our prayer is that our campers will have a fun, healthy, safe, and life changing week!

Please join us in prayer as we endeavor to do our best in our preparations to help endure the health and safety of all those who attend this summer.

 

Health Screening

We will conduct health screenings of every camper and staff member upon their arrival to camp. For those who will be taking advantage of the offered transportation from Cedar Rapids, the screening will be held upon check-in before loading in van. The health screening will include temperature check and medical pre-screening form. Any camper or staff with an elevated temperature according to the CDC guidelines will not be admitted to camp. Staff health will be monitored daily.

 

Camper Illness

Should an illness occur, the affected individual will be isolated as much as possible, parent/guardian will be contacted, and they will be sent home. Communicable illnesses are an inherent risk of group gatherings and Solid Rock Christian Camp is not responsible for campers contracting illness.

 

Staff Training

Our staff training includes health and safety procedures. We will emphasize the critical role they play in the health and safety of our campers. Protocol will be developed for proper hand washing, reporting illness, and cleaning procedures.

 

Chapel

Campers will sit as a cabin group while in chapel.

 

Lodging

The cabin group is an important part of the camp dynamic. We will alternate camper sleeping arrangements (head to toe) to help protect our camper. Cabins will be limited to groups of 10

 

Cleaning and Procedures

Our staff will continue to clean and disinfect buildings daily. We will be disinfecting frequently touched surfaces multiple times a day and taking extra sanitary measures between camp sessions.

 

Hand Washing & Hygiene

We will continue to emphasize the importance of washing hands with soap and water. Hand washing is one of the most effective ways to prevent the spread of germs and viruses. Each cabin and major building will have hand sanitizer available. Campers will be encouraged to use them frequently throughout the day.

 

Food Service

This Summer we will take the extra precautions to ensure the safest possible environment in the dining hall. This will include staff distributing food to all campers, sanitizing tables before and after meals, and separating cabins during meal times. Everyone entering and the dining hall will need to either wash their hands or use hand sanitizer.

 

Final Thoughts

We will do what we can to follow these guidelines. We believe they are very reasonable and least invasive as they can be at this time. We know that not everyone will agree with them, but we believe they are very practical. We ask that if you do not agree with our COVID-19 policy that you do not send your kids to camp this year.
