Covid 19 Updates

Roadmap to Summer 2021 - last updated 3/25/2021



Camp Riva-Lake  has the unique opportunity to allow kids to both grow and have fun this coming summer as we continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic has caused many changes in our lives, but the need for us to be in a community at camp has not diminished; it has only increased. Camp brings laughter, face-to-face relationships, freedom from screens and homework, improved mental health, the perspective of living in a community, continued love for the outdoors, and so much more. We are committed to running a residential summer camp program in 2021.

Camp will look and feel different this year. But the value of being in an outdoor setting, among friends old and new, and participating in fun camp activities is needed more than ever during this challenging year.

Below are our current plans for operating this coming summer. All considerations are subject to change, modification, or removal based on current and relevant research.

Please read carefully, as we truly have “recreated the wheel” to provide the safest environment we can for your girls. We have followed the guidance of The American Camp Association, the CDC and the procedures of camps that had no Covid cases in 2020. We have capped our numbers at 2/3 of our usual capacity. We have already started a wait list for most sessions. If you feel that even one of the below precautions/protocols is not going to be possible for your family/child, then please contact Nonnie (404-626-6881)or Claudia (954-822-5807) and we will be happy to refund your deposit.

  1. We ask that our campers & staff implement a 10-day “quarantine” prior to camp where they do not risk unnecessary exposure to people outside their family, for example, attending a wedding or other large gathering.

  2. Your child will need to present a negative PCR test taken within 72 hrs of arrival.

  3. All those who are eligible for vaccination should demonstrate vaccination status.  Full vaccination is 2 weeks post second shot.

  4. We will not be offering airport transportation to allow our “bubble” to be created the moment your child hops out of your car into our care.

  5. You will select a timed arrival slot in 15 min. increments on opening and closing days that best suit your travel schedule.

  6. Parents/guardians will not leave the car as they drive through the usual “stations” of check in: Rock House, nurse & lice screening, uniform & re-tread pick up, and trunk drop off at Jr. or Sr. hill

  7. Masks will be worn by campers & staff at all times except: in cabin with small cohort, while swimming, while eating.

  8. Symptomatic campers will be tested at camp or at the CVS in town.

  9. If a camper tests positive, they will be quarantined, and we ask that you come to collect them ASAP - no longer than 12 hours after notification. We ask that you be “at the ready” for the duration of your child’s session or make arrangements to have a relative that can collect them if necessary.

  10. Please carefully read the parent handbook on the website for other changes this year, especially in regards to packages and packing list.  

  11. Near the end of the session, if we have had no cases, the girls will be able to relax their cohorts and have an experience that looks more like previous summers.

Work In Progress:

All of these considerations are subject to change. This is a snapshot of our thinking if we were to open camp next month, based on what we know now from science and best practices today. Modifications will be based on current and relevant scientific research, CDC, state, and local guidelines. Our community’s safety will be at the forefront of all decisions.
