covid-19 updates

guiding assumptions

  • We can and will be allowed to operate safely.
  • Our camp community will be fully vaccinated and boosted for COVID-19 (requirement for all eligible individuals).
  • Testing will be an important part of our strategy to diagnose and prevent transmission of COVID-19.
  • Camp will be open, including camper field trips out of camp and specialists in camp
  • COVID-19 is likely to present itself at camp.
  • Low positivity and hospitalization rates in our communities. No new significant variant emerges.

vaccination requirements

The National Ramah Commission Medical Committee and Camp Ramah in Wisconsin/Ramah Day Camp Medical Committee have a long established history of robust vaccination requirements. These vaccination requirements have been developed and are regularly reviewed based on the latest recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP).

In support of our commitment to the health and safety for all members of our community, all COVID-19 vaccine-eligible campers (those greater than 5 years of age) and staff members must complete the primary COVID-19 vaccination series and receive a booster vaccine (campers greater than 12 years of age) prior to the beginning of summer camp season.

Any vaccine authorized for use in the U.S. (currently Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson) is acceptable.

daily camp activities

  • Mask wearing will be optional for staff and campers.
  • Campers will participate in activities primarily outside, but also may be inside as well.

covid-19 diagnosis

  • Campers experiencing COVID 19 symptoms will report to camp Infirmary (Marp).
  • Individuals who are experiencing multiple COVID 19 symptoms will be isolated and parents must pick them up.
  • Individuals who test positive must quarantine for a minimum of 5 days. They can return to camp after a negative antigen test.

As medical guidance continues to evolve, additional details about triage and treatment of COVID-19 positive cases will be shared during the next Countdown to Camp webinar.
