Everything you need to know about camp!
Covid-19 has drastically altered the way we are doing many things this year. We are slowly but surely working through the details of camp, and we ask for your patience as we define the process. As we have answers we will post them here, so check back often!
Our staff will be trained on recognizing and monitoring for symptoms of Covid-19 and other communicable diseases, things such as coughing, shortness of breath, etc. They will also be trained on increased cleaning and disinfecting measures for both their cabins and general camp spaces and equipment. Finally, they will be training on increased hygiene for themselves and campers (hand sanitizer before and after each activity, washing hands before eating, daily showers, properly covering sneezes or coughs, avoiding touching their faces, etc.)
Yes! You will be required to complete an at home pre-screening and temperature checks before campers get to camp. We will be taking camper temperatures daily and we need your help in getting them used to the process before they arrive at camp. Also, you will need to sign a new release form for your camper.
In our efforts to provide as safe an environment as possible for our campers and staff during Horse Camps, we also want to ensure their contact with other groups at NLR is limited.
The CDC has recommended that camps treat cabins as "families" throughout the program and work to limit exposure to a defined group of people. Since Horse Camps are limited to a max of 20 campers they will be operating as their own “cohort” based on ACA guidelines. They will only interact within their cohort.
