Your child's safety remains our top priority, and we look forward to a healthy camp season! With COVID-19 infection rates falling, vaccinations widely available for anyone five and up, and nearly all of our staff vaccinated, we are taking steps towards getting back to normal.
Face coverings are optional for campers and staff. We encourage you to talk with your camper and create a plan that is consistent with the needs of your family.
Additional resources and staff have been allocated to maintain clean equipment, ropes course supplies, high contact points, and outdoor seating areas. Also, a commercial-grade, non-toxic, long-term sanitation product will be applied to every building within our campsites and in all rec spaces. Blocks of time will be built into the schedule several times a day for campers to wash hands and sanitize.
Illness screening will occur during registration and while camp is in session with daily wellness checks. Should a camper register a temperature of 100 degrees or display other symptoms of illness, the child will be removed from the campsite, and the nurse will contact the parent/ guardian. The medical staff may request an immediate pick-up of the camper. Should any camper or staff member within your child's session test positive for COVID-19, management will inform all families of the possible exposure.
All age groups will dine in the spacious campsite #4 dining hall this summer, and we will reinstate several "all-camp" activities that take place outside, like the Thursday night dance. Most of our existing activities take place outside and do not require distancing (archery, horseback riding, fishing, blobbing, paddling, live clue, etc.). Some events that are traditionally scheduled inside or in tight spaces will still be modified to avoid unnecessary risk. The schedule will feel "normal" to our seasoned campers, but work is being done behind the scenes to ensure facilities are clean and safe community health practices are followed.
Camp Allen will continue to monitor infection rates across Texas and CDC recommendations. This page will be updated if a policy is altered or new guidelines are created.
