Camp Fire River Bend | Camp Tannadoonah

COVID-related Guidelines and Policies

The past three years have been challenging for everyone. Now more than ever, camp is critical for the mental health and positive social development of our children and youth. With that in mind, we are committed to ensuring Camp Tannadoonah will provide our campers with the best camping experience possible. All of us – our campers, our staff, and our families  – must work together to ensure a safe, healthy, and successful camp for all of our participants.

While we have worked diligently to make adaptations to mitigate the risk of COVID-19 exposure in camp, it is important to note that there is no way for us to guarantee that COVID-19 will not be present. Our COVID policies for 2022 can be found here. The information regarding COVID-19 continues to change and evolve. We anticipate that we will have to adapt our policies throughout the summer as state guidelines change.

Here are some of the policies from 2022:

  • We rapid-tested all staff and campers weekly, upon arrival at camp.
  • We did not require the COVID-19 vaccination for campers. However, we encourage you to discuss the COVID-19 vaccination with your healthcare provider if your child is not already vaccinated.
  • We did not require masks.
  • We followed our typical (pre-COVID) daily schedule and activities.
