COVID-related Guidelines and Policies


This has been a challenging year 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. In fact, we are operating as if the virus will enter camp. We intend to run our program because we believe we can care for campers and staff if they do contract COVID-19, and that we can isolate and stop the virus from spreading if it does enter camp.

We have developed the Camp Tannadoonah COVID-19 Policies and Guidelines linked below to make the 2021 summer camp experience as safe as possible for everyone who attends. 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.
