Masks & Testing
Does my child need to wear a mask at camp?
Whenever we are indoors at Camp all campers and staff will be required to wear a mask. The exceptions to this will be during meal times for all campers and sleep times for overnight campers. All campers, regardless of vaccination status, will be required to wear masks indoors.
When campers are outside, the majority of our time, campers will not be required to wear masks provided appropriate social distancing is in place.
Will a negative test be required before arrival?
No, a negative test is not required.
Will I receive a refund if my child is sick/tests positive?
Yes, if you child does not attend the program due to being in quarantine due to a positive test or is experiencing Covid-19 like symptoms prior to arrival please contact the office and we will issue a refund.
Beaver Cross has been operating throughout the COVID 19 pandemic with retreats, after school programs, youth groups, and events! We are experienced in running fun and safe programs that will not make these requirements the focus of your child's time at camp!
How many campers will be in a cabin?
Traditionally, our Beaver Cross cabins can hold up to 14 campers. Due to the pandemic, we are reducing capacity to only 10 campers per cabin.
Do campers need to sleep in a mask?
No. No sleeping or showering with a mask will be required when indoors.
Will the food be served 'buffet' style or 'family' style?
All food will be served buffet style by our dining team. Campers will only come into contact with their own plate as all food will be behind a plexiglass screen. Food options and choices will remain the same as previous years.
How will seating work?
Due to the colder weather, meals will be moved inside our spacious Welcome Center. Campers will be spaced as best as possible and masks will not be required when seated..
As a New York State licensed camp program we will follow all guidelines provided by the State to keep everyone safe and healthy.
Cleaning & Sanitizing
How often are surfaces cleaned around camp?
Each space will be sanitized before being used by another group of campers. For sports, that would be the sanitizing of shared equipment. For crafts, that would be the sanitizing of tables and shared equipment.
Bathrooms will be cleaned and sanitized periodically throughout the day and after usage of each group of campers.
Will hand sanitizer be available around camp?
Yes! Each activity area will have a hand sanitizing station that will be available to all campers.
