HEALTH & SAFETY POLICIES

Click below or scroll down to read about specific topics. 

We know this might feel like a lot at first, but please understand our heart is to keep YOU and your fellow staff healthy and safe, as well as to follow our state mandates and help our host partners and parents feel safe in participating in camp this summer.

The better we all come alongside one another in these policies, the better our chance of running a full summer of camp, which means more kids get to experience the love of Jesus and don't have to experience the disappointment of a cancelled week of camp. And what could be better than that?!

Please don't hesitate to contact your directors with any questions you may have!

ARRIVAL AT CAMP

HEALTH SCREENINGS AND COVID-19 TESTING

  • We are requesting that all staff quarantine 10 days before arriving at camp by minimizing contact with others, being extra careful to use physical distancing and masks when around others. Please avoid large indoor crowds. Please be aware of your general health day to day during this time. (Pay attention to COVID-like symptoms.)

  • All staff must arrive at camp with a negative COVID-19 test received within 72 hours of check in.

  • Staff will receive a rapid COVID-19 test by a trained EL staff member during Orientation.

  • Day Camp On Location and Day Camp at Flying Horse staff will be tested every other week for COVID-19.

  • Staff will receive daily health screenings while at camp. 

MASKS

STAFF 

  • According to state and local mandates, staff will be required to wear a mask whenever they are indoors, except when eating or sleeping.

  • Staff will not be required to wear a mask when they are outdoors.

  • When traveling to other states or counties with less restrictive guidelines, Eagle Lake staff will maintain compliance with guidelines established by the state of Colorado (or whatever state we’re in with the highest levels of restrictions; we are anticipating Colorado’s guidelines will be most restrictive.)

  • No visitors will be allowed on property.

COHORTS

VACCINES

  • Vaccines are now available for all age groups. If you would like to receive a Pfizer vaccine through Colorado Children's Hospital as an Eagle Lake Employee, please contact your director for more information.
