Ensuring safe fall programs will require a partnership among all of us. Our top priority is to keep our participants, families, and staff safe. In light of our current reality, we have elevated our medical protocols and practices using recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), American Camp Association (ACA), North Carolina State Health and Human Services, Pamlico County Health Department, and Wake County Health Department and with guidance from our Camp Medical Advisory Committee. As always, we will continue to monitor guidance from the CDC and the State of North Carolina. We recognize that COVID-19 guidelines will change as the landscape changes, and will adapt our programming and protocols accordingly.  

Please complete the 14 Day Health Assessment and Temperature Form below prior to arrival.

Health Assessment and Temperature Form

Per state recommendations, all persons age 5 and older are required to wear face masks when they are unable to maintain a 6-foot distance from others and while in shared spaces outside of the cabin. We recognize that there will be questions surrounding face coverings and how they are feasible in the day-to-day life of Camp. We want to assure you that staff will provide guidance throughout the weekend. Please note that there are some exceptions to this order. If you or your family members meet these criteria, please communicate with the Camp Director upon arrival. 

Our program has been designed in accordance to state and local health regulations, CDC recommendations, and the ACA’s field guide for delivering overnight camps in the reality of COVID-19. As such, we will adhere to all state and local health department guidelines that are in place during programs including practicing social distancing, healthy hand hygiene practices and increased cleaning and sanitation protocols. We have extensive cleaning protocols both between and during sessions and provide hand sanitizer in the cabins and around Camp. That said, please feel free to bring any of your own cleaning supplies to use during your time with us.

If, after your time at Camp, you test positive for COVID-19 or are quarantined, please email Risk@YMCATriangle.org or call 919-719-9690.
