We are taking the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic very seriously. We understand the gravity of the illness, and the potential threat that it poses both to campers and staff. Nevertheless, we are excited to resume camp programming this summer! We are committed to doing everything in our power to protect all those who visit camp, and we are excited for summer and all that it will hold.
Below you will find helpful information about our response to the spread of this illness, as well as additional third party information to which we are adhering.
Policies on Camp:
Each guest/guest family will be required to have this COVID-19 Guest Practices form signed in order to participate at any program
We have a daily cleaning regimen of all high-touch, public surfaces. Using industrial strength products HALT and NABC Concentrate 1 cleared for anti-viral management, we will comply with all State and Department of Health standards to reduce illness transmission. In accordance with good practice, we are also encouraging frequent and thorough hand-washing by all on-site.
Additionally, we are fully adhering to the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph’s directives regarding the celebration of Holy Mass. More information can be found here.
Finally, we encourage all of our guests and program participants to be prudent! Please remain home if you are ill, in any way. While we recognize it would be a sacrifice to miss time spent heres, we also desire to limit exposure of staff and other guests to illness, be it COVID-19 or any other virus.
Camp Fee Assurance Policy:
In an effort to reassure and calm the fears surrounding registration for camp programming in the midst of this ongoing situation, we are instituting a Camp Fee Assurance Policy for our summer programs. While our typical registration protocols include a non-refundable deposit, we are temporarily freezing these procedures and putting this Assurance Policy in place. This will mean that all deposits will be refundable up to the beginning of a camp program, whether due to personal hesitation and fear over public exposure OR due to the suspension of all camp programming.
As it stands, we encourage you to register for camp, pay the deposit or fees in full, and guarantee your spot, as space is limited. Nevertheless, you can rest easy knowing that should the situation worsen, your payment is fully refundable.
Finally, we are committed to maintaining transparency and open communication with clients, guests, and everyone in the KCSJ Camps family. Should COVID-19 exposure occur on camp, notification will be made in a swift and clear method to all those potentially affected. In a reciprocal manner, if you or anyone you know has visited camp and subsequently been tested positive for COVID-19, we ask that you immediately notify camp staff by or email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
