COVID-19 Update Summer 2022

Dear parents and campers of Westview, 

We are all so excited to have all of you back out at Westview again this year! Last year, in order to have camp safely during the COVID pandemic, we created policies based on guidelines put out by the American Camping Association (ACA), Christian Camping Association (CCA), the CDC and the Virginia Department of Health. This year, along with looking at what our local school systems are doing, we will continue to prioritize safety to make sure our staff and campers have an incredible summer in God's beautiful creation, here at Westview. All policies are subject to change as the Virginia health guidelines change and evolve. Here is some of what we will be continuing this summer...

  • Continuing a health screen at camper check- in that includes a temperature check as well as COVID specific questions. Due to an overwhelming positive response, we will continue our " drive through" model of check- in. 

  • Campers will need to present at check- in one of the following: 

    • Vaccination card or picture of vaccination card​

    • OR a negative test taken within 72 hours of arrival

    • OR the camper can isolate for 5 days prior to camp

  • Continuing daily temperature checks before SonRise each morning 

  • Creating age groups cohorts; Mini- camp and 7-11 year old Resident Campers will eat on one side of the dining hall, while our Adventure Camp and 12-14 year old Resident campers will eat on the other side. 

  • Sanitizing surfaces and frequent cleaning of all surfaces that campers use: tables, chairs and doors. 

  • Focusing on hand hygiene and highlighting the need for regular hand washing. 

  • Face masks will be optional for campers. Campers will need to provide their own masks if desired. 

We were so happy to make camp happen in 2021, and we want to make 2022 even better. Looking forward to seeing all of our campers this summer!
