COVID-19 Update

Dear Parents and Campers,

 

We are so excited to have camp in 2021!  We know it will be a fantastic summer, but there are some guidelines Westview has been working on that we will need to follow this summer.  Please keep in mind that we will follow all of the latest guidelines put out by the governors’ office, and that the guidelines may change leading up to summer.  Here are the largest changes we are currently implementing:

 

The “Cohort” Model

           All campers will spend the entire week with their cabin and up to 1 other cabin.  These groups are called “cohorts.”

 

          Cohorts will be allowed to interact internally without the need for masks.

 

          When a cohort is near anyone outside of their “cohort” they will be required to wear a mask and maintain 6 feet of social                     distance whenever possible.

 

          Camp activities will be conducted as a “cohort” group throughout the week.

 

Increased Health Screening

         

          Daily health screenings for fever, sore throat, cough, diarrhea, vomiting, stomachache, and severe headache.

           

          Parents will be notified promptly if their child has any symptoms.  This summer we are asking all parents to have a plan to                  pick up their child if symptoms should present during camp.  We are not allowing overnight stays for sick campers in 2021 as            an extra precaution.

 

Streamlined check-in

          Currently Westview plans on having a drive-through check-in and pick-up that reduces contact between campers and                          multiple families.

 

          Our staff will assist with luggage, bunk set-up, etc., but at this time we ask that parents remain with their vehicles during                    drop- off and pick-up times.

 

 

Thank you for understanding as we navigate these challenges.  Our priority is to the health and safety of our campers, staff, and families.  We are excited to see all of our campers once again this summer!

 

God Bless,

Bobby Boyd
