COVID-19 POLICIES

COVID-19 CAMP GUIDELINES (Summer 2022)

The health and safety of our campers is our priority. We have been working hard to create guidelines for all who come to camp this summer. The American Camping Association engaged an expert panel coordinated by Environmental Health & Engineering Inc to create a practical guide and tool kit for reducing the risk at camp. We will continue to review all local, state, and federal guidelines. We go into this summer confident in our ability to provide a healthy, safe, fun, and fulfilling experience for WB Surf Camp participants. Below you will find information on what we are doing:

RESIDENTIAL CAMP GUIDELINES (NC Teen Overnight Surf Camps, Carolina Ocean Odyssey)

  • Campers must provide printed proof of a negative COVID-19 test, regardless of vaccination status, from within 3 days of arrival at camp to be checked-in. Low-risk behaviors are advised after testing and prior to camp.
  • Check in times will be assigned for each camp to promote social distancing. This information will be communicated in your family’s welcome email.
  • We are using a “one parent, one child” drop off policy. We ask that only one parent and their scheduled campers come to check in.
  • Check in will follow social distancing protocols with everyone standing at least 6ft apart while waiting to check in.
  • To ensure cleanliness of our accommodations, parents will say goodbye to campers after check-in and campers will be escorted to their room by camp staff. Before entering each room, all luggage will be wiped down and sanitized. No outside visitors will be allowed.
  • Mail will not be allowed this summer. Should you bring a package or letter with you on check in day we are happy to distribute that during the week.
  • Campers will sanitize hands before every meal and eat in camp groups.
  • When campers leave camp, they will always remain in their camp groups and will socially distance from all non-camp persons. When social distancing is not possible, masks will be available. Upon arrival to any vendor, campers will immediately sanitize their hands, as well as when departing.
  • Surf Camp Inc. staff will go through an intensive training on all policies and protocols. Check lists will be utilized to ensure cleaning and sanitizing is done correctly.
  • Should a camper exhibit symptoms of COVID-19, that camper will be given a mask and isolated immediately and parents will be notified. Parents will be expected to arrange pick up of the camper within 12- 24 hours. The local health department will be contacted for guidance and notification.
  • All other applicable country, state, and local guidelines in place at the time of program per your program’s location.
