Camp Kaskitowa COVID-19 Statement – Updated 4/16/21

 

Dear Camp Kaskitowa Friends and Family,

We have missed our campers greatly over the past year. Due to the COVID-19 virus, we were unable to open up as normal in 2020. This year we look forward to being able to serve campers again, although it may not be in the same way as we have done the past 80 years before.

We love that spending time at Camp is important to you, your children, families, and groups. Camp Kaskitowa has always served as a welcome reprieve from our usual daily interactions with screens, work life, and modern daily distractions. We excel at getting you and your family outdoors in nature where you can experience God’s creation fully. The isolation and other challenges caused by COVID-19 are not healthy and we want to help as many as we can this year through camping ministry.

  • We will seek to use the camp this year as local, state, and federal guidelines allow. We will implement health and safety protocols as required to be able to reach campers and strengthen their relationships with Jesus at camp. Here are some measures we will implement as required:
  • We will monitor federal, state, and local guidelines for COVID-19
  • We will follow LARA Guidelines for Camp Operations during COVID-19 as well as work with direction from the local health department.
  • We will provide training for staff in safe and effective cleaning practices
  • We will prioritize outdoor activities.
  • All participants and staff are required to wear masks Camp Kaskitowa while indoors and during any outdoor activities if social distancing is not possible. Masks are not required to be worn when sleeping, eating, swimming, or during high intensity activity.
  • We will increase cleaning and disinfection of high-touch areas between activities.
  • We will encourage hand-washing and sanitizing between activities, meals, group activities, etc.

 

Summer Programs
We are working on our plans for 2021 currently and will be announcing some programs soon. Please contact us if you have any questions.

 

Churches and Rental Groups
Under current state regulations, we are able to legally and safely serve churches, life groups, church groups, and guest rentals with additional protection measures in place.

We would love to have your group come out for a day or weekend of fun experiencing God’s creation! Please contact us to reserve your dates now.

 

We will update this as guidelines and regulations change.

 

God Bless,

The Crew at Camp Kaskitowa
