After reviewing recommendations from the State of Missouri, ACA, and collaborating with our camp
directors and local health department, Camp Galilee has developed a plan for responding to COVID-19.
This plan is subject to change as we learn more information about COVID-19 and receive more guidance
from other professionals.
We have broken down our policies into Pre-arrival and at Camp. Our COVID-19 waiver outlines what we
expect families to understand and acknowledge prior to their child’s attendance at Galilee for the summer
Prior to Arrival at Camp
* All staff will have agreed to the same Pre-camp requirements as our families.
* During staff training our summer staff will be learning and practicing the same physical distancing and sanitation techniques that will be utilized during every camp session.
Taking into consideration the spontaneous nature of campers, the physical spaces at camp, and specific
activity requirements, we don’t believe that social distancing, as we have come to know it in America, is
possible at camp. However, we are prepared to encourage, teach, and ensure greater physical distancing
whenever it is appropriate.
During activities that don’t allow for greater physical distance between campers and staff, everyone will
be asked to wear a covering over their nose and mouth.
While camp offers a well equipped and modern health lodge with multiple rooms for isolating sick
campers, camp is not prepared to house campers or staff who show symptoms of COVID-19. Therefore,
This policy has been adapted from Cub Creek Science Camp Inc.
The Camp Galilee blog exists to be a helpful resource to alumni as well as future campers and their parents.
