Considerations & Best Practices When Running Family Camp

As we enter the summer season, many camps are grappling with the difficult decision to not run traditional camp this summer. Instead, some have decided to run family camp due to the fact that families have already been quarantined and exposed to each other. Therefore, we want to provide a space for camp professionals to hear more and learn about the specific risk management considerations for this type of programming. Some questions we will answer are:
  • What will family camp look like in this ever changing and difficult time?
  • What preparations are necessary to safely manage families at camp?
  • What should we be communicating to parents/guardians before they arrive at camp? 
  • How can we support and empower staff to enforce rules during family camp?
