COVID-19 Waiver

Health Screening Form

Dear Vista Family,

Opening Day is just around the corner and we could not be more excited! We feel very blessed to have camp again this summer. The thought of this place being empty over the summer was beyond upsetting to say the least. The overwhelming majority of our camp families have been so supportive and still plan to attend camp this summer. Thank you so much for your patience and your continued support! After much prayer, continued communication with our local camp community, and the guidance provided by the CDC and governor’s office, we feel that we can run our program in a healthy and fun manner this summer. As always, the health of our campers and our staff is our top priority. Based on the health protocols recommended by the Governor’s office and the CDC, we will continue to implement some changes in order to minimize risk at camp and to ensure that every child has the opportunity to attend camp this summer. We intend for the programs of Rio Vista & Sierra Vista to remain true to the one your camper loves and has come to expect, filled with fun, friends and tradition. Some of the changes this summer will include:

Pre-Camp COVID-19 Testing

To reduce exposure to Covid-19, we ask that every camper obtain a negative COVID-19 test 72 hours prior to arrival on camp. Parents will be able to choose the test that is readily avalible in your area. Please note that you must provide proof of the negative COVID-19 test with you to camp. Campers without a negative test will NOT be allowed into camp.

Pre-Camp Health Screening

To reduce exposure to Covid-19, we ask that every camper complete a 7-day pre camp screening. We also ask that you log your camper’s temperature for the seven days prior to camp (you will do this on the Health Screening Form that is attached). Campers must be fever free for seven days prior to arrival. Please note that you must bring the attached Health Screening Form and the COVID-19 Waiver with you to camp. Campers without both forms will NOT be allowed into camp.

Opening Day

We will be doing staggered drop-off times so that we are able to do temperature checks, health screenings, and lice checks. For drop-off times plesae refer to the charts above. Drop-off will be done in a drive-thru fashion. While we unload your child’s belongings, this will be your time for hugs and goodbyes. Our counselors will get them unpacked and settled in their cabin (parents are not allowed in cabins). If you have multiple age ranges please drop off at whatever time is more convenient to your family.

Closing Day

Drive thru pickup just like opening day. We will load your camper’s things in your car. No closing day ceremonies - all awards and war canoe races will be livestreamed prior to closing day. Please see closing day times listed in the charts above. If you have multiple age ranges please pick-up at whatever time is more convenient to your family.

Smaller Groups

Per the Governor’s office health protocols, we will operate daily activities within our division groups. Campers will be able to choose their own activity schedule but will now participate in those daily activities with campers ONLY from their age group/division, except where not possible, such as specialized activities including horseback and War Canoe for our two oldest divisions. During our evening programs, we will remain with our group to the extent possible. Activity sign-up will be limited somewhat this summer to account for the need of having to offer activities by age group/division rather than camp wide classes. However, we still plan to offer all our most popular offerings including: JFF, Horseback, Swim, Canoe/Kayak, Riflery, Archery, Sports, Fishing, Arts & Crafts, Animal Care and many more.

In the event a camper tests positive for COVID-19, the camper’s parents or guardian will need to pick up the camper within 8 hours. If a staff member tests positive, they will leave camp immediately. In both instances we will notify parents/guardians of those possibly exposed.

Our goal is to be as transparent as possible, so that you can make the most informed decision when it comes to sending your child to camp. Ultimately, the choice for your child to attend summer camp is a personal one. We love each and every one of you and can’t wait to see you all soon. If you have any questions or concerns, please respond to this e-mail or call us at (830) 367-5353.

With Love, The Hawkins Family
