Dear friends of Camp Walter Scott,

We are excited to announce that we will be holding summer programs at Camp Walter Scott this year! However, in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, camps will look and feel a little different this summer in order to ensure the highest level of safety for all our camp guests. We are following guidelines, advice, and requirements from the Illinois Department of Public Health and other experts; therefore, we have adopted a number of policies and procedures to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

Some of these changes include maintaining campers together in cohorts throughout the camping program, limiting the number of people indoors together, social distancing, masks requirements for campers when indoors or when social distancing is not possible, requiring proof of a recent negative COVID test, monitoring for symptoms during camp, and stringent cleaning procedures among others. You can read the full Camp Walter Scott COVID19 Policies and Procedures here.

Additionally, most of our camps will be shortened from a full week down to 3 or 4 days. We are also limiting the number of campers who can attend each camp; however, we are also adding an extra Junior High and High School camp to accommodate more campers. We understand that is a deviation from our usual camp structure but doing so will help us ensure that we can effectively accommodate for these newly adopted protocols and procedures.

The health and safety of all our guests is tremendously important to us. We are confident that through these new changes, we can reduce the threat from COVID-19 and  have a healthy camp program this summer. Nonetheless, it is important to know that while we can reduce it, the risk of contagion cannot be completely eliminated. We will continue sharing information

Registration will be available online very soon. As announced earlier, there will be no late fee or cancellation fees for cancellations or changes due to COVID-19. And as always, you can contact Pastor Eli ([email protected]) or our Camp Host, Laura ([email protected]) with any questions.

We are tremendously grateful for your patience, understanding, and support.

Sincerely,

Pastor Eli Rolón Jeong, Associate Regional Minister

Laura Williams, Camp Walter Scott Host
