Camp Naru  COVID-19 Protocols

Updated as of October 2022

Prior to arrival at camp, staff and campers will be fully vaccinated with proof of vaccine.  

  • It will be expected that all campers and staff are monitoring symptoms at least ten (10) days prior to the beginning of camp.
  • It is suggested that families limit the amount of interaction with others – outside the immediate household – prior to arriving at camp.
  • Strongly encourage mask wearing in large gatherings prior to camp.


During camp operations – the expectation is as follows:

  • Daily morning temperature and COVID-19 symptom check – executed by the camp medical officer (CMO) and/or counselor.  Any camper or staff member experiencing COVID-19 symptoms will be isolated, undergo testing, and remain isolated pending test results. 
  • Participants will refrain from sharing personal items.
  • Campers will wash/sanitize their hands before all meals and throughout the day.


Positive Test Result Protocol

  • If a camper or staff member has two (2) positive COVID-19 rapid test results, that individual will:
    • Be temporarily placed in an isolation unit on campgrounds, where they will not come into contact with other campers or staff members
    • The CMO will contact the parent/guardian of the participant to inform them and determine an appropriate pick-up time
      • Parents/guardians are responsible for the immediate and safe collection of their camper
      • Staff members will be responsible for their departure from camp.
    • Their personal items will be collected from their cabin and brought to the camper or staff member
    • The participants’ entire cabin group – camper and counselor – will then undergo rapid testing
    • An electronic message regarding the positive case will be sent to the families of everyone in that cabin group


COVID-19 Refunds

Prior to Camp

  • We offer the opportunity for any camper that is diagnosed as positive before camp, to rapid test negative and report to camp at any point during the week. However, no partial refunds will be designated for this circumstance.

During Camp

  • We do not offer any refunds for campers that are in attendance at camp and are diagnosed with COVID-19. Unfortunately, camp pays the full cost of each camper upfront – before camp begins – and does not receive any benefit of less participants.
