Announcement

Coronavirus Update

    UPDATE      as of Mon., May 3, 10 a.m.

As we monitor local and national conditions, camper health and safety continues to be our number one priority. We have taken steps to limit camper capacity and provide a clean and safe camp facility. Campers will be grouped together for the week into smaller cohorts as they participate in exciting activities while still benefiting from social distancing. Vulnerable persons are encouraged to exercise personal responsibility while at camp this summer. Camper face mask use will be optional but is still encouraged where social distancing is not possible. 

 

We realize there is a great deal of concern right now about the coronavirus; you likely have questions about Teen Extreme and efforts to manage it. We want you to be assured that the health of our campers and staff is our highest priority.

No. We are planning to make the scheduled camp programs available for this summer. We will continue to monitor the situation and will update here as needed.
We will continue to consult with our local health department and monitor federal and state guidelines. As conditions dictate, we will take appropriate preventative measures including heightened disinfecting and sanitary procedures to promote a healthy environment on our campus.
We do ask that all potential campers be symptom-free of fever and respiratory illness for at least twenty-four hours before arriving at camp. Thank you for working with us to ensure the health of our campers, staff, and community. We look forward to seeing you this summer.

Camp fees for any coronavirus (COVID-19) related cancellation will be refunded upon request. If you have other questions, please contact us. Our staff is eager to help you during this time.

View the steps we are taking to make sure your campers have a fun, exciting, and safe experience.

Daily COVID Screening

Our camp staff is working to develop proper screening techniques for campers and staff.

Before You Arrive

Fourteen days before arrival, parents and sponsors should begin monitoring anyone who will be attending camp for symptoms of COVID-19.

  • Fever of 100.4℉ or greater
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath
  • Muscle aches
  • Loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat

Determine if anyone has traveled nationally or internationally in the last two weeks.

Determine if anyone has been in close contact with a person who has been diagnosed with, tested for, or quarantined as a result of COVID-19.

When You Arrive at Check-In

During check-in, your camper will go through a health screening process.

To help protect our guests and staff, check-in will be as contactless as possible.

This screening will include:

  • Temperature check
  • Questionnaire (to ensure no risk or exposure has occurred)

Screening will be conducted by trained camp staff.

Once each camper is screened, he will received a dated sticker indicating screening has been completed.

While at Camp

Daily screening for all campers and sponsors will be conducted in the Residence Halls by team leaders beginning at 7:30 a.m.

This screening will include:

  • Temperature check
  • COVID symptoms evaluation

Once each camper is screened, he will received a day colored sticker indicating screening has been complete.

If a camper shows symptoms of COVID-19, an isolation room will be provided for the camper.

Teen Extreme’s camp nurse will discuss further clinical evaluation if needed.

Frequent Cleaning and Handwashing

Our cleaning procedures are in adherence to local health department advisement, and we will continue with the directed protocol and increased cleanliness of high-traffic and touch points throughout each day.

Facility Cleaning Care

  • CDC-approved protocols have been implemented for the cleaning and maintaining of camp facilities.
  • Frequent-touch points will receive additional attention from CDC-approved disinfectants.
  • A certified remediation team is available to provide deep disinfecting services as needed.

What Your Camper Can Do

  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Especially after nose-blowing, sneezing, going to the bathroom, and before eating or preparing food.

  • Use hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
  • Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.

    Cover the hands entirely and rub them together until they feel dry.

  • Avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Disinfect pens or any small things that are frequently used.

Based on current conditions, we will be implementing appropriate social distancing guidelines throughout all camp areas.

Face masks will be worn where it is not possible to practice social distancing.
