Health & Safety

Updated August 15, 2022

Our highest priority is always to ensure a safe and healthy environment for our campers, guests, and staff.

In accordance with best practices and guidelines from the CDC, ACA, local health authorities,

and other medical professionals, we have created these COVID-19 protocols.

We will remain in step with best practices and adjust our protocols as necessary.

Our protocols contain many layers, which we feel will help provide safe spaces,

and still allow for a memorable experience at Lutherdale.

2022 SUMMER CAMP

COVID-19 Key Prevention Strategies

  • All summer campers must show proof of a negative COVID-19 test within 72-hours of arrival at camp.

  • Proof via an at-home rapid antigen test within 24 hours of arrival at camp is  acceptable.  A negative result must be shared at Lutherdale during check-in.

  • Daily temperature checks will be conducted throughout each session.

  • Campers will be assigned to villages of 12-32 campers.  All camp activities are done within their village with minimal interaction with other villages.

  • Masks will be recommended any time that campers need to interact with people outside of their cohort, when indoors, or when physical distancing is not possible.

  • Enhanced cleaning and disinfecting protocols will continue, including daily cleaning of cabins and high-touch surfaces.

TRAVEL MINISTRY

COVID-19 Key Prevention Strategies

  • Proof of vaccination against COVID-19 for all participants is required.  Please make sure to bring your vaccine card with you.  Lutherdale staff will make note of each individual's card upon boarding the motor coach.

  • Participants must be fully vaccinated, meaning the departure date must be at least 14 days after the second dose of a two-dose COVID-19 vaccine or at least 14 days after a single-dose COVID-19 vaccine.

  • Travel on the motor coach is confined space.  It is each participants personal decision to wear or not wear a mask.

  • It is suggested that each participant bring a mask and be prepared to use if needed.  As COVID-19 is constantly changing, it is always possible that you may need to wear a mask when we are indoors at a show or venue.
     

What is acceptable proof of vaccination?  Physical vaccination cards may be shown as well as copies or digital photos.  Photos on mobile phones are acceptable.  Proof of vaccination must accompany a valid driver's license or state-issued ID.
How long will this policy be in effect?  Lutherdale staff meet regularly and will review protocols once per month to ensure protocols are modified based on the most up-to-date CDC and local health department recommendations.
