For summer 2021, Camp Lookout will be using the cohort style of camping to help mitigate the risk of COVID-19 spread. Camper groups from the same church will be placed in cabins, and cabin groups will do work projects and activities together. Cabin groups will work together to choose their groups activities. Please note that there are more activities than can possibly be completed in a session of camp. Time, availability, weather, and COVID restrictions are all factors affecting the actual camp activity experience.
Sessions Begin and End:
Junior High Service Week (Adults) begins Monday 10:00 a.m. and ends Friday 10:00 a.m.
Camp Lookout is dedicated to continuing the quality program campers and parents have come to expect and experience each summer. COVID-19 protocols will change the way we run our day-to-day camping program. These changes will help us limit and hopefully eliminate exposure to COVID-19 at Camp Lookout. In the event of severe restrictions and/or elevated risks to campers and staff due to COVID-19, cancellation of some or all weeks is a possibility. The safety and well-being of every camper and staff is our top priority.
Brief Summary of Precautions:
• Pre-Camp Information and Health Screening – Each camper and staff will receive updated information on established protocols to help mitigate COVID-19 at Camp Lookout as well as pre-screening surveys prior to on-site health screening at check-in. Out of an abundance of care and precaution, campers with pre-existing conditions for complications with COVID-19 as defined by the CDC are strongly discouraged from attending camp this summer.
• Cohort groups – Each cabin will function as a group for the week. They will eat meals together, participate in activities as a group, enjoy bible study and worship as a small group, and only interact with other groups while physically separated by no less than 6 feet.
• Other Proactive Mitigating Factors – Camp capacity has been reduced by 50%. Campers and staff will wear face masks in space shared by other cabin groups, when activities require non-avoidable close contact, and during transition times throughout the day. Each of our programs have been modified to comply with CDC, state/local, and Holston Conference guidelines.
• What happens in the event of possible COVID-19 exposure – If a camper or staff member develops COVID-19 symptoms, a parent/guardian will immediately be contacted, and they will be sent home. In the event of a COVID-19 positive camper or staff member, we will notify those exposed and actively participate in health department contact tracing.
• Daily cleaning – We will increase our cleaning protocols so that each building is cleaned daily, and necessary equipment is cleaned after each use.
