Camp & COVID-19


We know that as we draw closer to camp, everyone is asking, “What will Camp Idlewild look like this summer?” This is a question that our team is working diligently to answer. The reality is that camp will look different, and that is okay. However, the things that are the most foundational to camp will still be there.


We will continue to serve your student by providing the camp experience that you expect from us, one designed with students in mind and Jesus at the center of it. Our desire is for your student to leave camp transformed and growing in a deeper relationship with Christ and with each other. Our team is excited and expectant of what the Lord is going to do this summer at Camp Idlewild.


Here are a few things to help you anticipate what camp will look like:


At a minimum, we will be performing the following precautions before to leaving for camp:

  • We will train our staff on necessary preventative health and safety protocols, as well as the plan for handling symptoms or exposure identified at camp.
  • We will limit the capacity of attendance at camp from previous years in an effort to allow for more social distancing when possible.
  • We will conduct temperature checks upon arrival for registration.
  • We will require each student to complete a COVID-19 Questionnaire indicating whether or not they are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or been exposed to someone with COVID-19.


At a minimum, we will be performing the following precautions once we arrive at camp:

  • We will be enlisting licensed medical professionals to assist onsite with all health related services and screenings.
  • We will be reorienting the food serving process from buffet style service to cafeteria style service (individualized meals).
  • We will provide more available outdoor seating during meals.
  • We will provide necessary supplies for common/shared spaces including but not limited to hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes, disinfectant cleaner, etc.
  • We will perform routine cleaning on a daily basis.
  • We will make adjustments to our schedule and programming in an effort to ensure a safe and healthy camp environment.
  • We will ask all to maintain social distancing whenever possible.
  • We will perform daily temperature checks on camp members, requiring anyone not feeling well to seek medical attention and be socially isolated, if becoming ill.
  • We will provide the opportunity to families for a student to receive a rapid COVID-19 Test if they possess COVID-19 symptoms.
  • We will conduct contact tracing and additional cleaning if a student or leader tests positive for COVID-19 while at camp.
