Daily Health Screening: Camp FA staff will conduct daily health screenings of campers each morning before they exit their vehicle.
Families who are not using public modes of transportation while traveling will not be required to quarantine before attending Camp FA.
Families who are using public modes of transportation (airplane, metro, bus, train, etc) are asked to consult with Nurse Carmen Mims regarding travel plans prior to attending Camp FA in order to determine any potential quarantine requirements.
As per CDC guidelines, anyone traveling internationally will be required to:
Get tested with a viral test 3-5 days after travel AND stay home and self-quarantine for a full 7 days after travel
Even if you test negative, stay home and self-quarantine for the full 7 days
If you don’t get tested, stay home and self-quarantine for 10 days after travel
Camp FA is committed to providing campers with opportunities to learn, to promote self-confidence, to develop decision-making and social skills, to learn new or improve current skills, and to be environmentally aware. Our philosophy focuses on the need and growth of both the individual camper and the overall group. In order to maintain a positive and safe environment, our campers are expected to follow Camp FA's Camper Code of Conduct (PDF).
