Covid-19 vaccine requirement update for Summer 2023: Updated February 16, 2023
Camp Livingston is committed to providing a safe environment for our entire community. We are grateful for your support of that commitment and playing your part. Part of this safety continues to be considerations related to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Your willingness and dedication to follow COVID-19 safety measures at Camp Livingston in the past led to safe and successful operations in summers 2021 and 2022.
The Camp Livingston leadership team takes into consideration best practices for summer camps published by the CDC, American Camp Association, and Department of Health, as well as the guidance of a Medical Committee, in order to establish operations at the highest standard for our Camp families.
As we look forward to summer 2023, Camp Livingston strongly recommends all campers be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, including up to date boosters. However, for this coming season, camper admission criteria will not include the requirement of COVID-19 vaccination (fully or partially). This policy is subject to alteration pending any major unforeseen changes in the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. For summer 2023, staff members, both year-round and seasonal, are required to maintain up-to-date vaccination status according to the CDC at all times.
Each camper, family, and staff member who chooses to participate in an amazing summer at Camp Livingston also makes a commitment to care for one another’s overall well-being at Camp. As related to COVID-19, this involves the willingness to practice all of the policies and safety measures put in place, and a commitment to honesty and transparency about symptoms, exposures, and test results at home. Camp Livingston, with the support of our Medical Committee, continues to place strong emphasis on pre-camp COVID-19 screening and strongly recommends all campers be vaccinated.
We are working closely with our Medical Committee to establish pre-screening and onsite testing and other safety protocols. These procedures will guide a safe and uninterrupted Camp season and will be released closer to summer.
Thank you, as always, for your support and commitment! Our team is looking forward to an amazing summer!
