All of these policies and practices are subject to change based on CDC, state, and local health department guidelines.
What will a day at camp look like?
Mealtimes – Meals will be split into four separate times corresponding with the four camp colors. Each tribe will be guided by our staff through their specific line to sit at their specific tables and will be guided through proper sanitization before and after each meal. We will stay at a limited capacity which will allow tables to be more spread out.
Small/Large Group – Both small group and large group will happen within corresponding camp colors, tribes, and bible study groups. Our staff will guide each small group to and from large group and small group keeping proper distance from other groups while traveling and sitting in the worship center. Our small groups will remain age/gender separated to the greatest extent possible.
Worship Center – This year, we will be running the worship center at a limited capacity. Your tribe will rotate through the worship center, staying appropriately distant from other tribes.
Crossbowl - Crossbowl will have a different look this year as we will be competing in Morning Celebration each day to earn points and then culminate in the classic and epic battles of Neb's Head and Kajabe Can Can!"
Morning Rec - With our tribe model we are able to do more of the activities you have come to love from Crossings! Each day we will have time to do extra activities with each tribe that will include activities like Archery Tag, Bazooka Ball, Ultimate Frisbee and more!"
POIs – This year, tribes will attend POIs together. This helps our participants have smaller contact groups. Our schedule will allow tribes to attend two POIs a day and will sometimes have options between two POIs within a rotation. All campers will have the opportunity to participate in all of our marquee POIs. This will allow participants to experience more POIs than ever before!
Shack - We are merging Shack and Fellowship together into a nightly extravaganza. We will have four Shack's each night, each with a different activity and a different menu. Camp colors will rotate each night to a different shack, allowing everyone to experience all four shacks!"
Will my group need to wear a mask? Your group will need to wear a face-covering when inside, excluding while eating and drinking. Participants will not need to wear face coverings when at the lake, while participating in outdoor activities, or while sleeping, eating, or drinking.
Will my group need to be tested before arrival?
Your group will not need to be tested prior to arriving at camp. Temperature checks will be required prior to the arrival of camp and on a daily basis.
Will I need to take my group’s temperature each day?
Each participant’s temperature will be taken every day.
If a participant in my group tests positive while at camp, will my group need to quarantine?
If a participant tests positive for COVID-19, the participant’s parent or guardian should pick up, or have arranged to have picked up, the participant within 3 hours. When an individual tests positive for COVID-19, we will notify the group leaders of all participants in the tribe. Our staff, along with the group leaders and their adult chaperones, will help determine which other students have had close contact with the individual and must be quarantined. The participants who had close contact with the individual who tested positive will need to also be picked up and leave camp within 3 hours in order to quarantine.
Campers returning from camp should consider minimizing in-person contact with any person 65 years of age or older, especially those with pre-existing health conditions, for a period of fourteen days. This includes maintaining social distancing of at least 6 feet of separation from those individuals, wearing a face-covering or mask, and avoiding sharing utensils or other common objects with those individuals.
What will capacity be like?
Depending on changes to CDC, state, and local guidelines, we are currently planning to operate at a limited capacity in our dining hall and worship center, and the entire property. We will follow CDC guidelines in determining close contact, which the CDC prescribes as 15-minutes of contact within 6-feet within 24 hours. This contact rule applies whether minutes are consecutive or non-consecutive, masked/unmasked, or indoors/outdoors.
What will cleaning look like?
High traffic areas such as restrooms, meeting spaces, and indoor gathering areas will be cleaned and sanitized multiple times per day. Cabins will be cleaned and disinfected before campers arrive. Dining facilities will be sanitized before every meal. Hand sanitizer stations will be readily available around property.
What will housing look like?
We will have reduced capacities in our housing units. We are recommending sleeping head to foot in each of our sleeping spaces.
