Crossings at Skycroft Health & Safety Plan:
All of these policies and practices are subject to change based on CDC, state, and local health department guidelines.
COMMITTED TO SAFETY
Safety continues to be one of our core values and we want you to know all that we are doing to keep your students safe during this pandemic. We want to love God well by being good stewards of all He has entrusted to us and love our guests well by providing a distraction-free environment to encounter the gospel.
IT STARTS WITH US
We are working closely with our state and local health department officials to follow the recommendations set forth by the CDC and the Maryland Department of Health to equip our staff and guests to minimize the spread of germs. Our staff will be thoroughly educated in CDC approved sanitizing protocols.
We have reduced capacity in housing, dining and meeting spaces for camp this year. This allows us to spread out within lodging and around campus. Depending on changes to CDC, state and local guidelines, we are currently planning to operate at 50% capacity in our dining halls and limiting camp registration to 70% of our standard overall camp capacity.
We will not be allowing any non-essential visitors on campus this summer. This excludes emergency situations. Additionally, we will not be offering the off-campus Missions Track this summer.
HAND SANITATION PROGRAM
We will have hand sanitizing stations set up at strategic places around campus and encourage frequent use. We will also be encouraging all guests to wash hands as much as possible throughout the day.
RIGOROUS SCREENING PROCESS
All camper and adult participants will sign a medical release and complete a health questionnaire within 24 hours prior to leaving for camp stating that they exhibited no symptoms associated with COVID-19 during the 14-day period leading up to their arrival to Skycroft. Any guest who has shown symptoms in that time span will not be permitted on property but will have the opportunity to be refunded. Temperature checks will happen for every person prior to and upon their arrival on campus, as well as daily temperature checks for all participants and staff while at camp.
WE KEEP IT CLEAN
Our cleaning and sanitizing protocol will meet or exceed that which the CDC and Maryland Department of Health have set forth. High traffic areas such as public restrooms, entry ways and lobby areas will be cleaned and sanitized multiple times per day. All lodging accomodations will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected before campers arrive. Dining facilities will meet or exceed CDC sanitizing requirements.
FOCUSING ON NPIs
We will be implementing various nonpharmaceutical interventions (NPIs) to help limit exposure, increase cleanliness and keep everyone at camp safe. This begins with basic mitigation methods such as face coverings and distancing, but we are also implementing more extensive measures to ensure the safety of our camp participants including (but not limited to):
implementing of the “cohort model” of camping, recommended by the American Camp Association (ACA) to limit exposure
prioritizing outdoor settings for as many activities and camp elements as possible (including outdoor dining options)
enhancing air filtration and purification in lodging areas
limiting shared items and materials
PARTNERING WITH GUESTS
We want our guests and other responsible parties to be fully confident and informed on the health protocols we have in place to keep our guests safe. If you would like additional information or clarification, please call us at 800-536-6759. Our staff will be happy to answer any questions you might have.
