COVID-19 Policy Update

As promised, today we are announcing updates to our policies to address and mitigate the spread of Covid-19.

Rates of transmission in the region have remained in the low range (COVID-19 by County | CDC), and so we are excited to announce that campers will no longer be required to present a negative PCR test upon arrival. Masks may be required if campers must be inside buildings where they must be in very close proximity, but we will continue to do our best to do programming outside in the fresh air.

For communities with low rates of transmission, the CDC continues to recommend that residents stay up to date with the Covid-19 vaccine and get tested when they have symptoms. During the summer, campers must be free of symptoms in order to attend programming. If a camper is symptomatic, they will be asked to remain home for the recommended number of days and wear a mask if necessary depending on their vaccination status (as recommended by the CDC) or present a negative Covid-19 test before returning.

Moving forward, we will continue to monitor rates of transmission as well as other relevant information on the pandemic. If necessary, we will adjust our policies to incorporate necessary precautions as we have done from the beginning. As we stated in our last announcement, if you decide that you would like to cancel your child’s registration at this time and notify us by Friday, MAY 6th, we will provide a full refund including deposit. After May 6th, refunds will be granted according to our normal refund policy.

As we enter our 99th season, please pray for a healthy summer at Camp Christopher.

Thank you,
Tess Flannery
Catholic Charities of Summit County

Thank You Supporters!

Thank you to everyone who joined us on November 30th for We Give Catholic! With your support we were able to raise $9,070 for our 2022 camperships!

A huge thank you goes out to Friends of Camp Christopher (FOCC) for donating $20,000 to our 2022 campership fund. A large portion of our camperships are funded by FOCC which allows us to help many families with summer camp fees. Thank you to all our friends, supporters, and Camp Christopher family- we couldn't do it without you!
