What is the current situation with COVID-19 and camps?
COVID-19 is a contagious disease that can lead to severe illness. Additionally, an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, campers, guests, and staff with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable. We encourage people to stay home when sick, test as needed, and get vaccinated.
The United Methodist Camps of the Dakotas and Minnesota will adjust COVID-19 safety protocols as needed based on recent trends and regulatory guidance by the CDC and state health departments. Updated safety information will be shared with camp participants as needed.
