A Message from Kerry Steever, Placerville Camp Director:
Greetings from Placerville Camp!
We are excited to send out this message to let you know that we will be opening up for summer programming! YAY!!
Obviously with COVID still in full swing, as of right now, there will be some changes from the norm and we hope that by the time summer reaches us, we can change our course of action.
First off, all campers and staff will be wearing masks while indoors, except while sleeping. Campers will receive a cloth mask once they arrive and disposable masks will also be available. Campers, however, will be encouraged to bring their own masks as well as hand sanitizer.
Second, we will be restricting the number of campers that can attend. Youth camps will have a limit of 30 campers so that we can keep a ratio of 1 counselor to 5 campers. This will allow safer sleeping arrangements in the cabins. Women’s Camp will also have a limit of 30 participants. Campers will also be doing most of their activities within their family groups which includes meals times.
Third, registration will be on-line only, so a camp brochure will not be mailed out. On-line registration will allow us to keep track of the numbers as registrations are made in real time. We can keep track of numbers better this way. This can be done at placervillecamp.net.
On-line registration also allows us to notify campers as guidelines change where we might have the need to adjust our protocols.
We would appreciate your helping get the word out to your congregation. Please pass on the website placervillecamp.net so folks will know where to get their information.
More information will be coming as time goes on. With many prayers, maybe we can lift the limit on numbers as summer draws near. We look forward to seeing you at camp!
