CDC’s Guidance for Operating Youth and Summer Camps During COVID-19

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offers guidance for operating day and overnight summer camps in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic for the summer of 2021. This guidance, updated May 28, 2021, outlines strategies that camp programs can use to maintain healthy environments and operations, lower the risk of COVID-19 spread in their programs, prepare for when someone is sick with COVID-19, and support coping and resilience. The updated guidance has added sections on promoting vaccinations, guidance for camps that are fully vaccinated, and guidance where campers and staff are not fully vaccinated.  The CDC guidelines are meant to supplement and not replace any federal, state, local, territorial, or tribal rules, so for related information on guidelines from each state, see the American Camp Association webpage here This resource supports the COVID-19 response.
