DuBois Center will be open for summer camp next week (July 17-22)

Camp Update: DuBois Center was closed to campers last week July 10-15 due to COVID exposure the week before. Our staff responded properly to this and are taking the necessary measures to have a healthy week of camp.

We feel comfortable welcoming back campers for the camp sessions starting Sunday, July, 17–as the PCR test results for our staff have been negative.

Our staff and volunteers will be required to wear masks during check-in and when indoors with campers not in their cabin groups.

Similar to last summer, cabin groups will form a pod or family unit for the camp session. At this time, we recommend masks for campers, but it is not required. If we were to require masks for campers, masked time daily would be MINIMAL as almost all activities are outdoors or with cabin groups only. For safety reasons, masks are NOT to be worn while sleeping.

Potential COVID exposure during summer camp week 5 (July 6-8)

We recently learned a staff member and a volunteer tested positive for COVID-19. Both were around campers and staff during last week’s summer camp from July 6-8, and have since reported experiencing flu-like symptoms. Further details and recommendations have been shared with our campers’ parents and guardians. Summer camp has been cancelled this week. We are still evaluating whether we can safely move forward with summer camp next week.

We are committed to transparency about our response, and to protecting the privacy of all those involved. We appreciate your patience as we continue to follow our safety protocols and evaluate the situation going forward.

Camps Cancelled for next week (July 10 – 15)

Out of an abundance of caution, we are cancelling all of next week’s summer camp sessions (July 10 – 15, 2022).  Our lake has been treated, but is not yet safe for campers.  There is also a chance some staff members were exposed to COVID.  All camper parents and guardians have been notified.

At this time, we expect camps to be back on track the following week (July 17 – 22).  Thank you for your understanding.
