SUMMER 2020 

These are truly unprecedented times, even considering our 110 years plus of operation. We have survived and flourished during those years by partnering with our parents in the growth and development of their children, and we will continue to do so as we navigate these new challenges.

 

Please know that we enter this summer with an unwavering commitment to ensuring a safe and healthy camp environment for your camper. As always, thank you for sticking by us and for trusting us with your most precious asset. Please let us know how we can help your family prepare for the summer.

COVID-19 FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Is camp still going to happen this summer?

Yes! Despite these unprecedented times, our outlook for the summer is hopeful. It is our belief that your camper is going to need camp more than ever this summer. We still have several weeks before Opening Day – and longer for those in Second Session or Coed. Until then, we will continue to gather more information and will rely on directives from public health officials and guidance from the Camp Associations.

What is being done differently at camp to keep everyone safe?

Health and hygiene have always been a focus at camp, and we plan to be extra vigilant this summer. In over 100 years of camp, we have dealt with several Noroviruses. We also have new resources available and established procedures in place that help keep our community in good health. We are taking additional precautionary measures for when campers arrive at camp this summer:

• All buildings are thoroughly cleaned, including doorknobs, handles and light switches.
• We perform Pre-Camp Health Checks on our staff, including checking their temperatures.
• Staff is trained extensively on hygiene procedures during Staff Orientation.
• Every cabin is equipped with a bottle of sanitizing spray that counselors are instructed to use daily.

Our Health Center is staffed 24 hours per day. All campers receive a health check at the Health Center when they arrive at camp which includes checking their temperatures.

During camp, each cabin bathroom and showerhouse is cleaned regularly by our housekeeping staff. The cleaning products we use are on the CDC Approved List for eliminating COVID-19. We are also installing additional handwashing stations and adding hand sanitizer to many more locations around camp.

What is the refund policy for Covid-19?

Our cancellation policy is one of the most lenient available in the private camping industry. Between February 1 and April 30 (the current time period), a cancellation initiated by a camp family has a cancel fee of $600 for 2-, 3-, or 4-week sessions or $300 for Intro or Coed. You may make the April 1st Payment and know that all funds over the $600/$300 are fully refundable, should you choose to cancel before April 30.

Please be assured that, should camp be forced to close (by state mandate or similar), we will work with each of you to determine the best solution for your family. These are truly unprecedented times, even considering our 110 years plus of operation. We have survived and flourished during those years by partnering with our parents in the growth and development of their children, and we will continue to do so as we navigate these new challenges.

What kind of medical staff do you have at camp?

Camp Lincoln and Camp Lake Hubert each have a complete health center with two health staff that are registered nurses or are currently enrolled in a nursing degree program. Our health center staff handle the day-to-day health, medical services, and needs of all campers and staff. A doctor (MD) lives at Camp Lincoln and serves both camps each day with clinic and special visit hours. A major hospital is just 12 miles away if needed.

Are camper forms still due?

Yes. The Travel, Cabinmate Request, Health, and Camper Details forms should be submitted online through your CampMinder account.  Your Physician and Anaphylaxis Forms should be sent to the following addresses during the corresponding times:

May 13th-August 16th:
P.O. Box 1308
Lake Hubert, MN 56459

August 17th-May 12th:

Can we tour the camps?

Under normal circumstances we love showing the property to prospective camp families. In lieu of a physical visit we are working on ways to show camp virtually. You can request more information by contacting our summer office at 800-242-1909.

Will I still be able to visit our campers when they are at camp?

In a regular season you can visit your camper, although we do not recommend it. We don’t yet know what visiting policies will be for this summer.

In our experience, we find that family visits can trigger or re-trigger feelings of homesickness. If you still wish to visit, you can set up a time by calling the camp office at 800-242-1909.

Which organizations are you receiving guidance from?

We are closely monitoring guidelines and information using the following resources:

  • Center for Disease Control
  • Minnesota Department of Health
  • American Camp Association
  • Association of Camp Nursing

Additionally, we have a representative from the Northland section of the American Camp Association who is in close contact with state officials.
