CGL Immunization and COVID Policy
Camp Granite Lake requires campers and staff to be FULLY immunized (non-COVID immunizations) using Colorado State guidelines for schools before camp begins. Campers and staff with medical exceptions may be allowed at camp with documentation from their physician. We are sorry, but personal exemptions will not be accepted.
We recognize that families of fully immunized children may choose not to get COVID vaccinations for their children. While current COVID vaccines continue to provide strong protection against severe disease, we understand their ability to prevent infection has been greatly diminished by the current COVID variants.
We very strongly recommend campers be up-to-date on their COVID vaccines at the start of camp, but will not be requiring the COVID vaccination for campers in 2023. (All staff members will still be required to be up-to-date with their COVID vaccines).
If families choose not to be up-to-date on their camper’s COVID vaccine at the start of camp:
- Campers will be required to quarantine for 7-days prior to the start of their camp session.
- Campers will also be required to test, at home, 72 hours and 24 hours prior to their arrival to camp, with results submitted to Camp Granite Lake.
- Campers may also be tested with all campers upon arrival.
- Campers may be sent home, without a refund, if they are a close contact with someone who tests positive for COVID at camp.
If, at the start of the 2023 camp season, there is an available and approved vaccine for camp aged children that has demonstrated effectiveness at preventing COVID infections, and your camper has not received it, and they have a close contact to a COVID case at camp, they will be sent home, without a refund.
For the quarantine time period this means:
- Campers will interact only with their immediate family, and will wear masks when that includes in-home childcare and grandparents.
- If there are necessary interactions in public (Drs. Appts, dentist, co-workers, etc.) campers, and their families, will wear masks.
- No travel by plane or public transportation.
- No restaurants, bars, sporting events, concerts, etc.
- No attending other camps.
- Playdates, parties, or gatherings must be outside.
Attending or working at CGL this summer will again be a shared commitment.
2023 Medication Policy
- To be fully compliant with Colorado Childcare Licensing rules, starting in 2023 we require ALL medications to be signed off by a physician on our form.
- This includes prescription medications AND any over-the-counter vitamins and supplements.
- We will have on hand basic as-needed over-the-counter medications, such as acetaminophen, ibuprofen, pepto-bismol, hydrocortisone etc. for the medical team to administer when needed.
- When campers are dropped off, we will not be able to accept any medications that are not already signed off by a physician.
