  • American Camps Association (ACA) hosted a town hall session with their research team and health professionals.

Below you can find the links to their recommendations and the ACA Field Guide for camps. These resources can help your country Camp Industry plan for the near future and take measures that could help in the upcoming months.

The best advice from the research team:

“Use of masks combined with distance in the outdoors lowers potential risk”

  1. Try to maximize distance between campers and staff (min 6 ft or 1,8 meters)
  2. Use of mask for everyone. Specially this with multiple layers of fabric.
  3. Stay outdoors as much as your program/weather permits.
