Dear Camp Weaver Families,
As we continue to navigate through the COVID-19 outbreak, we understand this is a very challenging situation for all our families – especially our children. Please click here for a guide on how to talk to children about the pandemic.
As we approach summer, children will need the Camp Weaver experience more than ever.
In order to better support you, our Camp families, we have created this page with Frequently Asked Questions. These will be regularly updated as we learn more.
Please reach out to our office if you have any questions. 336-697-0525
Frequently Asked Questions – COVID-19
Are we will still having camp? Is camp cancelled?
Overnight Camp Session 1 was cancelled, all remaining overnight sessions are still taking place.
Day Camps have been running on schedule.
Additional Health Care Procedures In Place
We will be consulting with medical professionals to review all of our healthcare protocols and disinfecting procedures to ensure the health/safety of our campers and staff. Just like many camps across our nation, we have decades of experience safely managing communicable diseases.
With that in mind, this is what you can expect for your camper’s experience at YMCA Camp Weaver this summer:
- Daily health screening, which will include a temperature check and specific health/exposure questions.
- We are asking families not to send any child that has shown any symptoms within 14 days of camp check in.
- We are lowering our cabin and day group capacities to 10 campers each to support social distancing.
- Campers will be sleeping at least 6 feet apart (head to toe) in cabins.
- We will be providing face coverings(tubies) for all campers and staff to wear if they must enter a building and social distancing is not obtainable.
- We will not be offering any activities that require campers/staff to be in close proximity or contact.
- We have established a thorough hand washing and hand sanitizing process before and during every meal. All family style meals will be served by staff.
- We will be sanitizing all shared equipment between uses with CDC-recommended chemicals.
- Hand sanitizer stations will be established throughout the facility.
- Campers and/or staff with symptoms will be isolated to prevent any potential spread.
- We will be sanitizing all commonly touched surfaces at least 4 times a day.
Will my child have to wear a mask in the summer heat?
We will be providing face coverings(tubies) for all campers and staff to wear if they must enter a building and social distancing is not obtainable. Bus riders will have to wear the tubie during the entire bus ride to and from camp. If camper looses their tubie, they will have to bring their own face covering or purchase another tubie in the camp trading post for $5.
What is the daily health screen?
Each morning all campers and staff will have their temperature checked and will answer the following questions:
- Do you or any of the children you are dropping off have a fever (100.4+), cough, shortness of breath, or difficulty breathing, chills, new loss of taste or smell (vomiting, diarrhea-children only) ?
- Have you or any of the children you are dropping off had any symptoms in the last 10 days?
- Been in contact with anyone with those symptoms?
- Potentially been exposed to COVID-19 or have reason to believe you/they potentially have COVID-19?
*Day Campers must have parent present during health screen

- In the case of accident or illness (that prevents child from participating in camp programs), sessions can be transferred to a later session upon director approval. Verification in writing from your child’s physician is required stating that the child cannot attend camp. Please contact our office immediately if your child is unable to attend camp for any reason.
- The camp director reserves the right to decline the application of any child, or send home any child who, according to the Director’s discretion, if the child is not a desirable associate for the other campers, or puts themselves or others at risk. If a child is dismissed from camp, there will be no refund issued.
Children with serious health conditions
Based on discussion with the American Camp Association, we believe that it is best for children with serious health conditions to not participate in our regular sessions; however, we do suggest that parents consult with their family doctor for advice.
