Webinar - Coronavirus Considerations for Camp: The Conversation Continues

This webinar will expand on topics from the original Coronavirus Considerations for Camp webinar in March.  We will address potential changes camps will need to make this summer due to the COVID-19 pandemic and provide tools and resources to help camps mitigate risk and prepare for a communicable disease outbreak.

Outcomes:

  • Participants will better understand what they can do before camp begins to reduce the likelihood of an outbreak.
  • Participants will learn how to help minimize the spread of illness during camp.
  • Participants will learn how to evaluate the steps to manage a potential outbreak at camp.
