What are we doing to minimize COVID-19 risks?

We have implemented new summer procedures to help the kids naturally distance. At this time, we will only be able to operate with 50 campers per week.  Since we have to run at a lower capacity, please register as soon as possible.  The camper cut off will be determined by the registration date.  There is no risk to register.  If camp is not able to open we will be offering a full refund.

We are asking any guests, campers, and staff that are experiencing health problems or that have been in contact with any people known to be infected or ill to please stay home.

We have worked hard to make sure we can operate within the guidelines set for us by the State of Michigan, CDC, and MDHHS.

  • If anyone is high risk or more vulnerable to sickness, please stay home this season.

  • We will be cleaning our living areas and facilities daily.

  • We will operate in smaller groups (cabin groups or divisions).

  • Washing hands and sanitizing will be regularly enforced.

  • High touch surfaces will be treated with an antimicrobial.

  • Food service will be family style with six feet between the tables to socially distance a cabin families.

  • Activities and events will be separated by smaller age groups.


Our facilities have ample air flow - we do not have climate control.  We have screens and fresh air.  This is the best practice for health safety. The cabins have screens, and the air is always moving to make the living quarters as germ free as possible.  The campers will clean their areas daily, and their heads will be 6 feet apart from one another while sleeping.  Before the next group comes into camp every cabin will be disinfected with approved sanitizer.

While going through the pages and pages of recommendations, it was wonderfully comforting to see that we already exceeded many of the best practices suggested by the experts.  Our camp functions in small groups.  This will help camp feel like camp without having to make drastic changes.



  • We will have a healthcare professional at camp.

  • We will screen the campers upon arrival.

  • Campers are required to not have been around known infected people within two weeks of camp.

  • If a camper has had a fever of 100.4 or higher within two prior weeks of camp, please do not come to camp.

  • If a camper has a fever over 100 degrees at camp they will be isolated from the group in a room in the Health Center and will wait to be picked up by their approved pickup person as soon as possible.

  • There will be a tent outside the Health Center for the campers to get medications. This will lower the traffic in the Health Center to eliminate cross contamination.

  • Temperature checks will be performed upon arrival and daily.



Food Service

  • Our dining room will have tables 6 feet apart to allow cabin groups to distance together as family units.

  • Staff will serve the campers so everyone is not touching the serving spoons or getting up constantly.

  • Everyone will sit at the same place at their table for each meal.

  • Two staff will be assigned to each table to keep meals moving. One will serve, and the other will clean up.


All activities will be offered to specific divisions.  Most activities are run with social distancing practices already (e.g., it would be unnatural to canoe closer than 6 feet from the other person).  The reason for specific divisions is so the campers can travel to and from the activities more naturally.  Moving about as family groups will help camp feel like camp and also offer an extra layer of protection as the campers move about.


Some GPS and maps programs won't get you here!
