Health & Safety Updates

We are following Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), American Camp Association 
(ACA), and CT Office of Early Childhood (OEC) guidance which may change, so please check back here for the most up-to-date information.

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work to bring you a safe, fun, and fulfilling summer camp experience.

Communicable Disease Plan
Together with our Medical Director and our team of Camp Nurses, we have put together a 
comprehensive Communicable Disease Plan that will allow us to respond quickly to any communicable 
disease that appears at camp.

To ensure the safest environment for everyone, please follow all applicable CDC guidelines and 
monitor your health in the weeks before camp. 

If a situation arises at camp, Silver Lake will follow best practices for disease mitigation, which may include testing, cohorting, and masking. 

Campers who become ill, begin showing symptoms or who test positive for a communicable disease after arriving at Silver Lake will need to be picked up within 6 hours (unless parents are notified after 6 
p.m. and live 3 hours or further away, in which case the camper will be isolated overnight). Campers 
will be housed separately until they are picked up by a parent/guardian or Authorized Pickup.

Silver Lake follows the immunization requirements for students and staff in Connecticut schools.

In addition, Silver Lake requires all guests to our site to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19. If your 
camper has a medical exemption, please contact us for more information.

As a ministry of the Southern New England Conference, United Church of Christ (SNE UCC), Silver Lake adheres to all the policies put in place by the Conference.
