COVID-19 and Coniston
This page will be updated as information becomes available and decisions are made. Detailed instructions will be coming the weeks before Camp starts.

May 2021 Vaccines Change Camp Procedures
When Conistonians are inside their cabin with their ‘cabin family’ they will not be required to wear masks, but will be encouraged to when possible.
When Campers and staff leave their cabins and cannot maintain social distancing or are inside public buildings masks will be required.
Mealtime: once you are seated at your table masks can be removed for eating.
Masks are required in program areas where campers and staff are interacting with people from other cabins. Masks will not be required during water activities (water activities will be scheduled by cabin).
Masks will be required during all large group activities and when traveling around Camp.
The counselors and campers that all live in the same cabin is a cabin family.
Bunk beds – Coniston staff will assign bunks ahead of time and each camper will stay in that bed for the entire session. Staff will assist all campers in unpacking and making beds on check-in day.
Bathhouses – We will require masks to be worn in the bathrooms, except when showering. Showers will be scheduled by cabin to reduce the chance of exposure.
There will be additional day and night time RN’s on staff each session. There will be at least two nurses on site 24 hours a day to care for your child. Rapid Covid tests will be administered to anyone who exhibits symptoms. Our infirmary is set up to be able to quarantine anyone until they are able to be picked up by their emergency contact.
At this time, all individuals that have had close contact with that person will also be required to leave Camp. This is why emergency contacts must be available to pick up your child if needed.
We are prepared to run Camp in a variety of ways. This could mean each cabin travels through Camp as a group throughout the day, it could mean the Camp schedule looks like a typical year with individual schedules, it will most likely be a combination of the two.
