COVID Protocols

Please read the following important information about our site’s COVID protocols prior to registering and again prior to arriving at camp.

We look forward to welcoming you to our site. With your support, we will work hard to make your visit a rewarding and happy experience for all. We hope that you will have a great time exploring, learning new and exciting outdoor activities, and of course making new friends and memories that we hope will last a lifetime.

If one or more states have a spike in cases of highly contagious COVID-19 variants, Maine will apply its test or quarantine requirement to visitors to and from that state. The Maine CDC will publicly announce any such states when they are identified.

See updated Maine Visitor Information here.

Vaccination and Testing:

  • All University of Maine System employees are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID or have an approved exemption and participate in weekly COVID testing.
  • We expect to have additional guidance around participant vaccination and testing prior to the start of summer programming.

Procedures and General Practices: 

  • All staff, participants, and visitors will wear face masks while indoors or while doing outdoor activities where social distancing can not be maintained.  Face coverings continue to be welcomed in any circumstance when individuals choose to wear them as a matter of personal preference. Masks and or neck gaiters must have two or more layers of washable, breathable fabric and be properly sized to your face. Masks with valves and bandanas are not adequate face coverings.
  • We have increased cleaning and disinfection practices within our facilities.
  • Our physical spaces have been reconfigured to allow for appropriate social distancing.
  • Staff have been trained on tools for promoting healthy hygiene practices and mask-wearing. 
  • All staff will be following UMaine System requirements for vaccination and weekly testing.
  • Activities will take place outdoors unless we are experiencing inclement weather.
  • Anyone that shows signs of sickness will need to leave our site as soon as possible.
  • Anyone who feels ill or has tested positive for COVID-19 or has been in contact with someone with COVID-19 in the last 14 days, including staff, participants, and visitors, are not permitted to come to our site. Symptoms of COVID-19 may include fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, muscle pain, sore throat, and loss of taste or smell. Call your doctor if you think you or a family member is sick.
