Summer Camps for Youth

It’s official: school is out and our students are on summer break.  For many, this also means summer camps.  While day and overnight camps are valuable, we would like to remind families and camp operators of the guidance that has been published by the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services. 

Updated today, Guidance for Day Camp or Program Settings Serving Children and Teens (PDF) provides a detailed checklist for operating procedures, prevention strategies, and illness instructions.  Additionally, camps are required to:

  • Communicate to parents/families COVID-19 related instructions in preparation for camp opening (for example, stay home if symptomatic).
  • Provide education and training on COVID-19 strategies for camp staff using videos, webinars, and FAQ’s.

Staying Ahead of the Curve

As we continue adjusting to life in the Phase 2 Safer at Home conditions, the Public Health Command Center is offering a reminder of what is authorized under the Governor’s Executive Order.  Please reference the NC Staying Ahead of the Curve Summary (PDF) for complete information.
