Ensuring Health and Safety During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Dear Treetops Families,

I hope you are all safe and healthy in the midst of this fast-moving COVID – 19 epidemic. Of course, our highest priority is the health and safety of all campers. I want to reassure you that although we don’t know what this epidemic will look like in the coming months, we are doing all that we can to ensure your child’s health and safety. I am receiving regular updates from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the American Camp Association (ACA), and the New York State Department of Health.

Because Camp happens in a close community, Treetops has always taken great care to develop and maintain medical practices and protocols to address a variety of communicable diseases, both common and rare. For instance, last summer, all protocols were in place for handling a potential measles outbreak.

We have communicable disease plans in place that will be revised in cooperation with public health authorities as additional COVID – 19 guidance is provided. I will continue to keep you updated as new information becomes available.

Again, your child’s health and safety is our most important priority. Please feel free to get in touch with me if you have any questions or concerns. I look forward to welcoming your child to Treetops in June!

Sincerely,

Karen Culpepper
Camp Treetops Director
