At Kentucky 4-H Camp, we are taking additional steps this summer to protect our campers, volunteers and employees. Our COVID Mitigation and Operations Plan is designed to address COVID-19 and includes virus prevention methods, supply and resource procurement, communication and training, cabin-centric programming, and increased cleaning and sanitizing procedures.

The purpose of this plan is to develop and implement a strategy to operate summer camp programs while preventing the spread and outbreak of COVID-19. We are closely monitoring government policy changes and are following the strict Mandatory and Recommended Best Practice Guidance of the American Camp Association (ACA) Operations Field Guide , Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Childcare Guidelines, federal, state and local governments and health departments. We will continue to make changes, as necessary or appropriate, to our camp procedures to ensure Kentucky 4-H Camping is a safe and healthy experience for our camp families.

05/24/2021 Update: The University of Kentucky 4-H Youth Development program is committed to providing a safe and positive 4-H camping environment this summer.  With this in mind, we have created a comprehensive and thorough safety plan that encourages social distancing, masking, and frequent sanitation.  We will be fully implementing all steps of this plan throughout the summer to ensure we are taking all necessary steps to prevent the spread of Covid-19.  This may mean that local or state guidelines are less restrictive than those of our camping program.  However, in an abundance of caution, we will follow our approved camping plan until all Covid-19 restrictions are lifted.
