Keep up with current information regarding events and summer camps at Tall Timbers amid COVID-19 on this page.
Summer Camps 2021
*Louisiana is currently under a “modified Phase 2” *
We are allowed to sleep campers at a 50% capacity. Note: In Phase 3 and under the modified Phase 2, the Louisiana guidelines for businesses online was never updated to allow “sleepover camps” but our camp and others had been allowed to do so in October 2020.
Summer Camps are scheduled for 2021! Registration opens to 2020 churches beginning January 5, 2021. Open to all others on February 1, 2021.
Information for 2021
-As mentioned above, all churches who would have attended in 2020 will receive emails on January 5, 2021 to allow them to register first in 2021. February 5, 2021 registration will open to all new churches or to those who did not register in January.
-Housing for camp will based on the current Louisiana COVID-19 lodging restrictions. (See top of this page for current Phase conditions related to COVID-19) As of Dec 21, 2020, we are in a “modified Phase 2” and are allowed to sleep campers at a 50% capacity. (note: in Phase 3 and under the modified Phase 2 the LA guidelines for businesses online was never updated to allow “sleepover camps” but our camp and others had been allowed to do so in October 2020)
-We will take registrations and deposits until we meet our housing limit under COVID guidelines. We will create a waiting list after a camp week fills, so that if COVID conditions improve and we are able to open lodging to a greater percentage later in 2021, you will be next in line to register. We will not ask for a deposit for those on a waiting list until space opens up.
-Should your whole church group have to back out of summer camp, or individuals cancel prior to camp, we will return your deposits like we did in 2020, if it is a COVID-related reason (sick, quarantine, etc)
-We must have a signed waiver from every camp participant stating that you understand COVID-19 transmission risk if you come to camp. We will include this waiver as a part of registration materials.
-As mentioned above, overnight housing will be at a 50% capacity. In cabins, people are to sleep alternating top and bottom bunks as well as alternating from head to toe. Beds are already marked appropriately.
-Participants will be masked as much as possible during the camp week. Tall Timbers staff has been wearing masks while hosting groups as we have put COVID safety standards into practice.
-Extra hand sanitizing stations will be located at camp as well as signage encouraging hand washing, cleanliness, coughing into elbows, etc.
-Daily temperature and symptom screenings
-A plan to isolate and quarantine participants until they can be sent home from Tall Timbers should they experience COVID symptoms
