Camp Format During COVID

What to Expect Concerning Camp Format and COVID Protocols

Based on the Tier that Contra Costa County is in at the time of camp, you can expect camp to operate as noted below. It is currenlty projected that our county/region will be in the Yellow Tier by June 1. Additionally, the State has noted that on June 15, we should expect a major reopening and loosening of all protocols, and that it will abandon the current Tier based protocol system.

It is also important to note that County and State guidelines change frequently, making it likely that these standards will be adjusted. We expect (thanks to vaccine availability) that additional activities will be allowed (fewer/looser restrictions) as we get closer to summer.
