COVID Information

Virus Protection

First and foremost, if you, your camper or a close family member are at a high risk of developing severe symptoms/death from COVID-19, or it’s variants, you should not attend programs at YMCA Camp U-Nah-Li-Ya.
While we have many prudent virus protection policies in place it is almost certain that your camper will be in close contact with other children, both vaccinated and unvaccinated. You, the parent, need to understand that the summer camp experience at U-Nah-Li-Ya is inherently and unavoidably more infectious than normal activities and make decisions that are right for your family.
The safety of your camper and your family is our number one priority. The quality of your camper(s) experience is our second. We believe that we can provide a meaningful summer camp experience for your camper(s) while taking every reasonable precaution to minimize the possibility of exposure to the COVID-19 virus.
While Camp U-Nah-Li-Ya has always employed best practices for hygiene, health, and sanitation we will be implementing some additional practices for the maximum protection of your camper(s), your family, and our staff. Below is a brief list of the precautions we will be taking this summer. The COVID pandemic is an ever changing situation. We will adjust precautions as prudent and directed by the guidance of the CDC and local health department. We will meet, but generally not exceed the scope of mandated protocols. 
• All guests will complete a health screening and temperature check upon entering the facility.
• Camper and staff temperature and symptom checks will be conducted daily.
• All campers, staff, and guests will be encouraged to wear masks when indoors with the exceptions of eating, sleeping.
• YMCA Camp U-Nah-Li-Ya does not require proof of vaccination for children to attend camp.
• Currently, YMCA Camp U-Nah-Li-Ya does not require a negative COVID test before coming to camp. This may change pending the availability of rapid tests. Please notify camp if you are sick or believe your camper may be sick so that we can reschedule your registration.
• Whole camp activities will take place outdoors with plenty of fresh air and distance.
• Hands will be washed before each meal and frequently throughout the day.
• Equipment and supplies will be sanitized regularly.
• Meals may be re-structured as necessary to minimize the number of people in the dining hall at one time with 6 feet of distance between tables.
• Capacities may be limited to reduce the number of campers per cabin. If your family has an exposure to COVID we ask that you contact us immediately. We will rebook your camper for another session after they have quarantined for 14 days. You may choose to receive a refund instead, minus the non-refundable $100 deposit. If we have to cancel your session of camp due to COVID, we will issue a full refund for your camp fees.
