We are excited to welcome back our campers this season.  Each day we are learning more about what this summer will look like.  As we confirm information and seek clarity with each change to the guidelines, we want to pass this information on to you.  Per the State of Virginia's Mandatory Requirements for Overnight Summer Camps, Blue Ridge Christian Camp has developed an extensive Communicable Disease Plan.   Below you will find the latest updates.  Our testing and screening prior to camp remains a requirement.  Essentially, our plan includes all currently advised interventions for screening, hand hygiene,  sanitizing, and ventilation.  Because of all these measures we are happy to report campers can be together more, as we can choose to employ the use of cohorts less in an outdoor setting.  Please send masks as previously planned.  However, please know we have built a plan that will allow for very limited need or use of them when all other interventions can be in effect. 

All information found here is subject to change. For questions regarding our COVID-19 protocols, we ask that you first read all updates posted here.  For further questions, please contact us at  We are grateful for your patience as we seek clarification and get the answers you need.  

While there are a lot of changes surrounding efforts for the physical safety of our campers, please know we are committed to providing a meaningful camp experience. Our campers' spiritual health remains a priority.

As asked by the Virginia Department of Health, we have implemented the following plan to decrease the risk of infectious campers and staff entering Blue Ridge Christian Camp. 

  • The Registration Process

    In order to maintain cohorts at necessary times and to properly staff these groups, we have reduced occupancy for each of our sessions.  Please be mindful that registration spots are more limited as we will operate close to half capacity of a normal summer.  Also, due to the screening process listed below, registration deadlines for each session will be posted and cannot be changed.  As always, 50% of the registration fee is required for a reservation.  Full refunds will be issued for any COVID related cancellation on the part of the camper or camp.

    Registration for each camp will close 14 days prior to check-in.

  • TESTING & screening requirements

    Registration requires one of the following:

    -a negative viral test within 1-3 days* prior to the beginning of camp or

    -14 day symptom screening for the camper and all persons in their household.  

    ***Day Campers will only be required to complete a Check-In Screening with a  temperature check on the day of camp when they check in.***

    Our current Pre-Screening Form can be downloaded here.

    *For campers choosing the testing option, please note the change released in the state's latest guidelines, which previously stated 1-7 days.  It is now recommended that testing be done 1 to 3 days prior to check-in.

  • check in

    Expect a minimal contact check in procedure.  Campers will need to travel to camp with members of their household only.  We will not be able to accept campers in carpool groups, church vans, or other alternate arrangements.  Families will be greeted at their vehicle.  Once a staff member has received the testing or pre-screening form, and the camper's temperature has been checked, they may unload.  A team leader from your camper's cohort will help them unpack and get settled.  To reduce traffic, wait times, and to help campers receive individualized help, check-in times will be staggered and assigned for families.

    Be assured that prior to arrival we will communicate with you every step of the way.  All check-in communication will be done in advance by phone.  Those who indicate allergies, use of medication, or health concerns will be offered a scheduled call with our Health Officer.  Please note we will not be able to conference or collect additional monies at check-in.  

  • day camp

    Day Camp is now scheduled for Saturday, July 17th.

    Registration will open Friday, June 11th. 

    Day Campers will NOT be required to test or do the 14 day screening.  We do ask that families use precaution and campers will complete a simple screening and temperature check upon arrival.  

    Check in will begin at 9:30 a.m.  Check out will be at 3:00 p.m.

    Campers will enjoy a lesson, arts & crafts time, water games, swimming, music, and more.
