SUMMER 2021- COVID-19 INFORMATION   UPDATED 04-13-20


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 on 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, which is currently under review by state health officials.   That plan includes all currently required interventions for screening, hand hygiene, use of face masks at appointed times, cohorting, sanitizing, ventilation, and physical distancing.  While you can expect more details in the coming weeks, listed below you will find some highlighted changes and additions that will help your family make plans and decisions as you look toward Summer 2021.  Please note all information found here is subject to change.  


Current state guidelines can be found here under SAFER AT HOME: PHASE THREE OVERNIGHT SUMMER CAMPS.


For questions regarding our COVID-19 protocols, we ask that you first read all updates posted here.  For further questions, please contact us at officebrcc@gmail.com.  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.


  • The Registration Process

    In order to maintain cohorts 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. Returning camp families will receive a link to register the week of April 26th.  Registration for these families will begin May 1st.  As always, 50% of the registration fee is required for a reservation.  


    Bland Scholarship Deadline is Friday, April 23rd. 

  • screening requirements

    Included in the State of Virginia's mandatory requirements for the reopening of overnight summer camps is, "the requirement for a negative molecular test within seven days prior to the beginning of camp, or a 14 day symptom screening for the camper and all persons in the Family as defined in Executive Order 72 that have contact with the camper.  Campers utilizing symptoms screening must restrict their close contacts to those inside their Family as defined in Executive Order 72 for the duration of the 14 day period."   


    We have been advised by VDH that campers who are still attending school within the 14 day period prior to arriving at camp will not be eligible for the 14 day screening and will instead require a test.  


    *Screening forms will be provided by BRCC at time of registration.


    We are working with local health officials to gather information regarding the availability of molecular testing in the localities of the campers we serve.  Any helpful information we receive will be posted here.

  • 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.


    Please 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 have 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 tentatively scheduled for Saturday, July 17th.


    Please note while many of the same protocols apply to Day Camp, it is a separate event not defined under the Mandatory Requirements for Overnight Camps.   


    Please expect more information in the coming months regarding a different screening and drop off process for this day. 


    Registration for these first time campers is set to begin June 1st.
