Staying Safe At Soccer Camp
**Updated May 25, 2022**
2022 will be our third summer living with Covid-19. After not being permitted to operate in 2020, we were able to open and operate successfully in 2021, albeit with many restrictions. The approval of Covid vaccines for children changed the landscape again. Maintaining the health and safety of our community is at the core of what we do, and we believe requiring vaccines will serve this purpose. Not only will a vaccinated camp safeguard health, but it will also enable us to run with minimal restrictions.
For Summer 2022, vaccines will be required as follows:
- Campers under 12 years of age will be required to receive two doses of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine 21 days apart. The second dose must be received at least two weeks before arrival at camp.
- Campers 12 and older will be required to receive two doses of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine and receive a booster dose at least 5 months after the second vaccine dose. A twice-vaccinated individual who is less than five months from their second vaccine need not receive a booster.
On May 19, 2022, the United States Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommended boosters for 5-11-year-olds. Those boosters, which differ from boosters for 12-17-year-olds, are not yet widely available. We strongly recommend that all families get their campers boosted, if eligible; however, we are not requiring a booster for those 11 and under.
Proof of administration of required COVID-19 vaccines and booster must be submitted before arrival at the Academy via the CampMinder system. There will be no religious or medical exemptions to our vaccination policy.
In addition, all campers and staff will be required to provide proof of a negative PCR or Molecular COVID test, completed sometime after 12pm EST on the Wednesday prior to arrival.
Linked below, we have developed our 2022 COVID-19 Response Plan, which includes protocols and procedures for maximizing the health and well-being of our community in summer 2022.
