COVID-19

Safety

We know that some elements of camp this summer will look different. We will follow the standards and protocols set by the American Camp Association (ACA), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and our state and local health departments. This page will be updated continuously as specific operational and programming changes are made.

 

These are the questions we're hearing most frequently from camper families. If you have additional questions, contact our Registrar, Jessica, at Registrar@NLOM.org or 402-944-2544.

Is your refund policy any different this summer because of COVID-19?


For the 2021 summer camp season, all deposits are fully refundable. As always, we are happy to work with families to reschedule for a later week in the season, if the originally scheduled week doesn’t work out. Contact our Registrar, Jessica, at Registrar@NLOM.org or 402-944-2544 with questions or to reschedule.




How will you determine if camp will be held?


Living with the new reality of COVID-19, some elements of camp will look different. However, we are committed to providing significant experiences to all campers this summer. We will follow the recommendations of the Panhandle Public Health District. We are also in consultation with multiple local physicians who serve on and consult with the NLOM Board of Directors. The NLOM Board of Directors in consultation with these health experts, will determine if adjustments to the schedule are needed.




If a change to the schedule happens, will it be week-by-week, month-by-month, or the whole summer?


We will follow the recommendations of state and local health departments. If necessary, the NLOM Board of Directors will make changes to the 2021 Summer Camp schedule on a week-by-week basis.




Will there be any changes to village or "cabin" size or how many campers interact closely each day at camp?


The specific size of the villages and how many campers sleep in the same bunkroom, as well as how camper groups interact with each other, will be determined as we get closer to summer. We expect these topics to be addressed in the standards and protocols set by the American Camp Association (ACA), which will be released in the coming months. We will update this website as soon as specifics are determined.




Are campers going to wear masks?

All registered campers will receive specific safety information via email prior to check in for their specific week at camp.

What will you do if a camper begins to have symptoms at camp?


Nebraska Lutheran Outdoor Ministries employs a registered nurse to supervise all summer camp healthcare. Along with recommendations from the ACA and CDC, they will be instrumental in drafting our protocol for if a camper shows COVID-19 symptoms while at camp this summer.
