Our Response to COVID-19
Update - December 14th
Camp Longridge exists to spread the Gospel of Christ through selfless service, innovative programming, and intentional relationships. When we wrote this mission several years ago, we prayed that our ministry would reflect this in every facet of camp life. With COVID-19, this has not changed. As we’ve adapted to living in this new normal and have the most effective ministry possible, we have taken enhanced health and safety measures to ensure we are able to fulfill our mission as fun and safe as possible.
First and foremost, we are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation as it progresses. In accordance with state and federal guidelines, we are adapting our policies of cleanliness and sanitation to go above and beyond the CDC regulations. We will continue this level of sanitation and cleanliness through the summer months as a way to lower the risk of exposure.
Because camp is still several months away, we do not yet have definitive plans for social distancing and mask requirements. But be assured that we are not taking either of these lightly. We are staying on top of any new regulations that the state of South Carolina puts out and will be adhering to their mandates. Please know we highly value the safety of all who come on our property and will do our very best to keep the risk of exposure as low as possible.
We at Camp Longridge value you and our desire is to continually work with you through this process. We know that in this time of uncertainty, a major factor in decision making is the financial commitment required for camp. We want to assure you that we completely understand and will work with you regarding deposits. We are making a full commitment that all deposits are fully refundable in the event of cancellation in COVID-19 related circumstances.
With summer camp beginning in six months, we will be closely monitoring the global situation and adapting a COVID-19 Protocol that is applicable to what the situation will reflect at that point in time. We will be releasing this protocol to you within sixty days of your start date at camp.
Until then, please know that we are excitedly preparing for your arrival this summer and cannot wait to dive into the summer of 2021 and learn what it means to Live Courageously!
Update - February 24th
Recently, we have been receiving inquiries regarding our current plan for camper health and safety for this summer. Due to the ever changing nature of the protocols, we are going to release a detailed plan for our procedures within sixty days of the first day of camp as we have said in our previous statement above. However! We have made some decisions and are releasing those protocols so that you are aware of our current policies and can share with fellow parents and/or students. You can find those below!
