Below are email communications that were sent to camper families via addresses provided on your registration for Summer 2022. If your registration was processed later this spring, please be sure to review these updates for any pertinent information.
June Camper Family Update
With docks in Walloon Lake and green leaves on the trees, we know summer camp is almost here!
Here are a few reminders and helpful tips for your arrival whether it be in June, July or August. Check out our Camp Reminders page on the website where you can see the recording of our new family webinar, find notes about pick-up and drop-off, and more!
Packing List can also be found on our website HERE. Please be sure to assist your camper with packing and ensure no prohibited items are brought to camp. This year, we are encouraging all campers to bring reusable water bottles.
Camp Store will be back this year! We will be offering a more limited selection of items including Camp Daggett tie dye shirts, cool new T-shirt designs, and more! It will be available to families during check-in and we will be accepting cash or checks.
Camper Health is a priority, and we work ensure that your camper has a healthy visit to camp. To help us with that, please be sure to:
- Have a complete and detailed medical form on file in Camp Brain
- Provide ALL camper medication in their original containers to our Health Officer at check-in.
- Prepare your camper to expect to wear sunscreen, put on bug spray, and rinse off after being in the lake to reduce the risk of swimmer’s itch.
COVID-19 Protocols were shared in a previous email and can be found HERE. We are excited that this approach will allow for less mask wearing than last summer and bring back full camp activities. Please follow these pre-arrival steps to support a healthy Camp Daggett community all summer:
- Avoid activities with moderate-to-high risk of COVID-19 exposure 7 days before arriving.
- Track your camper’s temperature and symptoms 7 days before arriving. A completed tracking form, found HERE, will be required at check-in
- Do not attend camp if your camper has symptoms of illness, tests positive for COVID-19, or has been exposed to someone with COVID-19. Let us know and we will work with you on a refund.
- A negative COVID-19 test result is required at check-in. This can be obtained within 48 hours of your camper’s check-in time from a provider. You will need to be able to show the results at check in. We will also have rapid testing available at Camp Daggett at no additional cost. Keep in mind, this process may add 20-30 minutes to your check-in experience.
Check-In: will be staggered alphabetically by last name. Please arrive at your designated time. If you need your arrival time adjusted, please let us know ahead of time.
2022 Sunday Check-in Times
2:00pm, Wilderness Campers
Over the next two weeks, we will be training new and returning camp staff to be great role models for your campers including our waterfront staff going through American Red Cross Waterfront Lifeguard Certification. We can’t wait for campers to start arriving June 19th!
Late April Camper Family Update
We appreciate your patience and trust as we reviewed the most up-to-date recommendations for COVID-19 protocols this summer. Through reviewing recommendations from the CDC, American Camp Association, the Alliance for Camp Health, and Michigan Camp Licensing we have developed a comprehensive set of measures.
We have taken some increased precautions as compared to last year. This is not a result of last year’s procedures being ineffective. Rather, more pre-arrival and registration screening will help us feel confident reintroducing parts of the camp day greatly missed last year—meals all together, free water, and free land periods.
2022 Camp Daggett COVID-19 Protocols for Summer Camp The full document is linked here and on our website. In order to be prepared for your camper’s week of camp, please review it in full. Important things to note include:
- COVID-19 Vaccinations are strongly encouraged but not required for campers this summer.
- Prearrival Expectations include avoiding moderate-high risk activities, tracking symptoms 7 days prior to arrival, and staying home if ill or exposed to COVID-19.
- COVID-19 Testing will be required for all campers, regardless of vaccination status. This can be done by 48 hours before arrival –OR- tests will be available at check-in for a fee. Results must be verifiable and cannot be from an at-home test.
- Check in will happen at scheduled times, have limitations on who is dropping off, and involve additional screening for COVID-19 and illness.
- During the Camp Session campers will need to wear masks during very limited times, spend most indoor time with their cabin group, and have the opportunity to participate in full camp activities outdoors.
- Specific steps for confirmed cases are outlined in the protocols including when families would be notified of a case of COVID-19 at camp.
