To Our Camp Family and Friends,
We know you’re concerned about the spread of COVID-19 and how it will impact summer camp. This situation reminds us of how important the outdoors is to our community.
Camp Grier is committed to maintaining a safe, clean, and healthy environment for our staff and campers. In coordination with other overnight camps across North Carolina, local health departments, and state officials we’re closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and making necessary changes to our screening, cleaning, and programming routines.
This summer we are making several program changes that will allow us to serve a limited number of campers, provide opportunities for families to enjoy camp in safe social circles, and carry out our mission responsibly during the current health crisis. Our programming will follow State and Local guidelines as they become available.
Check back here regularly for updated program changes, procedures, and announcements.
The Camp Grier Crew
Currently, we have made the decision to operate our Adventurer (Rising 7-9 grade) and Navigator (Rising 10-12 grade) programs as scheduled. We will also operate our Specialty Camps (Equestrian, Farm, and Mountain Bike) as scheduled. We have decided to cancel our Explorer (Rising 2nd-3rd grade) and Discoverer (Rising 4th-Rising 6th grade) programs.
For these families, and any family looking for a responsible outdoor experience close to home, we are offering a Family Overnight Camp and Family Day Camp option. These options will be available throughout the summer and fall of 2020 and also into 2021.
At this time we believe overnight camps will be included in Governor Cooper's Phase II reopening plan. We are waiting operational guidelines and procedures from the State of North Carolina and Department of Health and Human Services officials. We will continue to update this site as new information becomes available.
Your well-being is very important to us.
We have taken reasonable additional measures in an effort to reduce exposure to COVID-19 for all of the Camp Grier community.
COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. An inherent risk* of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any place where people are present.
While any person is at risk of potential exposure, senior citizens and guests with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
By coming to Camp Grier you are voluntarily assuming all risks related to exposure to COVID-19 and any other communicable disease.
*An inherent risk is a risk that cannot be eliminated.
