CDC releases new COVID-19 guidelines for summer camps

As temperatures continue to warm up, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention released a new set of guidelines for summer camps. Upon opening for in-person activities, the CDC stressed the importance of masking up, social distancing, and, if eligible, being vaccinated.  The CDC’s new recommendations include:

  • Engaging in outdoor activities as much as possible and increasing ventilation for indoor activities.
    • When possible, sports and other athletic abilities should be done outdoors, wearing a mask.
    • Avoid playing close-contact or indoor sports.
  • Stagger use of common areas.
  • Physical distancing at least three feet, six feet if eating and drinking.
  • Cohorting, or maintaining the same small groups throughout the camp.
  • Limit shared objects.



The CDC emphasized that these new guidelines are not meant to replace any state, or local safety laws camps are required to follow.
