5/19 DCCYC COVID-19 update

Dear Parents, 

As the DCCYC board continues to discuss camp matters, we have run into different challenges. Below (in red) is the latest update from our ongoing discussions on camp safety policies.

Please note that we will not keep our cabin capacity at 50%, as we intended. This was difficult to implement as we have a 2 adult leaders per cabin policy for the safety of minors. Depending on our final counselor-to-camper ratio, many cabins will need to exceed our initial 50% capacity or need to be at full capacity. 

Please see below for an UPDATED summary of the board discussions regarding Covid-19:

Agreement so far: 

  1. Hand-sanitizing encouraged and provided. 
  2. All participants are required to wear masks while indoors.
  3. Daily temperature checks.
  4. Parents to sign covid release, acknowledging risks of sending child to camp.
  5. Social distancing will be encouraged, but not enforced
  6. Cabin capacity will no longer be limited
  7. No requirement for proof of vaccine or negative covid test  prior to camp. Parents and campers are required to turn in a covid-19 questionnaire before boarding the bus and campers are encouraged to be careful before camp. 

In Agreement but not finalized:

  1. Camp cohorts: Campers will be placed into cohorts with their cabin members during bedtime and meal times. Cabin members will be assigned a dining table. Cabins and Dining tables reserved only for members in the cohort.
  1. In the event of Covid-19 symptoms, campers with symptoms will be isolated from the rest of the camp. The entire cohort will be quarantined in the cabin until rapid antigen tests can be administered and parents informed. If any camper or staff tests positive for covid-19, the whole cohort will be sent home. 

Parents will be required to pick campers up from Lakeview if Covid-19 symptoms are obvious (loss of taste) or fever lasting more than a day. Parents will be required to pick campers up from camp, if the camper is in a cohort with any member testing positive for covid-19. 

  1. Transportation: Buses will be at full capacity to and from Lakeview. Masks will be required. Campers will be encouraged to have a hearty breakfast and since masks will be required the whole way, campers will be encouraged to eat before and after the bus ride. Bus will depart at a later time than previous years. 
  1. Specific Camp Activities: All activities will follow general camp guidelines. Participants will be required to wear masks indoors (includes basketball), but social distancing will not be enforced. 

We will send out the DCCYC covid-19 release form as soon as it is finalized. We are also attaching DCBC’s general release form to be filled in and turned in along with the Lakeview and DCCYC release forms.

Once again, before sending your teenager to camp, we ask that you carefully evaluate the safety risk/danger to your family or those in your household, particularly to those who are unvaccinated and/or part of the vulnerable population. If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to reach out to clement@dcbcsite.org or call 214-663-9489.

DCCYC UPDATE & REGISTRATION INFO

This past Thursday, 5/8/2021, the DCCYC Board met and agreed to put more safeguards for camp in place. We will have ongoing discussions in the coming weeks to discuss Covid-19 safety procedures. 

With the Board’s willingness to implement safety measures, DCBC will participate in DCCYC this year. Before registering, we ask that you evaluate the safety risk/danger to your family or those in your household, particularly to those who are unvaccinated and/or part of the vulnerable population.

Registration information:

You can register your teen and pay online at www.dccyc.org. If your family has a financial need, please email clement@dcbcsite.org for a scholarship form before registering your teens.

  1. Early bird registration ends on May 16. To lock in the early bird price, pay before May 17. After the 17th, you will have to pay the regular registration rate. 
  2. Release forms do not need to be turned in at the time of payment. 
  3. Please print and physically turn in release forms to Clement’s mailbox in the church office.
    Note: due to Covid-19, there may be more release forms to come. To help expedite the process, wait to turn in all release forms at the same time.

The DCCYC board and leaders will do our best to enforce safety measures. At the same time, we humbly acknowledge the difficulty in the task. Please pray for wisdom and unity among the leaders, for the safety of everyone going and for God to be gracious to work mightily at DCCYC this year.
