Covid-19 Safety Plan

Introduction 

Safety is a cornerstone of Girl Scouting, and we will continue to put the health and safety of our campers and volunteers first throughout the summer camp season. We are regularly monitoring COVID-19 updates and recommendations from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA), Girl Scouts of Northern California (GSnorCal), the American Camp Association (ACA), and state and local authorities, and will continue to adjust our guidelines and processes with the goal of providing a safe and fun outdoor experience. 

Diablo Day Camp (DDC) usually serves over 2,000 participants each summer. In 2020, the DDC Committee voted unanimously to cancel camp for the summer. All camp fees paid by participants were returned unless individuals chose to donate summer 2020 camp fees back to Diablo Day Camp. For summer 2021, each session directing team was able to choose to offer a session or not. Five directing teams agreed to proceed with registration. The DDC Committee formed a COVID-19 Task Force. The Task Force has been meeting weekly to discuss all aspects of camp and how to run sessions safely. This document is a result of those discussions. The Task Force was guided by many resources, including publications and online information from the sources mentioned above. 

This Diablo Day Camp COVID-19 Safety Plan provides detailed information to authorities and the day camp community that supports our ability to safely run camp. With this plan in place, our campers will be able to participate in sessions in the summer of 2021. We are ready to welcome campers, elves, adult volunteers (and their sons, if registered) to camp in June and July. The Diablo Day Camp COVID-19 Safety Plan has been developed by a wide variety of camp volunteers with experience in medicine, archery and training. 

All information presented in this resource is subject to change. Guidelines and requirements may be changed and/or added at a later time pending changes in recommendations from the CDC, GSUSA, ACA, and state and local authorities.

GSNorCal and DDC Contact Information 

The DDC Administrator is the main COVID-19 liaison assigned to support health and wellness needs at the site. Each individual session will also have a COVID-19 liaison to support that session. The COVID-19 liaisons serve as designated volunteers who communicate directly with participant families in the event that a participant displays COVID-19 symptoms. Our DDC Administrator is the point of contact with the Contra Costa County Public Health Department and Girl Scouts of Northern California.
