2023 Volunteer F.A.Q.s

  • Will training for Camp be virtual or in-person?

    • Training for Camp will be in-person this year and is mandatory for all. Because of our evolving Covid protocols and procedures at camp, we would love for everyone to attend Staff Training Day for the bonding, learning and mental-health focused sections that are new and different this year!

    • Date: August 12th, 2023

  • Will staff need to quarantine before in-person Camp?

    • We recommend that all participants maintain a mindfulness about their interactions prior to attending in person Camp and complete a daily health screening to track symptoms that coincide with COVID-19. We will not be deciding on our 2023 camp Covid-19 policies until summertime.

COVID-19 Protocols

  • Will staff need to be vaccinated?

  • Will staff need to be tested before in-person Camp? What is the protocol for someone showing symptoms on the island? Are the children required to be vaccinated? 

    • See photo below.​

  • Should volunteer staff with health concerns apply this year?

    • The CDC and our medical team have compiled a list of health conditions that may be at higher risk for complications caused by COVID-19 (see below). For this reason, we recommend that volunteers with health concerns consider choosing the virtual option of Camp this summer. That being said, it's up to you.

      • Health Conditions with an increased risk of illness due to COVID-19:

        • 65 or older (the risk of severe illness increases linearly with age)

        • Cancer

        • Chronic kidney or Liver disease

        • COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), Pulmonary Hypertension, Cystic fibrosis, or Pulmonary fibrosis

        • Coronary artery disease, cyanotic heart disease (with a resting oxygen saturation of less that 92), Hypertension, or cardiomyopathies

        • Immunocompromised state from solid organ transplant

        • Obesity

        • Pregnant

        • Sickle cell disease or Thalassemia

        • Smoking

        • Type I or II diabetes mellitus and/or on Diabetes medication

        • Asthma (on medication within the past 2 years)

        • Cerebrovascular disease

        • Hypertension

        • High blood pressure or on High Blood Pressure medication

        • Immunocompromised state

        • Neurologic conditions such as dementia

  • What's new about the background check?

    • Our priority is the safety and wellbeing of our campers. To ensure this, everyone who works at camp undergoes a thorough background check. Bill AB506 requires all Childcare Organizations to receive LiveScan (fingerprinting) background checks for all staff/volunteers. These background checks last up to 5 years.

    • If you have been staffed by CdC, we will be in contact about this.

    • Also, if you are a teacher, nurse or have any other profession that itself requires LiveScan results, you cannot forego the Camp del Corazon LiveScan, as LiveScan is location-specific.
