Every year, we consult healthcare professionals, our national standards, and our local camp professionals in order to deliver on making our camp a safe and amazing place for all the people who participate in our programs. Residential camp has always been about close-knit community, so we make it our business to review and implement the best practices for health screenings and healthcare policies available to us each season.

Presently, we are monitoring the situation surrounding COVID-19 in the United States and in the local communities we serve. As the situation stands, we are continuing to plan for camp without interruption. We have communicable disease plans in place and will revise those plans based on the latest advice from public health authorities as new information becomes available.

To keep you well-informed, Camp Ladore will continue to communicate with parents and staff through our website, social media presence, local Salvation Army corps, and service centers with the latest updates as they pertain to camp.

Please continue to follow the guidelines of the CDC and your personal care provider as we navigate this difficult season. We look forward with hope to another successful camping season.

God Bless you all!
