We're asking campers and staff to work together prior to camp to help ensure a safe week for all. To read the details of the mandatory pre-arrival symptom screening and pre-arrival testing, click HERE.
Camp Life During COVID
SPAM Camp remains committed to its mission and is mindful of creating an environment that is safe for campers health and also consistent with its program. This year's camp will require flexibility from campers and staff as we navigate a new season together.
In accordance with the State of New Hampshire’s COVID guidelines and to help minimize the risk of exposure to the virus, we cannot allow visitors to participate in any aspect of the camp program, except on an as-needed basis. Any questions about the policy may be directed to the Directors. Any changes to the policy will be posted here.
Attendance Minimum & Maximum
Due to capacity limitations, we’re only able to enroll a maximum of 60 campers in Sports and Music Camp 2021. Once we reach capacity, campers will be added to a waiting list in case space becomes available.
Due to the testing and screening requirements, registration will close 10 days prior to camp on Thursday, June 17 at 11:59 PM. We are unable to accept late registrations.
For staffing and budget reasons, we will also have a minimum enrollment of 40 campers to operate camp this year. If we do not reach our minimum enrollment by Saturday, June 12 we will notify parents and refunds will be issued.
Drop-Off & Pick-Up
In order to create a helpful and safe environment, we have modified our drop-off and pick-up plans. Parents can find this information in the emails received after registering, but you can also read about it HERE. We will communicate any changes via email from our Registrar.
SPAM is asking all campers and staff to wear masks except with in their cabins, while eating, or when sleeping. As recommendations are updated SPAM will also be updating the acting policy accordingly.
Due to the pandemic, we’re instituting a generous refund policy if a camper must cancel his/her registration or leave early due to a COVID-19 exposure or diagnosis.
Up to and including June 17 (10 days before camp): full refund (including deposit)
June 18-27 (within 10 days of camp): full refund, less the $75 deposit.
Monday: 75% refund of total amount paid
Tuesday: 50% refund of total amount paid
Wednesday: 25% refund of total amount paid
Our desire is to communicate as clearly as possible given the changing circumstances and guidelines. For questions regarding the 2021 SPAM program or for information regarding registration, please contact our registrar at email@example.com.
All campers are required to submit a negative PCR COVID-19 test prior to attending camp. We'll also be testing on arrival. The only exceptions are for those who have received the COVID-19 vaccine or have tested positive for COVID within the past 90 days prior to camps start. Please read the details HERE.
Response to Positive Test
Working with SPAM's medical staff, we are developing a detailed plan for the potential of a symptomatic individual and/or positive test at camp. This plan will include isolation, quarantine, contact tracing, and care of campers/staff.
