2021 Camp Lu-Jo KISMIF Covid-19 Release of Liability.
To provide a safe environment to host camp sessions in 2021, the Camp Lu-Jo KISMIF Board
of Directors have given comprehensive guidance to the session directors for diminishing the
problem of Covid-19.
We are excited to host Camp Sessions at Lu-Jo this summer and fulfill our mission of sharing
the Gospel! While we cannot guarantee Camp will be unaffected by the current pandemic
during our Camp Sessions, we have provided as many guidelines as possible, and we plan to
follow these parameters to the best of our abilities. We ask all parents and guardians to
understand the challenges which arise from a camp setting for things like: Policing social
distancing, Policing the wearing of masks if needed, Etc.
The following are some of the efforts that have been instituted for the 2021 Camp Sessions:
• Enhanced facility preparation;
• Extraordinary sanitization;
• Limitation of visitors to create a safe “bubble” for campers;
• “Entrance” health questionnaires;
• Ongoing health monitoring;
• A quarantine dorm at the ready; &
• An emphasis on outdoor activities.
The Board has given session directors and staff full confidence to conduct Camp Sessions in
the Summer of 2021. (For further parameters from the Board, please contact your session
director.) All session directors, staff, campers, their families, and potential visitors are expected
to follow the Camp Board's guidelines for Camp to remain a safe place. Session directors and
the Board will monitor changing circumstances and provide guidance to continue to diminish
risks as sessions proceed.
All Parents and Sponsors of Campers are asked to comply with the following guidelines
should they impact their camper situation:
• Be ready to pick your camper up promptly to take home and/or seek medical attention
should a sickness or some symptoms arise;
• Follow all set and announced protocols for indoor and outdoor activities at camp;
• Will communicate with the camp director and camp staff if the need arises for the
removal of a camper during the week;
• Will be forthright in answering all health monitoring questions, even in regards to
possible infection exposures;
• Will respect oneself and others regarding the sensitivity of current issues that may
arise with keeping Camp Lu-Jo a “Covid-19 prepared” environment.
Therefore, based on your comfort level, we ask you to make the family decision to send your
camper(s) to Camp Lu-Jo KISMIF this year. We will respect your decision. By signing below,
you agree to the statements above and agree to release Camp Lu-Jo KISMIF, all campers,
and all staff members from and against any and all claims for damages and liability
resulting from exposure to disease-causing organisms, such as COVID-19, and
contaminated objects, as well as personal contact associated with attending Camp Lu-Jo
and being on its property. We look forward to having campers at Camp Lu-Jo this summer!
May God bless and be your family!!
