COVID Policy

In an effort to run an event that is as safe, welcoming, and as accessible as possible, particularly for immunocompromised members of our community, the BADCamp team felt it important to set some expectations of behavior in advance.

We considered many options, examining policies adopted by other camps, local laws, and the spread and transmissibility of current COVID strains and variants.

While we aren’t enforcing testing, we will make rapid tests available at the event, and provide stickers to help you express your safety preferences and negative testing status for those who choose to do so.

While vaccination is a personal choice, we will be adopting the following protocols at the event.  


BADCamp COVID-19 protocols

  • Wearing a face mask at all times while indoors on campus.
    • Masks are not required outside as long as social distancing comfort levels are maintained.
  • Performing a daily self-check of COVID-19 symptoms, including:
    • Cough, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, fever or chills, muscle or body aches, vomiting or diarrhea, and new loss of taste or smell.
  • Practicing frequent hand-washing and use of hand sanitizer.
  • Wearable indicators of Social Distance Comfort Levels will be provided (and encouraged) for attendees to wear onsite. Attendees are asked to respect each other’s comfort level on social distance.

Sick, been exposed, or awaiting test results?

Quarantining or isolating when an infection is suspected, when exposure is suspected, and/or awaiting the results of a COVID-19 test.

  • If an attendee has been fully vaccinated and is in close contact with someone who tests positive for COVID-19, that attendee does not need to quarantine unless symptoms are present. At this time, a COVID test should be administered.

If a test is positive, the participant cannot return to the camp and must leave the venue as soon as possible.

As protocols change or new circumstances develop, we will update this page with the latest information. We reserve the right to deny entrance to camp if an attendee refuses to follow the protocols in place.

Let's all do our part and have a great and safe camp!
