Cabin Rental Safety Plan

Cabin Rental Safety Plan

Camp Awana is committed to the safety and well-being of every child, staff and guest.  We have been and will continue to implement the highest standards of safety and cleanliness as we work with closely with The Health Dept and the CDC. 


We have developed a plan for the preparation of camp while maintaining the highest standard of precaution so that everyone is as safe as they can be.  These policies and procedures will be updated as more information is available.


Planning Team

Camp Awana continues to plan and review our health policies and procedures with volunteer health professions who have teamed up with us, as well as the CDC and other governing authorities. We have a healthy working relationship with our county health department (Washington County) as well as our local hospitals, clinics, and EMS. We desire to provide the best care to all of our guests.


It Starts with You at Home

We know that you put the health and safety of your family at the top of your list, and we also want to make sure that all families and guests have a safe and fun time at Camp Awana. If you are not able to meet current health standards, we would ask that you keep yourselves home for the safety of all of the other families and guests. If you are unsure whether you should attend camp, you can call our office prior to your arrival at camp, and we will work with you on the best plan possible. 

Health Questionnaire

Once on camp grounds, if you or anyone in your family is found to be sick or showing signs of sickness, please inform us. We will help you to arrive at the best possible choice for all.  That form is available for you to see here.

Camp Will Look Different

As we all adjust, you are going to notice camp is the same, yet a bit different. Because we are receiving permission from the government to open camp with restrictions, we are rethinking how we offer activities, food service, and more. You will notice new policies for your safety and some new procedures like getting your food to go, eating around our new picnic tables, sign-ups for some activities to better space our guests out, etc. Please know that camp will still be an incredible experience that is safe, fun, effective, and affordable as all of our attractions are free.

Hand Sanitation

Hand sanitation and soap dispensers will be in each cabin, meeting room, in common areas, and meal areas. This will help provide many opportunities for all our guests to maintain a higher level of health and cleanliness.

Physical Distancing 

We are setting limits on the number of guests in all spaces of camp, mitigating large groups, and limiting the number of guests per cabin. We want to encourage families to continue to do many of the things you have normally been doing in your home but here at camp you have 125 acres of land to practice safe, physical distancing. Enjoying campfires, adequate space on the waterfront, wide open fields and plenty of trails to hike and explore.


Keeping It Clean

Our summer staff will perform daily cleanings in all common spaces using EPA disinfectant products. They will be performing this task multiple times each day in our bathrooms and most used common areas. Our staff will be trained in these procedures prior to the start of camp and will be held accountable through daily check lists. A deep cleaning of all bathrooms, offices, and shared spaces will occur at the end of every week. Beyond our normal disinfectant products, we will be implementing additional technology to ensure cleaning of all surfaces. To the best of our ability, activity areas will be sanitized between each activity or group (example: helmets for zip line, gym equipment, miniature golf equipment, etc.)


Checking In 

When each guest checks in at our office, they will be given a manual for those that are renting cabins. All guests will receive updated schedules, maps, and updated information on appropriate health standards and expectations. This is also when you will pay your balance and finish any paperwork that has not been completed.


Food Service

We are working with the WI State Health Inspector to make sure we follow all food service guidelines. The State is developing protocols for our beverage dispensers, program kitchen, specialty food area, and outdoor grills. If you purchase our meal plan, meals will be served in a “grab and go” fashion. You will have many places to choose from to eat safely. 

Moving Forward

We will continue to evaluate and update the details of each category and make any additional changes according to CDC or local guidelines. We are also reviewing and implementing suggested guidelines from the Dept. of Agriculture, Trade, and Consumer Protecting. Click here to see their suggested procedures and recommendations.

Please continue to join us in prayer for every camper, staff member, family, and church partner who will be a part of Camp Awana this summer!
