After wonderful and successful summers during Covid these past two years, what can we expect at camp this summer and what is camp doing to mitigate the risks?

We operate our camp using our three guiding principles: ‘Safe. Fun. Jewish.’

The CGI Covid-19 Policies and Trip Schedule will be based upon the updated CDC, LA County and American Camp Association guidelines. We will continue to monitor their updates and plan accordingly as we get closer to the start of camp.

We had a wonderful and successful summer in both 2020 and 2021 with the guidelines set in place and we are looking forward to another wonderful and safe summer together.
 
 Here are the policies we had in place last summer: 
  • There was no trips scheduled initially, however we introduced trips for the older bunks as the summer went along to locations that we felt we safe and withing the Guidelines set in place, such as trips to the beach and an empty Dodger Stadium Tour. We are looking forward to schedule trips this upcoming summer as well.  

  • Each camper was assigned to a bunk / cohort and abided by the social distancing regulations from the other bunks / cohorts. We limited the size of each group. 

  • A large part of the camp day was spent outdoors. We put up additional shade spots.

  • We were not allowing visitors or parents on to the campus.

  • Campers will be picked up by a staff member from the car.

  • There was an additional waiver that addresses the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • If you, your spouse or other members of your family had a temperature or are sick, we respectfully requested that you keep your child home.

Will my child/children have to wear a mask all day?

We will monitor and follow the latest LA County Guidelines as we approach the summer months. 

Will lunch be available?

Yes, Hot Lunches will be available in individually packed containers.
