COVID-19 Modifications for Social Distancing

Our groups will be constantly encouraged to spread out, (practice “social distancing”).  Our games and activities will be adjusted as needed, so that no one will need to touch each other.

Our daily guideline will be a no touching policy, so as not to spread any germs. Our group sizes
will be smaller and consistent.

a.  Be Outside. The air is fresh, we have hundreds of acres of God’s creation to
explore. Fresh air, sunshine, humidity, and heat are all things that we have plenty
of here in the Poconos. We believe that kids in the outdoors can stay healthier and
happier.

b. Scheduled Activity Times – Activities will be more strictly scheduled to limit
interaction between groups and allow for sanitizing equipment as needed.
