Coronavirus Response

In an effort to reopen camp for our community, we have developed procedures and protocols for both rental groups and our sponsored events moving forward. With our 75 years of risk mitigation experience and input from Mississippi Department of Health, CDC, American Camping Association and the Mississippi Annual Conference Pandemic Taskforce, CLS has put together a plan to make sure that everyone who comes to camp can still have a fun and meaningful experience while mitigating as much Coronavirus exposure risk as possible. Below you will
find information describing what CLS will be doing to prepare for your group AND what
your role is as a group leader is in preventing the spread of Coronavirus while at CLS. If there are any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to reach out! We can't wait to see the great things that come from your time here at CLS!

  • Areas that are planned to be used will be cleaned and sanitized

  • We will coordinate with you maximum group sizes

  • We will discuss all of our new procedures so there are no surprises

  • Anyone who has experienced COVID-19 symptoms or has been diagnosed in the 14 days prior to your event will be asked to stay home.

  • Everyone including CLS staff will be temperature checked

  • High touch areas will be disinfected regularly

  • Cabin capacity will be cut to 50%

  • Masks will be required while indoors and in situations that 6ft distancing cannot be adequately maintained. 

  • CLS activities like the lake, challenge course, and pool have new procedures to mitigate as much exposure risk as possible 

  • There will also be special Dinning Hall procedures that we will go over with the entire group at the first meal 

  • We will inform the entire group of our new procedures so there are no surprises for anyone

After Your Event
