Hiding and showing camp info

To hide sections of camp info during the off-season, under the advanced tab for each section, add “hide-camp-info” to the “CSS Classes” box. Change the “excerpt” text in the page admin or under the settings tab in Elementor to change the date, price, etc. in the camps feed page. To show the info, remove the text. That’s how this section is hidden too!

All organizations will follow all COVID-19 restrictions by local, state, and Federal officials. Spending time outdoors is one of the safest places to be right now. With the fresh air, UV rays from the sun, and space to spread out, the CDC and Colorado Department of Health recommend spending time outdoors. However, this does not mitigate the risk 100%. We closely watch the numbers of cases in our area and adjust the program accordingly in 2021. All participants and staff must wear masks at all times unless they are more than 6-feet from another person, sleeping, or eating. The Colorado Department of Health allows ten people to participate in an outdoor guided activity at all levels except for purple. If El Paso county is at level yellow, a group of 25 can participate; otherwise, it will be split into smaller cohorts. Unless there is a stay-at-home order, the program will be allowed to continue. Here are some of the ways we are working to create a safer environment:
  • No more than 10 students per group
  • Activities that encourage social distancing
  • Contactless drop off and pick up
  • Daily temperature checks
  • Staff and students wearing masks 
  • Hand sanitation stations
  • Daily disinfecting of high contact surfaces and materials
  • No more than 10 students indoors at one time (except in an emergency)
  • For overnights, no more than two people per tent and will sleep head to toe.
  • Traveling in vans: less than 10 people per van, masks will be worn at all times.
Please do not attend BOLT if you have been in contact with someone who has experienced symptoms or if you have experienced symptoms. Check out this symptom tracker from the Colorado Department of Public Health. Please note: Coronavirus, COVID-19 is an extremely contagious virus that spreads easily through person-to-person contact. Federal and state authorities recommend social distancing as a means to prevent the spread of the virus. COVID-19 can lead to severe illness, personal injury, permanent disability, and death. Participating in Catamount Institute programs or accessing Catamount Institute facilities could increase the risk of contracting COVID-19. Catamount Institute in no way warrants that COVID-19 infection will not occur through participation in Catamount Institute programs or accessing Catamount Institute facilities.
