2021 Summer Camps & COVID-19

Here are some of the ways we will create a safe camp environment:

Mask update 2021- Based on guidance from the CDC and State of Colorado we will not require children to wear masks outdoors as the risk of transmission is low in outdoor settings. We will have campers wear masks if we need to move indoors for any reason, however this is only in case of an emergency like lightning in the area. Campers can wear masks if they feel comfortable and we will provide masks if needed.

All of the Catamount Institute staff and summer staff are fully vaccinated however some may still choose to wear a mask this summer.

  • Some of the additional steps we are taking to mitigate the possibility of transmission of diseases.
    High touch areas will be disinfected daily with a CDC approved cleaner.
  • Campers will use hand sanitizer frequently and wash hands at our eight-child handwashing station.
  • Camp activities will encourage physical distancing to the best of our ability.
  • Masks will be worn if we have to move indoors for an emergency (lightning)
  • Staff and campers will be screened daily for symptoms.
  • All staff is vaccinated

If your child has been in contact with someone who has been experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, we ask you not to send them to camp. We will provide refunds (minus a $35 processing fee) if your child is showing symptoms or has been in contact with someone with symptoms. Please use this symptom tracker for more information.

 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.

 We understand that the above statement is scary. Please know we are closely working with local health officials, county and state, to provide a safe and healthy environment for the campers. If you want to remove your child from camp, we understand this hard decision. Please fill out this form: camp canceling and refund request. You can also email us at or call us at 719-471-0910.
