The safety of campers, families and our staff is paramount to any decision we make. We want to offer a fun and engaging camp experience while still operating under social distancing guidelines.  In this light, GARNA will be making to following changes to this year’s Nature Camps.

  • All COVID Guidelines will be updated closer to the date depending on Chaffee County Public Health Guidelines.
  • Limiting camper to instructor ratio to 5:1. Total numbers with Nature Camp small-groups at one site will be kept within CO Dept. of Public Health regulations. Currently capping at 10 campers.  Campers will be split into groups of 5 campers per 1 staff, and will be distanced from other groups with limited interaction.
  • Staff, campers and parents dropping off campers must wear masks.
  • Staff and campers will complete wellness checks prior to each day. More info will be provided with a pre-camp FAQ.
  • Campers will not share materials nor snacks.
