If any changes to the list occur prior to the start of camp, a new list and updates will be posted here.

Please note the following:

  • No Laundry - To minimize handling of camper clothes and equipment, Belknap will NOT be offering laundry for sessions that are 1 or 2 weeks. We will provide laundry for 4-week campers.
  • Mask type requirements are outlined as of the current CDC guidance.
  • Water bottles with strap or carrying device are required. Water fountains will be closed to minimize transmission of COVID. Instead, campers will be asked to carry their water bottles to program periods. Water bottle fill stations are located throughout camp.

Drop-Off and Pick-Up

Belknap plans on coordinated efforts to minimize exposure and risk on these high traffic days. Families will be made aware of exact pick-up and drop off times and procedures for campers and guardians. Information will be posted here.

Camp Life During COVID

Belknap’s mission remains unchanged. Belknap is working on modifications to the property/facilities and program in 2021 to enhance safety and still preserve the core principles of Belknap life. The pictures below will be updated as we make changes around camp.

Belknap will be providing more information at a later date about type and number of masks to pack for camp. Please note that campers and staff will be unmasked for sleeping, eating, showering and swimming.

COVID Testing

Camp Belknap plans to use COVID testing as a part of our 2021 plan for entry and admittance to camp, diagnostic (symptoms) and ongoing monitoring, The timing, type of testing, and logistics are being reviewed and will be announced as decisions are made. Types of tests and criteria for their use are continuing to evolve and we want to ensure that we are implementing best practices.

Response to Positive Test

Working with Belknap’s medical advisory group, we are developing a detailed plan for the potential of a symptomatic individual and/or positive test at camp. This plan will include isolation, quarantine, contact tracing, and care of campers/staff.


Permission is required to visit camp during the non-summer months/“off season.” Please click below for detailed information on visiting camp. When camp is in session, for the safety of our campers and staff, visitors will be strictly limited. Updated information regarding this policy will be provided here.
