COVID-19 & Camp Reed FAQ
Washington has released guidance for summer camps. As required by the Washington State Outdoor Recreation COVID-19 Requirements, YMCA Camp Reed has developed a COVID-19 Safety Plan; please use the link here to view our safety plan, specific to the operations during the 2021 summer. As this is a fluid situation, this document may require updating throughout the summer season to meet the requirements set forth by Washington. Below are some highlighted answers to those guidelines and frequently asked questions about COVID-19. We will continually update all of our participants on our COVID-19 policy as we approach summer. If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Camp Reed Office at 509 777 9622 or via email.
- How will YMCA Camp Reed be different this year?
- Camp Reed will always be the best, and we plan to deliver on our mission no different than any other summer. With that being said, some changes we do know of will include smaller group and cabin sizes, eating in shifts, less all-camp activities, and mask wearing. We will still be able to have skits, free time and units, and other camp staples. Now more than ever, we will practice an “It’s the Best” attitude.
- Will the campers have fun at Camp?
- Yes, of course! What makes Camp so special is our incredible staff and their ability to form a strong relationship with campers. Our staff has been waiting for two years to deliver the magic of Camp. All of us at Camp Reed are so excited to see campers this summer and create the fun that we all missed.
- Will masks be required?
- Yes, face masks will be worn as directed by the ACA, SRHD, and Washington State guidelines. Facial coverings are required to be always worn by all staff and campers, and anyone else present at the Camp, except for eating, drinking, brushing teeth, or sleeping. Exceptions allowed for specific outdoor activities in guidelines such as sporting activities, outdoor recreation, and water recreation.
- Will the YMCA be providing masks to campers?
- No, campers should plan to bring 3-5 reusable masks for the week. We will practice healthy masking practices by washing our masks.
- How will arrivals and departures happen?
- Due to the new guidance, we are limiting the number of people who enter Camp. We are planning for a staggered check-in and check-out based on ages. Our check-in and check-out will model something similar to current school check-ins, with a drive-up and drop-off, screening, and pre-screen turn-in sheet. Age & times will be announced closer to the start of Camp. We will also be creating an instructional video for all families to have a visual aid for what they can expect at camp arrival and departure.
- Will there be Saturday Store?
- No, there will not be Saturday Store for summer 2021. For summer 2021, Camp ends on Friday afternoon. We will build in ample opportunities for campers to buy apparel at the end of the week. Refunds are by request only; please contact the Camp Reed Office to initiate the refund process.
- Will campers have to test before arriving at Camp?
- Per Washington State Camping guidelines, participants and staff who are not fully vaccinated are required to provide proof of a negative viral test taken no more than 1–3 days before arriving at Camp. Following pre-camp COVID-19 testing, camper or staff will quarantine prior to their arrival to Camp Reed to limit any possible post-testing exposure to COVID-19. Per Washington State guidelines, anyone unable to meet vaccination or testing conditions is not allowed to participate in any Camp Reed programming.
- We will send out multiple testing options and testing sites to receive a negative test. We are currently working with SRHD to accommodate all families best.
- Will COVID-19 testing be available at Camp?
- We are currently exploring all testing options for testing. Please check back soon for updates.
- What will group sizes be, and how will Camp implement social tracing?
- We will track all group and unit locations. Group size shall not exceed groups larger than 16.
- What will happen if a camper/staff presents flu-like symptoms?
- If a camper or staff member has a temperature of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit and/or symptoms such as persistent cough, difficulty breathing, chills, diarrhea, or vomiting, they will be sent home immediately with the recommendation to contact their primary care physician/medical provider.
- If camper develops COVID-19 symptoms while at Camp Reed:
- Parents/guardians will be contacted for prompt pick up
- The camper will be immediately isolated from other campers and as many staff as possible
- The camper will wait with the following designated staff member(s): Camp Director and one other staff member such as Program Coordinator, H&W Assistant, Camp Health Care Provider, or other Lucky Admin staff
- If a staff member develops COVID-19 symptoms during the camp session, they will be asked to leave Camp immediately. If the ill staff member needs to be picked up or otherwise cannot leave the facility immediately, they will remain masked when in the presence of others and remain in isolation in one of the staff isolation cabins. Staff member will coordinate with Camp Director regarding return to Camp, as appropriate, following current guidelines from the YMCA of the Inland Northwest.
- How will staff/campers be screened to make sure that they are symptom-free?
- Symptom screenings will be done daily for all camp participants, including campers and staff. Counseling staff will conduct daily screenings using Camp’s symptom tracker form for all members of their cabin group, self-screening included. All staff members without a cabin group assignment will participate in daily screening with the H&W assistant. All symptom screenings to be completed by morning Chapel and Crittertalk. H&W Assistant will notify Infirmary staff for any campers or staff requiring follow-up from symptom screening.
- What can I do as a parent to prepare my child for Camp this summer?
- There are multiple things, first practice good hygiene techniques: washing hands thoroughly and frequently, practice good mask-wearing and maintenance, talk to them about how Camp will be different, so they are mentally and emotionally prepared, let them know they will have a good time and keep the spirit.
- How will meals work?
- At this time, meals will be eaten in shifts, distanced from other groups. We will have a staff served buffet style, with sneeze guards and other PPE in place.
- Will campfire, skits, and singing be allowed?
- Of course! It wouldn’t be Camp with our campfire, skits, and singing.
- Does the summer 2021 plan rely on Pend Oreille County advancing to a specific phase?
- Yes, our plan will rely on the phasing and standards set by local and state officials.
- Will Camp have horses this summer?
- Yes, horses will be available for trail ride only weeks 4 & 5.
Camp Check-In & Check-Out Times
To limit the number of people who come into the main Camp and reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission, we will be introducing staggered arrival and departure times, along with drive-through check-in and check-out processes for summer 2021. These procedures will model something similar to what is being done at local schools for check-in.
Families will be asked to arrive at Camp within a specific time window based on age. Camp Reed Staff will direct cars to drive partially into Camp for primary screening, med check-in, and camper sign in by parent/guardian. We will not be allowing parents/guardians into Camp this year; campers will get out of the car once all criteria are met, and screening has been conducted. Click here for an instructional video which demonstrates the check-in/check-out process and shows families what to expect upon their arrival at Camp Reed. To accompany the check-in/check-out video, please click here for written instructions.
Before you arrive at Camp, it will be essential to have your camper’s forms and all information ready to go prior to the start of camp (pre-camp paperwork and requirements can be found on parent’s corner). Please arrive on time. Do not arrive before your check-in time. If you arrive before your scheduled check-in time, you will be asked to wait until your check-in time.
Sunday Check-In Times:

- If you arrive with multiple Traditional Camper ages & no CIT, all campers should arrive at the youngest aged camper’s Check-in time.
What if I am going to be late for Check-in?
- We understand it may be challenging to arrive at your scheduled time, and we have created a late check-in time. If you are going to be late, please contact the Lucky # at (509) 276-5262. Late check-in will be 6:15 PM on Sundays. If your family cannot make the 6:15 PM late check-in, we will work with you and schedule a Monday morning check-in.
Check-Out will follow a very similar process as check-in. We will not be holding parent’s program at the end of each camp session during summer 2021. We are exploring a virtual parent’s program option to be shared after each week of Camp is over. The check-out process will be included in our instructional video.

JC Check-In & Check-Out
|Sunday: JC Assignments & Check-In in the A&C: Sunday, 2pm||Pick Up: Friday, 6pm|
Check in allows you to meet camp staff, register ALL medications with the camp nurse and provide any additional information (in writing) that you would like us to know. Check in may take awhile. Please do not arrive early as you will be asked to wait until your scheduled check-in time.
*If your child will not be attending or checking in late, please call the onsite office at 509 276 5262 a few days ahead to let us know. Late Check-In will be at 6:15pm on Sunday’s.
*If your child will have an early pick up or if someone other than a legal guardian will be picking up, please let Directors know at check in so that he can coordinate with your child’s counselor. If there are changes during the week, call the onsite office. Early check-out will be at 12:30pm on Friday’s.

Is YMCA Camp Reed Accredited?
Yes, Camp Reed is ACA accredited. ACA Accreditation means that Camp Reed undergoes a thorough (up to 300 standards) review of its operation — from staff qualifications and training to emergency management. American Camp Association collaborates with experts from the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Red Cross, and other youth-serving agencies to assure that current practices reflect the most up-to-date, research-based standards in camp operation. Camp Reed and ACA form a partnership that promotes growth and fun in an environment committed to safety.
ACA helps Camp Reed provide:
- Healthy, developmentally appropriate activities and learning experiences
- Discovery through experiential education
- Caring, competent role models
- Service to the community and the environment
- Opportunities for leadership and personal growth
Can I get a tour?
Camp Reed will offer an Open House – Date TBA. Take advantage of this opportunity to familiarize your camper with Camp Reed. We encourage new campers and their parents/guardians to visit camp prior to the beginning of the summer season. The tour will begin at 1pm and will last for about 45 minutes. This is the ideal introduction for your camper to visit camp, see the sights, ask questions and meet some of the summer staff. No RSVP required.
Is financial assistance available?
Yes! Thanks in part to the generous donors who put Philanthropy into Action, we are able to offer financial assistance for camperships. YMCA Camp Reed is committed to ensuring every child has the ability to spend a fun-filled week at camp exploring, learning, laughing, playing and much, much more.
To begin, please complete the Childcare & Programs Financial Assistance Application.
Note: The Programs & Childcare Financial Assistance expires annually and must be resubmitted each year. Financial Assistance is valid through April 30 of each year.
Qualifying applicants may receive a discount on camp programs. Financial assistance must be approved prior to registering for camp. Email or drop off the form at any of our branches, or the YMCA corporate office 1126 N Monroe. You may also fax it to 509 343 4096.
See more information on Financial Assistance under Programs, Dates & Rates.
Please Note: Camp Reed financial assistance applies for the summer child/children attends camp.
What are some of the activities at camp?
Camp Activities: A camper’s time at camp is divided between unit time, cabin activities, and free-choice time and all-camp events. Each day we have flagpole gatherings, chapel, waterfront activities, cabin clean up, work areas and siesta after lunch. Day and night hikes are extremely popular.
Activity Level of Camp: Camp Reed is a very active camp: LOTS of walking, hiking, swimming and activity. For some campers this is an adjustment to their town activity level. If your camper’s activity level is more sedentary, it is a good idea to take lots of walks, hikes, etc. in order to get in shape for camp. Sending good shoes to camp is essential. If you are in need of assistance for clothing or shoes for camp, call the camp office for a confidential consultation.
Swim Test: Camp Reed is located on the incredibly beautiful Fan Lake. On Monday all campers, by cabin, will take a swim test in our docks to determine ability: beginner, intermediate and advanced. If a camper chooses not to take the swim test they can still enjoy swimming and water activities while wearing a life jacket. Campers may re-test. All boating activities require life jackets.
Free-Choice Activities: Free-choice activities include arts & crafts, archery, climbing, sports, waterfront and wilderness activities. We also offer plenty of new and unique activities each day such as turtle hunts, random parades, stream hikes, boat races and a “Shark Swim” across the lake. This is a great time for campers to be with friends in different cabins.
Units: After Sunday check in, counselors will help campers to pick their top 3 unit choices. Units meet three times during the week for about 2 hours per session, and each camper will be assigned to ONE unit for the week, with older campers receiving first choice. Most unit activities are also available during free-choice time.
|Mountain Biking||Adventure||Drama||Challenge (Ropes Course)|
|Sports||Arts & Crafts||Wilderness||Horse Unit (add’l fee)|
Overnight: Once a week, weather permitting, each cabin joins with another for a sleep-out. This often includes a long hike (1 – 7 miles) and a night out under the stars. Younger cabins stay close to camp, while older campers explore further away from camp. Backpacks or bags to carry sleeping bags and water bottles are helpful.
Nighttimes: We have three campfires with songs and crazy staff skits with a special “sticks” campfire on the last evening. One night is reserved for a carnival and a camp dance. These events conclude around 9:30pm, and lights are out between 10:30pm and 11:30pm. Wake up bell is at 8:30am.
What are the horse program options?
Trail Ride: After your child is registered for traditional camp at Camp Reed, you may register them to participate in a trail ride. Trail ride registration is separate from traditional camp registration with an additional fee of $40, and this option is only offered for campers ages 10-14. Trail rides last approximately one hour and consist of a ride out on camp property.
Horse Unit: The horse unit covers three, two-hour introductory level classes which include trail rides. This will be your child’s unit choice while at camp. Registration for Horse Unit is separate from traditional camp registration with an additional fee. Ages 11-14 only. Horse unit will NOT be available for Summer 2021.
You may find the links to Trail Ride & Horse Unit registrations in the Traditional Camp section under Programs, Dates & Rates.
How can I prepare my child for camp?
Make sure your camper knows they are responsible for good self-care:
- Brushing teeth, washing, changing clothes & daily hygiene.
- Bug spray & sunscreen are camper’s responsibility; practice applying at home.
Pack with your camper so they know what they brought and where it is:
- Clothes don’t stay clean for long at camp. Realize that at Camp Reed part of the fun is not worrying about how you look. Rolling on the ground for fun is not uncommon!
Talk with them about making good choices:
- There are lots of options at camp. Talk about how to make good decisions.
- Encourage your camper to ask for help (JC, counselor or directors) if they have a problem.
- We can’t help them out if we don’t know about the concern.
What training does Camp Reed Staff receive around Child Abuse Prevention (CAP)?
- All staff are background checked upon hiring. Staff with consistent employment have background checks rerun every two years or if there has been a 60 day or more absence.
- Camp Reed gives required CAP training upon hiring for all staff within the first two weeks of hiring.
- All full-time staff participate in renewed CAP training yearly.
- CAP training is also reviewed and discussed during training week before the start of Camp.
- All YMCA staff are trained not to be, nor allowed to be alone with Campers. We practice a trio group system where all campers/staff must be in groups of 3 to avoid one-on-one situations.
- Throughout the week, roamers are tasked to roam throughout Camp, checking for campers who are in need of activity or escort campers to needed areas or activities.
- Frequent check-ins are in place to keep count of all campers.
- Pre-Summer CAP policies are viewed before the start of each summer.
- Camp Reed is ACA accredited, which examines all policies, activities, aspects of Camp, including camper safety and camper-to-staff interactions.
- The YMCA, participates in reoccurring CAP assessments to examine & assess our CAP policies & procures.
What if my child has a severe allergy or special need?
Camp Reed does not assume any liability for adverse reactions to foods, or items a camper may encounter during their stay at Camp Reed. If your child has a food allergy, please contact camp the week prior to your child’s visit to discuss the allergy with the camp nurse so we can better prepare to meet your child’s needs. Some food allergies are exceptionally difficult to accommodate at camp, although camp staff will do their best. In rare situations, you may be asked to send your camper with their own allergen-free foods.
Food Allergies: Each day of camp, our staff prepares over 1000 meals. Through information parents provide, we attempt to identify and reduce the use of ingredients that may cause allergic reactions for those with food allergies. However, there is always a risk of contamination. Despite care on our part, there is the possibility that manufacturers of the commercial foods we use could change the formulation at any time, without notice. Families of campers concerned with food allergies need to be aware of this risk.
Camp Reed does not assume any liability for adverse reactions to foods, or items a camper may encounter during their stay at Camp Reed. If your child has a food allergy, please contact the camp the week prior to your child’s visit to discuss the allergy with the camp nurse so we can better prepare to meet your child’s needs. There are circumstances that will make it very difficult for your child’s needs to be accommodated – one possible option is to send your camper with special food that will be made available to your child at mealtime.
What if my child has a buddy?
Campers are sorted first by gender, then age/grade, then by cabin buddy requests. Each camper may designate ONE “buddy” at the time of registration (both must choose each other as their ONE choice). If ALL these conditions are met, we do our best to honor buddy requests.
If at check in you find that your child is not in the cabin with their designated buddy, please let the directors know. If it is possible, we try to work things out. We are not able to accommodate chains or large group requests. Groups and cabin buddies can interfere with opportunities to make new friends, which is part of our mission at camp. If your child is not placed with all of their friends, they will have plenty of opportunities to spend time with their friends during unit, free time or all camp activities. Some families (and campers) come WITHOUT a buddy for the sole purpose of meeting new friends. Sometimes we get requests for campers NOT to be with other campers. Although you may want your child to get away from the group they regularly spend time with, campers will be placed in a cabin with other campers their same age/grade. This may include some of their classmates, depending on the number of campers we have registered in their age/grade that week. Every week we have varying numbers of each grade, so this is NOT something we can predict or control.
What if I want to send a care package? Care Packages No Longer Accepted
In the past, YMCA Camp Reed has allowed care packages to be left at Sunday drop off or mailed to camp. After much discussion and contemplation, we will no longer accept care packages at drop off and any mailed packages will be returned at pick up. Letters to campers will still be happily accepted.
Care packages are a source of joy when a camper receives one, and a source of great disappointment when they do not. A sense of competition often develops over who receives the biggest and best package. At YMCA Camp Reed, we strongly advocate an environment of equality and inclusion with every camper on equal footing and have found that care packages disrupt the delicate equilibrium at camp.
Despite a clearly communicated nut-free camp policy, care packages also frequently contain nut products or items that are at risk for cross-contamination. The ongoing risk to our vulnerable campers is a constant concern, and our staff spends a significant amount of time screening care package contents for allergen-containing items.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation!
How much money should I leave for the store? *NEW POLICY INFORMATION*
The camp store is open 4 times during the week for campers to purchase healthy snacks, sport drinks, pop, candy and ice cream with a daily limit, all priced $1 to $2. During free times the store is open to purchase authentic and awesome Camp Reed t-shirts, sweatshirts, white t-shirts for tie-dye, leather and craft materials, water bottles, sunglasses, stuffed animals and other signature items priced $5 to $15. We recommend a store deposit of $25 – $75 for traditional campers or $15 – $30 for mini campers, depending on your child’s choice of purchases.
New Store Policy: Starting Summer 2021, we will no longer be accepting Camp Reed Store Payments – or – additions at camp during check-in on Sundays. We will be accepting store payments until noon the Friday prior to your camper’s arrival. You will be able to add store money on Monday, after your camper is checked-in Sunday, by calling the downtown office. For further questions about this policy, please contact the Camp Reed Office.
PLEASE NOTE: The store is open on Saturdays after Parents Program to spend any funds left on account. We DO NOT accept credit cards or sell candy, pop or ice cream on Saturdays. Unless a written request is received, money not spent by camper is automatically donated to the Camper Program/Equipment Fund.
What if my child gets homesick?
Some children experience homesickness, whether it is their first or fiftieth time away from home. To better prepare your child, have them spend a couple of nights away from home before they come to camp. Most of the time campers are so busy that they do not have time to think about missing home. However, some children may experience symptoms of homesickness including: feeling sad at bed-time, feelings of loneliness and a lack of interest in activities.
How parents/guardians can help:
- Don’t project your apprehensions/concerns onto your child – keep it light.
- Help your child focus on how much fun they will have at camp.
- Let your child know that he/she will be busy and happy and that you are looking forward to sharing both of your experiences at the end of camp.
- Don’t offer to pick up your child if they are homesick – this often becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy and hampers their experience.
- At drop off tell them you believe they are ready and that you will see them at pickup!
- Attend the New Camper Orientation Open House. The good news is that it is a wonderful developmental step for your child to attend camp and almost all homesick children will overcome it and be just fine. In the unfortunate event that a camper shows severe anxiety, rest assured that we will place a phone call to ask you how you would like us to proceed.
Can I see my camper at camp?
Visits to camp during the week are not permitted during the summer season. Experience has shown us that parent visits tend to be disruptive to the camper as well as the staff who have to take time away from their program duties. If an emergency arises, a visit must be arranged and approved in advance through camp directors. Please rest assured that if a situation comes to our attention during the week that requires your input, we will contact you and keep you updated.
What if my camper lost his or her item(s) at camp?
It is very important that you label all items with your child’s name and that your child is aware that they are responsible for everything they bring to camp. On Saturday morning all lost items from that week are placed on tarps at the soccer field for viewing and reclaiming. After that the items are held at Camp Reed for two weeks. If you believe your camper is missing an item or clothing, please call the on-site office at 509 276 5262 and we will look through the lost and found from that week. If we find your item we will make arrangements to have it transported to the Camp Reed corporate office where you may pick it up. After two weeks, all salvageable items are donated to local charity.
How will I be informed if there is an emergency?
In the event of an emergency, or power outage, we will keep families updated utilizing our Camp Reed Facebook Page
What to pack and other things to know
LABEL EVERYTHING! Traditional campers spend six nights at camp, one of them outdoors, weather permitting. Pack for a week of rain or a week of hot sun. Chances are we will have a little of both. We drip-dry our clothes when wet, and wash them only in emergencies. Modest dress is expected at Camp Reed.
DO NOT pack/wear: low hanging or sagging pants, “short” shorts, halter tops, low cut/ see through/strapless shirts. Underwear/bra straps may not show. Swimsuits should be modest and cover-ups should be worn to and from the waterfront. Clothing may not advocate immoral conduct, disrespect of others or depict weapons, tobacco, alcohol or drugs. Participants not meeting standards will be1) spoken to by cabin counselor 2) spoken to by directors. Directors have the final say with regard to the appropriateness of any clothing worn at camp.
