Kateri Chaperones

For Kateri camps, an adult chaperone is allowed, but not needed. (This changed from the original recommedation) 

We have been able to research and implement the best systems for providing a safe and fun experience. We have adjusted our guideline for the 5th/6th grade campers and now chaperones are allowed, but not needed. We have staff who are trained in keeping campers social distanced while providing a very fun, safe and spirit filled camp experience. We appreciate your trust and are looking forward to camp!

Here is information for the adult chaperones:

  • Please follow the Camp Tekakwitha COVID-19 guidelines, which can be found here. This includes remaining six feet apart from other campers and staff members.
  • The adult chaperones will be in proximity of their camper. 
  • There will be an opportunity for two adult Bible studies while in proximity of their camper.

PACKING RESTRICTIONS/DRESS CODE

Our camps require an abundance of physical activity.  We want to focus on deepening our faith and enjoying our outdoor adventure, and not on one another’s clothes or lost possessions.  It is important to wear clothes that will be comfortable, safe, and modest (no tank tops or bare midriffs) and appropriate for athletic activities.  Manufactured sleeveless shirts are allowed.  We require a minimum of a 2” inseam on all shorts.  It is more comfortable and modest to have longer shorts for ropes activities. Clothing that promotes non-Christian values will not be permitted.

 

Cologne, make up, and jewelry need to be kept to a minimum.

 

All baggage is thoroughly checked upon arrival to ensure a fun, spirit-filled, and safe camping experience for all.

 

Good hygiene is also important; deodorant use and showering are strongly encouraged.

 

Personal Sports Equipment, which includes items such as archery equipment, climbing gear, and other equipment, should not be included in packing as all the equipment needed during Camp will be provided by Camp.  

Domesticated animals should not be brought to Camp. If you have questions about a Service Animal, as defined under title II and III of ADA, please contact us.
