We’re getting ready for a great camp experience.

We are excited to welcome our middle schoolers and high schoolers back to camp this year.

We plan to be able to accommodate all our campers. We are still deciding on how to break up the camps within the week. The high schoolers will be divided into two camps like last year. The schedule is below!

We’ll be updating this page regularly with more information for parents, including registration, packing lists, and any other camp updates you might need.

If you have questions that are not addressed in our FAQs, please reach out to your local ministry staff.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Covid-19 Related

How are you prioritizing the safety of the camp this year?

We will meet or exceed the current safety suggestions of the CDC and local public health departments.

What is the health protocol for campers who spend the night?

For all campers (vaccinated or unvaccinated) staying overnight, the current health protocol will be the following: 1. Self-quarantine for 5 days before camp, and 2. Present a negative COVID test result (at-home/antigen) within 24 hrs of camp. (We will send emails with any updates if this protocol changes between now and camp.)

Do you have Covid-19 policies in place to ensure safety for camp?

Yes. We have developed safety practices to meet or exceed the guidelines provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Santa Cruz County health specialists.

Will camp counselors and staff be vaccinated?

All BACC overnight counselors will be fully vaccinated.

Koinonia requests that their staff members who live on-site be vaccinated but do not require it. All staff who stay on-site have daily health screenings.

Does my camper need to test for Covid-19 before coming to camp?

We are asking all campers to do an at-home antigen test for Covid-19 within 24 hours of their arrival at camp and to present a negative test result. More details and/or updates will be emailed to registrants between now and camp.

Will you provide a list of nearby accommodations for campers and families who cannot stay overnight at camp?

Yes. Travel sites like Expedia and Travelocity have a great range of affordable hotel rooms if you book early.

AirBnB and VRBO both provide an excellent list of different types of accommodations near Koinonia Conference Grounds. Search for rentals near Watsonville, Corralitos, Aptos, or Santa Cruz.

Can I pick up my daycamper before the 9 pm end time each day?

Yes. We have two pick-up times for day campers:

  • Early pickup – 6 pm (after dinner)
  • Late pickup – 9 pm (after bonfire and evening activities)

**A different pick-up time can be arranged for your camper as needed.

What happens if someone presents symptoms of Covid-19 at camp?

Any camper or staff who presents COVID-19 symptoms will quarantine in our designated isolation areas. We will follow all public health requirements.

We will conduct a rapid COVID-19 test, and the family of the camper will immediately be contacted by the camp nurse.

If a camper tests positive for COVID-19, parents/guardians should plan to arrive at camp to pick them up within three hours.

Will I receive a refund if my camper is sent home due to Covid-19 or being exposed to Covid-19?

If your camper attends less than 50% of the camp, you will only be charged 50% of the camp fees. Generally, refunds are not issued if your camper attends more than 50% of the camp.

If your camper tests positive for Covid-19 upon arrival at camp and is sent home, you will be refunded in full.
