We are excited and committed to a safe and fun summer at Frontier Ranch.
Our ability to operate successfully this summer rests on the cooperation of every member of our camp family, abiding by our health protocols. Please work with us to keep all campers safe and healthy.
In response to COVID-19, Mission Springs maintains a high level of awareness and protection for all guests coming on-site.
Covid-19 and Communicable Disease Guidelines 2023
- Frontier Ranch strongly recommends that campers be fully vaccinated before arrival, arrive at camp without symptoms, and receive a negative test result for COVID-19 infection within 72 hours of the camper start date.
- We will require camper health screening and temperature checks at camper drop-off.
- For everyone’s safety: If your camper feels sick, has any flu-like illness, or is testing positive covid-19, please keep them home.
If the California Department of Public Health amends covid-19 guidance for overnight youth and family camps, we will follow suit and communicate to all Frontier Ranch families.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What if my camper test positive for COVID-19 before camp?
A: If your camper tests positive for COVID-19 within five days of their camp start date, please do not send them until they are testing negative and do not have a fever. Please refer to the COVID-19 isolation guidelines for further info.
Q: What if my camper comes down with symptoms of COVID-19 or another communicable disease at camp?
A: Campers with symptoms of infectious illness, such as influenza (flu) or COVID-19 will be quarantined at camp until arrangements can be made to go home. Campers will be referred to their healthcare provider for testing and care, regardless of vaccination status.
Q: Will I be notified if my camper is exposed to COVID-19 while at camp?
A: If your child were in close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19 while at camp, we would notify you via phone or email. As defined by the CDC, close contact is as follows: Someone less than 6 feet away from an infected person for 15 minutes or more over 24 hours.
Q: What if there is a positive COVID-19 case in my camper’s cabin?

If symptoms arise, they will need to go home. We will not move exposed campers into unexposed cabins at the risk of creating new exposures.
