Welcome to Camp Olympia’s Staff for 2021! You are about to embark on what we are sure will be one of the most O-Mazing experiences of your life. We have included everything we think you will need in order to help you prepare to have the best summer ever! This counselor “packet” lists all your paperwork that is required to have on file, packing list, as well as the counselor manual you need to read. So let’s get started…..
COUNSELOR TRAINING SCHOOL (CTS) ARRIVAL
Remember it’s not only mandatory, but it’s a BLAST!
Returning Counselor: Plan to arrive by 12:00pm Wednesday, May 19th.
New Counselor: Plan to arrive at Olympia between 1:00 – 2:00pm on Wednesday, May 19th. If you will be traveling a long distance and need to come in Tuesday the 18th that will be fine, but please make arrangements with Cody and/or Michelle ahead of time.
Check In Process:We ask for patience this year as things will be different and moving at a slower pace than normal due to COVID policies. Our goal is to create a clean “bubble” inside of camp. We will begin opening our gates by 12PM and ask that staff arrive in their allotted time, as we will stagger check-in times. We also ask that you stay in your car unless otherwise directed by a Camp Olympia staff member. Upon arrival, you will be directed through the Camp O gates and stopped for your health check and present your negative PCR test (administered within 72 hours of arrival) OR COVID vaccine that has been completed prior to 2 weeks before camp. As you wait, a staff member will explain the remaining drop-off process and provide directions to your particular cabin. Once you have been cleared, you will head through Camp’s gates, down the main road, and around the Cabin Loop. Once you get to your cabin, a staff member will meet you at your car and help unload your belongings. If you are being dropped off, we ask that your family NOT exit their vehicle. You will say your goodbyes in the car and then our staff will help you settle into the cabin. All belongings will be disinfected prior to being moved into the cabins. If you are driving yourself to camp, you will drive and park your car in the counselor parking lot once you have unloaded your belongings. From there, a staff member will pick you up and bring you down to the main part of camp to begin the FUN!
