The CCC's Covid Guidelines for the 2022 Summer Season

The Christian Conference Center has worked hard to plan for the safety of campers, volunteers and staff since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic.  We have relied on guidance from the Center for Disease Control and the American Camping Association along the way.  We have made the following determinations about Covid-19 protocols for the 2022 camping season.  (We reserve the right to amend these protocols if transmission increases drastically in the state of Iowa.)

  • Current CDC and American Camping Association guidance states that camps should follow K-12 education guidelines, which currently recommend masks in areas of high transmission only.

  • Masks will not be required unless transmission rates in the state of Iowa increase dramatically.  Campers would be notified in writing before their session if masks become required.  

  • Regardless of whether or not campers choose to wear a mask, they will be welcomed and loved unconditionally by volunteers and staff.

  • Outdoor spaces will be used as much as possible for small group Bible studies, games, and large group gatherings.  

  • We recommend that all volunteers and campers are vaccinated before camp.  (The CCC staff members have all received their vaccinations and are ready to serve you.)

  • We recommend that campers and volunteers get tested for Covid-19 before their camp session.

  • Campers, staff and volunteers will be encouraged to practice good hygiene and self-monitor for symptoms of illness, both at camp and after they return home.

  • Campers and volunteers who are immunocompromised, or live with someone who is, may request to be placed in a group with other campers and volunteers who are fully vaccinated.

  • Rapid tests will be on site in case of illness.
