Covid-19 Precautions & Protocols
We do not require proof of testing prior to arrival to CELP. We highly recommend using an at-home rapid antigen test the day before or day of camp attendance. Guests will be tested for COVID-19 if they have signs or symptoms of illness. Any guest testing positive for COVID-19 will need to return home. Current guidance from the LA County Department of Public Health requires a five-day isolation period, which we are not able to support at camp.
