Coronavirus Action Plan

Because Young Life is committed to the health and well-being of all participants in our programs, we are closely monitoring and responding to the global COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak. We are committed to understanding and complying with all guidance and regulations provided and established by the CDC, WHO and local health agencies.

Young Life Camping ​

Any plans and usage of our properties will be in accordance with bans on large group gatherings, travel restrictions and our confidence that we can continue to meet our high standards for health and safety at camp. 

In light of the coronavirus outbreak, we will add to our already rigorous health and safety protocols at each of our camps as we make decisions about the summer season. We continue to monitor the coronavirus outbreak and adjust camping offerings and trips as needed to ensure the safety of all Young Life staff, volunteers and guests.  

Person-to-person ministry
As areas begin reopening, Young Life is engaging in limited person-to-person ministry in states and counties that are allowing gatherings. In places with stay-at-home orders in place, we continue to connect with kids online and through social media.​

Safety Protocols

We are taking a number of protocols as we engage in person-to-person ministry, where it’s allowed:
  • We communicate to kids and parents that anyone not feeling well or at higher risk continue to stay at home.
  • We encourage participants to stop the spread of germs, including making hand sanitizer/hand washing available at every activity.
  • We plan activities that follow local guidelines – including social distancing or wearing face masks. In addition, where these guidelines aren’t in place we minimize any contact between participants.
  • We identify spaces to meet that allow for social distancing and for someone to separate themselves if they feel ill.
  • We thoroughly clean meeting spaces, with special attention to high-contact surfaces.
  • Any food served is either prepackaged or purchased from food distributors or restaurants.

As you have questions, please reach out to your local Young Life staff to understand current guidelines in your area.
