The health and safety of our campers is our highest priority.  With the direction and guidance of medical and health officials, we have developed a COVID-19 health and safety plan that includes:

Primarily Outdoor Programming:  The majority of programming will occur outside to reduce the likelihood of spreading the COVID-19 virus. Fortunately, Camp Millican has always been an outdoor day camp with a variety of exploratory activities.  The day to day for campers should look very much like prior camp years! Any indoor programming will require staff and campers to wear masks.

Small Group Tribes: Each camper will be placed in a small group or “tribe” of 4-10 campers.  This tribe will be their social circle for the full week of camp.  Tribes will not co-mingle indoors and tribes will remain a minimum of 6 feet apart when the entire camp comes together for programming.

Health Requirements: All campers and staff must be healthy and not exhibiting any symptoms prior to arriving at camp.  A pre-screening questionnaire will be sent to each camper the week before their camp session. Staff may take campers’ temperature at the beginning of each day.

Social Distancing: All programming will require campers to maintain a general separation of approximately 6 feet or more whenever possible.  Indoor programming will occur in small groups only.

Masks and Hygiene: All campers and staff will wear a mask when indoors.  Staff will wear masks when activities require close proximity to campers. Hand/wash and sanitizing stations will be available and frequent hand cleaning will be observed.  Common use items will be sanitized after each user.

Counselor Requirements: Counselors will have temperature taken every day, will be required to report personal health concerns, and will be wearing masks when necessary. Counselors who report having been exposed to the COVID-19 virus will stay home.

Camp Millican is located Millican Reserve: 19851 FM 2154, College Station TX 77845 . Please plan to arrive 15 minutes before camp starts.

A drop-off area will be designated with a table and red umbrella on your left when you pull in.  Please park on the right side of the road and walk your child over to the check in table where a temperature check and sign-in will occur.

Camper are encouraged to bring:

  • Sunscreen
  • Labeled water bottle
  • Labeled lunch in lunch box (lunch boxes will be sanitized by camp staff and then placed in a cooler until lunch) – Acorn Campers may be picked up at noon if you would prefer your child to not eat lunch at camp.
  • Closed toed shoes
  • Nature appropriate clothing
