Overnight and day camps are allowed to open in New Jersey this summer, while following required safety guidelines, including:

  • Indoors, unvaccinated staff must wear face masks at all times except when not practicable, such as when eating or drinking, or sleeping.
  • For overnight camps, all unvaccinated/partially vaccinated staff/campers will be required to have a documented negative test within 72 hours of arriving on-site.
  • Camps must ensure, to the maximum extent possible, that groups include the same children and staff each day. Camp operators should minimize unvaccinated staff/camper movement between groups.
