Riverview Camp Health and Safety Guidelines regarding 2023

Greetings from Lookout Mountain! We know you have been eagerly waiting for summer to get here! We are so excited to see you soon.  Just a reminder that if you have a friend that wants to join you at camp this summer, now is the time for them to complete an application!

We are so thankful that the Covid/virus decline is making it possible to open camp “normally”! However, if conditions change, we reserve the right to change protocols to what is necessary to insure health at camp. Whether your daughter is returning to camp or joining us for the first time, we want Riverview Camp to be her “home away from home”.

With this in mind, we are excited to welcome our campers and staff back to Riverview!


  1. Testing Before Camp:  Currently we are not requiring a negative test before arrival into camp. However, we will ask you to review the waiver below indicating covid free status.  You are not required to upload any of the covid requirements relating to testing. You may upload the vaccination or antibody/covid virus information (though not required) if you would like for us to have that in her medical records.
  2. Covid Vaccinations: A fully vaccinated camp (or antibodies) offers the best protection available for the camping community.  If you are still considering vaccination, please consult with your daughter’s physician who is her consistent medical professional.
  3. One of the keys to a successful summer without pre-testing will be bringing your girls in without recent exposure. In the week prior to summer camp please do everything you can to avoid exposure to Covid.

Please use caution prior to her session (who she is around, etc). If your daughter has a close-contact covid exposure prior to camp, please test her at home or morning of camp, and make appropriate session-change decision based on test results. If negative, discuss with the medical staff so they can be aware.

  1. Only a camper presenting covid-suspicious symptoms will be tested and in the event a campers should be positive for Covid 19 while at camp, she will be isolated briefly. We are not equipped for long-term isolation and therefore the camper should be picked up as soon as possible, within 12 hours of diagnosis in order to complete isolation according to current protocols.
  2. Campers are asked to check in on the opening days, not on the following day, etc. We are asking that our campers stay in camp until closing day of her sessions(s).

Additional Pre-Camp Information Details:

  1. Camp fees and spending money, originally due May 1st, must be paid in full at least 1 week before arrival at camp.
  2. Health History form must be completed online one week before arrival to camp. Camper’s medications must be entered online on the Medication Form before arriving to camp.   Campers may not keep any medication (Tylenol, etc.) in their cabins.
  3. Check-in times:

8:30 am to 10:30 AM CDT on two-week opening days

9:30-11:00 on B, D and F one-week opening days (2nd week of a session).

  1. Parent’s may accompany your camper to check in at the office, for her health screening in the gym, Chiki Boutiki and to her cabin. To help congestion in the cabin we are asking that only one adult at a time be with her in the cabin.
  2. Closing day procedure will be similar as opening day procedure.


  • Our mission is that every girl will feel God’s presence at Riverview and above all, that she feels safe here, as she participates in and enjoys camp life this summer.
  • Cabins will operate the same as they always have.  Cabins will be our campers’ primary family.  Campers will not be allowed to enter cabins that are not their own.
  • During mealtimes, cabin inspection, rest period, shower times and bedtime, campers and staff will interact with their cabin family. Your camper will need to bring a caddy or Zip-lock bag for shower time, with just her shower items.
  • Prior to meals, Riverview will continue our practice of placing hand sanitizer on the hand of every camper and staff entering the building. Meals will be eaten with cabin groups as usual and physically distant from other cabins.
  • Our activity programs will operate as usual with girls participating in the activities they select, and as usual, will remain in their “age or skill level groups”.
  • Caution this and every summer is an expectation not an option.

Thank you for trusting us with your daughter(s). We look forward to seeing you at Riverview!

With Thanks,

Dr. Larry and Susan Hooks
