COVID-19 Stories: Twin Lake

COVID-19 Stories: Twin Lake

How has COVID-19 affected your business or organization? And what are you currently doing differently because of it?


Greetings.  We hope that each of you are healthy and trusting the Lord during this trying time for our country and world. We are seeking to trust the Lord in everything, knowing that His word is true and that He is working out everything according to His ultimate plan for our good and His glory. With school closures, social distancing, quarantines, etc in effect, no doubt, COVID-19 (Coronavirus) has had an impact on you and your family already. As we all navigate these uncharted waters, we felt that it is important to reach out to our “Twin Lakes family” in order to reassure you that the health and safety of our guests, campers, camper families, and staff is of the utmost importance to us. We understand that there may be questions/concerns regarding camp this summer and safety precautions for campers and families. The Leadership and staff of Twin Lakes staff have met within the past 48 hours and are committed to continuing to plan and prepare for Summer 2020. We are looking forward to providing an incredible camp experience for everyone involved! By sending this email, we do not mean to overwhelm you with even more information aimed at you, but simply to inform you of many of the normal health procedures we already have in place at camp.

For the health and safety of our staff and campers…

All parents:

• Are asked to complete a medical history form for each camper (within two months of their session)

• Are informed prior to camp sessions of our health-related procedures, including:
– campers must be fever and symptom-free for 24 hours to be permitted at camp
– campers running a fever or who have a contagious ailment must be picked up until fever or symptom-free for 24 hours.

All campers:
Receive beginning of the week health screens, including:

• brief questioning of potential recent health ailments in their household

• assessment of outward signs of illness
– eyes
– hair
– skin
– throat

• are encouraged to employ hand sanitizing
– upon entering the Dining Hall
– following bathroom breaks
– following the handling of animals

• are cared for by a healthcare team and medical doctor who oversee
– the administration of prescribed medicines
– any unforeseen healthcare needs
– communication back to parents/guardians as needed

We are prayerful that much of what we are experiencing right now will have died down by the end of May. However, between now and the time camp begins, Twin Lakes will continue to stay aware of all CDC and MSDH requirements and recommendations, as well as national laws and health requirements relevant to COVID-19 in order to plan and make decisions regarding the summer. We will also be in communication with our camp doctors, gaining their medical knowledge and experience with our camp program and needs in order to incorporate any additional healthcare practices that may need to be in place. We know that there is a lot to think about and deal with at the moment. We encourage you to reach out with any questions or concerns that you may have via email ( or by phone:  601-845-6858. Our office hours are Monday-Friday from 8:30 am-4:30 pm.

What would you like us to share with our audience about your organization?

SUMMER IS COMING! We are looking forward to a great season of camps! Many of you have already signed campers up for Summer 2020. But if you haven’t, registration is in FULL SWING! Make sure to sign your camper up for their favorite week before it’s full. SUMMER STAFF POSITIONS We are continuing to interview and hire male and female staff as summer counselors.
