Yellowstone Alliance Adventures Response to Covid 19 (Corona Virus) Pandemic

Based on Montana’s current state with COVID-19 and entering Phase 1 of reopening, we have decided to move forward with our regularly scheduled programs for the summer. Please check back as we continue to monitor the situation and changes can be made at any time. We look forward to seeing you soon! 

Updated: August 13, 2020

We are excited to share that we WILL hosting our Labor Day Family Camp. Please see the attached document for YAA Family Camp changes due to COVID-19. We hope you will consider joining us. Please register here!

We recognize and understand Governor Bullock’s latest order issued Wednesday, July 15th of mandatory mask coverings in public spaces and outdoors where safe distance can not be accomplished with groups of 50 or more. Based on this information, we are proceeding with our regularly scheduled camps and at this point WILL NOT require our campers or staff to wear masks while they are here at camp because we are keeping their cabin size groups of 10 or less and they will have safe outdoor distance from other cabin groups.

We are thankful to be able to report that YAA has already run 7 weeks of safe, COVID-19 FREE camp this summer and believe this is in part due to the proactive measures and important safety protocols we preemptively put in place.

Thank you for your continued support. We pray health and safety over us all!

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Should I still register my child for summer camp amidst this crisis?
A: Yes! Please continue registering your camper for camp this summer. At this point, our summer program schedule has NOT been impacted by COVID 19. In the event that we need to cancel summer programs, we will issue refunds in accordance with our refund policy.

In every situation we have always taken the welfare and safety of every guest and camper seriously.  It is no different during this nationwide outbreak of the Corona Virus. During this novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, we are taking additional steps. Andrea Hawthorne, our Assistant to the Director/Food Service and Housekeeping Manager, is heading up our response to this health situation. The following actions are being taken as part of our proactive approach.

  1. We are following the protocol laid out for public schools by the CDC and have subscribed to daily updates from the CDC to stay abreast of developments.
  2. We are following the advice for cleaning and disinfecting the camp buildings and kitchen created by the Washington State Department as we run housekeeping and food service.
  3. We are closely following the Montana DPHHS (Department of Health and Human Services) published findings on their web site.

The following protocol is required for all guests PRIOR to arriving at camp.

  1. In accordance with the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Montana Department of Public Health, any employee, student, or other community member who has traveled to a Level 3 area where there is large–scale, ongoing community transmission of COVID–19 should self–isolate and not come to YAA property for 14 days upon return to Montana and remained self-quarantined.
  2. If you for any reason, believe you have crossed paths with an infected person or may be contagious yourself, you must self-quarantine and avoid contact with others. Do not visit the camp facility of Yellowstone Alliance Adventures if you have any of the known symptoms of Covid 19.
  3. If you do visit YAA facilities, we expect you to follow all of the CDC publish guidelines for hygiene and public separation.
  4. If after visiting YAA camp facilities, you begin manifesting symptoms of COVID 19 you must report your status to the YAA staff immediately. Your movements can be shared with others.
  5. If YAA discovers that a guest or camper is a risk or has been diagnosed with COVID 19 we will report this to the group leader and ask that the group leave camp. If a camper attending a YAA hosted event is tested positive for COVID 19, we will ask this camper to leave and alert all parents of campers currently on property to allow families to make the best decision under their discretion.

Thank you for continuing to trust YAA to serve you safely and thank you for doing your part to prevent the spread of this disease.

Sincerely,

Jim Hawthorne
Executive Director
