Camp and Recreation Programs – Communicable Disease Plan (CDP)

Purpose Statement

The Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation (AARBF) prides itself on providing a safe and healthy environment in which burn survivors, volunteers, and staff can come together to meet the mission and objectives of the organization. When communicable illness presents itself, it can negatively impact the mission and objectives in negative ways. This Communicable Disease Plan outlines the prevention, response, recovery, and mitigation policies along with procedures to lower the impact of a communicable disease on our programs. Some policies and procedures are subject to change depending on the rate of disease transmission, severity of symptoms, and availability of treatment for a disease.

For the purpose of this document, when describing Participants, Campers, Parents, and Staff, they will encompass the following:

  • Participant: All Participants/Campers and Counselors In Training (CITs) as identified in the Volunteer Manual
  • Parent: Any legal guardian of a Participant who is under the age of 18

(i.e. a staff member’s child shall meet the guidelines set forth for participants/campers).
