The following is some important information to consider before attending a BOEC program:

Health Screening
Do not come to BOEC if you are sick. You must arrive with no symptoms and maintain no symptoms for the duration of your stay. We require a daily health screening while you are at BOEC.

We highly encourage vaccinations and boosters for all eligible participants. If you are not up to date with your COVID-19 vaccines, you may be required to wear a mask indoors. Some agencies may require vaccinations to participate in BOEC programs, so please remember to check in with your trip leader.

We will not be requiring any testing prior to attending BOEC programs, however, this may change based on the prevalence of COVID-19. Please consider self-test before arriving at BOEC to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

BOEC is following the guidelines on masking set forth by CDC, the State of Colorado, Summit County, and local mandates wherever we travel to. BOEC will uphold any agency’s guidelines so long as they are not less rigorous than BOEC’s or local mandates. Unvaccinated participants may be required to wear masks indoors or in vans where fresh air and social distancing are not possible. If participants have any symptoms such as a runny nose or sneezing, they may be required to wear a mask. Our requirements on masks may change based on the prevalence of COVID-19.

Social Distancing
Weather cooperating, we will be spending as much time as possible outdoors to allow for social distancing and fresh air. We may require masks if we are doing an activity in which there is a sustained amount of time in close contact with others depending on the prevalence of COVID at the time of programming.

Hygiene & Facility Cleaning
We will be ensuring good hand hygiene and overall cleanliness during the transition of activities, mealtimes, and sporadically throughout the day. There will also be frequent cleaning of facilities. Individually assigned materials, gear, sleeping accommodations, etc. will also be made available as much as possible.

The above guidelines were created based on the CDC recommendations for small and large gatherings (
