We continue to work closely with healthcare professionals, industry leaders, program partners, staff and others to develop the protocols and policies needed to offer our constituents access to fulfilling adaptive programming.
With the 2020-2021 winter season now successfully behind us, we have turned our attention to summer program planning with the goal of offering day programs for local youth and teens and then overnight and remote programs for those we didn’t get to see last summer. The development of safety protocols and procedures will be our guide for a great summer of outdoor activities.
Some things you can expect to see this summer include:
- Daily Health Screenings.
- Face Coverings required in certain settings and for those who are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
- An evolving policy that follows local and state health guidelines.

BOEC is committed to operating all facilities and programs in a manner that provides a safe place for BOEC participants, staff and volunteers. The BOEC Summer Operations Manual provides revised policies and procedures intended to mitigate risk and reduce potential exposures to and spread of COVID-19 during BOEC programming. The information presented is consistent with the health and safety recommendations by the CDC as well as the State of Colorado and Summit County Public Health Departments. BOEC’s policies and procedures meet or exceed guidelines set forth by these three agencies and will be reviewed and updated as needed. Staff and volunteers will be trained on all new policies as they evolve.
We hope that you will review the BOEC Summer Operations Manuals linked below and reach out to us with any questions you may have. We look forward to welcoming you and your loved ones back to BOEC this year.
