TVRC was part of a small percentage of summer camps in the US to operate successfully in 2020 without any Covid cases among the campers or staff.
This past year has challenged us to look at how we manage our program and how we can set campers and staff up for a successful and fun summer while still protecting their health.
As we continue to navigate the national and local responses to the Covid Pandemic we are dedicated to following the recommendations and requirements and providing a quality experience for our campers and staff next summer. When we wrote our original opperation plan under Covid in 2020 the Fremont County Health Officials stated it was the best response plan they had read from any organization opperating in the county. We have continued to do the work to ensure we’re ahead of the curve and responding in a responsible manner.
We are committed to holding both our traditional 30 day program in 2021 as well as our Outrider Program that we created for 2020 which is a shortened program focused on backcountry experiences.
We will be sharing updates as we confirm our approach for the 2021 season, but do know that we are 100% committed to operating. Below you will find the outline of our Covid-19 Opperating Framework for 2021.
If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to Cora Ligori, our Assistant Camp Director who is also continuing to manage our Covid responses.

TVRC is dedicated to following the best science and the leading professionals in the field; namely the Center for Disease Control, the American Camp Association, as well as our state and local health officials and our Medical Director.
TVRC remains always committed to clear communications with our families and staff. If you have questions at any time, we are readily available for a phone call, email or zoom meeting! Please just reach out!
TVRC has evaluated most aspects of our traditional program to fine-tune ways to operate our program with respect to the constraints presented by the Covid-19 pandemic. Some areas might look different, but we can assure you it’s still wholeheartedly TVRC!
TVRC created new positions in 2020 called “Sanitation Team” whose sole responsibility is to clean and disinfect high touch areas of camp. Dining hall, Vans, Bathrooms, Cabins; they are everywhere!
TVRC has always held a high regard to our medical staff, and this continues to be a main focus. We are committed to staffing our medical team with a minimum of two experienced nurses with frontline Covid 19 experience. Our Medical Director and Board Pediatrician are heavily involved in our plan and suggested guidance and protocols. We also maintain fantastic relationships with the Medical Clinic in Dubois, the hospitals in Jackson and Lander, and with emergency medical responders in our area.
As in 2020, and unless there are significant changes in the future, TVRC will remain a closed community in 2021; and will closely monitor who enters and remains in our facility. Staff will not have time off, away from the ranch, and our off campus trips will focus on areas that are remote and isolated, versus the more popular and crowded areas.
