COVID-19 Response as of 3/13/20

Sacramento knows that as responsible group leaders, guests, and/or parents or guardians of potential campers, many of you are worried about COVID-19 and the repercussions that the virus is causing nationwide.  Undoubtedly, you have many questions; should you attend your churches retreat, should you send your child to camp, should you still attend your scheduled family reunion? What is Sacramento Camp and Conference Center doing to keep my child safe?


First, I would like you to know that Sacramento is closely monitoring this situation and working with New Mexico Health officials and other agencies as the situation with COVID-19 evolves. We are committed to doing everything we can to keep our guests safe while visiting Sacramento. 


Sacramento staff will continue to run this camp and conference center with the utmost attention paid to hygiene and guest safety. We have initiated our infectious pathogens response and prevention policies, which outline our increased cleaning procedures, along with many other suggested methods of slowing the transmission of COVID-19 while in a group setting. These changes include everything from education about self-care health screenings/evaluations during the conference camp registration process to increasing the regularity of replacement and type of air filters used in our heating and air-conditioning systems. There is no aspect of camp that has not been scrutinized to assure the safest environment for our guest and staff.  If the need arises, we have quarantine facilities ready for immediate use and will take action to prevent the exposure of other guests.


Currently, we are asking that all our potential guests adhere to the recommendations put forth by the CDC, and New Mexico Department of Health. We ask that any guests who show symptoms consistent with an infectious illness to stay home.  Please call our office for specific information pertaining to your group or further information on the steps we are taking to protect you.


In addition to the above items we are also following good stewardship practices and are analyzing our budget to trim any non-essential expenses to offset the potential loss of income due to this virus.  Be in prayer for all those in need!  God is Good!   

In His Service,

Bill McCuaig

Executive Director
