The February 1st deadline for signing up for 6th Grade Camp has now passed and registration is now closed. Staff and logistics are now being worked out based on the number of participants who have signed up and we will keep families updated though these weekly updates and direct emails. If you have additional questions or concerns, please contact Lynda Carter at lycarter@powayusd.com.

COVID-19 TESTING UPDATE: all students attending camp, regardless of vaccination status, will have to test prior to going to camp and once while at camp. Students who test positive will unfortunately not be able to participate in 6th grade camp.

Testing before camp can happen two different ways:

  1. PCR test: test results must be within 72 hours of 9am on 3/7. Medical insurance covers the cost for most plans; you can schedule a test through Phamatech by CLICKING HERE. A print out of the negative test will need to be brought with the student on Monday, 3/7. No digital or emailed copies will be accepted.  Families will also be able to swing by TPMS on Sunday, 3/6 between 11am and 1pm to turn-in their negative covid tests in order to receive a wristband to board the bus on Monday morning.
  2. In-Person take-home test: on Sunday, 3/6 we will have staff on campus from 11am-1pm for families to come to TPMS and administer a take-home test for their student that can be verified by school staff. This will also be an opportunity for families who took the PCR test to stop by and turn in their negative tests in order to receive a wristband to board the bus on Monday morning.
Testing while at camp:  Camp Cuyamaca will be administering rapid antigen tests mid-week to all students, including those who are fully vaccinated. Students who have had COVID-19 recently will be exempt from routine testing. Any student who exhibits COVID-related symptoms will be tested.
