COVID-19 Response & FAQs


An Update on the 2021 Summer Season:

We're excited to announce that our team is planning and preparing to have Dads Camp onsite at Camp Paradise this summer. Our team is working with local officials in Michigan, the Luce County health department, and leadership at Willow Creek to confirm adherence to current and projected CDC guidelines. We desire for Dads Camp 2021 to have the best policies and procedures in place to keep our campers and staff safe this summer. As guidelines change, we will adjust accordingly and keep you informed of how that impacts Dads Camp.


Due to the increased planning and changing guidelines, we will be delaying Dads Camp registration to April 12-22. Please check out our updated summer dates as they have also changed.




We hope you'll be able to join us this summer!

Frequently-Asked Questions

Yes! We are going to extend the age to 13 for this summer. While we can’t guarantee that everyone will receive a spot, we are encouraging you to submit a request through our usual registration process next year. Please note that this will be for the 2021 Camp season only.

The dates for next summer will be posted on our website here. Registration will be April 12-22. It’s always a good idea to sign up for our E-News here to receive reminder emails so that you don’t miss it!

Yes. There will be specified locations at Camp Paradise where masks will be required. Face masks or coverings are to be worn both indoors and outdoors when unable to physically distance (6-feet or more). Masks are required at all times when indoors and will be given to participants that don’t have one.

No, you will not be required to have the vaccine or get a COVID-19 test prior to attending Dads Camp.

Yes, there will be a 60% capacity limit this summer. This capacity limit follows the three-household protocol from the state of Michigan, making it possible to place three family units per cabin and per meal table in the dining hall. It also allows the combination of campers and summer staff team to remain below a 100 person capacity threshold at both the Dining Hall and Chapel.

Campers will sit with their designated cabin in the dining hall. Masks are required in the dining hall when not seated at tables to eat or drink. Participants will be served by kitchen staff or be given pre-packaged (individually prepared) meals.

This summer, we’re allowing 3 pairs of campers per cabin. This is in alignment with the current order from the state of Michigan that requires no more than three households to dine or lodge together.

Yes. One thing we’ve learned through this pandemic is the importance of pivoting. There is a new governor’s order being released on April 19, which could impact these policies. If COVID-19 cases in Michigan increase or decrease, we may need to adjust accordingly.
