2021 COVID Protocols


From the TIFD Board:

“The TIFD Board is dedicated to making this event a joyous celebration, and to keep each other safe.  Towards that end, we’re introducing some changes from previous years’ in person events.

We support that each person’s personal situation is different. Using extensive research and experience from recent in-person events, we’ve carefully designed these protocols to maximize our community’s safety, while still preserving the most precious elements of Texas Camp.

 For those who will join us for this event, please carefully review the safety protocols outlined below. Together we’ll practice new ways to support what we love while we protect our health and safety.”

If after reviewing these protocols, you still have questions or concerns, we want to hear from you. Please email us at campchairs21@tifd.org


  • Submit proof of vaccination
    • All campers must be fully vaccinated.
    • Email a scan of your vac card to registrar@tifd.org by November 15th.
    • If you’re not comfortable emailing a copy of your vaccination card, we will set up a Zoom call with you. At that video call, you can show us your information. Email registrar@tifd.org to set up a Zoom session.
    • TIFD will not retain any vaccination records received as a part of camper registration.
  • Submit evidence of negative covid test taken within 72 hours prior to camp
