Youthquake Covid Precautions

The Youth A-Team is working with healthcare professionals from within our presbytery to make Youthquake as safe as possible.

We have been advised to use the same procedures as all AR overnight camps. In order to attend Youthquake, all participants will choose to either 1) report vaccination against Covid-19 or 2) to bring a negative Covid test taken within 48 hours of 8pm Friday, September 24. This combination of vaccinations and negative tests should significantly reduce the possibility of spreading Covid-19.

We are also taking the following precautions:

  • Everyone will mask indoors regardless of vaccination status per Ferncliff’s policy.
  • As much of Youthquake as possible will happen outside! Baring inclement weather, all large group gatherings will happen in the open-air J-Mo Chapel.
  • Rooming will be divided by gender and region (ie – NWA will room together).
  • Individuals and youth groups can choose to find off-site housing at their own expense and only spend the days at Ferncliff. Please let Brianne know if you are going this route.
  • A PA has agreed to be our medical support for the weekend. She will monitor any health concerns and can administer over-the-counter rapid Covid tests if needed.

We will continue to monitor the changing Covid-19 situation in Arkansas and will update this information as needed. This was last updated 8/23/21.

We’re inviting you to join us for Youthquake 2021 from September 24-26, 2021 at Ferncliff Camp and Conference Center!
