The Department of Health has released updated guidelines for day and overnight summer camps in New Jersey.
The updated guidance allows for greater freedom for campers and staff with no mask requirement outdoors.
Overnight camps will require pre-arrival screening and testing, post-arrival testing and the same infection control strategies required of day camps with some unique considerations given to the residential bunk living at overnight camps. 
The testing protocols in the guidance are similar to those implemented in Maine and Texas, which opened successfully last summer.
