About Fall Con 2021
Our “1D” experiences of Jesus have left us disappointed, disillusioned, and dissatisfied with Jesus and religion. Our understanding of Jesus and Christianity don’t seem to be enough as we face mental health challenges, social injustices and pain in our world today. We need more. And the good news is that Jesus has more for us. We have limited Him but now He wants to show us more of who He is and what He has for us personally, our communities and the world around us. Jesus wants to invite you to live a 3D life. He wants to give you a 3D relationship with Him.

Rev. Dr. James Choung serves as Vice President of Strategy & Innovation — overseeing evangelism, discipleship, planting, growth, missions, multiethnic initiatives, and the Creative Labs — at InterVarsity Christian Fellowship USA. He is also ordained with the Vineyard USA, and has written three books — the latest being Longing for Revival. He speaks frequently and consults at campuses, churches, seminaries, and conferences, and most recently taught a doctoral course on evangelism at Fuller Theological Seminary. He is thankful that his work has been featured in Christianity Today, Leadership Journal, Outreach Magazine, Seminary Now, and exploregod.com.
James wrote his D. Min. dissertation on postmodern leadership development also at Fuller Theological Seminary, received his M. Div. from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and studied management science and marketing at MIT. He has previously served on the pastoral staff of a Boston-area urban church plant, of a megachurch in Seoul, and led an LA-adjacent house church. As for other interests, he has led worship at various national conferences including the Urbana Student Missions Conference, and serves on boards for higher education and overseas for-profit and non-profit startups. For fun, he likes to travel with his wife, laugh with his two sons, spoil his daughter, bask in Los Angeles’ endless summer, and swing a racket in hopes of playing something like tennis.

Screening for Fall Con Guests and Staff
All campers are asked to self-monitor for COVID symptoms.
Everyone arriving on the ferry dock will be asked standard COVID-19 related health screening questions prior to check-in. This data will be reviewed by a sole HIPAA trained administrator.
Any camper, and their housemates, showing any signs or symptoms of illness at arrival on the dock, will be asked to return home.
To help prevent the spread, InterVarsity requires all people, regardless of vaccination status, obtain a negative PCR test no more than 72 hours prior to arrival or a rapid antigen test no more than 24 hours prior to arrival.
Face coverings are required while indoors and strongly recommended for all campers outdoors from the time of boarding the ferry to return at the dock with the exception of while eating, sleeping or participating in water activities. If a camper is outdoors and a distance of 6ft or more can be consistently maintained, the mask may be removed.
Cleaning & Disinfection
CBS staff performs thorough cleaning in high-traffic areas such as dining areas, kitchens, and areas of entry and exit including stairways, stairwells, and handrails.
Public spaces throughout camp are equipped with proper sanitation products to include hand washing stations, hand sanitizer and/or sanitizing wipes.
Products used for cleaning are approved for use against COVID-19 on the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-approved list and responsibly used according to product instructions.
In the event of a presumptive case of COVID-19, the tent and bed of the camper will undergo an enhanced sanitization protocol in accordance with CDC guidelines. Should this occur, the room will not be returned to service until the case has been confirmed or cleared. Campers will be isolated according to county guidelines.
Why Are We Screening?
InterVarsity and CBS endeavor to do whatever it takes to maintain the highest standard of camper safety while preventing unnecessary disruptions in the camp experience.
We want CBS to remain open so that every person who experiences camp can fully enjoy the recreational and life-changing spiritual impact we all know and love. We are aware that there are many well-intentioned opinions regarding COVID-19, testing, and vaccinations among our constituency. Current California overnight camping guidelines also recommend testing as an essential COVID-19 mitigation strategy.
CBS is considered an "Organized Overnight Camp" in the eyes of the State and, as such, falls under Organized Camp requirements, guidelines, and CAL/OSHA regulations. Because of this, certain COVID-related freedoms that restaurants, retail, businesses, and even churches might enjoy do not generally extend to overnight camps. The reason for this is because CBS’s camper populations generally sleep, eat, and interact closely with one another for the duration of their stay.
Type of Testing Acceptable
PCR or Rapid Antigen Tests administered at a doctor’s office, clinic, hospital, urgent care, school, pharmacy, county or public health departments, etc., and verified by a licensed healthcare or testing professional (non-family member).
What is Antigen testing?
Antigen tests detect proteins of the SARS-CoV-2 virus that form during the infection cycle and indicate that a person has an active infection. Rapid antigen tests offer several important benefits. They are highly portable, scalable, easy-to-use and provide a flexible approach to helping more people in more places get access to reliable testing in a cost effective way.
Symptoms Develop After Arrival at Camp
What happens if a camper comes down with Covid symptoms following their arrival at CBS?
The camper will be quarantined in a separate cabin.
The bed/cabin where the camper was residing will be disinfected according to County Health Guidelines.
Any campers who have been in the same housing unit, will be asked to stay in a secluded cohort for any activities and monitor their symptoms.
Rapid Covid tests will be available to campers that have Covid symptoms.
If a camper needs medical attention, LA County Fire transport will be contacted to have the camper transported to the medical clinic and may be individually transported off the island.
