Staying Safe in the Time of Covid19 (updated March 5, 2022)
Welcome campers and families! After two years of living in a pandemic, we can all appreciate the opportunity to get outside to be in nature and be off our screens.
We had a successful summer 2021 at Redwood Adventure Camp and expect to have another great summer this year. We’re asking campers and staff to make smart decisions, stay flexible, be patient, and be kind to help protect yourself and others around you.
Our mask and vaccine policy is based on local, state, and federal regulations plus best practices for summer camps across the country. We must all remain flexible in our thinking and planning. These policies are subject to change, and we will do our best to communicate those changes and what they mean for our camping programs. As new guidance emerges and the science develops, we continuously seek ways to minimize risk to the community.
- If eligible, staff, volunteers, campers, and family members should get fully vaccinated for COVID-19. Ideally, wait 2 weeks after completing vaccination for COVID-19 before traveling to camp.
- Redwood Adventure Camp will not require vaccines for campers or staff.
- If a camper or staff member has been vaccinated, we request that a copy of COVID vaccination be included in the health history/vaccinations section of the application.
- We will follow whatever the current state and local guidelines are regarding wask mearing.
The Most Important Thing
If you’re sick, if anyone in your family is sick, or if you suspect having been exposed to someone who is sick, please stay home. Cancellations due to COVID will receive a 100% refund.
Medical Checks / Health
Upon arrival all campers have health checks every year at Camp. This year will be no different. However, this year the healthcheck will include questions about exposure to COVID.
While we are doing everything in our power to keep COVID19 out of camp, nothing can make any location 100% impervious to risk. In the event of a potential exposure, we will immediately inform parents/legal guardians about any potential contact their children may have had with suspected or confirmed cases. We will immediately inform parents/legal guardians if their children are experiencing any symptoms. If a child is experiencing any symptoms, the camper will need to be picked up from Camp by the parent/legal guardian immediately to recover and/or seek appropriate medical attention.
If Redwood Adventure Camp cancels a session, all campers will receive a 100% refund of all fees paid including the deposit.
If a camper must go home mid session due to COVID symptoms, refunds will be prorated based on the time spent at Camp.
Please know that our COVID-19 protocols and procedures follow all requirements and the Lowest Risk and Best Practices protocols from the following:
- CDC’s Guidelines for Youth and Summer Programs
- American Camp Association Field Guide for Camps on Implementation of CDC Guidelines
- CA Department of PublicHealth Blueprint for a Safer Economy
- Licensing inspection by Mendocino County Department of Public Health is required before camp opens.
