Safety: As participant safety is a high priority for all AMC-sponsored events, procedures and policies have been developed to attempt to limit participant risk. Participants are expected to work with staff and volunteers to reduce risks and make the experience successful for all. In case of an emergency, AMC volunteer activity leaders are trained in wilderness first aid, carry first-aid kits, and follow an emergency action plan. The AMC uses cell phones or other communication devices -- although these are not reliable in all locations and conditions. Despite such steps, parents and participants should be aware that there are risks associated with outdoor adventure activities, including but not limited to adverse weather and environmental conditions, remote locations of our trips and camps, and transportation in vehicles, on foot, by boat, or on a bike. Please carefully read and sign the Volunteer-led Camps & Cabins Acknowledgement and Assumption of Risks and Release and Indemnity Agreement and call if you have any questions. Parents’ and participants’ understanding of these risks and adherence to our policies and procedures can contribute to making this experience rewarding.

If you provide a cell number, we may call or text that number in an emergency on travel days.

Please review your information before submitting the application.

In the event of Camp cancellation or interruption due to COVID-related restrictions or other unforeseeable events, August Camp would return all or part of the camp registration fees to affected campers, with the amount depending on the timing of such interruption or cancellation.

If an entire camp is canceled due to State of Maine regulations, the full amount will be refunded

If, within 14 days prior to arrival to August Camp, you are experiencing symptoms of COVID or have been exposed to COVID please do not come to camp.  If you experience COVID symptoms while at camp, you will be asked to leave. The Registrar will discuss your reservation options at that time.

Camper expenses outside the registration fees, such as travel expenses, are not the responsibility of August Camp. August Camp strongly recommends that Campers purchase travel insurance to cover expenses in the case of personal cancellation and also in the case of camp cancellation. If you choose to purchase such insurance, verify with your insurer that it covers cancellation for any reason.
The Covid pandemic poses an ever-changing situation as we prepare for August Camp 2021. The August Camp Committee is working with the AMC, Little Lyford Camp, and other agencies to ensure the camp environment is safe, healthy, and enjoyable for the entire August Camp community. It is essential that campers fully understand the structure of this year’s camp, changes in lodging and transportation, and a camper’s responsibilities should they become ill.

-August Camp will comply with all AMC, State of Maine, and local regulations related to the Covid pandemic. Campers will be expected to observe all designated Covid-safe practices throughout their stay at Little Lyford Camp. This may include social distancing, wearing masks, hygiene practice, etc.

-All campers will be expected to arrive at camp symptom-free of Covid, in good health, and having observed Covid-safe practices in the days leading up to camp.

-Campers are asked to give careful consideration to their travel plans to camp so that they can be more certain to remain Covid-free. August Camp will not have a fleet of vans, so there will not be a shuttle service available to/from public transportation.

-Campers rooming/traveling together will be considered to be part of the same “bubble.” Should a camper become ill, both that person and others in their “bubble” will be asked to leave camp. Transportation from camp will be the camper’s responsibility.
