The August Camp Committee continues to monitor the changing COVID guidelines. We will be updating protocols for this summer’s camp in consultation with AMC and in consideration of Washington State guidelines, and are committed to communicating that information to campers in a timely way. AMC will require program participants be fully vaccinated, or share the results of a negative PCR COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours of your program start. Any COVID-19 vaccine approved by the World Health Organization (WHO) is an acceptable vaccine for the purposes of this policy. Fully vaccinated is defined by the CDC here. Campers will need to submit a copy of their vaccination card with their registration forms once they have been accepted to camp.
The COVID pandemic poses an ever-changing situation as we prepare for August Camp 2022. The August Camp Committee is working with the AMC, 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 and a camper’s responsibilities should they become ill.
- August Camp will comply with all AMC, State of Washington, and local regulations related to the COVID pandemic. Campers will be expected to observe all designated COVID-safe practices throughout their stay at 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.
- Should a camper become ill, they will be asked to leave camp. Transportation from camp will be the camper’s responsibility.
