Yes. During the summer of 2021, Camp Woodcraft successfully hosted 269 campers over the course of 4 sessions with zero on-site transmission.
During the academic year, we also operate in-person programming K-12 students throughout the pandemic in partnership with local school districts. We have experienced zero on-site transmission during our programming and our safety protocols have been refined throughout. Many of our camp staff have been leading these programs at schools and have experience developing engaging programs while adhering to COVID-19 compliance per public guidelines.
Our health center will conduct any check-ins with campers in an outdoor and discrete area when permissible. The indoor health center will be used as needed and will be separate from isolation areas. Check-in areas will be in different areas.
Two nurses will be on-site and available 24/7 to campers and staff to administer first aid, medications, and general care as needed. In the event of a suspected Covid-19 case, a nurse will oversee isolation per current guidelines.
For illnesses and medical emergencies requiring additional assistance, we follow appropriate EMS procedures. The closest hospital is approximately one hour from camp, with emergency helicopter transportation available if needed for a faster transport time. It’s Safety First at Camp Woodcraft!
Camp Woodcraft is running at partial capacity during the summer, and plans to host 120 campers per week. This summer our counselor to camper ratio is 1:8.
Any camper coming into California from another state will need to comply with Camp Woodcraft’s Covid policies, be vaccinated, need to arrive and quarantine for 14 days prior to camp, and have a negative Covid-19 test result.
All camp registrations require a 25% deposit that is refundable if state or local guidelines or low enrollment prevents camp from operating during the week(s) for which your child is registered or if your child is unable to attend due to illness or a recent Covid-19 exposure experienced by a member of your household.
