COVID-19 Updates: 

WilderSkills programs intend to comply with local regulations pertaining to public gatherings and COVID-19 Guidance. PPE Gear: Students will be required to bring a cloth face covering to have with them (for example, a bandana or ski buff). Students will also be asked to bring personal hand cleaner. We will also look to have hand sanitation supplies on-hand for the group. Covid-19 Camp Adjustments: At present, group sizes will be limited as necessary per State and local guidance requirements given, and camp Covid-19 program protocols updated accordingly as well. ***That said – There are no guarantees possible when it comes to being 100% certain that camp Covid-19 protocols will be full-proof. It must be understood by families, that risk is always present when gathering in public. WilderSkills also asks that families comply with the advice of your family’s medical physician in determining if your child should attend due to inherent risks with regard to public gatherings. This is especially important if anyone in the house is potentially immunocompromised. Illness & Covid-19 Refunds: As a precaution, if a camper becomes ill for any reason during camp, we ask that they do not attend again until a doctor has provided written documentation that they are safe to come back to camp. Additionally, if a camper or family member is diagnosed with COVID-19, we ask that the camper no longer attend the camp session. A refund will be granted in such a case, with written proof of positive COVID-19 test results of a household member or the camper being provided.
