Hi all,

I'm just wondering, are your camps mandating Covid vaccine for campers this year?  Our camp is requiring the vaccine for all staff, but a decision has not been made regarding campers.

Not mandatory for campers, encouraged for staff.

Some international staff are required though by their staffing agency though from what I understand.

Mandatory for campers and stafff over age 5. Must have negative covid test 2 days prior to start of camp; all campers and staff are retested on arrival day --we retested 5 days later last year and then masks came off.  No positive tests last year.  Campers living outside the US were tested 2-3 days prior  to leaving camp per requirements of country they live in as negative test required for reentry.

We are waiting until it gets closer to camp to see what current CDC recommendations are regarding covid testing.
