Covid-19 Policy and Alternatives for In-person Camp Sessions
We look forward to exploring the wetlands with youth in-person again this summer! In-person camps are held entirely outside in the wetlands. Our summer camp Covid-19 safety policy will follow state and county guidelines at the time of the camp. The Covid-19 safety policy will be provided to the participants prior to the start of camp and may include items such as campers being required to wear face coverings.
We will be flexible, follow appropriate Covid-19 guidance, and will be prepared to offer a virtual alternative if an in-person camp needs to be cancelled due to a change in state or county restrictions.
In the event state or county guidelines prevent us from leading in-person camps, campers have the option of pivoting to the virtual alternative (at a reduced price) and receiving a refund amount in the difference between the cost of the in-person and virtual camp or cancelling their reservation and receiving a full refund, less a $10 administrative fee.
