COVID-19 and CAMP

A Note from the Executive Director

Dear Camp Families and Camp Fire Wilani Supporters:
  • We are moving forward with camp planning and registration. Our staff is hired, and we are in the process of refining our policies and procedures to best mitigate the circumstances as they unfold. We take safety and sanitation very seriously, and we are looking at ways to expand the systems we already have in place.
  • We are taking an optimistic view that we will successfully “flatten the curve” by participating in effective social distancing and get to the point where gatherings are safe again. We will be capping our camp sessions at 25 campers which makes it easier to have fewer kids in cabins and to space out activities if needed. That also means space is limited.
  • Our resident camps don’t begin until Late July-August, so that gives many months for this crisis to unfold and potentially resolve. For Day Camp, which is entirely outside, we are looking at no-touch games and activities. Camp has many handwashing stations, and we are exploring many possibilities with help from Lane County Public Health.
  • If you sign your child up for camp and we do not hold camp, you get a full refund plus your deposit. That is just how it will go. We will be holding funds aside until we are 100% sure. We won’t charge you for a service we cannot offer.
  • If schools are in, we are a 100% go, that will be an early indicator. If not, we will evaluate the situation week by week, and keep in touch with parents/guardians.
  • It’s a safe bet to sign up. Take advantage of the Early Bird discount right now, and save your spot. If we don’t have camp, you don’t pay for camp.
