As many of our campers are elderly and or immune-compromised, NW Sufi Camp will require proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 for all campers and proof of booster shots as appropriate and approved by the CDC. In addition, all campers should bring a rapid home test to take upon arrival at camp and bring two additional test kits with them for routine follow-up testing every other day while at camp. All Cedar Ridge staff who may come into contact with campers will also be fully vaccinated.
Through many months the NWSC Board has been following the development of the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the current recommendations of the CDC. We’ve held conversations with Cedar Ridge and with our teachers. Out of an abundance of caution and respect for our many elder and/or immune-compromised campers, NWSC will require proof of COVID vaccination and boosters for all campers (as appropriate for age) and follow current CDC guidelines regarding additional safety measures. We believe this approach will reduce the likelihood of COVID transmission within this year’s camp.
As the CDC now recommends masking indoors in public places, we will be requiring masks be worn while in the dining room area, except when actively eating. Plenty of covered outdoor dining areas will be available, and outdoor dining is highly recommended!
Rapid tests will be available at our nursing station if you should develop symptoms while at camp. If you do develop symptoms, we ask that you test promptly and isolate if the test is positive. We will help you make arrangements to leave camp as soon as possible to prevent further outbreak and refund you a prorated amount of your camp fee.
The online registration form will include a field to upload documentation of vaccination status.
Again, if you develop symptoms or test positive before the start of camp, please stay home and NWSC will refund your camp fee.
Thank you for helping us to hold camp safely; we look forward to being together again!
