Camp Wanapitei’s response to COVID-19
April 30 2022
Camp Wanapitei is working with our medical staff and local health unit to determine our guidelines for managing COVID-19 this summer. We will continue to update our families and staff as the summer gets closer. Please note that the following steps WILL be part of our summer plans:
Vaccination Policy: Camp Wanapitei requires all campers, staff, guests, (overnight guests and guests coming to banquets or meals) who are eligible to be vaccinated against COVID-19 for Summer 2022 unless they have a documented medical exemption signed by a physician. This policy will remain in place regardless of any changes to provincial or federal mandates.
Day visitors (ex., those dropping off or picking up campers) will be required to wear a mask when on property.
Masks: All campers should plan to pack masks. Campers will wear masks when using camp transportation (bussing to/from camp, shuttle vans or buses to/from trip).
Self-screening: Camper families and staff are expected to self-screen for symptoms of COVID-19 in the days leading up to camp. Campers or staff displaying cold or flu symptoms will not be permitted to start camp until they are well. Should a delayed start not work for the family or camp (i.e. the canoe trip departs before the child is able to attend), every effort to offer the camper an alternate program date later in the summer or a medical cancellation (balance less 15%) refund may be available.

We are continuing to monitor other COVID-19 regulations as they are released from our local public health unit and the Ministry of Health.
