Dear friends,

Over the past two months, the Camp Kintail board has been working to create a vaccination policy.  We are mindful that this is a topic that has been divisive.  Please know that the Board has consulted widely with summer camp professionals, health care providers, public health, and staff members.  We hope that these policies will provide a safe environment and allow for participation.  

Rental Groups, School Groups, & Weddings

All Camp Kintail rental groups, school groups, and weddings must follow all public health requirements of Huron Perth Public Health and the province of Ontario.  Additional protections may also be required.

Camp Kintail Staff

All Camp Kintail staff members must be fully vaccinated and boosted before the beginning of employment.  If a staff member has a medical exemption, proof of exemption must be provided to Camp Kintail a month before start of employment.  All public health requirements of Huron Perth Public Health and the province of Ontario will be followed, and additional protections may also be required. 

Camp Kintail Summer Campers (Day, Overnight, and Weekend Away)

Camp Kintail encourages all campers and guests to become vaccinated against COVID-19 as an expression of community care and safety.  Public Health Ontario and the National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) recommend vaccination for all people aged 5 and over.  While vaccinations are strongly encouraged, they are not mandatory for participation in a Camp Kintail summer program. All public health requirements of Huron Perth Public Health and the province of Ontario will be followed, and additional protections may also be required. 

Camp Kintail Summer COVID-19 Protocols

Guidance from the Ministry of Health and Ontario Camps Association is changing regularly.  We anticipate having summer protocols in place by early June.  Camp Kintail’s protocols will be put in place to protect the health and safety of all campers, staff, and guests, and will meet or exceed the minimum requirements of the government.  Measures may include cohorting, distancing, masking, and rapid testing.  

We understand that for some, these policies will be too strict, and that for others, they will be too lenient.  If your family is not comfortable with these policies, you can email Theresa ([email protected]) to change your registration.  If you have any additional concerns or questions, please reach out to Theresa for a conversation.
