COVID-19 Guidelines for Guests

COVID-19 Information

Overview

Please note that IAWAH is continuing to move forward in a safe way, based on Ontario’s Roadmap to Reopen. For summer 2022, we are offering, Summer Camps,  Campground and Youth Development Programs to guests. 

Below you’ll find responses to several Frequently Asked Questions. As you know, circumstances continue to evolve, and we will do our best to provide you with new information as it becomes available

Summer Camps & YDLP

The overall safety of our guests, volunteers, and staff team is extremely important. IAWAH will continue to promote guest safety through enhanced cleaning routines, increased hand-washing protocols and by strictly following the guidance of the local health authorities. IAWAH works closely with our local public health to implement and follow operating protocols and recommendations for camps. Unless guidelines change, for spring and and summer 2022, IAWAH does not require Rapid Antigen Testing upon arrival, or proof of vaccination for campers and guests. All staff will be routinely tested throughout the spring and summer and will constantly self-monitor for any symptoms of COVID-19.

  • As best as possible, please keep your young camper away from large indoor gatherings to minimize the risk of exposure for at least 5 days before arrival to camp. We don’t expect complete isolation, but monitoring activity will be helpful.
  • Please continue to monitor for any symptoms of Covid before arrival and follow through with a PCR test is necessary.

We will not be testing upon arrival, but strongly encourage each camper to take a Rapid Antigen Test before coming to camp. These can be obtained for free from several locations such as your local pharmacy.

Although we strongly suggest that all eligible children be vaccinated, Camp IAWAH will not require campers to be fully vaccinated to participate in its programs.We also don’t require campers to disclose their vaccination status.

  • We have created a second dining area to isolate difference programs of camp. The extra space also allows for less concentration of people in a enclosed environment.
  • All staff will be tested each week prior to your camper’s arrival and will self-monitor for any symptoms each day.
    Extra hand-washing stations are in place and everyone entering buildings such as the dining hall are required to sanitize their hands.
  • If you prefer that your child wears a mask while indoors, we will provide clean masks as necessary.
  • This summer, we will have 2 medical staff on site to deal with any potential out-breaks.

Although we could never guarantee that IAWAH will be Covid free, together we can do our part to mitigate the spread. Thank you for your cooperation.
