HEALTH & SAFETY
The safety of our campers and volunteers is our first priority, and as a result, we aim to be conservative in our COVID-19 policies. We continuously monitor evolving protocols, engage with health experts, and share best practices with other safety-conscious camps. We will keep parents informed of our latest thinking, and communicate our guidelines and policies with registered families as we get closer to camp.
HEALTH & WELLNESS
Our health center team, staffed by physicians, is available 24/7 while we are at camp. Prior to arrival, we collect medical history and allergy forms for all campers, and speak to families about any needs pertinent to campers’ health while at camp. Medications are administered as directed by parents. Our team is equipped to address any issues that arise at camp to ensure the physical and emotional well-being of our campers. If needed, we are 20 minutes away from Speare Memorial Hospital.
To ensure the safety of our campers, we adhere to the following policies:
Supervised activities with roll call at every activity and meals
2 nightly checks covering all campers
~ 4:1 ratio of campers to adult staff/volunteers
No phones & electronic devices for campers while at camp
Daily camp email to parents
Cabin volunteers communicate with parents as needed to handle imminent issues/concerns
All campers, counselors and parent volunteers must attend camp for its entire duration
All adult volunteers and Camp Wico staff are CORI-checked and verified prior to camp
