What to Expect at VINS Nature Camp this Summer

VINS Nature Camp is excited to run camp programs this summer season and we look forward to sharing the wonders of the natural world with your child.  Our general COVID Safety Protocols for the summer season are outlined below.  More detailed information will be provided to families prior to the start of camp.  Please remember that all guidelines are subject to change.

Stay Home if Sick:

  • Any camper who has symptoms of COVID-19 (regardless of vaccination status) should stay home and contact VINS Nature Camp about returning to camp.

Vaccines:

  • VINS Nature Camp strongly encourages all camp participants, who are eligible, to get vaccinated for COVID-19 and to stay up-to-date on vaccinations to protect their health and our camp community.

Masks:

  • VINS Nature Camp is not requiring masks at camp this summer but we do encourage them to be worn indoors.
  • Parents/guardians may make decisions regarding masking for their child(ren) based on their level of risk.  At this time, the Center for Disease Control does recommends that individuals wear masks indoors when COVID-19 Community Levels are high.

Cancellations:

  • For the 2022 Summer Camp season, VINS has implemented revised cancellation policies to allow the greatest flexibility for our camp families during these uncertain times.
  • Refunds are subject to a $35 cancellation fee per child, and will be given according to the following schedule:
    • If requested at least two weeks before the first day of camp, you will receive a full refund (less a $35 cancellation fee).
    • If requested less than two weeks before the first day of camp, we will be unable to issue a refund.
  • VINS will not provide refunds if a child misses one or more days of camp due to dismissal, illness, unexpected family obligations, or any other unforeseen factor including if they develop symptoms of COVID-19 prior to or during their camp session.

We look forward to welcoming campers to VINS Nature Camp for a dose of outdoor fun, adventure, and learning with friends in a safe environment.
