Covid-19 Information

Summer 2022
(updated 3/28/22)

We are committed to running a quality program focused on the physical and emotional health of our campers and staff. The guidelines and recommendations established by the American Camp Association, the Centers for Disease Control, state officials and our local health department will serve as the framework for our COVID safety protocols.

While the risk of contracting COVID cannot be eliminated, Walton’s Grizzly Lodge is well suited for most of the current recommendations. As the situation evolves, we will assess and adjust as needed. Some activities and events may be altered based on current health recommendations.

Vaccination: COVID-19 vaccinations are required for all campers and program staff for the 2022 season. This includes updating vaccination boosters when recommended by the CDC.

Pre-camp COVID Testing: Proof of a negative COVID test for campers prior to camp arrival may be required. We anticipate making a decision about testing requirements in May.

Masking / Cohorting: With community-wide vaccination, we do not anticipate needing to mask or cohort.

Health Services: Healthcare staff conduct daily screenings to assess for illness. CDC guidance for isolation and quarantine of sick campers and those with exposure or suspected or confirmed COVID infection, will be followed.

Transportation: We plan to offer pick-up and drop-off at the Reno airport for campers who fly to camp. More information about our procedures, including arrival and departure windows, can be found on our website: Getting to and From Camp. We recommend waiting to make airline reservations until closer to your child’s session as travel and health recommendations may change.

Opening Day: We will continue our drive-through format for drop-off on Opening Day of each session. We found this process to be a smooth transition for campers and parents. The drive-through health screening will include a temperature check, covid vaccination confirmation, medication drop-off and lice screening.

Program: We plan to offer our off-site horseback riding program and out of camp opportunities (during our two week sessions) with modifications as needed. However, we cannot guarantee these two programs will be provided for Summer 2022.
