While we are planning on a return to overnight camps, due to the evolving nature of the pandemic it is too early to share what possible guidelines for gathering will still be in place, especially concerning masking, co-horting (living in a distanced group and not interacting unless masked indoors and if closer than 2 m) or what our procedures for drop-off and pick-up will be.
New for 2022 – COVID-19 Vaccinations
Neither the province of Ontario nor the Ontario Camps Association has provided any direction on vaccinations yet.
We strongly believe that a vaccination policy is necessary at this time to continue offering safe programs to young people. Achieving high vaccination rates is part of a global campaign to reduce the risks of transmissions, and Camp Huron is committed to doing our part to protect public health.
We are implementing this policy because the health and wellbeing of our staff and participants is our top priority, and as such, we continue to evolve our policies in response to the dynamic nature of the virus.
As Camp Huron is part of the Diocese of Huron, all staff and volunteers are required to present proof of full vaccination at least 14 days before arriving at camp.
In order to protect our staff, campers will be required to be vaccinated as well. We are working on the language for this upcoming policy and a way that families can share or upload their information by Easter.
Please note that all medical information you put in Camp Huron’s Medical Form it is kept confidential and shared only with those persons who need it in order to care for your child.
We hope that if you have not gotten your children vaccinated this will give you more time.
You can find out more information here:

Exemptions for medical or human rights considerations will be considered on a case by case basis.

Campers do not have to be vaccinated in order to register. Please watch for updates in the months to come. Until we have a comprehensive vaccination policy and procedures in place we are going to leave the Camper Medical Form offline, which means you can sign up today and come back to fill it out later.
