Huntington Lake Overnight Camp Policy


We continue to believe in vaccinations as a part of a broad strategy to keep kids healthy at camp. The last thing we want is for anyone to get sick, and vaccinations play a role in mitigating the risk of serious illness. Having said that, we recognize that each family has different circumstances and makes decisions for their own children. So, we do have a policy that allows medical or personal exemptions.

If you will not consider any particular childhood recommended vaccination for your camper, you must have sufficient insurance to cover cancellation fees if a requirement is necessary later on. We want kids to experience camp and also for your investment to be protected! If a government agency imposes a vaccine requirement for camp attendance, or our own medical team makes a decision to require a specific vaccine, we would not consider this a reason to offer a refund. We can promise you that we would never arbitrarily make a decision. It would be imposed on us or recommended by our medical team.

Covid Testing
We may ask you to administer simple pre arrival COVID-19 tests for campers on the day of arrival. We would ask for photo evidence as part of Opening Day drop off. We would test any camper upon arrival that cannot show us evidence of a negative test. There would be a $20 fee for any test we conduct.

We continue to stay up to date with requirements and recommendations from the CDC, CDPH, CalOSHA, the County of Santa Cruz, and the American Camp Association.
