Dear Witchlets Community,
We are excited to announce that registration will be open for Camp 2022 on March 20th! The dates of camp are August 6-10, 2022. There are some requirements which are described below.
We support each family in making the safest decision for its members, and our policies are intended to reduce risk as much as possible for the community as a whole. We understand that not everyone will be able to attend or choose to attend, given the restrictions. These requirements are FOR THIS YEAR ONLY, and we are choosing to follow them to keep Witchlets alive during this pandemic time. We look forward to having everyone at camp when that becomes possible again! All of you are important to our community, and we can’t wait until we can all be together again in the redwoods without restrictions.
Requirements for Camp:
This year we are requiring that all attendees aged 12+ be vaccinated against Covid-19 before camp, having at least 2 doses.
We are collecting documentation of vaccination from campers, as well as ensuring we have contact information in case of need for contact tracing after camp. We will need a photo/ scan of your vaccine card to be uploaded with registration or emailed to us, at least two weeks before camp. We are requiring this for ages 12 and over only, however if you are willing to share all COVID-19 vaccine records for your younger family members, that would be appreciated.
In addition, we will have expectations for safe practices at camp, based on California state guidelines for group events. We are still developing these plans and will share them when they are finalized, but they will include wearing masks at all or most group gatherings (such as path, rituals, and workshops), and may include some type of physical distancing.
We are also working with the Woodlands and the kitchen staff to develop a safety plan for dining and kitchen work. Outdoor dining will be expanded.
There is no policy we can develop that will completely eliminate all risk. This will be reflected in the updated camp waiver and we ask that you read it carefully.
We have created a video you can view online showing the registration steps for multiple family members.. The link to the video is here: https://youtu.be/OkVnM1fOVAg
Registration will open on Sunday, March 20th at noon. You will be able to find the link to register on the website, https://www.witchlets.org/registration
Fees will be on a sliding scale:
Youth (age 5-25) $320-160
Children 0-4 Free
Elder Adult (age 60+) $320-160
At registration, we will collect a $50 deposit per camper. Payment plans and financial assistance available, please reach out to regarding work-trade, teaching, financial assistance and any other questions.
If we have to cancel camp unexpectedly, all payments (including deposit) will be refunded to campers.
In addition to the requirements listed above, we ask that all campers adhere to our COVID Safety Guidelines and Agreements.
The camp story
In 2022, we'll work with the myth of the Selkie, the shape-shifting seal beings of Eireann (Ireland) and Scoti (Scotland). We'll send the story out as we move closer to camp. Stay tuned!
Would you like to help with a specific camp task? We would be grateful for help with specific tasks for camp such as organizing work shifts, setting up lights, organizing the raffle, emceeing the talent show, and organizing workshops. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you might be interested or want to know more!
As we gather in the redwoods, we will be holding the entire community in our hearts and spirits, whether you are there in body or not, and we look forward to future years when we can welcome everyone back in person.
