The safety and health of campers, guests, and staff is always the highest priority at Camp Geddie. We have a long history of taking great care to develop and maintain practices to provide participants with safe and high-quality camp experiences.
With the spread of COVID-19 within Canada and globally, we are paying attention, just like you. We have been reviewing our current policies and considering the extra steps we need to include in our current cleaning routines to reduce the risk of COVID-19.
As we prepare for Summer Camp, we continue to monitor developments as the current situation evolves. We will keep you updated as new information becomes available and do our best to help you plan for your summer too. Updates and information will be posted here as well as on the Camp Geddie Facebook page.
Camp Geddie is accredited by the Camping Association of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island (CANSPEI), and has been for many years. Planning for and preparing for a wide variety of situations, both common and rare, is part of the accreditation process. That’s why we have a communicable disease plan in place and have for quite some time.
In addition to annual inspections of Camp Geddie conducted by Environment Nova Scotia, we work closely with various organizations each summer preparing for the arrival of campers and summer camp staff. We will continue to review and revise our plan in cooperation with Health Department officials as additional COVID-19 guidance is provided by Environment Nova Scotia, CANSPEI, the Government of Canada Coronavirus Update Center and the Center for Disease Control.
If you have any health-care-related concerns or questions, please contact us and we will be happy to speak with you. The office phone number is (902)926-2632, or you can reach us by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
One More Thing…
We believe the fun, faith-forming experience Camp Geddie offers – being outside, unplugged, in a loving, Christ-centered community – is something every child deserves.
We also understand families need to make their own best decisions. Choosing to send your child to any camp can be a challenging decision to make, especially during uncertain times like these.
Please know, should you choose Camp Geddie, and later decide you need to keep your child at home this summer, we’ve got your back. Camp Geddie will offers a no-hassle 100% full refund of summer camp fees.
We are looking forward to a successful, exciting, and fun-filled summer. We can’t wait to see you and your child at Camp Geddie!
