We firmly believe that vaccines are effective in preventing diseases and that unvaccinated campers pose a risk to our camp population. If your child does not receive one or more of the immunizations required by the California Department of Education, you are required to complete an immunization waiver form (available when completing your health form). You must also submit a note from your doctor, no earlier than 30 days prior to your child arriving at camp, indicating your child has a clean bill of health. Should your child be exposed to or be diagnosed with measles or other communicable disease typically prevented through vaccination, they will most likely be quarantined (as recommended by the CDC) and may be excluded from camp for up to 25 days. In this event, Camp Kinneret will not be liable for providing makeup opportunities or credit for missed camp days. Please contact our office with any questions.
Please note: the California Department of Education web page about school health and vaccination requirements has been down for review and updates since December, 2020. Please CLICK HERE to view the most recent vaccination requirements (scroll down to “School Entry Requirements”).
*We do not believe that the COVID-19 vaccine will be widely available for camper aged children. Therefore, we won’t be requiring it for summer 2021.
