We firmly believe that vaccines are effective in preventing diseases and that unvaccinated campers pose a risk to our camp population. We require the same vaccinations required by the California Department of Education.

Please CLICK HERE to view the most recent vaccination requirements.

If your child does not receive one or more of the immunizations required by the California Department of Education, you are required to:
1. Complete an immunization waiver form (available when completing your health form).
2. Submit copies of medical exemptions (if your camper does not receive vaccinations for documented medical reasons).
3. Submit a note from your doctor, written and dated 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 a 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.

*We do not believe that the COVID-19 vaccine will be fully approved for all camper-aged children prior to the start of camp. Therefore, although we will be requesting your camper’s COVID-19 vaccination status on their Health & Information Form, we won’t be requiring it for summer 2022.
