2021 Summer Camps – Camp Yamhill is now accepting registrations for summer camps!
Camp Yamhill is very happy to announce that the State of Oregon will be allowing us to have overnight camps this summer. Camp Yamhill is committed to following all state guidance in order to provide camps that will be as safe as possible. The most recent announcement from the Governor’s office was:
“Governor Kate Brown today (6/25/21) signed a recovery-focused executive order lifting all remaining COVID-19 health and safety restrictions issued under Oregon’s emergency statutes. Restrictions will be lifted when Oregon achieves a 70% first dose adult vaccination rate or on Wednesday, June 30, whichever occurs sooner. With restrictions lifted, the state will shift to a focus on helping Oregonians and communities recover from the impacts and the economic toll of the pandemic.”
In addition, the state issued new guidance for camps to take effect on 6/28/21. This new guidance makes a number of changes regarding cohorts, masking and distancing. The guidance can be found at: OHA 2351P_R Youth Programs Recommendations (state.or.us).
It is important to stress that, in order to offer camps during the pandemic, parents and campers and staff will all be required to follow all state rules. As parents prepare to bring their kids to camp this summer, it is very important that anyone who currently has or recently had an illness with COVID-19 symptoms not come to camp.
Also, Camp Yamhill will continue the policy that all campers will be required to register online.
