Protecting ourselves from COVID-19

9th March 2020

Our international summer camps will be running this summer

The health and well-being of our campers and staff is our highest priority. 

We would like to reassure parents that our existing policies and procedures are in line with the guidance provided by the World Health Organisation (WHO). We are regularly monitoring the ever-evolving situation with COVID-19 and will amend our procedures if and when required.

If we are unable to operate our international camp sessions this summer then you will be able to postpone your camp to a later date or we will refund your monies.

What does this mean in practice?

Following advice from the WHO and the Federal Office for Public Health (FOPH) we will be implementing a range of preventative strategies and processes throughout the summer season including:

– asking camp participants screening questions about their travel history and illnesses in the run up to camp.

– educating on and practising good personal hygiene practices to control and limit the spread of infection.

We will continue to monitor official guidance for schools and other educational settings, and we promise we will always base our planning and strategy on what we believe to be in the best interest of our campers and their families.

Please do not hesitate to contact us at any time.
