At Camp Fire camps, the safety and well-being of our campers and staff are our top priorities. To ensure the health and safety of everyone attending our summer camp, we have a comprehensive vaccination policy. This policy is designed to protect against vaccine-preventable diseases and create a secure environment for all participants.
All campers and staff members attending camp must provide proof of age-appropriate vaccination for the following vaccines, as mandated by local public-school requirements:
Religious Exemptions: We recognize that some individuals may have sincere religious beliefs that prohibit vaccination. To request a religious exemption, campers’ parents or legal guardians must submit a written waiver request. This statement must be signed by a representative of their faith community or religious leader.
Medical Exemptions: Individuals who have medical contraindications to vaccines, as determined by a licensed medical professional, may request a medical exemption. Medical exemption requests must include a signed statement from a qualified medical practitioner explaining the medical reasons for exemption.
Other Exemptions: Parents or legal guardians may also submit a written waiver request and liability waiver for other exemptions.
Proof of Vaccination: Parents or legal guardians of campers must provide official documentation confirming that the required vaccinations are up to date. This documentation should include the date of vaccination, vaccine type, and the administering medical facility’s information.
Compliance and Consequences:
Failure to provide proof of vaccination or an approved exemption will result in the camper or staff member being unable to participate in camp until the vaccination or exemption documentation is provided.
Individuals with exemptions may be required to follow additional safety measures, as recommended by a healthcare provider, to protect their health during camp activities.
Camp Fire Green Country reserves the right to review and adjust this vaccination policy in accordance with changes in local health guidelines, public health recommendations, or other relevant factors.
All vaccination and exemption records will be kept confidential and stored securely, in compliance with applicable privacy laws.
