COVID-19 RESPONSE

Update as of March 13, 2020

In light of the outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19), we are writing today to let you know about the approach that Sherbrooke Lake Camp is taking to keep our campers safe and healthy at camp.

 

As of March 13th, Canadian and provincial public health authorities have issued recommendations regarding the risks associated with COVID-19.

 

In order to ensure a safe experience for everyone at Sherbrooke Lake Camp we are monitoring this issue carefully and will continue to do so. As we get closer to our camping season and the virus is detected in Nova Scotia we will be in touch with our local public health authorities, the United Church of Canada and others to ensure we are following best practices and guidance.

 

Our well-established health-specific protocols are in place to protect our campers and staff and as such we will update those protocols as the situation changes. At this time, we certainly anticipate that our programs will run as usual and as such we will implement even more hand washing protocols, even more cleaning of things like door knobs and doorways and every building will be equip with more hand sanitizer units.

 

At this time, there are no other changes necessary to any of our procedures as we prepare for the camp season ahead. Recognizing we are still 2 ½ months away from our first rental and 3 ½ months away from our first day of summer camp, should any of this change, we will communicate this with you as early as possible, so you can plan ahead.

 

You can find trustworthy information about COVID-19 at the www.sherbrookelakecamp.org/covid-19 which has our response and the up to date information from the Province of Nova Scotia.

 

As always if you have any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Be well and take of each other,

 

Mat Whynott, Executive Director

Sherbrooke Lake Camp
