It will be required that all Feral attendees be fully vaccinated as defined by the province of Ontario on or before the first day of camp. Campers will be required to show proof of vaccination.
For those of you that are taking the bus to camp, your vaccination records must be reviewed prior to boarding the bus. Those that fail to meet vaccination requirements or fail to provide documentation will not be allowed to board the bus.
For those that are taking their own transportation to camp, vaccination records will be reviewed as part of registration. Those that fail to meet vaccination requirements or fail to provide documentation will not be allowed to attend camp.
COVID Cancellation Considerations
One of the big concerns in 2020 was what might happen with refunds if Feral was canceled. Thankfully we were able to refund everyone’s registration 100%, but you may be wondering what might happen this year.
The nature of our agreements with our vendors has changed substantially in the last 2 years. As such Camp Feral finds itself in a position where penalties can occur should we decide to cancel without government mandate or support from our vendors.
Thanks to the pledges of a handful of people we can guarantee that if Camp Feral is canceled without government mandate and without support of our vendors, registrations will be refunded at their expense. However, we’re asking the community for a little bit of support in exchange for this guarantee as we don’t think it’s completely fair to ask a small number of people to carry this large risk.
On our registration form you will find a place where you can designate what percentage of your registration you would like to have refunded in the event of cancellation. We understand that everyone’s financial situation is different. If you need 100% back, you’ll get it. But if you can help support feral with a partial or even no refund, you’re helping ensure that there will be Camp Feral in 2023. Keep in mind that you will get at least what percentage you designate. A larger refund will be provided if at all possible.
Frankly, looking at how the pandemic impacted the late fall of 2020 and 2021, we’re quite optimistic and confident that Feral will occur in 2022. This is just an added step we’re taking because we all know that we’re still living in uncertain times.
Please note that the above only applies in the event that camp is canceled. If you cancel your registration you will be subject to the normal refund policy.
