Feral! 2022 Covid Policy

COVID is a delicate and complicated topic and we’ve been working on this policy for quite some time now. We’ve had a lot of help from Arowhon, who has in turn incorporated policies set by the Ontario Camps Association. We’ve also received a lot of input from our campers, all of which has been considered during the formation of our policy. With all of this information taken into consideration we are now ready to share our 2022 Camp Feral COVID policy. You can find it here…

When reviewing this policy please remember that Camp Feral faces challenges that are very unique to the fandom at large. We are not in the middle of a major metropolitan area, we provide transportation to and from camp, nearly every space at camp is a communal space to some extent, etc. We’ve done our very best to find the balance between ensuring that you have the best time possible and doing what we can with the resources that we have to create the safest environment possible.

Please take a moment to review the policy as you will be expected to adhere to it as this will be considered an extension to our Code of Conduct for 2022. Given the fluidity of the COVID situation this policy may change, but based on current trends we believe that this policy will stay largely intact between now and camp.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us at info@campferal.org.

May 2022 News and Updates

Goooooood morning Feral Campers! 

Registration is behind us, camp has sold out, and we can start looking forward to bright sunny days up at camp! As we get closer to heading up to Algonquin you can expect to see a few newsletters with pertinent updates, this being one of them! Please take a moment to read the sections below as this is some pretty good-to-know stuff. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to us at info@campferal.org

Deposit Cutoff Date

Our registration deposit cut off date is June 12th. If you opted to register using a deposit please note that your method of payment will be automatically billed the remaining balance of your registration on June 12th. Also note that this is when our refund policy changes. Any registration cancellations that occur on or after this date will be fully refunded less $80 CAD.

COVID-19 Policy

The COVID-19 pandemic is still shaking things up globally and while we feel confident in our ability to bring you a safe camp experience, we recognize that we face a lot of challenges given that we’re fairly isolated out in Algonquin, there’s a lot of shared spaces, and we provide the option of transportation to and from camp via the Feral Bus. This has raised a lot of interesting questions as to how certain situations may be handled, such as if a positive COVID case is confirmed while on site.

As agreed to during registration you already know that we require you to be fully vaccinated before attending camp, but we know that there will be more policies needed depending on the state of the pandemic when we get to camp. We have regular communication with Arowhon and are assessing the situation as it develops in order to determine what policies will be most appropriate. You will get updates regarding any new policy via future newsletters. We will also update our COVID-19 policy page on campferal.org.

Please remember that we want to do everything we can to let everyone have as much fun as possible, but safety must always be our first priority.

We would also like to take a moment to remind you that your vaccination status needs to be verified when you arrive at camp or the bus. Please ensure that you have a printed, non-digital, copy of your vaccination records handy as there is limited cell service in Algonquin Provincial Park. You may not be able to download digital copies and if you are unable to provide your vaccination records you will not be permitted on site.

Limited Spots on the Bus

There’s been heavy demand when it comes to bus transportation this year and are getting very close to full capacity. If you were planning on signing up for the bus at a later date please let us know now and we will do our best to accommodate you. If you would like to add bus service to your registration, please reach out to us at registration@campferal.org.

Volunteering

Several of you have reached out asking how you can give back to Camp Feral with your time while at camp this year. If you have an interest in volunteering at camp please reach out to us at info@campeferal.org. There is no minimum required amount of time when it comes to volunteering at camp and any amount of time you can offer is greatly appreciated.

Cabin Selection

We’re collecting your cabin preferences this year using this form! You can use this form to let us know what your needs are and who you would like to have in your cabin. Please note that if you are unsure as to who you would like to have in your cabin it would be great if you could still fill out the form so we know what your preferences are.


Thank you so much for taking the time to review all this info and remember that you can always reach out to us at info@campferal.org if you have any questions!
