Camp Wyandot Families and Friends,

We are looking forward to a full summer of camp once the Coronavirus pandemic has resolved. We will remain in close communication with parents and staff and will continue to be in communication during the coming weeks as circumstances change.

We’re continuing to proceed with staff hiring, CIT applications and camper registration. As you know, Camp Wyandot is a nonprofit organization, employing good people and operating largely on revenues from donations and camp registrations. We are hopeful, listening to the facts and watching things closely.

In an effort to abide with the Governor’s imposed “stay at home” order effective at midnight March 23rd through April 6th, Camp Wyandot will be closed except for those that have a specific purpose and prior permission from Connie Coutellier or Chuck Woodrum to be there. While we know that camp, nature and the outdoors are a refuge at times like these but we must protect those that provide security and have responsibilities or permission to be at camp. This is to help limit the spread of the coronavirus. We will notify you when the situation changes so for this period please “stay at home”, be safe and do not come to camp to hike or visit without obtaining PRIOR permission from Chuck or Connie.

We want to share the measures we are taking and the information we will use moving forward. As an organization of ACA-accredited camps, we continue to monitor the advice of the World Health Organization (WHO), the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the local public health departments that have jurisdiction over our camps, the American Camp Association (ACA), the Association of Camp Nursing (ACN), and our camp nurse. All decisions—either to carry out current plans or make changes—are made in consultation with medical professionals and our colleagues at accredited summer camps across the country. Our staff and campers’ health is our foremost priority.

We are preparing for summer, when our facilities will be inspected by Hocking County Health Department prior to camp opening.

In following the direction and recommendation of our governor and health officials, our staff will working from home or only be in the office occasionally for the next few weeks. We prefer you communicate by phone or email and we will get back to you promptly. We will be conducting interviews and holding meetings by phone or video conference.  We hope to see you at camp this summer.

Wyandot Love,

Your Camp Wyandot leadership
