We will test all incoming campers and staff for COVID-19 upon arrival at Wildwood.
Vaccinated and unvaccinated people will be tested.
Testing will be done in partnership with Kansas Dept of Health and Environment and Miami County Emergency Services and Public Health.
Campers who arrive by bus will be tested upon arrival at their bus stop. Campers who arrive by car will be tested while parents are still present as a part of the check-in process.
We use a rapid antigen test that requires a simple nasal swab in both nostrils. The test is not painful or invasive. Campers can collect their own test samples and then pass them to staff for processing. If a positive case is identified, staff will immediately contact camper parent(s), Wildwood’s Executive Director, and the Miami County Health Dept.
This additional testing will strengthen our multi-layered prevention practices already in place.
The health and safety of both campers and staff is our number one priority.
To best ensure everyone’s safety, Wildwood is closely monitoring information and implementing recommendations from national, state, and local health authorities.
- Centers for Disease Control (CDC) COVID-19 Guidelines for Camps
- American Camp Association’s Field Guide
- Kansas COVID-19 Child Care Guidance
- Miami County, KS COVID-19 Alerts
In addition to the above steps, we are also implementing increased sanitation protocols and encouraging vaccination for all campers and staff to ensure the best protection possible.
