Ensuring a safe and healthy summer

Camp Chickami 2022

In 2021 and 2020, Camp Chickami employed many mitigation strategies and procedures to prevent the potential spread of COVID-19. These mitigation factors included wearing face coverings while indoors or engaged in activities that involved sustained close contact, staggered drop off and pick-up times, operating a closed camp, and maintaining small camper group cohorts. In each of the past 2 summers we were able to safely operate camp and had zero COVID cases at camp in either summer.

We will work throughout the off-season to plan what operations at Chickami will look like in 2022. We will use guidance from and follow the regulations of state and local boards of health, all the while placing the health and safety of our campers and staff at the forefront. While we don’t yet know exactly what next summer at Chickami will look like, we anticipate that some of the policies above will change while others will remain in place in 2022 as we look to provide the safest and most fun experience for our campers.

If you have questions or would like additional information, please reach out to Director Ben Kaloupek at BenjaminK@wsymca.org or 617-795-1830.
