Operations plan for Summer 2023 – updated 9/20/2022
(subject to change as conditions warrant)
Covid Safe. That’s our goal for 2023. We highly encourage all campers and participants to stay up to date on their vaccinations for COVID-19, as defined by the CDC . Being ‘up to date’ on Covid 19 vaccinations will be a requirement to work at Medomak, without exception. Should conditions change, we will continue to take into account the most current guidance from the CDC, the State of Maine, the American Camp Association, and industry best practices, putting plans in place to allow for fun and safe programming.
The safety of our customers, staff, and community is paramount and is the responsibility of all of us who will make up the Medomak community.
GENERAL COVID RELATED POLICIES/PROCEDURES
We strongly encourage our campers to be up to date on all their vaccinations, including against COVID-19; however, it is not a requirement to attend camp. We will continue to require all staff to be ‘up to date’ on their Covid 19 vaccinations.
Medomak reserves the right to require testing for COVID-19 of campers, participants, and staff, including the use of testing as a screening tool upon arrival, and/or for persons presenting symptoms consistent with COVID-19 infection. Should a positive test be confirmed, the participant will need to leave Medomak or isolate in their cabin. We are not equipped to provide medical treatment due to Covid.
Medomak will follow current CDC recommendations on mask-wearing, as well as any mandates that may come from local and state authorities.
Campers, participants, and staff who have been exposed to COVID-19 (regardless of vaccination status) will need to wear well-fitting masks when around others, as well as submit to serial testing for COVID-19. If they become symptomatic or test positive, they will need to isolate in their cabin, or leave camp.
Confirmed COVID Infection
Medomak is not equipped to offer medical treatment for COVID-19 disease. So, if any participant tests positive, they will have to leave Medomak or isolate themselves in their cabin for the health and safety of the others on site.
FOOD AND LODGING
Housekeeping and Cleaning
Cabins will be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized prior to your arrival. We will be sure to be out of all cabins 18-24 hours prior to arrival of new guests.
Will you service cabins during our stay?
Dining will occur indoors in a well-ventilated dining hall. Outdoor dining will be available for those more comfortable eating outdoors.
Programs and activities will be conducted to the extent that they can be done safely. Wherever possible, activities will be held outdoors or if indoors in open, well-ventilated spaces.
Deposit and Payments
A non-refundable 10% deposit will be required to register your family and reserve a cabin. 50% of the balance will be due February 1st, with the remaining balance due May 1st. Registration after February 1st will require 50% of the balance to register. Registration after May 1st will require 100% of the balance to register.
Cancellations within 14 days of your arrival will result in a full credit applied toward a future stay at Medomak. In the event Medomak must cancel a program, a full refund will be given.
Sorry, but Medomak cannot be responsible for nonrefundable airline tickets or other travel or indirect expenses associated with cancellations.
A cash discount of 2.6% will be applied to payments made via check, or money order.
The policies and procedures for Medomak this summer make foremost the safety of our campers, participants, and staff. It’s in everyone’s best interest to know what to expect in preparation for coming to Medomak. As an assurance, we will require as part of the registration process that each of our attendees along with any individuals who accompany the attendee to sign a waiver agreeing to our procedures.
