What are you Doing about covid 19?

At Alert Level 1 there are no longer restrictions on events or gathering sizes. This means large scale events are allowed to take place so Easter Camp will go ahead if we are at alert level 1.  To stick with guidelines we need your help!

  • Practice good hygiene by washing and sanitising hands regularly. To help with this there will be sanitiser around camp in key spaces. We also ask each youth group to provide a hand sanitiser for their own youth group times. 
  • Sneeze or cough into your elbow.
  • Do not attend Easter Camp if you are feeling unwell; please stay at home
  • If you begin to experience Covid-19 symptoms, let your key leader know and stay in your cabin until they have contacted the first aid team who are available 24/7 to assess campers and liaise with public health should anyone develop COVID symptoms.
  • Covid-19 is contained at Alert Level 1, but it’s still worthwhile to keep a safe distance from people you don’t know while out and about. We recommend campers travel with a mask, in case alert levels change while at Easter Camp, so campers have a mask for the return home.
  • Forest Lakes has good cleaning routines.
