Coronavirus information

Update 30th April 2020

Dear Parents,

As we are all aware, these are certainly precarious times with a pandemic at the forefront of everyone’s lives. With governmental policies changing daily as well as that of various local authorities, the team at Village Camps is working hard to stay on top of all new information as well as make the best decisions possible regarding all things camp-related.

The safety of all of our campers is of course the number one priority, and therefore this will lead all decisions moving forward including operational practices as well as a final decision on being able to run this summer. As of today, we do still plan on running the majority of our camps and have been planning to this end, however we will closely monitor upcoming governmental measures over the next month including travel restrictions, social distancing measures, etc, to make the most informed decision for summer 2020.

We do currently have standard operating procedures in place that we have used for past pandemics, that said, we must be clear that Covid-19 differs in many ways and we therefore lean on the guidance of medical professionals as well as the authorities to assess the safety of running an international programme.

We will be sending out further news bulletins to our clients as soon as new information arises in order to assist them during these uncertain times, so please be on the lookout for these.

In the meantime, should you have any specific questions, please feel free to contact us at camps@villagecamps.com and we will get back to you as soon as possible. Kindly note that it may take a couple of days as we are not working at full capacity due to government mandated work-from-home orders.

Many thanks for your trust and patience.

The Village Camps Team
