2021 Shwayder Camp Family Guidelines for a Successful Summer

2022 COVID-19 Vaccination Requirement

The Shwayder team has been working hard to prepare for Summer 2022. We have been recruiting counselors, registering campers, and having ongoing conversations about the COVID-19 Pandemic.   

Throughout the COVID-19 Pandemic, the health and safety of our entire community has been our top priority. We had an amazing summer in 2021 thanks to the hard work of our Shwayder leadership team and staff. We are looking forward to an incredible Summer 2022 season. 

One of the Jewish values that has been guiding our community during the pandemic is Pikuach Nefesh, saving a life. We continually consult with our team of medical professionals regarding the best practices for Summer 2022.  

For Summer 2022, we are requiring all campers, staff, and guests on Shwayder property to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.  All staff will be fully vaccinated and up-to-date with the COVID-19 booster. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND that all eligible campers have received the COVID-19 booster but it is not required.

We will send additional information in the coming months regarding testing, mask-wearing, and more as we continue to monitor the pandemic. When camper forms are made available to complete, families will need to upload camper’s vaccination cards to CampMinder. 

Shwayder Camp will continue to be a place filled with magic, where kids can build relationships, cultivate self-esteem, develop Jewish identity, inspire an appreciation for the wonder and the beauty of the natural environment and promote the unique capabilities of each individual.
