Camp Wingra will continue to make the safety and well-being of our campers and counselors our number one priority.

Please note that we will actively be adjusting procedures based on the most current information, guidelines, and best practices. We will be following all guidelines by the CDC, the city, as well as following Madison Boats sanitizing and social distancing protocols at the boat house.

This summer, because the of high vaccination rates among children over 5 and because the majority of our activities are outside we have made the decisions that masks will be optional at camp. What this means is that masks are not required, but any camper may choose to wear a mask if they would like to. We do ask that campers bring a mask with them every day for situations that may require us to wear masks.

Below is the most recent version of the Covid-19 Multilayered plan. If any updates are made, you will be sent the most recent plan the week prior to your camper's session.

2022 Camp Wingra Covid-19 Multi-layered Plan

  • All camp counselors, and camp support staff, are vaccinated.

  • Masks will not be required while outdoors, however a camper is always able to wear a mask if they would prefer. 

  • Campers will be asked to wash their hands, or apply hand sanitizer, multiple times a day. 

  • All campers will be assigned to a cohort of 4-6 campers and one counselor. These cohorts will be created based on the information that parents shared at registration concerning pods, groupings and other accommodations.  

  • Lunch will be eaten together in their cohorts

  • When campers are indoors for bad weather, we will make sure that everyone is wearing a mask, that all windows and doors are open and that fans are running to add extra ventilation, per CDC guidance. 

  • When on the water, campers will be naturally socially distanced by being in separate boats. Masks must not be worn on the water, as it is a safety hazard.

  • We ask that parents screen their child every morning before coming to camp and report any Covid-19 symptoms to Camp Wingra, and keep their child home when symptomatic.

  • We ask that parents report any possible contact with someone with Covid-19, and keep their camper home for the appropriate quarantined approved time if symptomatic.  Unfortunately, we will not be able to provide any refund for absences due to illness.

  • Campers will wear masks if they are transported in camp vans. We plan to use our vans as little as possible, mainly for our fishing camps or for bad weather days.

  • Campers will be assigned a life jacket on the first day of camp which they will use for the rest of the week.

Camp Wingra holds the right to deny campers, without refund, that are unable to meet and follow our COVID-19 Plan
