Wildfire + Air Quality Index (AQI) Credit Policy


Effective for Summer ’22 —

During  Summer ’21 large nearby wildfires impacted three days of camps, and threatened other days. While we’re hopeful that wildfires are less severe this summer, science indicates that wildfire and smoke may continue with prevailing drought conditions in the Western US. The below customer-first policy was effective in Summer ‘21 and will apply to future summers as well.

AQI Policy – If AQI levels are 151 or higher on campus we will cancel camps for that respective day. If the AQI is below 151, and in the Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups range, we will modify activities accordingly to protect campers, by reducing outdoor activities / strain and building in plenty of break between activities. As this range 100-150 is also problematic for individuals with respiratory issues, as well as our youngest campers. Outdoor adventures for our youngest campers may be rescheduled as well, to avoid exertion outside / on the trail. In the event AQI is above 150 we will cancel camp and issue future credits for this missed day of camp. If camps are cancelled tomorrow we will notify camp families by approximately 8AM. Note this cancellation typically does not impact Backpacking, Rafting or other overnight adventure trips.

Ultimately, the decision on whether or not to attend camps is up to each individual family, as you know what’s best for your child.
