Wildfire + Air Quality Index (AQI) Credit Policy

Over the past few summers local and regional wildfires have impacted camp operations. Specifically, in Summer ‘21 three days of summer camp operations were canceled due to poor air quality, and in Summer ‘22 one day of camp operations were canceled. While we’re hopeful that wildfires are less severe this summer, science indicates that wildfires and poor AQI will continue in the Western US. 

1. Policy – In the event AQI is forecast to be 151 or above (for a moderate portion of the camp day) we will cancel camp and issue future credits less 25% of the paid registration fee for this missed day of camp. If camps are canceled we will notify camp families before 8:00AM of the impacted camp day. Note this cancellation typically does not impact overnight camps like: Backpacking, Mammoth Expeditions or Rafting Trips. 


2. AQI Camp Modifications – If the AQI is below 151, and in the Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups range (101-150), 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.

3. About Air Quality IndexNOAA explains that, ‘The Air Quality Index (AQI) is used for reporting daily air quality. It tells you how clean or polluted your air is, and what associated health effects might be a concern for you. The AQI focuses on health effects you may experience within a few hours or days after breathing polluted air. EPA calculates the AQI for five major air pollutants regulated by the Clean Air Act: ground-level ozone, particle pollution (also known as particulate matter), carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, and nitrogen dioxide. For each of these pollutants, EPA has established national air quality standards to protect public health. Ground-level ozone and airborne particles are the two pollutants that pose the greatest threat to human health in this country.’


Health Cancellation Policy: If your child exhibits Influenza or COVID like symptoms they are required to stay home / not attend camp. To ensure everyone’s safety and wellbeing, and to ensure camps continue to run in full, we ask that these instances and ailments are reported in an honest and timely manner. If symptoms don’t clear during the assigned camp week we will issue a prorated credit less 25% for camp. A doctor’s note and email notification to Camps Manager, Alex Peugnet at is required for processing.
