Cancelling Camp or Ending Camp Early


Camp Participants

While The Painted Turtle plans for all Camp sessions to run on schedule and for the entirety of the program, for the safety of all participants, there are a few circumstances in which we must cancel camp or end camp early.

Cancelling Camp

The Painted Turtle will cancel a camp session in advance for the following reasons:

  • A COVID-19 Outbreak on-site or among staff
  • Unable to fulfill essential staff roles to safely implement the program
  • High community spread of COVID-19 and/or direction for the State of California or LA County Public Health Department to cease operations.
  • Inclement weather forecast, including temperatures of 100 degrees Fahrenheit or higher

Ending Camp Early

If a camp session is already in progress, The Painted Turtle will end a camp session early for the following reasons:

  • A suspected case of COVID-19 on Camp*

*Please note, all participants are required to provide their own transportation to and from camp, and will be asked to leave Camp immediately if there is a suspected case onsite.
