It's required to have a negative covid test from a lab issued no more than 48 hours before entering the premises. It's not allowed a negative home test kit with QR Code.


The negative PCR certificate held must have a QR code linked to their original test report and must have the date and time of sample collection and the test result mentioned accurately. Participants holding a negative PCR certificate without a QR code shall be denied entry.


Participants who have had a positive viral test in the 3 months before starting camp and have met the criteria to end isolation should have a letter from their healthcare provider documenting the positive test date and stating the individual is cleared to end isolation.

All participants must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and provide proof of vaccination status prior to entering the premises. If the participant is not vaccinated, is allowed to be part of the camp using masks at all times.
