Health & Safety

  • One of Camp Neshama's top priorities (along with making sure camp is a blast!) is to help keep its participants and staff members safe. In order to do so, we'll be adhering to all applicable state and local health guidelines, in addition to closely monitoring the CDC's COVID guidelines.
  • As the situation continues to evolve, we will do our best to modify plans accordingly; any policies in place are subject to change based on the modifications by the county health department and State of CA. 
  • In order to reduce the risk, we also require that all participants be fully vaccinated for COVID-19.
  • The CDC defines fully vaccinated as: "2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine."
