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 ask that all participants be fully vaccinated for COVID-19.
