Some of you are wondering about whether you should still come to camp during this unsettling time caused by Coronavirus pandemic, or if we will still run camps during this time.

At present, the virus has not been transmitted from person to person in NZ - all cases have been infected while overseas. Ministry of Health has indicated that the risk of catching the COVID-19 virus from someone with no symptoms is very low. Total reported cases international of individuals under 19 years is 24% of the total ie. extremely low. 

At Lakes Ranch were have decided to provide learning and adventrue opportunities for those who want to come. However, because of the constantly changing situation we will ensure we comply with all the Ministry of Health guidelines and recommendations as they are released.

As a result of this:

  • all camp will be limited to less than 100 people onsite
  • we have added four sanitation facilities around the camp
  • we have increased cleaning procedures between camps
  • we will provide an isolation for emergencies
  • our Pandemic Plan has been activated
  • you should not allow any person in your party to come if they have a temperature or any signs of illnesss
  • Both your health and ours is our highest priority

Both your health and ours is our highest priority.
