Are Masks Required At Camp?


According to Washington department of health guidelines, all children age 5 years and older, staff, volunteers, and guests who are vaccinated or not must wear cloth face coverings or acceptable alternatives.


Current mask guidelines from the Washington State Department of Health allow campers and staff the option of whether to wear a mask while outside, regardless of vaccination status. The Y is consistently following state guidelines and will allow masks as an option while campers and staff are outdoors. Y staff will continue providing three feet of distance between individuals while outside. Masks are still required for all campers and staff while indoors, regardless of vaccination status.

Lunch and Snacks

Campers are asked to bring their own lunch and snacks.

Program Details

The Y is committed to maintaining a healthy environment for everyone. Our facilities are operating under all state guidelines. We continue to update our procedures as state guidelines change. YMCA Winter Break Camp is expected to operate in Phase 1, 2, and 3 of Washington State's Healthy Washington - Roadmap to Recovery plan. Group sizes may be adjusted, mask requirements may change, and activities may shift based on any changes to the guidelines as we move through new phases. We will communicate with parents through our weekly email communication. Please ensure the email you use to log in to your online YMCA account is active so you receive these important updates.

Parent Communication

Camp forms and information will be sent to registered campers. Information will be sent to the primary parent email on the camper’s YMCA account.
