Smoke/Air Quality Policy
Due to Covid, we are unable to use indoor space and with the increased threat of summer wildfire smoke in Western Washington, it is necessary to have a plan in place to ensure the safety of our campers and staff.
In the case of hazardous air quality, we will monitor conditions and will consult the Washington Department of Ecology website for updates on local air quality. If threat levels at the nearest monitoring sites to our camps are deemed unsafe for staff and campers by the Program Director we will cancel camp. Please see the condition levels from the WAQA Publication which we will use to guide our decision. If conditions are “moderate” or “unhealthy for sensitive groups” we will limit running games and strenuous activities at our camps. If conditions are “unhealthy for everyone” we may cancel camp for the day. We will reach out to all families via email by 8:00am to cancel camp for the day.
If your child has additional health concerns or sensitivities and must be withheld from camp at a lower level of risk, please let us know so we are aware they are taking the day off. We are not able to offer a refund in this case per our usual registration policies.
If two or more camp days in a week are cancelled by My World due to smoke, fire, or air-quality concerns, you may request a 50% refund per day for the total number of cancelled days. To request a refund, please email at email@example.com. These conditions pose a huge threat to outdoor education organizations, and we are grateful for your support and understanding.
