Upon arrival at GHS, a parent/guardian must present proof of their child’s full COVID-19 vaccination status. An individual is defined as fully immunized ≥14 days after receiving their second dose of a two-dose COVID-19 vaccine series or their first dose of a one-dose COVID-19 vaccine series that is approved by Health Canada. The only acceptable proof of vaccination is the receipt provided by the Ministry of Health/Public Health, or equivalent out-of-province health body to the person who was vaccinated.

GHS reserves the right to turn away participants that are not fully vaccinated and/or unable to show valid vaccination certificates (refunds will not be applicable).

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, the Guelph Humane Society is staying on top of recommendations made by public health and all levels of government. As the situation changes, GHS will continue to assess and re-assess our plans. Registered participants will be notified of any changes to our current program policies. Furthermore, if the situation requires GHS to cancel our camp program, all registrations cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic will be refunded in full.
