COVID-19 Policies & Logistics

IslandWood Staff Vaccination Policy

All IslandWood staff, volunteers, docents, interns, and graduate students are required to have the COVID-19 vaccination and booster, with the exception of those who have received a medical or religious exemption.

Policies for Children Attending Day Programs

Education programs will be held outdoors whenever possible, and masking will not be required in most situations. However, we do recommend it in select situations, such as when we have a large number of children sitting together in close proximity.


Masks are required indoors for all programming and in the Dining Hall, except when eating or drinking.

Policies for School Overnight Program Students, Teachers & Chaperones

With guidance from the Washington State Department of Health, the CDC, and the American Camp Association, we have developed detailed protocols for safely running the School Overnight Program.

We will continue to update these policies as the Washington State DOH updates its COVID protocols for outdoor schools.
