COVID-19 Information
For the health and safety of all who attend Camp Wheez, we ask that all campers get the COVID-19 vaccine. The vaccine for children is safe and the best way to help protect children against COVID-19.

If your child is vaccinated but did not receive the vaccine at Sansum Clinic, please include a photo of their vaccine card with their application. If your child needs to get one or both shots, contact their doctor or pharmacy right away. You must wait 3 to 8 weeks between shots, so it is important to start now to be ready for Camp.

For more information, please visit our COVID-19 vaccine information page.
