Volunteer applications for 2023 are OPEN!


Our medical team works hard every year to make camp as safe as possible for all our campers and our volunteers. They will continue to monitor current public health issues and we will update our safety protocols as is appropriate. At this time, Okizu is requiring all individuals attending an in-person session of camp be vaccinated against COVID-19. All attendees must be up-to-date on their COVID-19 vaccines per CDC guidelines for their age group. If you would like more information, please call the Okizu office or email spencer@okizu.org. You can also visit the CDC website at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/recommendations/specific-groups.html

Testing for COVID-19 will be expected to attend in-person program. At this time, our Medical Advisory Committee has stated it is too far in advance to determine the testing algorithm based on current infection rate. We will provide more information on testing requirements as we get closer to the in-person camp sessions.
