COVID-19 Information for Visitors and Guests
In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, we encourage visitors to enjoy the trails while observing general best practices for social distancing, as well as the following additional precautions:
> Since Woldumar is first and foremost a licensed day camp, ALL VISITORS must have a mask and wear it anytime they cannot maintain 6 feet of distance from other hikers on the trails. We are continuing our camp services into the school year, so please continue wearing masks this fall.
> Public restrooms are available when staff is on site, generally 9am-4pm Monday through Friday. Members can access restrooms at any time using their PIN.
> Picnic tables are available at behind the Visitor Center and at the Sunrise Pavilion. For the health and safety of our campers, the picnic area attached to the barn is NOT available for public use at any time.
> Please pack out your own trash. There is one receptacle for pet waste.
> When you are on the trails, maintain 6 feet between yourself and other hikers. Maintain awareness of your surroundings and make way for hikers who are traveling faster than you. In some areas, you may need to step off the trail.
Our buildings are closed to the public. Staff will continue receiving your phone calls and emails, and will respond as quickly as we can.
Weddings & Rentals: If you have an existing reservation or would like to reserve the grounds or facilities, please contact Hospitality Manager Victoria Churchill-Barner (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Please complete a COVID-19 preparedness plan prior to your event.
Under current Michigan law:
> Outdoor social gatherings and events among persons not part of a single household may not exceed 100 people.
> Indoor social gatherings and events among persons not part of a single household may not exceed 10 people.
> Individuals must wear face coverings when in crowded outdoor spaces or enclosed public spaces.
> Businesses must refuse entry or service to individuals not wearing a face mask.
If you are a vendor, guest, or anyone other than the contracted Lessee, we ask you to please communicate through the Lessee. This will help us keep organized and streamline our work to meet everybody's needs.
As we have been reminded now countless times, this is an evolving situation and it is very difficult to predict when recommendations and restrictions might change. The leadership at Woldumar is committed to meeting or exceeding the advice of health officials to protect our community.
We look forward to hosting events, community programs, field study, and camps as soon as it is safe and practical to do so, and will communicate any additional scheduling changes as more information becomes available.
Woldumar is more than a park – it’s a cause and a community. We appreciate your patience, understanding and continued support, as we do everything we can to support our community in these challenging times.
