During the pandemic, we take extra care to maximize our intention that everyone is healthy and safe. Know that we will do our best to be in accordance with health recommendations with respect to COVID-19. We will ask all participants to continue social distancing (minimum 6 ft between individuals) at all times, particularly during meetings and meal times. Running water is available in camp and hand soap will be available in addition to sanitizing wipes and hand sanitizer. An outdoor shower is also available. When we are preparing meals in the smaller kitchen zone, we will wear gloves and cloth face coverings to minimize any possible transmissions. Because the program is entirely outdoors and because we will be practicing social distancing, masks and gloves are not necessary for questors although you are welcome to bring and use these items at your own discretion.
As your protectors for this program, we will do our best to limit or eliminate our exposures by avoiding large groups, maintaining our social distancing, and wearing a mask when in public places prior to the program. We hope you will do likewise. That is, it is incumbent upon each of us to bring ourselves to the program in good health. Moreover, as we get into the two weeks before the program starts, we will need to know if you have or had any COVID-19 symptoms (Fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, or diarrhea).
We share this to let you know we intend to protect you before and during your quest from any source of harm. More so, you also have a responsibility to yourselves and each other. This begins with intention. Search your Heart and connect with an intention to arrive healthy and complete the Quest safely.
Coronavirus merits our respect and care but not our fear. There is no being, force, or thought that is outside of the Creator. We are immortal beings having a human experience. Your physical mind may reject that as a fanciful idea yet your Heart is calling you to Quest! Let us intend health and wholeness before, during, and after the Quest.
