The following procedures are in place at Camp Caillet, Nanaimo to help maintain a safe environment for our youth and Scouters. Please make note of the following and ensure all participants are made aware of any boundaries and/or procedures that are in place when using the camp.
Arrival and Departure
Users of the camp will have a set start and end time for arrival and departure. These times are staggered to enable safe drop-off and pickup of members. Please try to stick to your allotted time to reduce traffic flow and grouping of members in the parking lot.
While we remain under a phased reopening, we have separated areas of the camp to reduce traffic flow and mixing of youth from different groups. Please follow the appropriate signage to your meeting/camping area.
Camp Caillet has been split into three main areas. The main field has two meeting areas set aside as open space, both with a flag pole and fire pit for use by members. These areas are clearly marked and your group must stay within your designated area for the duration of your rental. In addition, the Memorial field has been set aside as an open space for meeting and is available when campers are not on site.
We are under Phase 2 restrictions as part of the Scouts Canada return to activities. As such, all indoor meeting spaces are prohibited. At Camp Caillet ,this includes: The Kitchen, Bunkhouse, Washroom Building, Covered Fire Pit, Picnic Shelter and Log Cabin. The porta-potties have been reinstalled on site as they are easier to clean between groups.
Camp Caillet has an emergency plan posted on its website at CampCaillet.ca and attached to reservation confirmations. In addition, during this stage of the COVID-19 Phase 2 opening, we have provided an emergency cache located next to the Log Cabin that contains Personal Protective Equipment and the AED device. In the event of an emergency, open the cache and remove the equipment needed, ensuring that the log page is completed. Please notify the Booking Secretary if anything is removed from this cache.
Cleaning, Disinfecting & Symptomatic Persons
Following the latest guidelines from Scouts Canada at https://www.scouts.ca/news-and-events/covid-19/welcome-back-resources.html, please ensure all groups have a COVID-19 Kit to help deal with symptomatic persons. All members are encouraged to make use of the sanitization stations next to each toilet facility for regular disinfecting of hands and should avoid touching surfaces whenever possible.
