Q: What precautions is The Wilds taking to guard against acquiring COVID-19?
A: We are attentively working with our multiple regional and local public health department agencies and are taking preventative measures (including heightened disinfecting and sanitary procedures) to promote a healthy environment on our campsites. We are also monitoring the National Institute of Health, the World Health Organization, and the CDC’s real-time updates on the status of COVID-19.
Q: Any other thoughts for us as we plan to attend camp?
