We are committed to the health and wellbeing of our program participants, our staff and the communities in which our programs take place. We are closely following the recommended safety guidelines of a number of respected health partners including the CDC, the American Camping Association and all government guidelines in France.
Travelling to France
France is currently open to all travelers from all counties with no restrictions, quarantine or proof of vaccination required.
Participant Vaccine Requirement
For the safety of our community, we require that our participants be vaccinated with a full course (original shot(s) and 1 booster ) of an EU approved Covid-19 vaccine which includes Pfizer, Astra-Zeneca, Moderna and Johnson&Johnson and you will be asked for proof of vaccination with your Berridge Medical Forms. We strongly encourage our participants to have a second booster within the last 6-9 months of travelling to France. This is not a requirement but a recommendation.
At this time, we will also require proof of a negative Covid-19 test before you fly and will administer a home Antigen test for all participants 5-7 days after arrival. You should also come to the program with a supply of masks and be prepared to wear them at any time should the program Director ask you to do so.
Please be aware that France is known to take quick action around worrying variants and may change these rules at any time to include mandatory pre-departure testing, proof of vaccination and/or proof of booster within the last 9 months to enter the country should a variant arise. We will keep you informed of any changes to any travel restrictions should arise with regards to Covid-19.
Covid-19 Protocols on the program
We will set our final Covid-19 protocols for programs approximately 2-3 weeks before the program start date. This enables us to respond to the current health situation and follow the most up-to-date CDC or local health authority recommendations. A copy will be emailed to all participants and parents. This will include protocols for isolation and mask wearing in the event a participant tests positive on the program. Should you have any questions about Covid-19 protocols, please feel free to reach out.
