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 the countries where our programs operate.
Gap Year and Summer Programs in France will operate in 2022
France is open for vaccinated travelers from the US, Canada and the UK with no travel restrictions or quarantine requirements. We are therefore requiring vaccination to attend our programs in France. Participants must be vaccinated at least 6 weeks before attendance with an EU approved vaccine which includes Pfizer, Astra-Zeneca, Moderna and Johnson&Johnson and you will be asked for proof of vaccination with your Berridge Medical Forms. Please guard and photograph your vaccination card carefully, as it will be required to enter the country. There is no Covid test required for vaccinated travelers at this time however, we are monitoring this situation on a daily basis and will post here if anything should change. At this time, we are optimistic that all of our France programs will go ahead as planned. Please note that disposable, medical masks are required in all indoor facilities in France and a Health Pass required to enter any museums or attractions. We will instruct you on how to apply for the "Pass Sanitaire" before you travel.
