What COVID-19 Guidelines are we needing to follow?

At this time this we are working with Public Health to determine what the measures will be for summer 2022 – though all measures will likely be lifted by the summer time.  Currently it would that guests/family units must complete the Kwasind Active Screening Form before arriving on the property and affirm that they will follow the COVID-19 protocols:

  • Guests are instructed to stay six feet from guests in other household units.
  • Guests are instructed to wear a mask (which they will provide) when ever indoors or when interacting with staff or other guests.
  • Meals will either be “take-out” style to be enjoyed around camp or if Public Health allows, in the new Kwasind Centre at a designated table that is more than 6ft away from other households where food is served in a cafeteria style.
  • Read our latest COVID-19 Plan and adapt to the latest best practices from the public health authorities.

 

Will Food Services at Kwasind be able to manage my special diets?

As part of the registration process – you will be asked to submit a form letting Kwasind know if you have any dietary restrictions or allergies. Our food service team will be able to accommodate most restrictions including vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and lactose-free diets. Just let us know what you need!

Can we bring our pet to stay in our cabin?

At this point, we are needing to ask you to leave your pets at home or to have them in a local kennel. We aren’t set up or have approval to allow outside animals on our premises at this time.

Is my family allowed to leave site during our stay?

Yes!  Kwasind would be your home base and whenever you leave, we ask that you follow all COVID-19 guidelines (including physical distancing and masking when you are out and about off property).  There is lots to do at Kwasind but you may also want to explore Muskoka and the many great trails or sites that are open.  We just ask that you let us know when you are leaving and please be sure to do proper screening when you return and check in with our office staff.

 $500 BONUS OPTION: KWASIND ISLAND OVERNIGHT

Your household unit will have the option for $500 to have a one-night stay (any time between dinner till breakfast) on the Kwasind Island all by yourself to have a campfire, eat s’mores and stay in a tent under the stars, including a Pontoon ride around Skeleton Lake! 

NOTE: This is a great way to give generously to help support Kwasind – contact register@kwasind.com to add this to your booking
