SUMMER 2022 health & safety

Now more than ever, we are finding ourselves needing the magic of the Trybal community and a place to unwind, unplug, and recharge. While the world has changed in many ways these past two years, our commitment to creating safe, fun, and meaningful experiences has only strengthened.


Trybal has a proven health and safety record. We believe in our ability to run programs in a manner that meets Trybal’s, our camps’, as well as CDC safety standards. We work closely with a team of extraordinary medical advisors, agencies, and camp professionals to prepare for our summer 2022 camp experiences. The information below is based on the latest guidelines available, so as conditions evolve, we will offer updates to ensure a safe experience that doesn’t compromise Trybal’s mission. All COVID-19 FAQs are subject to change.

  • Do I need to be vaccinated in order to attend camp?
    Yes, in an effort to create a “bubble”-like environment at camp, all participants and staff will be required to be fully vaccinated to attend. You must have received two doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccines, or the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, plus a booster shot at least 14 days prior to the first day of the camp program.
  • How do I provide proof of my vaccination?
    After you register, you’ll receive a link to upload a copy of your COVID-19 vaccination card. If you aren’t yet fully vaccinated, that’s okay, you’ll be able to submit a photo of your card up until 14 days before the first day of camp.
  • Will I need to take a COVID test prior to coming to camp?
    As an extra precaution, at this time, we are asking each participant and staff member to provide a negative PCR test taken three days before arrival to camp.
  • Will masks be required?
    We create as many filters as possible to mitigate risk, with the most vital requirement being vaccination. Our camps take place on exquisite properties that will transport you into the heart of nature. By design, our programs largely take place outdoors. Based on regulations at this time, we will not be requiring you to wear a mask at camp and will update our policy by location as programs near.
  • Is there a limit on how many people can attend each experience?
    We are currently offering 150 spots per overnight camp. If tickets sell out, a waitlist will appear on Eventbrite and additional spots will be release on a first-come first-serve based.
  • How many people will be in each cabin?
    Cabin sizes vary, but in general cabins will be capped at 8-12 people, which is 50% below their capacity. Each person gets their own bunk bed, both top and bottom. If you prefer to have a private room in the retreat center, a limited number of single and double-occupancy rooms are available at each overnight camp. As always, you will be able to request a same gender cabin, co-ed cabin, and if you know others coming to camp, you can request bunkmates. A group of 6 or more may request a private cabin. At day camps, you will be placed in similarly-sized groups of peers who will serve as your bunkmates for the day! Despite there not being a physical cabin or overnight component, you will occasionally meet up with this “family” group throughout the experience (and hopefully beyond!).
  • How are meals being served?
    All meals are served family-style in spacious, well-ventilated dining halls or hosted outdoors. All camp servers and chefs will also be vaccinated and wearing PPE throughout. Whole fruit and individually wrapped snacks will be available throughout the day. We will provide you with a Nalgene, which we encourage you to carry around with you and refill from water stations.
  • What is Trybal’s cancellation/refund policy?
    All tickets are 100% refundable up until 30 days before the camp's start day. That means you can register with confidence and save your spot risk-free. We will continue to share information with you leading up to the experience and welcome your questions at any time.
  • Who should I contact if I have questions?
    You can reach out to our Operations Director, Ben Michaels, at any time. After you register, you'll receive a series of pre-camp emails leading up to camp with the packing list, color war team assignments, dance party themes, logistical notes, health & safety information, and more.
