Holiday camps are OK this summer

It is important that children are able to continue with their usual activities as much as possible. Therefore, the Public Health Agency of Sweden ("Folkhälsomyndigheten") is permitting holiday camps and camp activities this summer, as long as they are held in smaller groups and close to home.

Those reponsible for an activity must ensure that they reduce the risk of spreading the Corona disease, Covid-19.  The Public Health Agency of Sweden has developed a risk assessment tool to help identify which precautions are required.

For example, exercise and activities should be performed outdoors. It is also a good idea to keep a distance between sleeping areas and dining areas.

It is important that children stay home if they become sick, even if they only have mild symptoms. If someone becomes sick during the camp, there must be opportunities available for getting them home.
