Fall Weekend

Cancelled (as of August 12th)

Fall Dance and Music Weekend — October 1-3, 2021

It’s not actually happening, after all.

Sadly, the Fall Weekend committee has decided that circumstances force us to cancel Fall Weekend. As the coronavirus Delta variant spreads in north Idaho and eastern Washington, hospital ICU beds are filling up and elective procedures are postponed. Vaccination rates in north Idaho are some of the lowest in the nation (around 30% in the northern counties). Recent evidence shows that the Delta variant can spread among and sicken even some vaccinated people (although severe illness, hospitalization, and death among vaccinated people is rare). In view of the facts in the region and the current total lack of herd immunity, Camp N-Sid-Sen has had to re-institute rules that limit the number of campers and rule out indoor contra dancing, even with masks. Given these necessary restrictions, and the likely trajectory of spread over the next two months suggested by the data, we conclude that we cannot offer a safe Fall Weekend. So, with heavy hearts and profound disappointment, we have to cancel what we had for so long planned and hoped to enjoy. Mark your calendars for Fall Weekend October 7-9, 2022.

The below information is just for reference. The 2021 Fall Weekend has been cancelled.

Proof of vaccination against Covid-19 (with the second dose no later than September 17) is required, no exceptions—bring your vaccination card or a clear photo of both sides of your card to camp.

Register and submit payment by regular mail or electronically via Paypal when accessed from the Lady of the Lake website. Register early. In the event that Covid-19 (or its variants) returns and Camp N-Sid-Sen needs to restrict camper numbers, we will offer places in order of registration and received payment.

The cost is $225/person, with full payment due by September 15. If you become ill or are unsuccessful getting the vaccine, a full refund will be given. Registration opens July 15th and closes September 15.

Enrollment is on a first come, first served basis.
