Coronavirus Camp Life FAQ

What is the cancellation policy if Family Legacy is forced to cancel Camp Life due to Covid-19?

If Family Legacy is forced to cancel Camp Life 2021 due to a national disaster or pandemic (i.e. coronavirus), I will be eligible for a refund of funds I personally donated less $500 per participant for incurred expenses by Family Legacy.*

If Family Legacy is forced to cancel Camp Life 2021, I will be notified by March 19th, prior to the final financial deadline. 

If Family Legacy is forced to cancel Camp Life 2021 and I am a 2020 participant that credited my funds to 2021, I will be eligible for a refund of funds I personally donated less $1,430, per the 2020 coronavirus cancellation policy.

*In order to receive the refund less $500, you must have personally donated to your trip and be a new paying 2021 participant (i.e. not 2020 credit). If you fundraised for your trip, you will not be eligible to receive or request the refund on their behalf of the donor. 

 

When will we be notified if Camp Life were to get canceled? 

If Family Legacy is forced to cancel Camp Life, you will be notified no later than March 19, prior to the final financial deadline on March 22nd. 

 

Will I be required to have a negative Covid-19 test prior to traveling for Camp Life?

This will depend on the requirements of Zambia, Dubai or any other transit city you might be traveling through at the time of your trip.

As of April 19, 2021, all passengers traveling to Zambia must present a negative COVID‑19 PCR (non-rapid) test result. The test must be taken within 72 hours of arrival.

 

If a vaccine is released prior to my Camp Life trip, will I be required to get it?

You will not be required to get a vaccination, as this would be a personal choice between you and your doctor.

 

What safety precautions will I be asked to follow while at Camp Life?

We will follow the guidelines of the CDC and the Zambian government.  It is likely that all indoor activities will require a mask.  We will make necessary modifications to the scheduled programming to practice social distancing in accordance with the Zambian government protocols. We will also set up sufficient hand washing stations for both kids and participants. 

 

Will I have to quarantine upon return to the U.S.?

As of January 26, 2021, the U.S. requires a negative COVID‑19 PCR (non-rapid) test result as well as a 10-day quarantine upon arrival. However, this will depend on the requirements and protocols in place at the time of your trip.

 

What would happen if I were to contract Covid-19 while in Zambia?

Family Legacy’s Chief Medical Director, Dr. Brad Guffey, has four board certifications and specializes in Infectious Diseases. He will be available to assess the medical needs of participants if they should arise. In addition to Dr. Guffey, other qualified medical professionals and facilities are available in Lusaka. In the event that a participant needs to be quarantined, Family Legacy will make appropriate accommodations. 

 

Do we have Medical Evacuation insurance as part of our airline booking?

Yes. Family Legacy provides each participant with insurance while traveling through Insurance Services of America. The insurance is covered in the Camp Life cost and would cover medical evacuation if it were needed.
