COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS FOR RENTING / VISITING SHEKINAH
In accordance with the latest Re-Open Saskatchewan guidelines extension, Shekinah has re-opened access to its grounds; however, our main buildings (Timber Lodge and Chalet) remain closed to the public.
Until further notice, Shekinah rentals of the Timber Lodge, Chalet, or Cabins will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis. We are currently hoping - if all Re-Open Saskatchewan guidelines are met - to re-open our rental facilities in August, 2021.
Please contact the office for availability, Covid policies, etc.
In the meantime, we welcome your visits to use our outdoor spaces (287 acres) for hiking, bird watching, or just running around to burn off energy.
Please note that there are restrictions in place.
For using our grounds, here are a few things to know:
- The government of Saskatchewan guidelines state that outdoor groups are limited to 10 people, with NO food or drink. The rules you need to follow at home are the same here.
- Our washroom facilities are closed to the public.
- There is a fire ban in place for the RM of Laird, so all fire pits are closed to use.
There are also some general things to keep in mind:
- There is not always someone on duty, so you enter at your own risk.
- The grounds are open during daylight hours only.
- Cell phone service has come to our valley, but it can be weak or non-existent in certain places.
- Should you decide to hike our trails, we ask that you give a small donation to Shekinah. $10/ person or $25 / family is a suggestion. You can donate online (see donations menu up at the top right of this page) or leave a donation in the boxes on Ravine Trail, on the sign in the Timber Lodge parking lot, or in the mailbox at the office. Or scan the QR code and pay online.
As always, we do not allow motorized vehicles (dirt bikes, ATVs, etc) on Shekinah grounds.
There are NO pets allowed at Shekinah.
There is no hunting on Shekinah grounds.
Just a reminder: Shekinah is private property and does not have amenities / staff like a provincial or federal park might. There may not be staff on site, so we ask you to be careful and respectful, while keeping your distance from others.
*Note that the second floor of the office building and the A-frame house are private property.
Please stay healthy and safe in these unusual times.
WE WILL REVISIT THESE GUIDELINES WHEN THE NEW SASKATCHEWAN PUBLIC HEALTH MEASURES ARE RELEASED.
