Summer Camp

Dear Camp Families,

We hope this message finds you well and happy!

First, we want to thank everyone for their patience while we have been waiting for and working through the much needed guidance and recommendations from CDC, ACA, and our local health authorities for running summer youth programs this year. With camper safety always being our #1 priority, it was important for us to pause and make sure we could contribute to a healthy environment while still offering an incredible summer camp experience.

And we think we can do that! (With some modifications, of course.)

We know there are many questions around how camp will look different, and what we are doing to create a healthy environment for our campers and staff this summer. Please review this quick guide for some of the protocols and processes we will have in place to help reduce the spread of communicable illnesses at Camp. As recommendations are updated by health officials, we will adapt and update as well, and will be sure to inform you as any changes are made.
