Health & Safety at Camp

We know, now more than ever, kids need the fresh air, social interaction (with precaution), and growth opportunities only camp can provide right now.  We want to help kids get back to a sense of normalcy and make up for time lost.  We are sure you have plenty of questions about how we will create a safe camp community. Building on the success of last summer, our track record of effectively adapting and delivering safe youth programming throughout the year, and more, we’re eagerly looking forward to summer 2021.
