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 2022.
Camp Weeks & Dates
All Summer Camps are available to register for one week at a time. You can mix-and-match your summer adventure with a variety of camps, add in camps between family vacations and trips, or simply register for one week this summer! Any way you camp, you're sure to have a summer to remember.
