We’re looking forward to seeing you at camp!

COVID updates: Right now, we are planning to hold all nine of our camp weeks this summer.. The health and safety of our community is our top priority, and we will continue to monitor the COVID situation and adjust our plans as necessary.

All participants must have a negative PCR test within 72 hours before arriving at camp and all participants over age 5 must be up to date with their COVID vaccinations including any booster dose(s) when eligible. Visit our COVID-19 page for more information and updates.
