Below is the new look of camp for 2020!

Group and Enrollment Requirements
- Enrollment: Camp enrollment will be limited. Due to the need to socially distance, our camp will have a limited capacity this summer. We are currently working with the board of health to determine our license capacity. If you are already registered you will be getting a confirmation email within the next few days.
- Drop Off/Pick Up: To limit camper interaction outside of their regular group we will be staggering pickup drop off. If you have registered for camp, you will be getting instructions on a time frame you will be able to drop off and pick up your camper.
- Group Sizes: To ensure social distancing groups will be limited in sizes and will not be able to interact with other groups.
- Rain Days: Help us maintain social distancing! We ask parents to plan ahead as indoor space is very limited. When inclement weather hits, our campers will be asked to move indoors, apply facemasks, and stay in one specific area of the building. Rain days will not be as robust a camp experience as they were in previous years. We are asking parents to consider keeping their camper home on inclement or rainy days.
- Transportation: Due to social distancing regulations, we will not be able to offer bus transportation or field trips this summer.
- AM/PM Care: To ensure groups are as consistent as possible and limit campers from one group interacting with another group, we will not be offering AM/PM Care. Camp will only be available for the traditional camp day 9am-4pm.

- Questionnaire: As required by the department of public health, all camp families will be asked each day to fill out a health questionnaire before attending camp.
