Our plans for the summer of 2022 will include a comprehensive plan to keep our staff, campers, and camp community as safe and healthy as possible. Due to the close-knit and residential aspect of a camp community, we plan to require staff to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 before employment begins, in order to provide the safest possible environment for a summer community. If necessary, we will be prepared to implement additional safety protocols next summer that may include mask-wearing, physical distancing, best practices for sanitation and personal hygiene, and smaller group sizes. And we will need great staff like YOU to help us reach our goals and accomplish our mission no matter the challenges we face.
