This past camp season in 2021, we had a successful summer with no cases of covid because we were prepared and ready for the challenges. We worked closely with our Medical Team that safely made it the best summer yet! It is clear that there is significant importance of Camp for our children; the fresh air, connecting with nature, impacting our youth and fostering a healthy, nurturing environment for the next generation to grow. While we don't have our exact COVID protocols for summer 2022, we know that we are capable of running a safe and successful summer for our 100th year!
