We are excited to inform you that we have assembled an extensive plan, allowing us to safely host camps in accordance with the County Health Department’s guidelines (Order No. HO-COVID19-09, Sect. 16.F.XXVI).

The safety and health of our campers and their families remains our number one priority, so we continue to be cautious, collecting as much information as possible to ensure we can return to play responsibly. The information changes daily and we are expecting the County to make another change sometime between today and June 1. So, we are waiting until then to unveil our officail plan as to ensure it is as inclusive as possible.

We can say that camps will follow strict social distancing guidelines, be much shorter in format, be limited to a much smaller number of campers (each of which will be assigned thier own dedicated space) and will not have any games/drills that require direct contact.

We will send an email update with more information as soon as it is available. In the meantime, we suggest enrolling in one of the currently listed camps, as campers enrolled at the time of the announcment will receive priority registration for the reformatted camps. A full refund will be available to anyone that decides not to enroll in the reformated camps.

Note: The above applies to Day Camps only, not our Junior Camps. We are still determining if, given the current regulations, there is a safe way to conduct camp for our younger junior campers.
