Register for Camp

Step 1: Review COVID-19 Guidelines 

(This plan will certainly be changed, and may not be required by the start of summer camps 2022, please continue to check back closer to summer)

Please review our 2021 COVID-19 Preparedness document carefully; it contains detailed descriptions of how rooming, meals, registration, etc. worked last summer. Details for 2022 will be changed, but we will continue a few practices such as maximizing air flow and being outside as much as possible for summer 2022.


Campers who do not adhere to these guidelines are not welcome at camp and will be sent home. 

Guidelines will be adjusted accordingly when regulations change.
