Summer Camps

Summer Camp 2020

Our community is our first priority.


We are closely monitoring the guidelines being developed by the CDC, American Camp Association (ACA), and Environmental Health & Engineering, Inc. (EHE), as well as recommendations by state and local authorities, to ensure that our summer camps remain healthy and safe for all students, staff, and family members.


If onsite camp is not in your forecast for this summer, consider joining our virtual program Think Tank!
