In a typical year, we would spend this time putting the final touches on our camper and staff applications, answering your questions about which program is right for you, and looking forward to seeing the list of names as you register. Unfortunately, this is not a typical year.
There are a number of hurdles that prevent us from setting a firm summer 2021 program plan including a lack of guidance from the state and county about the guidelines overnight camps will need to follow. Fortunately, we are not the only camp in this position. We have been in regular contact with camps throughout California and we are all working together to seek guidance on what we will be allowed to do. For this reason, we will wait to announce our summer camp plan until the end of March. This will allow us ample time to adjust accordingly and develop the best programs possible for you and your family. Though we know this may be disappointing, we know it will allow for the safest and best programs with the lowest possibility of disruption in the long-run.
Uncertainties aside, there are programs we know that we will be able to run safely, regardless of the overnight camp situation. Outdoor day programs, backpacking trips, and continued virtual programs are all part of our 2021 plan and we are excited to make those happen. The one thing we absolutely know for certain is that we miss you and we can’t wait to see you soon!
