We hope you are all remaining healthy and safe during this COVID-19 outbreak. We are facing a new and different problem which few have seen before. While camp is months away, many are wondering if the outbreak will affect camp. The short answer is "we don't know". It is safe to say that we are all hopeful that it will not, and camp will go on as planned. We will update this message to convey new information as it becomes available.
Stay safe and take care of yourself, your family and your friends.
