Camp Format Information:

We will not offer any residential camp options this summer but are offering many on campus day camps in addition to some virtual camp options. The on campus camp programs will be conducted in a safe way with masks, social distancing, daily health attestation forms, and morning temperature checks. We're working closely with the university Risk Management Office to develop a great safety plan while also ensuring that the camps are still fun, meaningful, and engaging. We encourage students to apply soon because we're limiting the capacity more in programs this year and some camp programs are filling up.
