While camps may look different due to COVID-19, we will continue to follow the guidelines provided by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, the Center for Disease Control, and the American Camp Association just like we did last summer to give your camper the best and safest camp experience possible. We will continue to strive to make each camp a fun and enjoyable experience while being safe and age appropriate. See you this summer!
