Update, May 29, 2020:
To our campers, students, parents, and teachers,
We are excited to share that we will be able to hold several of our summer camps starting June 28. While we have always had student and camper safety foremost in our plans, we have developed and implemented a COVID-focused safety plan this year. The plan details extra precautions we are taking, additional procedures we have adopted, and new requirements for our campers and their families. In short, we will have daily health checks of all campers and staff, we will follow physical distancing guidelines and require wearing of masks in group situations and there will be an increased frequency of cleaning and sanitizing of areas used by campers and students. You can find more detailed information and requirements in the COVID Safety and Operations Plan (e)mailed to you with the other camp materials.
Unfortunately, we will not be able to host day camps this year but I hope that we see you and your ocean enthusiasts at day camps in 2021.
