Corona Virus COVID-19 Impact On Summer 2020

To our Camper Parents and Families:

We hope that you and your families are safe and healthy during these unpredictable times. The COVID-19 virus has put just about every aspect of our lives into chaos including plans for our children over the coming summer.  There’s information coming from many sources and it’s increasingly difficult to know what to believe and who is a credible authority.

Summercamps.com has created this page as a reference for you to link to the latest information from experts and authorities that you can trust.  Here are the sources we recommend:

What about summer camp this year, summer 2020?  Each camp is making contingency plans to respond to the Covid-19 threat.   To assist you with your plans, we have asked each camp to share their plans on their listing on our site and to update it as new information becomes available.  Please check back frequently for the latest news.

HOW TO KNOW IF YOUR CAMP IS OPEN THIS SUMMER

We suggest you reach out to your chosen camp to understand their plans for Summer 2020. Your camps know you have important questions.  They are pulling together contingency plans and responses. With guidance and local regulations changing frequently, the best source of information about each camp is the camp themselves.  Please use the links on your camp’s listing on our site for the most current contact information.  You can find their listing using our convenient search tool on our home page.

Together we will weather these circumstances.  We hope you and your family stay safe and healthy, and we look forward to offering you good news soon about options for summer 2020.
