COVID PRECAUTIONS: With the State and town guidelines continually changing, we are unable at this time to issue a statement around precautions this far in advance of a camp to be held in July and August. We will send an email out statement approximately 2 weeks prior to the start of camp to notify you of what precautions we will be taking, what you will need to be doing in order to attend camp. We will be following whatever the state and town mandates are at that time in order to assure that your child is as safe as possible while attending our camp.
