COVID-19: Camper/ Camp Families Expectations
While camp will look a little different this year, what won’t change is our commitment to providing a fun and engaging experience that will provide opportunities for your child to explore the outdoors, unleash their creativity, and release their energy!

We need your help to keep our programs open! All registered participants and their families are expected to abide by the ODH/ODJFS/Governor's Orders, including the following Covid-19 Safety Protocols.

4. Face Masks: Face masks are required for all campers when (1) inside and (2) outside and unable to maintain 6 feet of social distance. Parents/guardians are asked to wear a mask during the check-in/out process. If medically unable to wear a face mask, a face shield that extends below the chin may be used.
