We are using CDC, local, state, and government suggested guidance to build the best plan to ensure everyone a safe and fun camp experience. We will continue to keep lines of communication open and transparent as summer camp approaches. One thing we know for sure: Kids will need camp more than ever. We hope you and your family are well and safe. These are extraordinary times that have moved us all to a new normal, and we know camp will look different this year.

Like you, we are continuing to monitor developments regarding the COVID-19 outbreak closely. We want to update you on our decision-making process and safety protocols moving forward. Here are some of the procedures we will institute for camp to keep our kids & teams safe:

All campers and staff will be temperature-checked, and we will ask a set of questions about their recent health at the time of arrival. Establishing and maintaining a safe and healthy camp experience remains our top priority.

In addition to the many steps we take every day to protect the health of our guests, campers, and staff, we are working closely with our board of directors to ensure that. We will be keeping parents updated on key decisions regarding changes to our programming and safety protocols.

We will be adjusting protocols as required per CDC and Health department guidelines, so we ask in advance for your patience as processes change accordingly. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions or concerns, contact Wayne and Robyn Stires YPI Directors
