In order to maintain cohorts and to properly staff these groups, we have reduced occupancy for each of our sessions. Please be mindful that registration spots are more limited as we will operate close to half capacity of a normal summer. Also, due to the screening process listed below, registration deadlines for each session will be posted and cannot be changed. Returning camp families will receive a link to register the week of April 26th. Registration for these families will begin May 1st. As always, 50% of the registration fee is required for a reservation. Full refunds will be issued for any COVID related cancellation on the part of the camper or camp.
The Registration Deadlines for each camp along with schedule for screening and testing can be found here.
Bland Scholarship Deadline is Friday, April 23rd.
Included in the State of Virginia's mandatory requirements for the reopening of overnight summer camps is, "the requirement for a negative molecular test within seven days prior to the beginning of camp, or a 14 day symptom screening for the camper and all persons in the Family as defined in Executive Order 72 that have contact with the camper. Campers utilizing symptoms screening must restrict their close contacts to those inside their Family as defined in Executive Order 72 for the duration of the 14 day period."
We have been advised by VDH that campers who are still attending school within the 14 day period prior to arriving at camp will not be eligible for the 14 day screening and will instead require a test.
Please read Understanding Screening & Testing to determine which option is for you.
Our current Pre-Screening Form can be downloaded here.
Expect a minimal contact check in procedure. Campers will need to travel to camp with members of their household only. We will not be able to accept campers in carpool groups, church vans, or other alternate arrangements. Families will be greeted at their vehicle. Once a staff member has received the testing or pre-screening form, and the camper's temperature has been checked, they may unload. A team leader from your camper's cohort will help them unpack and get settled. To reduce traffic, wait times, and to help campers receive individualized help, check-in times will be staggered and assigned for families.
Please be assured that prior to arrival we will communicate with you every step of the way. All check-in communication will be done in advance by phone. Those who indicate allergies, use of medication, or health concerns will have a scheduled call with our Health Officer. Please note we will not be able to conference or collect additional monies at check-in.
Day Camp is now tentatively scheduled for Saturday, July 17th.
Please note while many of the same protocols apply to Day Camp, it is a separate event not defined under the Mandatory Requirements for Overnight Camps.
Please expect more information in the coming months regarding a different screening and drop off process for this day.
Registration for these first time campers is set to begin June 1st.
