We are touching base about camp for this summer and how it may be affected by the Coronavirus.
First and foremost, however, we want everyone in the camp community to know that we are thinking about you and hoping that you and your families are safe and healthy. It is certainly a challenging time – being separated from friends and family, learning home-schooling on the fly, working from home, or perhaps not working at all, among numerous other challenges. For anyone who has family members or friends who are sick from Covid-19, we are especially thinking of you and hoping for speedy recoveries.
As you can imagine, we, the camp family, have been thinking lots about the plans for this summer. At this point, we feel it would be premature to make any final decisions about the camp schedule. So, for now, we plan to open on the regular schedule, with counselors arriving for orientation on June 21, 2020, and campers arriving a week later, on Sunday, June 28, 2020, for First Term.
We realize that changes to the summer may be necessary depending on a host of factors including the path and timetable of the Coronavirus. In light of this, we will revisit our plans toward the end of April and communicate with everyone our thinking at that time.
Regarding camp fees, know that we will fully refund all payments, including deposits, if campers are unable to attend, or if camp can’t go forward. Also, we will be as flexible as possible with families regarding any new issues that come up due to the extreme situation facing all of us. We will try to help in any way we can.
Camp Greenbrier hasn’t missed a summer since its beginning in 1898 and we are hopeful that this summer will simply be another spectacular adventure with campers paddling on the Greenbrier, shooting archery, and making great friends!
Do not hesitate to contact us if you have questions or concerns about anything. And again, we hope everyone in your family is well.
Will & the Camp Family
