What will camp be like in 2024?
As far as healthcare, in 2023 we were more or less back to pre-COVID "normal." We have no reason to expect 2024 to be any different, but if that changes we will place updates here AND will contact the families of all registered campers.
Questions about what to pack, arrival and departure procedures, or general healthcare at camp?
