After months of uncertainty as to whether or not we will be able to have camp this summer, we have finally been given the preliminary green light by L.A. County to open camp this summer, subject to our ability to conform to various modifications and safety protocols.
Here's where things stand now.
We have submitted to the L.A. County Department of Beaches and Harbors (the government agency who licenses and permits us) a written proposal detailing how we plan to conform to the new guidelines. Once they've reviewed our proposal, we hope to receive official approval from them we can reopen camp. At that point - which we hope will happen this week - we hope to open registration to campers!
Regarding operating dates, our hope is to open camp sometime between mid-July to early August while operating for at least 4 to 6 weeks this summer. At the same time, please remember protecting the health and safety of our campers is our top priority, so we will only open camp if: 1) we get final approval from the County (hopefully this week or next), and 2) we feel we can operate camp safely and feasibly in light of COVID-19.
We will keep you updated as further details become available. If you would like to be notified if and/or when we are permitted to open, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know you want to join our interest list. At that point, we expect a large enrollment rush, so please be prepared to act quickly. Thank you!
