Summer Camp Info

Summer Camps 2020

*We appreciate your patience as we work out the kinks in our new registration system

The health and safety of our students and staff remains our top priority. As we plan for summer camps, we are following closely all directives coming from the CDC, Summit County Health Department, and the American Camp Association (ACA). That planning currently is centered around the guidelines specific to Summer Youth Camps laid out by Summit County on May 1. Please see those guidelines starting at the bottom of page 25 of the Public Health Order here (https://www.summitcounty.org/DocumentCenter/View/10898/Joint-Public-Health-Order-2020-05---Stabilization-Phase-signed). We will have to stay flexible as the situation progresses, and ask for your patience and understanding through this process.

Please note the following regarding camp and registration:

  • If any camp must be cancelled due to changing guidelines, you will be refunded in full.
  • If a camp must be rescheduled to different dates due to changing guidelines, you will be refunded in full if the new dates do not work for your family.
  • When we open registration next week, we are following the guidelines from the CDC for the current phase of stabilization. This means that we can only allow residents of Summit county to register for camp at this time. We cannot allow visitors or those that live in other counties to register for camp.
  • As we cannot have live performances in adherence to the limited group numbers required by social distancing protocols, all showcases this summer will be filmed and sent to families to watch with their fabulous performers.
