Safety protocols in place

All locations provide safety protocols that include temperature checks, health screening, mask requirements, physical distancing, increased sanitation and disinfection, and reduced staff-to-participant ratios.

Camp Connection staff members have been providing programming at community centers since early summer. Staff members are trained and focused on children’s well-being and protection at all times.

Thanksgiving and winter break camps will be offered during the holiday periods.
