We want everyone to be safe and have a wonderful time at camp this year. There are things we will ask of you before camp and during camp to help keep everyone safe:
Please remember that the day camp planning team is all volunteers and we are doing our best to keep everyone healthy and safe AND have a meaningful camp experience.
If you have any questions or concerns please email our camp directors at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you and we look forward to seeing you at camp this summer.
The BLSU Day Camp Planning Team
We recently received a list of COVID-19 restrictions for day camp from the council. The Day Camp Planning Committee is in the process of evaluating these to determine what changes will be made to our camp transportation and programing. This will take some time so please be aware we will be communicating changes with you as we make some modifications and decisions. As you all know the COVID-19 situation is fluid, and we may need to move back and forth on changes etc. Please know that we are working on everything as quickly as possible with the information we are given from the council. We thank you in advance for your patience.
These are the changes we can communicate with you right away.
Stay tuned for future communication about exactly how this will look.
