COVID-19 & Camp Ideal
We understand the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) is on your mind as the camp season approaches. While we are hopeful that camp will continue uninterrupted, we know that this is no guarantee and want to assure you that the health and safety of our community is our priority. We plan on following all safety guidelines to ensure a safe camp experience. Should anything change due to COVID-19 related circumstances or you deem camp unsafe we will offer a 100% refund of all tuition and registration fees. Masks will be worn while indoors.
