COVID-19 Statement & Updates – updated May 12, 2020
Safety continues to remain our highest priority for our campers and staff. Unfortunately, it was decided this week by University of Tampa that summer camps will not be permitted on campus. We are guided by public health officials regarding whether appropriate progress has been made and whether a phased return is ready to begin. We are also awaiting the CDC guidelines to safely operate camps this summer.
Knowing that camps this year may be “different” from in the years past. We plan on communicating with all campers and families to provide follow up information as well as our plans for the summer by Monday, May 25th (this date is subject to change), and can be sooner or slightly later, depending on when we receive the CDC guidelines.
On May 25, 2020 (tentative date), we will outline our plans for the summer and have additional information/options that will be available for our campers this summer. We are actively looking at alternate sites for our youth day camps and feel confident we will be able to provide programming for our campers when the local & state restrictions are lifted.
For those who have pre-registered for youth day camps, you are secured placement in our summer camp/s when we are able to resume. We want to be transparent with families as we feel there will be a capacity limit restriction in place that will be less than our normal capacity in years past. Safety of our campers will remain a premium for our camps offered and we will not exceed the capacity limit for any camp/s. If families want refunds for pre-registrations to date, you will be giving up your secured placement in any camps offered in the 2020 summer programming. For example – if the maximum capacity for day camp is 50 campers, once that limit is reached – the camp will be closed. All currently pre-registered will be given 1st priority for camps or changes in dates when our adjusted schedule is secured.
**If you request a refund, you are forgoing your placement in the camp/s for the summer. To get back into a camp listed, you will need to register online again and lose current placement in camp/s. To request a refund please email Adrian Bush at firstname.lastname@example.org
**The Resident (overnight) camp scheduled for June 12-14, 2020 & the College ID camp July 19, 2020 @ University of Tampa are cancelled. We will be looking to do a college ID camp in the fall @ University of Tampa. Refunds will be issued to all families who have registered for either camp. Any registered Resident camper for the June 12-14 camp ages 9-13 years old will be given priority placement to move their registration to a listed day camp once the dates are secured or given a refund.
Stay safe and we look forward to seeing you this summer.
