During this unprecedented and uncertain time, we have been planning and preparing for summer as usual with the hopes that we would be able to safely run our summer camp program.
For 75 years, Camp Shaver has striven to maintain the safest possible camp program that we can. In the last few months, we have taken into consideration the recommendations and guidelines the CDC developed for the American Camp Association. We’ve looked at a multitude of options for keeping groups to small numbers or separated.
In an effort to protect campers and staff and make sure that Camp Shaver is positioned to continue serving campers, families and guests for years to come, we have decided to cancel all summer programming for 2020.
This is a heart-breaking and incredibly difficult decision and was not entered into lightly by our staff and board of directors. We feel it is important to remain consistent with orders, recommendations, and guidance from government officials and healthcare professionals. Due to the many unknowns of this virus, and the trust that so many have put in Camp Shaver to provide a safe environment for all, we cannot – in good faith – offer the high quality experience that we promise and you expect.
