Clearwater is about the friendships and adventures that draw our campers and staff together each year and the support from our alumnae, parents, and friends who make this possible. We know this is sad news to hear.
The decision to cancel Clearwater’s summer 2020 programs (Work Weekend, Camp, Family Camp) was made from an all-encompassing process of looking at regulations and recommendations placed on our summer operation. We followed guidance from the State of Wisconsin, the American Camping Association (ACA), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), local health departments, and medical experts to support our decision.
We also considered whether we could provide a true Clearwater experience as well as what the potential risks might be for our Summer 2020 participants. We have always been committed to providing a safe environment for campers, families, staff, and our local community.
At this time, the situation continues to evolve, and there remains too little known about COVID-19. Therefore, we chose to suspend programming this summer.
