We know how much you are all longing to be back at Clearwater! This is probably especially true following last year’s no camp summer. The good news is that we are planning on campers returning to Clearwater in June, and we are working hard to make it the best experience possible! While the Clearwater magic will remain, we need to make some modifications in order to fulfill our commitment to camper and staff health and safety.
One of these modifications is the decision not to hold Work Weekend. In addition, there will be no visitors (including parents) at camp while camp is in session. Meaning… camper drop-off and pick-up, events for parents, and all camp tours will not be allowed. Logistics for opening day and closing day will have to be reinvented. To be consistent with our safety protocols, we know this is the right decision to not hold Work Weekend in 2021.
