Camp OUTdoors! Program 2021-04-21T16:45:36+00:00

COVID-19 Update on 2021 Summer Program

Camp OUTdoors is postponing our in-person summer program until 2022. We are very sad we are not able to gather together again this year; however we want to be absolutely sure we can ensure the safety of our campers & camp staff to the best of our ability. We understand that this may be disappointing. We CANNOT wait to see y’all in 2022!

After Camp OUTdoors: Online in 2020, we’ve taken what we learned from camper feedback and further developed the program to add more workshops, decrease cabin size, and increase total camp time. This means richer conversations, deeper connections, and more Camp OUTdoors!

As in 2020, we are pausing the usual application process for Camp OUTdoors and will welcome all campers who fully complete registration for Camp OUTdoors: Online.
