This session is for those who have finished grades 9-12 (those who graduated high school in 2020 are also welcome to sign-up as campers--contact Karen Schlabach to get registered).
In 2021, we are requiring that all participants have the COVID-19 vaccine OR show up at camp with a negative COVID-19 test taken within the previous 2-3 days. Additionally, all camp participants are asked to be extra cautious in the 2-weeks prior to camp by wearing a mask, staying 6-feet apart from others, and avoiding crowds where these two things are not being observed by all attendees. Masks will be required during camp and campers will be kept in small cohorts throughout the week.
Episcopalians have been attending Summer Camp the first week in June at Camp Wood YMCA for over 80 years. Camp Wood is accredited by the American Camp Association–a process that has over 300 safety and quality standards. There are separate age-appropriate Christian education, camp activities, and sleeping arrangements for all three age-groups, as well as healthy well-balanced meals with accommodations available for allergies.
Camp Wood features a variety of activities such as horseback riding, archery, climbing tower, canoeing, kayaking, swimming, water slide, mud slide, arts and crafts, and sports. The volunteer Episcopal staff provides solid Christian education, featuring worship, music, small group discussions, and prayer.
