Our Safe Summer Plan

For COVID-19

We eagerly look forward to welcoming campers back to Glen Arden for our 70th summer of operation. While we were sad that camp could not take place in 2020, we spent that time gaining a greater understanding of COVID-19 and how to provide the best camp experience in 2021. We strongly believe that children need camp more than ever and look forward to filling these mountains with the laughter, love, and friendship of our campers once again.

We plan to operate camp as normally as possible, while making necessary adjustments to programming and following best practices to ensure the safety of our campers and staff. Upgrades to the facility, from additional hand washing stations to telehealth technology in our infirmary, will aid us in providing the safest summer possible. Smaller cabin area groups may be necessary at the start of a session. While not likely, limitations created by the smaller group division may affect the availability of some camp activities. Protocols may change as we receive guidance from local, state, and national authorities, and we will adjust as required.

Below we have provided some frequently asked questions to help you understand our adjustments to the program where campers will be most affected. While we will make every effort to operate camp in a safe and responsible manner, it is important to note we cannot guarantee that we can operate this summer without exposure to COVID-19. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions you might have.
