Summer 2020 Update

Summer 2020 Update

Dear Camp Family,

With heavy hearts we share the sad reality that due to Covid-19 we will be unable to operate as usual for Summer 2020. The summer camp experience that we all know and love is now postponed until Summer 2021. This decision has come from many hours of research, meetings, and conversations with fellow Summer Camp professionals and our local Health Department.



We remain committed to:

  1. The health and safety of our entire camp family. 

  2. Providing community, support, and camaraderie to our camp family in whatever capacity possible. 

  3. Living out Aj Ypekanbe, “Serve All,” in all that we do. We will continue to serve each other above ourselves by living out our core values: inclusivity, empathy, stewardship, integrity, authenticity, and mindfulness. 


We are getting creative in our brainstorming for what we possibly can do this summer! We can’t emphasize enough the importance of your voice in guiding our steps as we dream and plan (all within  the parameters of local health department regulations, of course). Please take a few moments to fill out this short and simple survey.

Help us make 2020 great! 

Take our 2020 survey: 



We are immensely grateful to each and every one of you that has made this business one full of joy and life. 

We will miss you all, the ones we knew and the one’s we didn’t get to. We will miss many things this summer… The wonderful sounds of kids playing. All the beautiful campers and staff. The intense, fullness and immenseness of life lived abundantly. The songs sung around the campfire and beneath the stars, surrounded by the towering pines. The buzz at mealtimes. The peanut butter jelly table. The Birthday Song and subsequent huckage. “What time is snack time?” Lazy afternoons by the Lagoon. “Story time is OPEN!” The Overnight and the growth and camaraderie that happens there. The gift of watching the camp family come together and learn to love and lift each other up by living Aj Ypekanbe, “Serve All.”  This is the heart song that we, the Ellena family, and many others, have sung every summer since 1956 & it will be sung again – Summer 2021, we look forward to you!

We hope each of you, new or veteran, will consider rolling over your enrollment with us so that you can take part in the magic!

  1. Do you have any sessions open this summer? I understand the program will be modified for Covid 19. We are looking for an option for our 12-year-old son. Thanks so much!
