GRE Digger Dash
We appreciate the many community events, fundraisers and school opportunities the PTO has brought to Gold Rush. The PTO has raised thousands of dollars to support our instructional program and enrichment offerings. They also started many traditions that are enjoyed by students and families alike, including the Digger Dash, Western Night and Sock Hop.
Unfortunately, COVID-19 prevented our PTO from being as active as it has been in prior years. We thank the current board members for their ongoing work behind the scenes and efforts this year. 
The members of our current PTO board have children who are graduating from Gold Rush this year. GRE is currently looking for parents interested in serving in a variety of roles for the 2021-2022 school year. If you would like to learn more about PTO opportunities, please join us for an informational meeting on Friday, May 7th, from 8:45-9:45 AM. Click here to express an interest in becoming involved in the PTO.

Stone Canyon Summer Camp - Registration Open
In summer 2021, Stone Canyon will offer both our Overnight Camps and Day Camps. Stone Canyon offers a wide variety of activities and our dedicated staff is committed to ensuring your camper will learn new skills, make new friends, and is safe while at camp. Our goal is to help our campers become more confident and daring individuals, all while having the best time of their lives!

While our programs may look a bit different to follow State COVID-19 guidelines, we aim to provide the same connection and adventure that make our summer camp special. In this email, we have highlighted important information and for more detailed information, please visit our website.

If Stone Canyon cannot provide programs due to COVID-19 or if your camper cannot attend camp due to COVID-19, you will receive a full refund minus $50 to cover our registration fees. We are asking parents only to pay the deposit at this time. This helps us greatly if an unfortunate circumstance comes about where we do have to administer many refunds at once. Parents are asked to wait to pay the full camp tuition until April 1. If you have any questions, please call us at Stone Canyon. We are happy to chat with you over the phone.

COVID- 19 Guidelines (*guidelines are subject to change based on updates from CDE and Tri-County Health). To read our detailed policy on COVID guidelines, please visit our website. 

Increased Cleaning Procedures: Stone Canyon will disinfect and clean all equipment and common spaces before and after camper use.
Cohorts: While indoors, campers will be assigned to groups of 10. If campers are outdoors, group size can increase to 25. These groups will not mix with other groups during the week. To help with this, Stone Canyon will not be offering clubs this summer. Camper’s will have an opportunity to try all clubs with their assigned Cohort throughout the week. Camper’s will be assigned to groups by age.
Pre-screening: Staff and Campers will pre-screen using a written record one week before camp. When arriving at camp, all staff and campers will undergo an arrival day health screening.
Required negative COVID test: It will be required that all campers receive a negative COVID test within 72 hours of arrival day.
Social Distancing and Masks: Whenever possible, campers and staff will maintain a distance of 6 feet. If socially distancing is not possible, campers will be asked to put on a mask. Masks will be required indoors. The only exception is at night in their assigned cabin. Camper’s may remove their mask in their dorm but will continue to socially distance.

Register Today
We are limiting the number of open spots this summer. If the week you are interested in is full, we strongly encourage you to sign up your camper for our Waitlist. If guidelines loosen, then we will be able to open up additional spots this summer.
