What is happening at Summer Camp?
Owl’s Hill remains committed to providing a safe and fun-filled camp experience. We're monitoring camp guidelines from the CDC and American Camp Association (ACA) as well as the State’s.
Extra precautions this year include:
  • A required pre-camp health questionnaire for campers and camp staff
  • Daily health screening of campers and camp staff
  • Assigning campers and camp staff into smaller groups of eight (8) for the entire week
  • Increased handwashing at an outdoor hand-washing station
  • Asking parents to pack a cloth face covering for their camper, in addition to sunscreen and bug spray
  • Staff serving Hot Dog Friday one-on-one, no buffet line
