“IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: Due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation,
it is important to note ALL Summerscape and Camp Rocks registration has
been suspended until further notice. This DOES NOT mean camp is cancelled. However, our department is actively working with state and local o cials to determine whether current operational plans can resume safely this summer and/ or if modi cations will need to be made in-order to operate. In the event we are unable to make reasonable modi cation(s) if needed during this time, a decision regarding the cancellation of camp operations will be made at that time.
Thank you for understanding, and be safe!”
