Why We Canceled In Person Camps

We love summer camp and love getting our campers outside, away from screens and immersed in nature.

This was not an easy decision but one that we made after consulting several other organizations, the American Camp Association and following the best recommendations available from the Centers for Disease Control and the State of Ohio.

Even though camps are allowed to open in the State of Ohio, they come with numerous restrictions that would have greatly affected the camp experience. Even with those restrictions in place, it is so hard to ask a child to wear a mask all day, or to be socially distant. As such, we couldn’t feel certain that even with restrictions that we could say that we were doing the right thing to stop the spread of the virus and more importantly, to keep campers, families, and our staff safe. 

We don’t take canceling lightly, and we are working hard to create an awesome experience with our Backyard Adventures. If you have questions or comments, don’t hesitate to reach out – we want to hear from you.
