We are super excited to let you know that we are planning to run camp on a schedule close to pre-pandemic! Our intent is to get our campers into camp safe and healthy so that we can enjoy a near pre-pandemic program for Summer 2022. In order to do this, we are going to do the following:
Details regarding the scheduled drop off and pick times are found on our website under the "Parents" tab and "Opening and Closing Day". VERY IMPORTANT: the scheduled times are based on your camper's CURRENT grade for 2021/2022 school year
. If you have multiple sons, you can drop off/pick up individually at their assigned time or both at the later son's scheduled pick up time. Parents will be asked to remain in their cars during the entire process. Our goal is for you to be able to meet your son's counselor or Head Counselor while you are in your car and we will do our best to make this happen.
We will be offering airport pickups and dropoffs from Asheville, NC (AVL) and Greenville, SC (GSP). You may find detailed information about flying in your CampInTouch account
under "RU flying?" forms or on our website under the "Parents" tab / "Transportation".
More detailed information about testing and health screening will be emailed to you closer to your session start date.
Once everyone is at camp we will run all activities as normal except ocean surf trips which we will not be offering this year. We are adding skurfing (surfing behind wakeboard boats) on Lake Jocassee. We will have one meal sitting. We will be offering out of camp trips to campers everyday but will require them to wear masks when in the camp vehicles. We will be rapid antigen testing (nasal swab) in the infirmary when campers have symptoms in line with what the local and regional health departments say are current for COVID symptoms at that time.
As you know we now live in an ever changing world. If things go in a different direction between now and when your son starts camp, we might have to make some changes.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
What a Day!!! Boy are we Enthusiastic about Summer 2022!
