The health and safety of our camp community have always been of paramount importance, and remain our steadfast compass when making difficult decisions.
Therefore, we have made the painful decision to cancel the StM Summer Day, Cottage, Theater, and Athletic Camps.
There is nothing more important to us than our campers and their well-being. Given the current guidance from health officials and governmental leaders, it is not feasible to conduct StM summer camps as we have in the past. The high-quality, interactive camp experience that we are known for -- and that your camper deserves -- is not possible with social distancing. Given the substantial uncertainty about conditions and health protocols for summer camps, we have decided to cancel all StM summer camp programming.
This decision is probably as disappointing for you as it is for us. Please know that this decision was only reached after careful consideration of the guidelines from health officials, government leaders, and the American Camp Association. We had hoped to reopen our campus in time to operate over the summer; however, we believe this course of action is in the best interest of the safety of StM summer campers and their families, as well as our staff.
Camp tuition, minus the $25 application fee, will be refunded.
We will automatically issue refunds, including the deposit, beginning June 1. You do not need to request your refund; however, please know that our current processing time for refunds is approximately four weeks. Questions about refunds can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
We are going to stay in “virtual touch” during the summer through email and social media. It cannot replace the magic of our in-person camp community, but we will do our best. We are already making plans for Summer 2021 and can’t wait to see you back on campus!
Please stay safe and healthy, and reach out to us if you have any questions.
