Camp 2021 & COVID-19
**Please check this page periodically for updates**
We have all watched COVID-19 impact our world and prayed for a quick resolution. It was with a very heavy heart that we had to cancel our 2020 program, due to the impact of the pandemic. Although we still deal with the uncertainty of this virus, we are VERY optimistic that better days are ahead and we are busy in the office planning and preparing for summer 2021.
We continue to monitor the pandemic very closely and are also following the state of Massachusetts, the CDC, and the American Camp Association (ACA) for continued guidance and support. Our priority, as always, is to ensure that everyone has a healthy and safe camp experience.
We are hopeful that we will be on campus next summer enjoying an unforgettable summer by the sea!
As we face the reality that we may be in a similar place for summer 2021, we are preparing a plan that will follow the Department of Public Health's (DPH) Camp Safety Guidelines for social distancing, reduced cohorts, face coverings, hand washing, and disinfecting. We will continue to watch these developments to see if/where we will need to make any adjustments as our program draws near.
To meet the DPH Camp Safety Guidelines, we will also need to limit cohort sizes which will reduce the capacity of campers and staff that will be allowed on campus. Therefore this will limit our enrollment numbers, for both our day and residential programs, to allow us to keep our campers and staff in smaller groups. PLEASE NOTE that we expect slots to fill up much more quickly, so we recommend parents register EARLY.
PROGRAM OFFERINGS & CAMPER SCHEDULES
Our program offerings and daily schedule were developed to operate under normal circumstances. Should we be required to run our 2021 program under the DPH Camp Safety Guidelines for the COVID-19 pandemic it could affect our daily blocks, the programs we are able to offer, and how we schedule campers for activities/courses.
Should the pandemic force us to cancel our 2021 program, refunds will be processed in full. We would automatically refund deposits/registration fees paid (if applicable) to the credit card used. You would NOT need to email a request to the office. Please allow up to 15 business days for us to process your refund and send you a confirmation via email. After the process date, your account may take up to 7 business days to reflect the refund. Any payment(s) made by check will be refunded through the Tabor Business Office by check, which can take up to 30 business days for processing. For all other cancelations, the standard refund policy will apply and can be found at https://taborsummer.org/registration-info.
