SBJ Camp Corona 2020-Virtual @ Your Home
Jul 20 – Jul 24 all-day

With summer quickly approaching, we are working hard to gather information to make the best decision we can regarding summer camp.

We must make sure that we can comply with all CDC guidelines, while also identifying and implementing the best safety practices recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics. Based on the information we have and recognizing there is much we cannot yet know; we have made the decision to have a virtual camp this year.

This is not a situation any of us ever thought we would be in. We also understand that many of you look forward to a time of recreation and socialization. We do, too. Our mission right now is your child’s safety. We will use this time to put together some great options.

Camp Corona will take place the week of July 20 – 24th. There will be morning gatherings on Zoom. Virtual videos, activities, and daily at home crafts, games and more. All supplies will be delivered to your home the week before.

If you would like your child to participate in our camp at home, please complete registration form below. We need you to include the siblings (ages 5 – 11 yrs. old) that will also participate. The registration deadline is June 5th.

This registration form is important. It allows us to create a line of daily communication and get your child age appropriate materials. We are excited about the possibilities and look forward to making new memories!
