Camp Cherokee currently plans to continue camps this summer with adjustments.
05/01/20 – Adjusted Kids Camp Schedule & Registration Changes
Gibbs Family Reunion has been CANCELED
Because of this, kids camps have been moved back one week. This will hopefully allow more time and a better chance for us continuing camp this summer. Teen camp will start July 5.
The New York State Department of Health will make the decision if Camp Cherokee is allowed to be open this summer and under what conditions. We will be following the CDC and the American Camp Association recommendations and the NYS Department of Health requirements to operate a safe camp.
Additional health screening is planned for the arrival at camp, including temperature checks. Anyone running a temperature or having other symptoms of illness will not be admitted to camp. Other procedures will be outlined later.
The registration process will be different this year. If the camp is limited on how many children may attend each camp, admission will be by pre-registration based on the order the applications are received. Pre-registration is highly recommended since there may not be room for walk-in registrations on the first day of camp. Send the child’s application and payment to the address on the application. If we are limited in the number of campers, the pre-registration period will end when the camper limit has been reached. You will be notified of your child’s admission status. If the camp is not allowed to operate this summer, your payments will be fully refunded.
04/02/20 – All Camps As Scheduled
The leadership at Cherokee are continually reviewing and evaluating the current health situation and are in contact with the NY Health Department and other authorities about the safety of camp. We will provide updates as information becomes available about the recovery efforts and camp progress.
