PLAYING IT SAFE
SUMMER PLACE AT UHART

Dear Summer Place Families,

Happy New Year. We hope you are all safe and well, and were able to enjoy the special moments of the holiday season.

We are excited to share that Summer Place is welcoming back campers this summer. While camp will look a little different for the safety of our campers and the staff, it will still be packed with tons of enrichment and recreational activities.

ABOUT SUMMER PLACE

arts and crafts
  • Summer Place classes include enrichment opportunities such as Woodworking, STEM, Photography/Video, Theater, Culinary, Art, Wilderness/Nature, Recreational Sports, and more.
  • Each cohort of approximately 15 campers, led by a faculty member and assisted by two counselors, will stay together for the entire one-week camp experience.
  • Cohorts will be organized into age-specific groups with drop off/pick up occurring at the respective activity location.
  • We are closely monitoring CDC guidelines and will make sure to meet the requirements for PPE, social distancing, masks, health screenings, sanitizing, and quarantining. As we get closer to the camp start date, we will follow up with additional information.
  • L’il Place and Kinderplace will run half- and full-day programs as they have in the past and the SPLIT program will resume in 2022.
  • For the safety of campers, families, and staff, we will not be offering bus service, prepaid bag lunches, or extended day care in 2021. Campers are encouraged to bring their own lunches.
Summer Place will be new and exciting for our campers, while maintaining the highest standards of safety. We are updating our website to reflect these changes in protocol.

Registration for camp will open on Feb. 1. We will have an early-bird discount for people who register before March 15.

We hope that your camper will join us this summer. Best wishes for an amazing 2021!

Stay safe,
The Summer Place Team
