WLC COVID-19 Update 2

Dear WLC Family,

Here is the latest on what we are doing during this very uncertain time...

  • We continue our planning to open camp for summer 2020! It may look a little different but we plan to be the fun, social, wilderness experience children are currently desperate for.
  • In a Zoom meeting with our 2020 Nurse, Amy, and our Nurse Consultant, Diane, we started working on updated procedures for the 2020 summer.
  • Based on information discussed in virtual meetings with the NH Camp Directors Association, our extremely knowledgeable Board of Trustees and other camp organizations, we are in the process of creating a financial policy for families that will keep families and camp financially viable if camp were to be cancelled or delayed.
  • We met via Zoom with some of our vendors, with whom we have made financial commitments, to discuss relief in the event of a compromised season.
  • We submitted applications for small business loans to help us continue to pay for operational costs during the lead-up to camp. 
  • We are paying close attention to the CDC recommendations and therefore will be limiting the number of participants for our May 9th work weekend. If you are interested in helping clean-up camp on May 9th please email or call camp ASAP to reserve your spot. 
    • As recommendations change and we get closer to the start of camp, we will be hosting other work days at camp and will notify everyone via email and Facebook.
  • We are creating virtual camp trivia sessions via Kahoot (it's OK if you don't know what that is, we will send out more details next week).
 There are a few things we would love for you to be doing while stuck at home...
  • Stay safe, healthy and optimistic.
  • Show your camp spirit in unique ways like Derrick (see picture above)!
  • Get those camper forms on CampDoc.com filled out!
  • Tell your son to follow us on Instagram @williamlawrencecamp
  • Channel your son's TikTok obsession into a video dedicated to camp and have them tag @williamlawrencecamp and #BillLarry (they will know what we are talking about!)
  • Friend Bill Larry on Facebook (you must have a Facebook account) so you can watch "The Most Interesting Man on the Knoll" updates.
  • Help us build our Alumni base by sending us updated contact info for WLC friends you've recently reconnected with and make sure they friend Bill Larry!
  • Follow the William Lawrence Camp Page on LinkedIn (you must have a LinkedIn account).
  • Consider WLC when you're thinking about charitable contributions. 
  • Please do not remit any further payments for summer 2020 until you receive an update from us. As a reminder, at this time, May 15th is the new final payment due date. 
  • Keep day-dreaming about the awesome WLC 2020 Summer we are planning!
We can't wait to see you on the Knoll for summer 2020!
