WLC COVID-19 Update 5

Dear WLC Family,

Here is the latest on what we're working on...

  • We are continuing to think about our options for summer 2020!  In addition to the 4-week option we presented a couple of weeks ago, another option we are thinking is that maybe we could welcome those campers, AND their families, who are working on Woodsman tests to come spend a week at camp. While family members enjoy a camping-like experience, campers would take and pass tests to get closer to becoming a Woodsman. In addition to weekly virtual sessions, our Leaders in Training (LITs) would be onsite for two weeks for Lifeguard and Leadership Training. Governor Sununu's comments regarding resident camps being problematic, although not a final decision on their opening, have given us pause. In the meantime we have received guidelines from the American Camp Association and the CDC. Let's just say they are more onerous and will have a greater effect on the program than we had even dreamed. The health and safety of our campers and staff on site this summer is of paramount importance to us.
  • We still have a Final Payment Due Date of June 15th in the chance that we are able to operate a summer camp schedule. In the event that we have to delay summer camp to 2021, those families that have paid will have the option to receive a full refund, including their deposit, roll their deposit to summer 2021 or donate their deposit to WLC operating costs. Click here for our updated COVID-19 cancellation policy.
  • Thank you to those that joined us for our Re-ZOOM-ions! We are planning future Re-ZOOM-ions and hope that everyone will join again and invite friends that may have missed the call. These are a great opportunity to share memories, pictures and time with your WLC family. 
  • We have cancelled our work weekends but we hope that you and a friend will be able to come up for a day to work at camp. Please let us know if and when you'd like to come help out. Weekdays work better for us but are happy to set you up for a weekend. 

There are a few things we would love for you to be doing while stuck at home...

  • Stay safe, healthy and optimistic!
  • Remember that a community is a community whether in-person or virtual. You're part of our family and we want to connect with you in any way you feel comfortable!

    • Questions are designed for all age groups and include some non-WLC trivia such as sports and music.
