We opened for Summer 2021 registration this past Saturday at noon. Because of limited capacity this year due to COVID, we chose to open spaces first to returning families, anyone who was registered to attend in 2020, and families connected with New England Yearly Meeting (our parent organization).
Wow: that was fast! We have already filled all of our open session spaces for camp. How unbelievably exciting it is to look forward to building in-person community on China Lake again this summer. We so earnestly wish that we could host all campers who want to spend time at Friends Camp this summer, but operating an overnight camp safely during a pandemic has required a reduced capacity as well as many other adjustments to our operating plan. You can read some FAQs about camp this summer here, and see our session schedule here.
We encourage interested families to sign up for our waitlist. We are actively working to expand capacity slightly if the pandemic situation improves significantly. It is likely we will take multiple campers of the waitlist for each session. Returning families are currently able to register for spaces on the waitlist, and we will open for waitlist registrations by new families starting at noon on January 30th.
If you have questions about camp, want to learn about your position on the waitlist, or anything else please feel free to get in touch with me at 207-877-4302 or email@example.com.
