  • Drinks will be provided- a volunteer will pour all the drinks so that individuals just have to grab a cup off of a table


  • We will encourage activities that take up a lot of space, that do not bring many people in the same area, and that have little contact. Some examples are swimming, capture the flag, and soccer.
  • Although there is a game room in the basement of the main building, we will not allow anyone to make use of that area.
  • Singing will always be outside and with enough space for people to be spread out.


  • Son-Life camp has 88 beds for us to use. We will be the only group utilizing these beds/cabins, so we will be able to spread kids evenly over the 7 cabins. What percentage of the beds we use will depend on how many students sign up. We estimate 54 people coming. Last year we had 40 students and 8 leaders, this year to have 2 leaders per cabin we will have 14 leaders for a total of 54 people.
