As the days grow shorter and the anticipation builds, we are thrilled to announce that Camp Blue Ridge is gearing up for an unforgettable summer in 2023! We understand the eagerness of our campers and their families to return to the beloved traditions, camaraderie, and adventures that define the essence of Camp Blue Ridge. Rest assured, we’ve been hard at work to ensure that this summer is not only fun but also safe and healthy for everyone involved.

  1. Prioritizing Health and Safety: Our commitment to the well-being of our camp community remains unwavering. We have always been in communication with authoritative bodies such as the CDC, the American Camp Association, and local health departments drawing on the insights and recommendations from medical professionals to create a secure environment for all.
  2. Community Collaboration: We value the strength of our summer camp community, and we continue to stay connected. By sharing insights and recommendations within our network, we aim to foster a collective commitment to the safety and enjoyment of every camper. The collaborative efforts of our community ensure that we are well-prepared to face any challenges that may arise.
  3. Comfortable and Safe Living Arrangements: Cabin life is an integral part of the camp experience, and we are dedicated to making all cabin arrangements suitable, comfortable, and, most importantly, safe. Our focus is on creating a nurturing environment where campers can forge lasting friendships and create cherished memories.
  4. Enhanced Program and Activity Safety: From the archery range to the dining hall, every program/activity area and food service operation will adhere to the highest safety standards. Our team is committed to preparing, organizing, and cleaning these spaces in the safest manner possible, ensuring that campers can fully enjoy all the activities they love.
  5. Transparent Communication: Open and honest communication is paramount. We pledge to maintain the utmost transparency, providing direct and immediate updates from the Directors, staff, and through our social media channels. Your trust is invaluable, and we want you to feel informed and confident as we navigate the summer together.
  6. Accessible Support: Your Camp Blue Ridge family is always here for you. Whether you have questions, concerns, or just want to connect, we encourage you to reach out. Our team is available by phone, and we welcome the opportunity to arrange Zoom calls at your convenience.

As we eagerly approach our 52nd summer at Camp Blue Ridge, we extend our heartfelt thanks for your unwavering support. Together, we’ll create another amazing summer filled with laughter, growth, and lifelong memories. Wishing you all the very best, and here’s to a fantastic summer ahead!

Thank you,
