Kids Day Camps
2021 STEMPLICITY GAMES CAMPS
All camps are planned to be hosted in-person; however, due to COVID-19, we anticipate that camps will be opening at a reduced capacity. This may shift or change as we get closer to the summer based on state mandates. When running camps, based on then-current mandates, we may have to operate with restrictions and precautionary measures, such as maintaining social distancing, requiring face coverings and frequent handwashing. All reusable supplies will be disinfected before and after each camp session.
