Up with People Jr. Response to COVID-19

Dear Up with People Jr.,
The health and safety of our Jr. campers, staff, and their families has always been and will continue to be our top priority—especially now as we face COVID-19 as a global community. For the past couple of months, we have spent a considerable amount of time listening to the recommendations of local, state, and federal authorities, The CDC, and WHO so we can respond appropriately. While our plans are evolving and ever-changing, we want to share with you where we stand today and how we are responsibly preparing for what is to come next.
After careful consideration, we have decided to amend our plans and still hope to spend time and create life-long memories with our campers this summer. All our camps will be held in July and August. June camp dates are in the process of being rescheduled and we will let you know of the new dates and locations as soon as they have been finalized. We understand these changes impact our families in different ways. We hope that each of you will be able to attend our July and August dates. If you cannot reschedule, or in the unfortunate circumstances that we are forced to cancel this summer, we will offer a full refund.
In these unprecedented times, we recognize that summer camp will be more important than ever. Rest assured that new operational procedures will be put in place that adhere to guidelines of the CDC, WHO, local health departments and best practices of the American Camping Association to keep everyone safe and healthy.
As we continue to prepare for the summer, we will communicate any further operational/ scheduling changes and any other information needed as it becomes available. We also encourage you to reach out us via email if you have any questions and/or concerns. We can always be reached at info@upwithpeoplejr.org
Up with People Jr. may look and feel a little different this year. Our world looks different. Even with all these differences, we will continue to impact and inspire our communities through music and performance, global awareness, education, community service, and summer camp fun. We hope your camper will be part of it. We love and care for our camper families and we are planning on having another incredible summer of Up with People Jr.
Much love,
Diar, Walter, Lindsay and the rest of the Up with People Jr. team
