We're so sad to report that some of our very favorite summer camps are not operating for Summer 2020 because of all the many complications of Covid-19 and social distancing requirements. We're keeping a list right here so that parents can easily find them, remember them, and keep them in mind for Summer 2021. Listings with images indicate sponsors. See also Online Camp Guide, 2020 Day Camp Guide.
We expect this list to grow over time as we receive more information. Did we miss your fave? Drop a note in the comments?
