COVID-19 has brought a lot of bad news and illness. Among the bad news, you can add summer camp cancellations in to the mix. The governor of Indiana has a plan for when different businesses and events can take place and he’s leaving it up to the CDC to decide how and when Indiana summer camp programs can proceed. Many groups have decided to run a modified camp with social distancing and limited numbers, others have decided to wait until July to run camp and still others have decided that it’s just not feasible to run summer camp in 2020.
We will do our best to keep this list updated, please let us know in the comments if you know of other cancelled summer camps programs.
