Health & Safety

WA Summer Camps is putting in place a number of measures to keep our campers and adults safe in July, after developing a risk mitigation strategy in consultation with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control, the State of Georgia, and the American Camp Association. Our community’s well-being is our top priority. We’re asking parents and camp employees to partner with us by taking steps at home and on campus to help keep everyone healthy and prevent community spread of COVID-19.
