To Dawson Summer Camps families:
We are all hearing news daily about coronavirus and the COVID-19 flu. The health and safety of the Dawson Summer Camps community, whether campers or staff, is our top priority, and all decisions are made with that in mind. We greatly value our relationships with all of you, and want those to continue long after this challenging time.
Our hope and expectation at this time is for Dawson Summer Camps to proceed as planned. While Dawson and other area schools are discontinuing classes temporarily, we are hopeful that the region’s proactive approach will result in us all having returned to normal activities three months from now.
CLEANING PROTOCOL: Dawson School has had no confirmed cases of COVID-19 on our campus. The School maintains aggressive cleaning protocols that will be continued through summer camps. We have a professional cleaning team that is experienced in health outbreaks, such as these, and the extra protocols they require. We also work closely with staff to educate all on best practices around hygiene.
RESCHEDULE / REFUND POLICY: Dawson Summer Camps’ is amending its stated refund policy as follows: 75% refund if cancellation is prior to April 15, and 50% until two weeks prior to camp start, no refund within two weeks of camp start. PLEASE NOTE: This policy will be re-visited if we are forced to completely cancel camps.
NEXT COMMUNICATION: We will provide you all an update in the event there is a change to any of the above -- and we will provide an update/check-in no later than Monday, April 6, no matter what the circumstance. We will continue to communicate regularly.
WEBSITE: Watch the Dawson Summer Camps website for updates.
We have no doubt that, when this is over, everyone will be really ready for some summer fun! Thank you for sharing your questions and for being part of Dawson Summer Camps.
