Camp Independence

Hello Campers and Families,  

We are so grateful to have had an amazing virtual week for the 51st Camp Independence. We are looking forward to being back in person for 52nd Camp Independence 2023 (subject to change).

The most important factor in this decision is the health and wellbeing of our campers, our campers' families, and our staff. Please note all staff and campers who desire to work or attend Camp Independence August 12, 2023, through August 19, 2023, will need to provide proof of being fully COVID-19 vaccinated no latter July 29, 2023 (exemption for medical or religious exemption request for will be reviewed.)
