Camp Big Red 2020 Cancelled - See you in 2021!

Urgent Program Update - Camp Big Red 2020 Cancelled

To mitigate the risks associated with the potential spread of COVID-19, we unfortunately will not be able to host Camp Big Red for the summer of 2020.  While this is not the result that any of us hoped for, we feel it necessary as we continue to focus on the health and safety of our participants and our staff.  We hope that you will come back to join us for Camp Big Red next year in 2021 and can't wait to see you.



Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. Enrollment is limited to the first 70 campers per session.  If a session is full, we will place any interested campers on a first-come, first-served waiting list.
