Camp Kanuga’s Approach to COVID-19

Summer 2021

In 2020, Camp Kanuga—like hundreds of other summer camps—was not open due to complexities surrounding the pandemic. Now, with guidance from the American Camp Association (ACA), CDC, NC Youth Camp Association, and local health authorities, camp leadership feels prepared to open safely with a full experience for campers and staff.

As we look ahead to summer 2021, it’s impossible to know what the world will look like on June 5, 2021 when we open our first session. Having talked with fellow camps that successfully operated safely last summer, we do know that we are ready for the challenges 2021 will bring.

Summer 2021 will look different than previous years. We anticipate that camp will operate in a “bubble,” and that with reliable testing, we’ll return to a more “normal” Camp Kanuga experience, with a safe and substantive summer camp program.

Please be aware that session enrollment will be limited in order to align with ACA and other guidance. We want every enrolled camper to feel confident we have a space for them in case capacity needs to be further reduced. Any alterations to our plans and protocols will be communicated with parents in a timely manner.

Since 1931, Camp Kanuga campers have benefitted from the lifelong friendships, new experiences and adventures, and faith development we offer in our inclusive Christian community, which welcomes all faiths and backgrounds.

We can’t wait to see you this summer!
