For 2021, Camp 42 will offer 2 camp sessions. Neither will be a traditional session due to the lack of vaccine availability for campers of all ages, but each will be crafted with the same mission-driven passion that is the foundation of all of our regular weeks of camp. While we are sad that circumstances do not allow us to safely offer camp to campers of all ages, we are excited about what we are able to offer.
We will offer a virtual camp July 18-23 for ages 7-17 years. We are still working out what this will look like, but it will likely include supplies delivered to be used throughout the week during activities and games conducted via zoom. Register for this event using the button above or below.
Overnight Residential Camp
We will hold ONE in-person week of camp July 18-24. This session will be limited to campers 12-19 years old, and it will take place at our South Carolina location at Camp Long in Aiken.
We would love to have eligible campers from our Florida and Natchez Trace locations attend this location. We understand that the drive is longer and don’t want that to be the obstacle to getting your camper to camp, so we will try to work with you to develop a transportation plan.
We had originally limited this session to 16 years and older because that was the youngest projected approved age for a COVID vaccine. However, now that the Pfizer vaccine is now available for 12-15 year olds, we are now accepting registrations for campers ages 12 years old and up. We have increased the age to 19 years old to allow those campers who missed what would have been their last year due to 2020’s cancellation to have a do-over as well as to give those who would have been first-year staffers one last week of camp free from supervisory expectations.
Teens who are 18 and 19yo have the option this year to attend as LTs or as staff. If they choose to attend as LTs, they will have the same experience as their 16 and 17yo counterparts, and the cost is $300. If they choose to attend as staff, they will have the responsibilities of being on staff, and while all staff are volunteers and receive no compensation, there is no cost to attend, either.
Campers must be the given age by the start of the camp session.
ALL participants – campers, LTs, staff – MUST be fully vaccinated by the start of camp. This means they must have received the second (or first, in the case of Johnson and Johnson) shot at least 2 weeks before the start of camp.
Like the non-traditional age range for this session, the programming will also be non-traditional. Campers will have all the fun (and supervision) of a regular camp session, but they’ll also participate in staff training and 2022 program development alongside older staff members. They’ll also have the opportunity to take a hands-on role in conducting the virtual camp session.
For 12 through 17yos, the cost is $600 with a $100 non-refundable deposit due upon registration.
The registration fee for 18 and 19 yo LT participants is $300, with a $50 non-refundable deposit due upon registration. 18 and 19 yo LTs who have never attendend a Camp 42 session before have a $100 non-refundable deposit due upon registration.
The registration deadline is June 11, 2021. After that, registrations are not guaranteed to be accepted.
Financial aid will be available. All families will be contacted within 2 weeks of registration by our camp leadership team to discuss plans regarding COVID and to answer any questions parents may have.
