With these still unpredictable times, Calumet has begun to make plans for how Resident Camp will function in the summer of 2022. We are taking into account all of the great lessons learned during 2021 -- and 2022 will, no doubt, be the best summer Calumet has ever had.
Calumet relies on the State of New Hampshire and American Camp Association overnight camp guidelines, on discussions with other camp directors, and on shared ideas over Zoom from overnight camps across the country. Given that COVID information continues to change on a regular basis, Calumet recognizes that our plans for Resident Camp for Kids will likely be constantly shifting and require nimbleness.
We are certain that our careful planning for 2022 will bring about a fantastic summer camp experience!
Among the things we've been working on with more diligence in recent years is living out our commitment that all kids -- every single one -- will be safe and welcome here. In particular, we've identified a number of ways we can be better at sending that message to those who identify as LGBTQ. Take a closer look at what we've been up to by clicking the "Every. Single. One." button.
Calumet is the best summer camp in the world -- and there are thousands of former campers who whole-heartedly agree! For over 60 summers, kids from age 8 to 18 have been coming to Calumet to have the time of their lives. This is a place where life-long friendships are formed and nurtured, and God's love is embraced and shared. For everyone who signs up, we promise a safe, fun, faith-building time that you will never forget!
