What will camp look like in 2021?
After running an extremely safe and successful summer in 2020, we are confident that Camp Jacobson will be open again for the Summer of 2021. Camps have proven to be able to provide a much needed experience for campers, families and staff and we believe that camps will be allowed to operate next summer. We are planning for many different versions of camp, depending on the regulations and recommendations that are given in the spring. Once we have a better understanding of that information, we will provide updated information to our families.
