Day Camps

Pennsylvania has guidance for Day Camps to operate safely. You can find that guidance here.

Resident Camps

Pennsylvania has guidance for Overnight (Resident) Camps. However, those camps may not operate until counties reach the Green phase. You can read the guidance Pennsylvania requires here. Camps need guidance and support from the state for 2021 now. Encourage your legislators to support camps. 

Help camps by taking action!

Here's what you can do to help Pennsylvania camps:

1. Find your representatives. You can find your representative by putting your address into the form at this link.

2. Write your representative a letter or an email. If you aren't sure what to say, we've provided some templates for you to use. Just go to the links and copy the text. Then paste it into a word processor. The parts in red need to be personalized so that you can tell YOUR story. Then print it out and send it (or email it!) using the information in the contact form above!
