Cancellation of In-Person Programming

Due to the impacts of COVID-19 we have come to the difficult decision to cancel the remainder of our 2020 summer camp program. A lot was taken into consideration when making this decision including camper and counselor safety

Even though we will not be having camp in person this year we are excited to announce that we will be hosting a free, virtual alternative to camp! Our dedicated Campus Rec Kids “Virtual” Summer Camp staff has been hard at work preparing ways to still make this summer memorable and engaging. Please take a few minutes to fill out our short survey to help us figure out how to best meet the needs and expectations of you and your campers for this unprecedented program.

If you have further questions on the impact of the cancellation please see the letter below that was sent to all parents who signed up, and feel free to contact us at CampusRecKids@mail.wvu.edu.
