TOM ROSENBERG: We need to work together this summer to provide our kids with the best summer ever. It’s going to be so much joy, so much happiness, so much friendship, and learning happening at camp.

JOHN NELSON: They have the same bunkrooms, that’s where they can take their mask off at night, or when they’re sitting down at meals at their table, they can take their mask off to eat.
