Our Summer 2020 Camps
With the realities of COVID-19 this summer, Camp Shai has developed 2 models of camps this summer: Pod Camp (in-person camp) and Virtual Specialty Camps. We are continually following CDC, American Camping Association, and Colorado Department of Health and Human Services guidelines and updating Camp Shai operations as this information is available. Camp Shai’s ability to open this summer depends on the coming guidelines to be issued by Governor Polis surrounding the operations of summer camp.
UPDATE (June 11, 2020): A few spots have opened up and we are now accepting additional applications for Camp Shai’s Pod Camp at this time. Please email Daniel Siegel if you are interested in enrolling.
Upon being permitted to operate this summer, camper registration will be as follows:
Round 1: Campers of essential workers who depend on camp for childcare to work who had already enrolled in Camp Shai (age-eligible siblings are included) for this summer.
Round 2: Campers who were signed up for 4 or more weeks of Camp Shai (age-eligible siblings are included).
To be eligible to attend Camp Shai, to comply with Colorado state licensing, campers must be eligible to attend Kindergarten in the fall.
Why Camp Shai
The camp environment is the perfect place for campers because we take away the academic pressures of the classroom, creating space for campers to explore, grow and learn.
