Girls will be able to foster their individuality and grow as independent thinkers as they explore the mystery and wonder of the great outdoors. Girls will be mentored as they experience a blend of traditions and modern camping skills with activities such as sports and games, exploring nature, learning to cook on an open fire and hike the trails girls can discover themselves in the great outdoors. No swimming is available at Camp Merrie-Wood.
All girls are welcome!
Bus service will not be offered for the summer of 2020.
- Camp hours are Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
- Before and after-camp care: Is not available for 2020.
- Overnights: There are no overnights for 2020.
- Drop off and Pick up: We will stager the drop off and pick up times when you at camp. Look for your times in the information we will email you prior to your start date at camp.
Check in: As parents enter the camp parking lot at their assigned time slots, we ask that you remain in your vehicle until a staff member completes a personal health evaluation for each camper. Parents will not be allowed to park and exit the vehicle during drop off or pick up as to maintain social distancing and mitigate exposure. Each camper and staff member will be required to have a health screening (looking for symptoms or exposure) and temperature check by camp staff wearing appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE). Any camper or staff member with a temperature greater than 100.4 degrees will not be allowed at camp until cleared by a medical professional or a negative test result. We ask that parents stay in their vehicles at drop off and pick up in order to maintain social distancing and mitigate exposure. This will also aid in keeping the line moving as quickly as possible. To avoid delays, there will be staggered drop off and pick up times for each family. Staff will be responsible for checking campers in and out daily rather than parents as in previous years. This will minimize contact with pens and clipboards. Campers would be required to thoroughly disinfect hands prior to meeting up with their fellow campers and frequently throughout the day. Sanitizer, soap, and water will be available around camp
