Statement on COVID-19

June 24, 2020

ANNOUNCEMENT:  Due to COVID-19 related health concerns and restrictions, we have made the very difficult decision to transform our one-week, in-person Camp session to 2 weeks of Virtual Camp programming. This decision is heartbreaking for all of us, but it is the only decision that protects the physical and emotional safety of the children and volunteers.  

Two weeks of Virtual Camp Week programming for 80-100 campers, ages 5-17, will be held the weeks of August 10-14 and August 17-21.  Sessions will be facilitated by Camp Dreamcatcher staff, counselors, health center volunteers, Village Chiefs, Therapists, Yoga/mindfulness instructors, meditation instructors, educators, program specialists and community members.

A Foundation has awarded a grant to purchase 31 Inspiron laptops for children who will need them for the camp sessions.  Another local company donated sixteen IPHONE 6’s to assist with our efforts to enable campers to join the virtual programming.  Camp Packages will be delivered or shipped to each camper prior to their session.  The packages will include backpacks, BOMBAS SOCKS, water bottles, Camp Dreamcatcher t-shirts & masks, snacks, blankets, special gifts, and device & headphones if needed.
