Last year the pandemic forced us to make the difficult decision not to open camp. While this year still won't be a full return to normal, we are hard at work planning for an amazing summer in Bristol.
We're doing whatever it takes to get kids back to Camp Crosby! While we don't know exactly what this summer will look like yet, we DO know that children's laughter will once again ring out across Mount Hope Bay!
Reopening Camp Crosby won't be an easy task, with additional hurdles including capacity limits on transportation, additional sanitation measures, and smaller group sizes requiring extra staff and equipment.
Kids spent the past year cooped up inside with limited interactions with friends and little structure to their days. That's why we're so passionate about doing whatever it takes to get children back to camp in Bristol. Children need to have fun being kids, get outdoors, be active, and live health lifestyles.
Not only is camp important to children, but also to their families. Summer can be a challenging time for parents trying to work to make ends meet while giving their children a safe and fun summer break.
With your help memories will once again be made at Camp Crosby this summer! Please consider making a gift today so we can do whatever it takes to help kids, families, and our community gain normalcy and move on from this difficult time. And make certain that we hear children's laughter this summer across Mount Hope Bay!
