For Parents

What You Need To Know 

If your child is planning a future trip to Washington Family Ranch or is here right now, we want you to have the information you need to rest easy while he or she is away. There are many activities at camp in which your child may be participating. Whether they are challenged on the adventure course, playing in the waterfront or spending time in the game room, their safety is our top concern.

For Summer 2021: Campers, volunteers and staff will participate in camp as cohort groups, with masks, distancing and daily screening. Events and meals will be hosted in outdoor spaces with ample distancing or in indoor spaces with increased ventilation and reduced capacity.
