Hey, Camp Fans.
In these trying times for our nation and everyone who lives here, folks from all over have been compelled to close their doors even into the summer season in order to take the precautions deemed necessary to keep everyone safe. We never saw this coming in the late winter and early spring when whispers of something called coronavirus were still fresh. Unfortunately, this summer season has seen a good amount of camp closures and, along with them, a lot of glum faces.
Just like all of you, everyone here at Everything Summer Camp is deeply saddened that there are so many camps closing their doors for the 2020 season and that so many campers don’t get to have their summer camp experience this season. While some of you may still be able to attend your camp, others won’t be getting their summer camp stay for this season.
To those of you who won’t be attending camp this year, know that you’re not alone. Today, we’re featuring one of the many summer camps who aren’t having their normal camp season this summer—Walton’s Grizzly Lodge. Here’s the message from their website:
“We have made the difficult decision to cancel our summer camp sessions for 2020. We are grateful for the outpouring of support from our campers, families and staff as we worked and hoped for a different outcome. 2020 marks our 95th season; 95 years of providing children a safe and special place to be kids and to belong to a community that sings, laughs, and plays together. We will be back in 2021 and can't wait to welcome you and celebrate a summer that is sure to be filled with joy as we reunite at camp.
We appreciate your support and kindness as we face our first summer without welcoming campers in June. We miss them already. See you in 2021. It's going to be epic!”

We hope all you campers who had planned on a summer stay at Walton’s are still able to get out into the wilderness for your own personal camping experience and, as always, thanks for reading.
