To the Camp Daggett Community,
Since 1925, Camp Daggett has prided itself on providing quality character-building experiences in a safe and fun environment. Considering the situation currently facing our state, nation, and world, we will not be able to serve our mission this summer to the standards you have come to expect. It is with camper, staff, and community safety in mind that the Camp Daggett Board of Trustees has decided to cancel all summer 2020 camping sessions. Please know that this decision was not arrived at lightly, the entire staff and board feel that current guidance on social distancing, mass gatherings, and personal protective equipment would not allow us to deliver high quality programming for this summer.
The Board of trustees has established a FULL REFUND POLICY during these difficult times.
Camp Daggett is committed to our families and understand the heartbreak that comes with the cancellation of the camping season. To that end, we want to extend several options as we look forward to the 2021 camping season:
If you would like to apply your deposit and any balance paid to the summer of 2021: No action is required on your part. We will reserve your spot for next summer, keeping you in the same session. Requests for session changes cannot be made at this time. A reminder email will be sent in the fall. We will send an application in January to all 2020 registered and waitlisted campers to complete. Deposits for waitlisted campers will be shredded and credit cards will not be charged.
We understand how difficult it will be to not have a camping season this summer, and this is certainly true for our 14-year-old campers who may have been looking forward to their final year at Camp Daggett. Automatic refunds will be issued for all registered 14- and 15-year-old campers. Wilderness Adventure Trips will be available for 13 to 15-year old campers in 2021. The Camp Daggett staff is also exploring additional opportunities for these 14-year-old campers. Applications for Camp Aides will be made available later this summer.
If you would like a full refund of all deposits and balances paid at this time: Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your campers name(s) in the subject line. This will not reserve you a spot in the 2021 camping season. Expect to receive a refund within 2-4 weeks of contacting camp.
If you would like to convert all or part of your balance paid to a donation: Donations made to Camp Daggett are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. If you would like to help support Camp Daggett through these challenging times, please email email@example.com . Know that your donation will allow camp to continue to thrive as it has for the past 95 years.
While we are sure there are still many questions, we wanted to make sure we could provide our families with information as soon as possible. Please continue to monitor our website and Facebook page for new information and updates. We will be updating our Frequently Asked Questions on the website as needed.
In the Spirit of Daggett,
The Camp Daggett Staff and Board of Trustees
