Campers participate in traditional camp activities such as swimming, fishing, boating, arts & crafts, target sports, music and horseback riding. Camp provides an experience of outdoor life for kids whose health issues make these activities often seem impossible, giving them the chance to develop independence and confidence.
We are so excited to welcome you to Timber Pointe Outdoor Center for the summer of 2021! Maintaining the health and safety of our campers, families, staff and volunteers has always been a priority to us at Timber Pointe, and guided the decisions and policies that led to a safe operation this past summer (to get an idea of what policies/procedures we implemented last summer, check out our 2020 Family and Camper Handbook. We are confident that our plans and protocols will allow us to offer another healthy and exciting summer full of camp adventures in 2021!
Our planning will take on many adjustments as updated information becomes available to us over the next few months. We will communicate regularly with our camp family as new information emerges. With that said, here is what we are already doing to prepare for a safe and successful summer:
Working closely with the American Camp Association, the CDC, the IDPH and local health department to ensure we are up-to-date on the most recent developments and communication regarding safe operation
Expanding and/or revising policies based on the recently updated Field Guide for Camps to implement specific recommendations provided by the CDC in relation to risk reduction at camps
There are many questions we cannot answer yet, but know one thing for sure—we need camp now more than ever before. Camp creates healthy connection, outdoor adventure, and physical recreation…things we’ve all been missing greatly! We can’t wait to provide a magical summer for all of our guests.
Look out for an update in the coming weeks on what we hope to offer this summer!
We partner with organizations that serve our mission of providing a camp experience for kids and adults that have challenging illnesses or disabilities. Timber Pointe and our partners provide memories that will last a lifetime. For some it's more than camp, it's home.
