How do we handle bad weather?


GSA used to have the policy of never cancelling camp outdoors unless there is inclement weather. In case the decision has to be made to go indoors, we always had a second option. We will not do that this year. IF there are downpours or thunderstorms coming in, we will cancel the day's session.




What do you do when the heat is excessive?


We are very cautious with our campers. We hydrate and take breaks frequently. We will move segments of the camp to the shade. We make whatever adjustments necessary to keep your child safe. It is important the parents do their part and have the kids wear light clothing, make them hydrate before they come, provide water bottles.

Following weeks will be capped at the same ratio as well until further notice.
