While we work to update our summer camp guide with the latest info from local programs, we’ve decided to tell you about individual camps here as they firm up plans for this unprecedented summer.
We just got this info from the Bristol Recreation Department, which says it is committed to providing a safe experience for all campers, parents and staff. Staff will follow all of the guidelines and/or any additional guidelines provided by the State of Vermont or the CDC.
Here is the most recent COVID 19 State Guidance for Summer Programs (revised 5/28/20).
And here is what Bristol Rec is offering this summer:
