Announcement for Summer 2020
Due to continuing health precautions and the need to maintain optimal safety, the Hillside and Clearpool Summer Camp programs will not open this year. We are saddened to know we will not spend our summer with your children. We hope to welcome you back strong and healthy in 2021.
We do plan to offer some camp spirit this summer. Please watch our website and social media for safe, family-friendly activities for all to enjoy.
We’re humbled that some camp families have already inquired about making a donation to support Green Chimneys Summer Camps. Donations can be made online via PayPal
