Vaccines and accurate testing may mean Camp Akita 2021 will look more "normal" than we expect. For now, we anticipate that Camp Akita 2021 will look differently than summers past. Our team is leaning on health experts, the American Camp Association and other camps that held on-site sessions in 2020 with no confirmed cases of COVID-19.

This graphic illustrates how we plan to adapt our programs, care for our campers, and still have fun! Click on the graphic below to view the full image.
