2020 Summer Camp at Northwest Park

In light of the continuing threat posed by the COVID-19 pandemic and in the interest of protecting the health of campers and camp staff, Chatham County Parks and Recreation has decided to cancel the Summer Day Camp for 2020.  We realize this is disappointing, but given the current status surrounding COVID-19, as well the difficulties and challenges associated with adhering to social distancing protocols in a camp setting, we felt this was the safest decision.
