Frequently asked questions
WHAT ABOUT SUMMER CAMPS?
We do plan to run camps. Here are the current details. We think we can run camps in late June or certainly by July. We'll post an update on our camps webpage once we have the official OK to open camp registration. Keep in mind that we are regulated by both the City of Chattanooga and the Hamilton County Health Department. We will follow all local and federal guidelines for providing a safe camp experience.
