Camp CHOP’s Approach to Summer 2022

In looking toward Summer 2022, there is much we know and much we can’t know yet about how camp will operate.  We are optimistic because of the successful experiences of many residential camps that operated all over the US in 2020 and will operate in 2021.  Through research of those camp preparations and execution along with increased knowledge available on COVID mitigation protocols, our team is diligently working on plans and procedures to operate a safe and substantive summer program for our campers.

As it is every year, the health and safety of our campers and staff are top priority.  We know additional mitigation protocols will need to be in place to best reduce the risk of exposure.

All camp procedures and protocols will be developed using the guidance from the American Camp Association (ACA) Field Guide, as well as State and local health department.

We will continue to update this page and notify our camp community as we have more specific information in the coming months. In the meantime, please contact John Swanwick at john@gdi.org for any questions or concerns.  While we might not have the answer yet for every question, we are happy to talk with you and give our insights.

We understand that decision making at this time with so much uncertainty is difficult and we know Summer 2022 will be more important than ever!  We are looking forward to seeing all of the faces that we missed!

Camp Chop Postponed 2021

Unfortunately, due to State guidelines and the nature of the Camp CHOP program operating primarily indoors with close contact, we are not able to operate the CHOP Program this summer.  Camp Motorsport and AstroCamp (all located at the Camp CHOP facility) will be operating this summer.  Guidelines do allow us to run Camp Motorsport and AstroCamp safely with a few minor accommodations to allow for COVID safety. Registration is open! We look forward to having you join us at Camp CHOP in Summer 2022!
