Hello PAC Campers and Families,
We sincerely appreciate your patience as we determine our plans for summer 2021. MCT will hold all overnight camp programs, however there will be changes and adjustments like every aspect of life during this pandemic.
We have reserved our campsites and dates but are still working on logistics. To ensure the safety of campers and staff, all PAC must meet local, state, and federal COVID guidelines and procedures. Those guidelines are very likely to change and evolve, so we will need to plan for several contingencies in our approach. For all of us – MCT staff and campers– flexibility will be key. PAC will be different – how different remains to be seen but please know the health and safety of all is our primary concern.
The dates below have been confirmed, and we hope sharing them with you now will help with summer plans. We are delaying registrations until we have more information and a clearer picture of where the pandemic is headed. The vaccine rollout may change things significantly. Meanwhile, MCT continues to observe all safety guidelines, state and local health orders and CDC recommendations while looking forward with hope and optimism.
As soon as we have more details to share and a better idea of how camp will operate in the summer of 2021, PAC registration information and an outline of guidelines and procedures will be emailed to you.
Camp dates are as follows:
East Shore – Sunday, August 1 through Saturday, August 7, 2021.
North Shore – Sunday, August 1 through Sunday, August 15, 2021.
South Shore – Sunday, August 1 through Sunday, August 15, 2021.
Thanks again for your patience, and please reach out with any questions.
