COVID-19

RAW Camp is committed to providing a safe place for our children and our community. We plan to follow local and national guidance and will look to the Ohio Department of Health, Center for Disease Control, and American Camp Association for guidance. Because this is an ever changing landscape based on local case rates, new variants, and other factors, we will update our policy as needed. View the current policy for summer 2022 here.
