Generally, students will not be allowed to attend both the Stone Temple and Rock N’ Roller co-ed camps. Contact Rich at firstname.lastname@example.org after registering your student for the Granite Ridge Camp and either the Rock N’ Roller or Stone Temple camps (one of these last two camps) if they wish to attend all three camps. We will contact you with our decision concerning your student’s registration for the third coed camp.
The Covid-19 epidemic continues to be a fluctuating situation and we will update our Covid policy as warranted.
Our primary concern is for the safety and welfare of all camp attendees. Our Covid policy and any updates have been and will continue to be made in coordination with members of the medical community and comply with Wyoming and CDC requirements. We are encouraging all camp attendees (adult volunteers and students) to be vaccinated for Covid. If you are vaccinated, you will be required to provide proof of vaccination to complete check-in, or if you are not vaccinated you will be required to provide a negative test result within 72 hours of attending the camp. Please understand Covid is a constantly changing situation and flexibility will be key for all planning.
As noted, we are trying very hard to keep the camps and plans on schedule. If you’re interested in signing up for any of the camps, you are encouraged to follow the registration instructions and register for all camps you are interested in attending. If you have comments during the registration process, please utilize that section of the form.
Please do not hesitate to reach out with any information, questions, or concerns.
Thanks for understanding.
