Camp Sequoyah & Ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic

We will open our summer camp registration to accommodate our pre-pandemic capacity of 100 campers per week. Campers will start the day altogether and then be divided into smaller groups for activity rotations and lunch/snacks. Groups will be determined by age. All activities are subject to change based on weather and staff availability.

At this time masks will not be required inside, but this could change as we approach the colder months. If at any point Fayetteville or NWA is considered a high transmission zone OR if there is a positive result/exposure during camp, we reserve the right to immediately reinstate mask use for all campers and staff.
