At Camp Under the Stars, the safety of our campers, volunteers, and camp community will always be our first priority. Unfortunately, we have made the decision to cancel camp for summer 2020.  We look forward to camping with you in the future, as soon as it is safe to do so. Until then, please join us virtually on Facebook and Instagram for camp fun beginning on May 3, 2020.
