Our current response to Coronavirus concerns
Camp Magruder continues to adhere to current state stay-in-shelter announcements, and will not be hosting groups until they have been lifted at the earliest. The camp continues to work with groups who are booked in the coming months to work through alternate plans. We are also brainstorming protocols for social distancing and cautious retreat activity should we begin welcoming groups again.
Summer Camp session at Camp Magruder have not been canceled as we await state recommendations and developments across the country. We will not be hosting our Memorial Day Family Camp, but are still considering the possibilities of hosting later scheduled camps and retreats in the summer. We will make announcements as the situation evolves.
Thanks to a small business stimulus loan, Camp Magruder's staff has returned to work at 3/4 time. We are working to maintain the camp and make many contingency plans to best be ready for whatever lies in the future. The loan will last until mid-June.
