Summer Camps

As we follow the federal, state, and local regulations in accordance with COVID-19, we are canceling our June and July in-person camps. We have closely followed the recommendations of government officials and the CDC to make decisions based on the health and safety of our campers.

We understand the importance of camp offerings for families as you look for ways to keep your children active and engaged over the summer. While our in-person camps are canceled for June and July, Mercy is offering some alternative camp options for anyone who would like to participate. There will be several virtual minicamp options, all FREE of charge. Some of our camps will be rescheduling an in-person camp for a later date this fall/winter (TBA).

While we are sad to not have our campers in the building this summer, we feel confident that this is best for the safety and health of our campers. Please be patient with us as we work through the restructuring of our July camp options. We will continue to provide you with the most up to date information as we have it.

REFUNDS: We will also be working over the next several weeks to provide refunds for those camps that are now canceled. Those refunds will be put back onto the original form of payment when possible.
