Englishton Park's Response to COVID-19

The health and safety of campers and staff at Englishton Park is and always will be our number one priority.

 

All of our decisions and changes to our camp schedule and structure is based on guidance from the Indiana State Governor, the Center for Disease Control, and the American Camping Association and will continue to do so. 

An overview of our health and safety procedures is listed to the right and the full plan is linked down below.

During these challenging time, we believe that children more than ever need a safe and positive camp experience that Englishton Park has provided for 51 straight summers.
