COVID UPDATES

Dear Camp Weaver Families, 

As we continue to navigate through the COVID-19 outbreak, we understand this is a very challenging situation for all our families – especially our children. Please click here for a guide on how to talk to children about the pandemic.

As we approach summer, children will need the Camp Weaver experience more than ever. 

In order to better support you, our Camp families, we have created this page with Frequently Asked Questions. These will be regularly updated as we learn more.

Please reach out to our office if you have any questions. 336-697-0525
