To our Guests:

For the last 101 years, SAMBICA has been committed to the health and safety of all campers, guests, and staff members.  This document summarizes the steps SAMBICA is taking to maintain this commitment in light of the COVID-19 outbreak. 

 

SAMBICA now more than ever? Camp gives children, adults, and families a place to unplug, build healthy relationships, explore their strengths, and learn through PLAY…all in a safe, uplifting environment. 

 

Our goal for SAMBICA in this season is for all guests and participants to experience how much God loves them, while in a safe and healthy environment! 

 

With utmost concern for the well-being of our campers and staff, we are diligently following the guidance of the CDC and local health authorities to minimize health risks in our planning. We are committed to provide a safe and nurturing environment to learn, grow, and make life-long memories filled with hope during this unique time of history.
