Camp Closure Update:
It has been a very long 10 weeks since we entered these uncharted pandemic waters. We have spent the last month growing increasingly frustrated that we haven’t had more information to help us make our decision. After taking all of the recently issued guidelines and regulations into consideration, we have decided that we will have to cancel our Sarsaparilla season for this year.
The cancellation of camp this summer is profoundly disappointing for all of us after what already feels like an eternity of frustration and uncertainty. There are no words that can express how sad we feel to be depriving our children and ourselves of something that has given us such joy and connection.
We will miss all of our campers and their families and are already looking forward to Summer 2021. Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns.
Stay healthy and safe,
Merry Anderson and Dick Steege

The fun begins July 6th 2021
When we reach the top of the drive to camp we know we have entered a different world. For as far as we can see are vistas of mountains, and tiny buildings miles in the distance. We arrived for a day at camp! The beautiful old barns, a huge lawn for games, toys all around, and happy campers greet us.
