The administration and medical team at the CMTA are waiting until later in the Spring to make a final decision about Camp Footprint 2021. We will be tracking the progression of Immunization numbers as well as paying close attention to all CDC updates and guidelines. We are looking into everything from an adapted in person Camp Footprint experience to a fully virtual option and everything in between. In the meantime, we are asking all families to register as normal and complete all your online forms to secure your registration. Registered families will receive monthly updates as to the 2021 plan.
