Is Hawkeye open for Summer 2021?

YES. We will have camp in summer 2021. Currently, we plan on a full slate of camper, CiT, and JC sessions. Hawkeye leadership has been working on planning and creating necessary accommodations for a safe and fun summer in a world where COVID-19 remains a worry. With the help and buy-in of staff, families and campers we can run our program safely.

What is camp doing to prepare for the 2021 session?

Our leadership team is currently working on our reopening plan. COVID-19 guidelines as provided by the CDC, State of NH, and American Camp Association are informing modifications throughout both physical campus and program. Some information we can share with you currently is:

  • Modification of cabin group limits – cabins will be limited to eight (8) campers and two (2) staff
  • Opening of two (2) additional cabins in each cabin area
  • Maximizing ventilation in cabins
  • Modification of two-week session offerings limited to Sessions I & III in order to limit transitions in and out of the “camp bubble”
  • Adapting our dining hall and food service processes
  • Adaptation of Health Center check-in and clinic processes, as well as, addition of daily temperature and symptom check of every community member
  • Reorganization and upgrade of the physical space of the Health Center and designation of two additional buildings to be used as isolation areas
  • Modifying our drop-off and pick-up procedures
  • Redesigning camp/group gatherings
  • Restructuring programming
There are multiple sources of information, guidance, regulation and COVID data that are informing our process. These include, but are not limited to:

What is the cancellation policy for the 2021 season?

Our CANCELLATION POLICY has been updated to reflect current realities.

  • All cancellations must be in writing and submitted to jess@camphawkeye.com. If you feel unable to attend camp we ask that you observe the dates listed below as part of your decision-making process.
  • Before January 1st, 100% of tuition is refundable, including non-refundable deposit.
  • After January 1st, deposit is non-refundable.
  • After April 1st, 50% of tuition is non-refundable.
  • After June 1st 100% of tuition is non-refundable

    • Choose to gift tuition paid to Camp Hawkeye
    • Choose to transfer tuition paid to a camp session in 2022
    • Choose to refund tuition paid

Did Camp Hawkeye issue refunds for summer 2020?

Yes. We offered the options listed previously and accepted generous gifts to help with ongoing operations from some families, rolled over camper tuition for other families, and refunded partial or full tuition paid for remaining families.

How can I help?

Thank you for asking about how you can support the Hawkeye community. We acknowledge that our return in 2021 will require us to adapt. This means additional program costs & materials as well as physical infrastructure work on campus. If you would like to support our efforts through a gift, please send a check directly to our Winter Office. Thank you so much!

What will happen to participants who missed their CiT and/or JC session in 2020?

We are committed to providing opportunities (for all those participants that missed out on their program last summer) in that same program in 2021. For example, those that would have been CiT’s in 2020 will be able to do so in 2021. Some of those participants could then move on through the JC experience in the second half of 2021, keeping them on track for Staff Eligibility in 2022. Others will be able to return for their JC experience in 2022, with staff eligibility in 2023.

What will camp look like in 2021?

Camp will look both different and the same in 2021. We are planning our program based on requirements and guidelines which will likely continue to evolve and change as the COVID situation evolves and changes. As regulatory and public health information changes, so will our program, personnel and site accommodations.

With limited group sizes and additional cabins utilized, the program will run with as many as ten (10) cabin groups up from six (6) in 2019 (the camp did not operate in 2020). Cabins will be treated as independent cohorts for the first two weeks of both the first and second half of the summer. Additionally:

  • Staff Training will be expanded to a full 14 days to accommodate on site quarantine in advance of camper and CiT arrival
  • When not in cabin cohorts or when social distance is not possible everyone in camp will be wearing masks
  • Socially distanced cohort dining
  • Adjustments to All-Camp special activities
  • Adjustments to regular program activities
  • Limited off-site trip offerings
  • Adjusted arrival and departure procedures including 1 adult/1 camper limit
We will continue to update information as we have it and if you or your camper have any questions about specific things and how they may look different this summer, please reach out to Jess directly and we will share what we know at that time. We appreciate everyone's understanding and flexibility surrounding these necessary adjustments.
