2020 Summer Sessions Cancelled

This is the announcement we have been dreading. It’s the announcement we hoped would never come—not for what it means to Geneva Glen, but what it means to our campers.

The reality is, our campers start looking forward to next summer the moment their current summer ends. For many, Geneva Glen is the light at the end of a long, hard school year. It’s a long-anticipated reunion with old friends and an opportunity to meet new ones. It’s the same for our staff, where the arrival of campers is the light at the end of an "off-season" filled with planning, preparation, training, and logistics. Our two-week camp sessions are what we all—staff and campers alike, work so hard for.

It is with a heavy heart that we must announce that Geneva Glen will not host any of the planned overnight sessions this summer. That means, in addition to Myths and Magic; American Heritage, Knighthood I, Knighthood II, and our World Friendship sessions are cancelled for summer 2020.

We remain hopeful for the future. We have an amazing camp family, an amazing staff, and a magical camp experience that will be waiting for you in 2021.


Refund Options & Helping Geneva Glen
  • More than ever before, Geneva Glen’s existence depends on the generosity of our community. The decision to issue full refunds—while correct—places Geneva Glen in major financial hardship.
  • We will pursue every available avenue to remain financially solvent, including loans, sale of assets, cost-reduction strategies, and, of course, donations.
  • Our entire Board of Directors are committed to personal donations to help Geneva Glen survive these trying times. We are truly all in this together.
  • Any family opting to withdraw from a summer 2020 program will have the option of donating some or all of their tuition as a tax-deductible gift to Geneva Glen, and any amount is deeply, deeply appreciated.

Refund Options:

  • Full Refund
  • Donate part of your tuition
  • Donate all of your tuition
  • Donate all of your tuition plus an additional contribution

YES! Geneva Glen is a 501(c)(3). We will send you a confirmation letter after a donation is made with info on how to claim this deduction for your 2020 taxes.

Due to the closure of Geneva Glen this summer, we feel it necessary to begin enrollment earlier for the 2021 season. We anticipate enrollment to begin in September and will keep you updated.

We are looking at opportunities to engage with our campers and families. We know camp is such an important part of our campers’ lives, we will do our best to keep GG in their life in some way this summer. Depending on the guidance from the state, we are hoping to have some family retreats, hiking days, and other options available in July and August. Please watch for announcements on our web page and social media towards the end of June.

We have created a new trail pass system that we will be requiring for everyone on our property. We hope to have information out in the next 2-3 weeks regarding this program. Until then, please do not drive up to camp without first contacting one of our staff for permission.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions!
