Statement on Current Health Concerns

Mission Springs has canceled all retreats through June 28; we are currently waiting for guidance from the State of California and Santa Cruz County in regards to when we will be able to be open. We do know that the ability to open is contingent on specific criteria that must be met:

  1. No bans on large group gatherings.
  2. No travel restrictions are in place.
  3. Medical experts determine it is reasonable to gather together in camp settings.

In addition to the above criteria, we are also evaluating and adding to our already significant health and safety protocols to provide the safest environment possible for our guests. 

Frontier Ranch Reimagined & Day Camps

We are announcing the launch of our week-long Frontier Ranch Reimagined Day Camps for Santa Cruz County Residents starting June 29.

The program will consist of a week-long (Mon – Fri) day camp for 3rd-8th grade Santa Cruz County families with one working parent.

The base cost for this program will be $465 and would offer three one-week sessions from June 29 – July 17. Once those weeks are full, we will open the second session of week-long sessions from July 20 – August 14 will open up.

If you cannot make the first session and would like to wait for the second session to open, please register through our standard registration process, select the week you wish to attend, and you will be added to a waitlist.

We will be able to accommodate 80 campers per week, which is much lower than our typical summer occupancy, but this will allow for proper social distancing practices.

Covenant Family Camp Reimagined

Family Camp registrations have also been canceled, and we are in the process of creating new at-home programming. We will also be modifying some of our 4th of July traditions to allow for proper social distancing. Information on what we are planning can be found here.

If you have further questions, please feel free to contact the staff member you are working with via email, as this is the best way to communicate right now with the “Shelter in Place Order.”  You can find their emails on our Staff Page.  Or if you are unsure, here is our general mailbox:  Please be patient in the response time, as the closure has impacted staffing.
