Energy Camp @ Virtual
Jul 20 – Jul 24 all-day

ReThink Energy will be hosting Energy Camp starting July 20th-24th.
This year, we’ll hold one week of camp, July 20-24, offering a virtual option and an in-person option if possible. We will make the call as to whether it is just virtual or offering both by July 6, based on not just a flattened curve, but a significantly sloped downward curve. If we offer both, parents will have the option to choose virtual or in-person by July 9.
Supplies will be shipped to the youth in virtual camp, the week before camp. This is a donation-based Summer Camp.
