Special Message – COVID-19

Our Response to COVID-19

Hello Camp Families!

We wanted to keep you updated about our plans for Summer 2021. This past year has been very difficult for everyone, including us here at Camp Piankatank, which means we all need camp now more than ever! We will continue to give more details about what our specific protocols will look like as we get closer to the summer, but know that we consider the safety and well-being of our staff and campers to be of utmost importance.

I’m sure the main question on everyone’s mind is will we have camp in 2021?

We plan on it! As of right now, Virginia is still in Phase III of the reopening plan, which means that overnight camps cannot operate. However, we are optimistic that by the time summer rolls around, we will be able to open camp. Just as we did last summer, we are able to operate day camps, because we have been through the process with the Department of Social Services to operate a day care center.

Please check back often for more updates and policies that we will be releasing in the coming weeks. Follow us on social media, and sign up for our e-mails so that you can get the most up-to-date information as soon as it becomes available.

More than ever, we want to see you all this summer! We love our campers and their families, and your health and safety is always one of our top priorities. We are not, and will not take that responsibility lightly. If we are allowed and we believe we can safely operate, then we want to have you all here. We have always believed that kids need camp, and we believe in the mission of camp. I believe that this year, more than ever, we all need camp.

Until we see each other again, stay healthy and stay safe. If there’s nothing else you remember, remember that we love you, and most importantly that God loves you, and that’s why we are here.

In His Service,



Steve Gourley, Director
