Frog Camp Safety

Adjustments have been made to our program due to COVID-19 to create as safe an experience as possible for participants and staff. Frog Camp has always relied on a strong small group experience. This year will be no different, students will complete all camp activities with their assigned small group. Students and staff are required to wear a face mask that covers both their nose and mouth while they are on campus, which will be for the entirety of Frog Camp.  Camp activities have been redesigned to remove the need to share any supplies and to accommodate physical distancing. The Frog Camp schedule and all activities have been approved by appropriate university task forces and our staff are receiving training related to all updated safety procedures and policies. More information on our university’s coronavirus response and plan for the fall semester can be found at

Before coming to Frog Camp each day, campers are asked to conduct a daily health assessment to monitor for symptoms of COVID-19.
