Please check here for our summer 2020 COVID-19 updates.
May 8, 2020: Updated Summer 2020 Plan
It is with a heavy heart that we are announcing Triple C Camp will be suspending operations until further notice. Safety is and will always be the most important thing at camp. We have been in ongoing contact with VA Child Care Licensing, American Camp Association, Dr. Bonds the Health Director at TJHD, and other industry professionals.
We feel it is our duty to support our campers and their families, our staff and our local community by supporting physical distancing and limiting social contact locations. There are many known and too many unknown risks for us to create a safe and acceptable pathway forward at this time. As we continue to partner with your family, we will work to provide updates if they become available.
What will happen to our camp tuition?
As of Friday, June 12 at 5pm:
All finances remaining in family accounts will be credited to future program opportunities (Day Camp, After School, School’s Day Out, Spring Break Camp, etc.). If you have additional questions, please call 434.293.2529 or email [email protected].
From the date of our announcement, May 8 thru June 12:
All finances remaining in family accounts will be credited to future program opportunities (Day Camp, After School, School’s Day Out, Spring Break Camp, etc.). If your family would like to adjust this plan, please submit this form by Friday, June 12 at 5pm. The form will provide options to:
- Credit the $355 deposit, per child to future program opportunities, refund balance paid
- Full refund of camp tuition and nonrefundable deposit
- Divide account balance by crediting a portion of what has been paid and refunding a portion of what has been paid
Refunds will be returned via the same source as received.

What is next from Triple C?
By May 27 we will be in touch with an update about staying connected through the summer.
April 1, 2020
Dear Camp Families,
We know that now more than ever, a summer at camp is going to be vital for kids to feel a sense of normalcy, build friendships and move their bodies. While assessing the stream of COVID-19 information, we continue to move forward with planning for an incredible, safe, fun summer of camp.
The Governor’s Executive Order-55 on Monday, March 30 issued a Stay At Home order “until June 10, unless amended or rescinded by further executive order.” That date falls in our second week of camp. By May 1 we hope to have the next update for families registered for weeks 1 & 2.
This is a unique situation for everyone. We are being as optimistic as possible while taking one day at a time. We will continue to update you as more concrete information becomes available.
We are looking forward to a fun filled summer!
March 7, 2020: Triple C Camp’s normal procedures and how they relate to COVID-19
The safety and health of campers and staff is always the highest priority at Triple C Camp. We have always taken great care to develop and maintain medical practices to address a variety of communicable diseases. We believe in being proactive. Every summer we are diligent with camper hygiene education, hand washing, and hydration, while implementing fun along with the education, such as “elbows in the dining hall” vs Hi-5’s… as hands have just been washed prior to coming into the dining hall.
We are diligent with camp’s cleanliness and treat surfaces with appropriate hospital grade germicidal disinfectant cleaners regularly and obsessively. Our current product has been verified by the manufacturer with regard to effectiveness against COVID-19.
In addition to our communicable disease plans being in place we are getting daily updates from our local, state and national public health authorities. We work closely with our local health department and child care licensing agency and strive to maintain proactive effective protocols for the identification of any illnesses that we see in our campers. Our staff are trained to do daily health observation assessments for each camper in their group. Camp will update health and wellness screening policies and procedures to reflect the current best practices recommended by public health authorities.
We will be continually monitoring the status of this situation as summer gets closer. We will proactively communicate with our camp families any updates as new information becomes available.
If you have any additional questions please contact 434.293.2529 or [email protected]
