Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to make some very difficult, but necessary, decisions to keep our valued campers, families, and staff healthy and safe. In light of this, Springfield College has made the decision to suspend all summer programming campus wide. We recognize these decisions have a profound impact on all of us, especially you, our camp families.
For the registration and refund process, here are the steps we will be taking in what we hope will be a smooth transition for all:
All registrations will be dropped and 100 percent of all balances will be refunded. It is our goal that all refunds will be credited back to the card you used at the time of registration.
If you are a new camper, you will be considered a returning camper for our 2021 season, and will be eligible to register on the returning camper dates.
If you were the recipient of an award—our Humanics or our Giving Day ones—early bird registration, or a financial discount, those will be honored for the 2021 season.
For 84 years, Camp Massasoit has provided youth with an environment in which to make connections, develop confidence, learn to take risks, and to grow. Knowing that these special moments will not be able to take place this summer is heartbreaking, for both you and us, on so many levels. Camp Massasoit comes to life through the presence of our campers and staff, with laughter echoing through the forest, and through the smiles radiating from our campers' faces. Trust us when we say: We are yearning for this energy to be brought back to our woods.
As we navigate this upcoming summer, it is our hope to stay connected with our families and present some fun challenges that will be a friendly reminder of camp. As we work through the details of what this will look like, we will be sending a follow-up email closer to summertime. In the meantime, please know that you are in our thoughts and hope that you and your families are safe and well.
Striving to maintain a balance between skill development and sheer enjoyment, campers learn about the four areas of respect. The theme of respect is discussed every morning in opening ceremonies and is practiced throughout the camp day by our staff. At Camp Massasoit, we embrace the mission of Springfield College through our focus on education and development of the whole person.
Why Camp Massasoit?
Happy kids, experience in the outdoors, and growth and development of your children are what you can expect from sending them to Camp Massasoit.
