COVID-19 Camp Update:
April 29, 2020
For the health and safety of all who participate in our summer youth programs, St. Olaf will not be hosting face-to-face programs on our campus.
We are committed to keeping you updated on any changes in our plans, policies, or procedures. If you have any questions or concerns you are welcome to contact us at 507.786.3031 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

We hope you and your family are well.
The college has made the decision to cancel all camps, conferences and events scheduled to occur on campus this summer. The impact of the continuing spread of COVID-19 and the need to align tightly with the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guide this decision.
We regret having to make this decision, in particular because we were looking forward to our campers living and learning the Ole experience on campus with us. Nonetheless, the health and safety of our campers, students, employees and visitors are our top priority and, at this time, that means not having events and groups on campus.
We regret that the COVID-19 pandemic necessitates this decision. It is our fervent hope that we will see you at one of our summer programs in the future.
Please accept our best wishes for good health and safety for you and your family.
