Dear Summer Campers, Families and Partners,
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the uncertainties it presents for group gatherings, St. Olaf has elected not to host programming, summer camps, events, or conferences during June, July, and August 2021.
This was a very difficult decision as we carefully assessed the risks and weighed them with the benefits of different summer scenarios. Certainly the availability of vaccines was considered as a reason to host a smaller version of summer offerings, but the COVID-19 virus’ continuing presence in Rice County and across the state continues to reflect a risk to our staff, students, faculty and guests. We have made this decision with the welfare and safety of all at the forefront of our considerations.
We appreciate your partnership, interest and support of St. Olaf and we truly look forward to having the pandemic behind us and to welcoming camps, conferences and events to the St. Olaf campus in 2022.
