COVID-19 Updates

Status as of May 4, 2020:

After careful deliberation, the Board of Directors made the difficult decision to cancel this summer’s scheduled courses. We feel that there is not a practical way to run our usual program given the risks posed by Covid19.

We are exploring alternative programming for those who are interested. This may consist of small in-person classes modified to accommodate social distancing, at-home science and nature experiences, or interactive online programming. Undoubtedly, none of these will be a full substitute for the real CSS experience, but we believe there may be interest among families in connecting with the School this summer. If we are able to identify feasible alternatives, we will let families know as soon as possible and initiate a separate registration process.

Families who have registered for summer 2020 courses can receive refunds for their payments by  logging in to the CampDoc registration page and submitting a request. We will work to process requests quickly. If you are able to forego a refund, you would be assisting the School in meeting this summer’s fixed expenses, including partial salary support for our teachers. Please write us at if you would like to contribute your tuition payment to the School. Alternatively, after obtaining your refund, you might consider donating a portion to CSS through Paypal.

We are sorry to be delivering such difficult news during this very difficult time, and we share your sense of sadness at losing the CSS experience this summer. We only hope that we can all stay healthy and well until we can be together again.
