The Board would like to thank you for your patience and support as we continue to navigate unprecedented times during this evolving public health matter that has brought about many changes and uncertainty within a matter of a week. We realize how the membership and their families value the connection they have with the Finn Camp. There is simply no other place like it for enjoyment, wellness, and sense of community.
In the best interest of all our members and families, the Board has decided to temporarily close all DFCSCA facilities due to this public health crisis our community, state and country is currently dealing with. This closure is in effect Monday, March 22 through Monday, April 13. The board will review this temporary closure on April 5th, as this unprecedented public health crisis unfolds.
We value the safety and well-being of all of our members and their families, which is why we are taking these unprecedented steps to help keep everyone safe. We appreciate your understanding and hope we will be back to normal operations in the very near future. We hope you and yours stay healthy and safe during this public health crisis. Take care and be well,
