Fircreek Day Camp has been closely monitoring the evolving outbreak of COVID-19 in the United States and will continue to take guidance from the CDC and the Whatcom County Health Department. We are taking measures to prepare for camp with great care and are confident that our procedures along with our incredible staff will once again create an amazing experience for your child this summer. Below is a list of steps we are taking to ensure the safety of your children at Fircreek and if you have specific questions regarding COVID-19, please don’t hesitate to call us.

      • Fever
      • Cough
      • Shortness of Breath
