cancelled: 2020 summer camps

COVID-19 Response Graphicdue to the uncertainty related to covid-19 and limited guidance from health and state officials regarding children’s activities, davidson county community college will not offer summer camps as previously scheduled.  we remain committed to the health and safety of camp participants and their families. while we regret not being able to provide summer camp experiences, we believe that the decision to suspend camp activities is in the best interest of our camp participants, their families, and our staff. 

we look forward to providing educational and fun experiences in the form of camps in the future.  if you have questions about summer camps, please contact anna hinkle at anna_hinkle@davidsonccc.edu or 336-249-8186, ext. 6474.
