Summer Camp Guide-Updated with Safety Protocols | Ridgefield Moms

Summer is right around the corner and although things are running different from years past, many summer camps are still opening! We put together our 2nd annual Summer Camp Guide prior to the outbreak of Covid-19 and have since worked with our local camps to keep you updated with current offerings. However your Summer plans turn out, we hope it is a season filled with lots of memories and sunshine!
