    As of April 15, we have made the difficult and heartbreaking decision to postpone the Youth on the Air Camp until the summer of 2021.

    As word of further restrictions and cancellations became public, the committee decided postponement was the best option given the current status of the COVID-19 pandemic. The safety and well-being of our campers, faculty, staff, and the public is our top priority. A postponement to July, 2020 was also considered.

    The committee is planning for July, 2021 to host the postponed camp. Campers who were accepted to the 2020 camp will have the first chance at registering for the 2021 camp. The daily schedule and plan for the 2020 camp will be the same for the 2021 camp as much as possible apart from the dates. The committee found that July was a more accessible date for the widest range of campers to attend.

    The committee is also looking at ideas for a shortened, virtual camp in the summer of 2020 so that campers can participate in limited activities from home. Details of the online “camp” information will be made available once the plan has been completed.

    While many sponsors and donors have already expressed support for just keeping funds to use in 2021, refunds of donations made to the camp are being offered. Groups or individuals wishing to receive a refund should contact director Neil Rapp, WB9VPG at
