As temperatures soar to the mid-90s, Frederick finds ways to beat the heat

"In Adamstown, kids attending summer camps hosted by the Claggett Center pack fans to keep cool during their nighttime slumber inside of a 1920s brick building that doesn’t have air conditioning. Despite the hot weather, though, the fun continued on Monday, as kids flew down a zip line at the camp, which sits next to the Monocacy River and Sugarloaf Mountain.

The Claggett Center has taken lots of steps to keep campers safe from the heat, co-executive director Lisa Ryder said. Activities are interspersed with plenty of water breaks and each group of campers has access to a climate-controlled space to get out of the sun. The Monocacy River has also come in handy to deal with the heat, Ryder said.

“We’re really taking advantage of water activities, whether it’s creek hikes, canoeing, kayaking, even just river floats where we have the ability to really maximize natural play in the water,” Ryder said."

Cookie Flores was not a happy dog Monday afternoon.

JUST ANNOUNCED: Special Challenge Camp Summer Picnic!

Campers are invited for a day filled with camp fun: a picnic with games, arts and crafts, campfire, music, and more! We can't wait to gather again with camp friends old and new at Claggett this summer.

Special Challenge Camp has been a core part of Claggett's summer for over 40 years, serving adults 21+ with developmental disabilities. This year's picnic is designed to continue to be COVID-conscious, as it becomes safer to gather this summer. Masks and social distancing will be required--we are looking forward to a return to an overnight camp in 2022!

You can register online at the link in the comments. Returning campers will also receive a registration form by mail.

Wonderful transformation retreat this weekend!!!
While it is sad there will be no opportunities for the dynamic summer camp activities for the youth, it is for the protection of the children and staff. Social distancing would have been impossible. Staying safe till the virus hopefully diminishes is the ultimate goal, Our children are tomorrow's hope and future for this country. Pray for them and pray for those affected by the virus.
