Camp Cedar Springs

2020 Camp Cedar Springs has been Canceled

With the challenging health crisis we are facing, this year’s fifth grade Outdoor Educational Overnight Experience at Camp Cedar Springs has been canceled. Camp is a highlight for our fifth grade students, who look forward to climbing the rock wall, building shelter and singing around the campfire. However, this decision was necessary for the health and safety of all students, staff, and community members.

Possible alternatives are being examined for a modified camp experience for students  based on when we are able to return to our regular school day. If these alternatives become viable we will share more details.

Families who have already paid for camp will be refunded in the coming days. There is no action required to initiate the refund. Payments made by credit/debit card will be refunded directly to the card account. Payments made by check or cash will be refunded by check mailed from the Northshore School District. This process may take a little longer as it is dependent on available staff in the office. Your school's office manager and the District’s accounting staff will work as quickly as possible to process refunds districtwide. If you have any questions please call your school’s main office.

We appreciate your understanding and support during this time.

Adult Group Leaders

Each camp session is staffed with a limited number of volunteer parent/adult group leaders.
