CampVandy 2020 COVID-19 Updates

  • As of April 2, 2020 CampVandy is still scheduled for Summer 2020.
  • At this time, we are watching the situation with COVID-19 closely to determine how this will impact CampVandy. We rely heavily on the advice of our University, the CDC, and local officials. Additionally, we are monitoring the schedule for the Metro Nashville school systems to help guide us in our decisions.
  • We will continue to monitor the situation and keep our program registrants up-to-date on decisions made. We are dedicated to the safety of all campers and staff and will be taking this into consideration as we move forward with our summer planning.
  • Refunds and Cancellations: We hope that CampVandy continues as usual for the summer; however, the pandemic situation continues to evolve. If it is determined that we must cancel CampVandy, you will receive a full refund within 90 days.


We are now hiring counselors for CampVandy 2020!
