FAACT’s Camp TAG Virtual Summer Program 2021

After many conversations with our Medical Advisory Board, we have decided that Camp TAG will not take place in person in our four locations for 2021 due to COVID-19 and the timeline of many Americans not having access to the vaccine until mid-to-end of Summer to early Fall. Everyone’s health and safety are our first and foremost priority!

BUT, we will be hosting a robust and fun-packed Camp TAG Virtual Summer Program in 2021 and want to stay connected to our families until we can be together again in 2022! If you thought last summer was amazing…wait until you see what we have planned for Summer 2021! You will NOT want to miss out!

Age groups are as follows:

  • 4-6, 7-8, 9-10, and 11-13

We will do our best to group campers with their same friends from whichever Camp TAG location they usually attend. And, we will place new campers in the appropriate groups based on their time zones. 


Schedule

Camp TAG will be a 6-week session consisting of twelve (12), 90-minute Zoom sessions with FAACT staff and teen counselors helping lead the sessions.

6-week Session: June 21 through July 29

  • Each age group will have two (2) sessions per week.
  • Sessions will be held on Monday’s, Tuesday’s, Wednesday’s, and Thursday’s.

During each 90-minute session, we will cover an education activity, a craft, a camp game, and engage in FUN conversations. The campers will learn the Camp TAG song during sessions. Every session will be different.

We will schedule campers during the times that best fit their time zone. For example, EST and CST zones will be the first sessions each day, and the MST and PST zones will be the afternoon sessions each day.
