COVID claims another year of Camp Mather

The coronavirus has claimed a second consecutive year at Camp Mather, a family summer camp owned by the city. The camp, which serves about 500 campers and 70 employees a week when open, features shared bathrooms, meals, and social activities, making social distancing nearly impossible. “The health of our campers and staff are the most important consideration,” said Recreation and Park Department General Manager Phil Ginsburg. “The Covid-19 transmission risk simply remains too high.”
