To help support our amazing Camp Pringle community we have compiled a list of resources for kids, teens and adults who are at home affected by school closures and social distancing precautions during the COVID-19 pandemic. If you have suggestions to add to our list please email info@camppringle.com so we can grow our list of resources and support each other. Together we are strong! 

Yours in Camping,

Claire Friedrich
Camp Director
