Dear Takoma Sportscamps Families,

I hope to run camp this summer, but I will not know until early February if it will be possible. Please check back with us. I hope we can make this work.

If things work out the plan is to use TPMS and run the same schedule we have used in the past.

Right now everything is on hold while I wait to hear from the Office of Community Use of Public Facilities of Montgomery County. Originally I was told everything was approved, but on January 14th they sent me this link saying my application is on hold, and they are not accepting any gym requests at this time due to the rise in Covid cases.
