Camp Masala and COVID-19

The Board of Directors of Camp Masala is taking the threat of COVID-19 seriously. Below are the steps we are taking:

First, we are monitoring the situation and we will follow CDC recommendations. 

Second, Camp Masala 2020 is too far away to determine if COVID-19 will affect our camp weekend.

Third, if you are traveling by plane, some airlines are waving cancellation fees. Here’s a link to an article about that:

Fourth, we will keep this website updated as decisions are made regarding the safety of our campers and staff.

Fifth, this article does a nice job of explaining Minnesota's approach to the coronavirus.

Finally, we will wave our camp cancellation fees if you must cancel because of COVID-19, or if we must cancel Camp. So, please, if you haven't yet, go ahead and register for Camp Masala 2020. We have a lot of fun and educational activities lined up for you!

Here are the recommendations from the CDC.

What is Camp Masala?

Camp Masala is a weekend camp for children and adults of South Asian heritage and their families. Our goal is to facilitate campers' education about South Asian culture in a fun environment. Your children will be surrounded by other children who look like them and other families who are built like theirs. The experience of being ‘in the majority’ is invaluable. Adult adoptees will have opportunities to connect with others whose experience mirrors theirs and celebrate their birth culture.

Each year, parents tell us they are amazed at how much their children learn, and how much the camp experience increases their self esteem. Individuals and families alike will leave Camp Masala with a new appreciation for the incredible diversity of South Asia.

Please join us for a special weekend at Camp Masala. We look forward to meeting you and celebrating South Asia!
