Camp Independence

Hello campers and families, 

We know everyone is looking forward to Camp Independence...MossRehab has done a careful evaluation of the risks of an in-person experience related to COVID-19 and has made the difficult decision to change to a virtual experience for our 50th Camp Independence Anniversary.

 The most important factor in this decision is the health and wellbeing of our campers, our campers’ families and our staff.  

 We look forward to everyone's participation in a weeklong virtual program to celebrate and connect with one another for the 50th Golden Anniversary of Camp Independence.  

Plans are already underway for virtual camp so please save the date, August 16th to August 20th, 2021, for virtual Camp Independence. Additional details for virtual camp will be shared later.  

Stay Well and Stay Safe!
