Inclement Weather

Sometimes Old Man Winter likes to visit during Winter Camp!  Our first priority is for the safety of our campers and staff.  Camp Fire Camp Toccoa reserves the right to cancel or shorten Winter Camp in case of a weather related event which includes transporting campers back to Atlanta early.  As always, we ask that parents/guardians make arrangements in advance that their camper can be picked up at any time if need be.  We recognize that parents/guardians would need plenty of time in these situations and will make every effort to contact in advance. If Camp Fire Camp Toccoa shortens the camp, parents are responsible for picking up their camper in a timely manner. Refunds will only be given if Camp Fire Camp Toccoa cancels the event. If you have questions or concerns please reach out in advance.
