It breaks our hearts, but, because of COVID-19, we are not able to safely welcome Foundation campers into the Canyon until then.
Yes. Please see our COVID-19 precautions above for more details. Don’t hesitate to email us with any questions.
Right now, we plan to start receiving groups again in August 2021. For 2021, the majority of our groups have been rebooked from 2020 cancellations due to COVID-19. Our registrar will reach out to these group leaders in early March and again in late May.
At this time, we don’t have any additional openings for Foundation Camp groups in 2021.
Unfortunately, the Canyon is closed to all unregistered visitors; this includes private day use and tours.
If you booked transportation already, we encourage you to reach out to the companies you used to book services. Unfortunately, the H. E. Butt Foundation can only provide reimbursement for our own programs.
After weighing guidance from the CDC and medical professionals, we chose to err on the side of safety. We cancelled to ensure the safety of our campers, staff, families, and communities.
In addition, Foundation Camp groups are responsible for cleaning camp in preparation for the next group. Given the cleaning requirements suggested by state and medical professionals, we did not feel this is a process that we could rely on during this time.
