Petra Cliffs Updates
This page will be continually updated. Last update: 5/29/20
On March 15, we announced that Petra Cliffs would temporarily close due to the outbreak of COVID-19. This was an incredibly difficult choice for us, but one that we felt was necessary to protect our staff and community. Our decision has been well received by our community, and we thank you for that. We will post updates here, but please feel free to reach out to us if you have questions that are not answered here.
We are planning for a "soft opening" for members as soon as our sector-specific "return to work" allows.
Summer camp is still on, with updates here on our SumMAT Camp Page. We are navigating the changes to what camp looks like this year; however, we see these as challenges, not barriers, and we're sure that we can bring our sense of adventure education to every day, no matter the conditions.
