Dear Campers and Families,

The health and safety of campers is the top priority of the South Dakota Governor’s Camp.  Out of an abundance of caution due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 South Dakota Governor’s Camp.  We hope that this early notice gives campers and families ample time to adjust their summer plans.  As a result of this cancellation, scholarships will not be awarded this year and we encourage applicants to apply again next year.  Consistent with Ryzer’s refund policy, all participants will receive a full refund minus Ryzer’s processing fee.  If camp insurance was purchased, a separate refund from Allianz will be issued for the amount of your camp insurance plan.

We apologize for the inconvenience this cancellation may cause, but sincerely hope that your family stays safe and healthy.  If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.  We hope to see you next year at the 2021 South Dakota Governor’s Camp!


Branden Hoefert

Director, South Dakota Governor’s Camp
