SigmaCamp and COVID-19

SigmaCamp and COVID-19

The recent outbreak of novel coronavirus COVID-19 has disrupted international travel, events and programs worldwide and left many parents and students worried about the possibility of cancellation of summer programs such as SigmaCamp.

At the moment, we are expecting to operate the camp as scheduled. However, the situation is changing daily, and we are carefully monitoring all announcements and recommendations of Centers for Disease Control, Connecticut Department of Public Health, and other federal and state agencies. We will be posting updates on our web page.

Please note that in case of cancellation, SigmaCamp is not liable for any expenses incurred by the students or parents such as airline tickets, visa fees, or other expenses. A policy for reimbursement of tuition payment in case of cancellation will be posted by April 15th.
