COVID response: Currently, masks are optional for all campers and camp leaders in all NPS buildings, crowded outdoor spaces, and all forms of public transportation. The Tsongas Industrial History Center summer camps are subject to federal COVID regulations, therefore masking and distancing requirements may be altered if conditions change.
