It’s official — camp is ON this summer! We are excited to be offering Day Camp at the following locations. Registration is open and we have space available for remaining sessions for preschool and school age campers:
We have a new experience this summer, Summer Quest 2020, that is being offered at Carlson MetroCenter.
Camp will look different. We are making plans, reducing capacities and making adjustments daily based on direction from national, state and local leaders as to what the camp experience will look like. We continue to evaluate CDC and American Camp Association (ACA) guidelines and best practices to ensure we are able to provide a successful and enriching experience for children this summer.
The safety of children in our care and our employees drives all decision making. In this new world, we have made many hard decisions to ensure we can serve you and your child(ren) this summer.
Our staff is required to wear masks. Parents must wear masks when dropping off and picking up campers. We are following the Governor’s Reopen New York State guidelines (see below) for child care and day camp that states children are not required to wear face coverings. If parents would like their campers to wear a mask, we encourage them to have that conversation with their children. We have given each camper a buff (face covering) to wear to help eliminate any barriers should families want their kids wear a mask.
According to the Governor’s Reopen New York State guidelines: Young children/campers (i.e., those that are not yet in kindergarten) do not need to wear face coverings when they are in child care or day camp program facility or area. Older children/campers are encouraged but not required to wear face coverings as feasible. Face coverings should not be used by children under the age of 2, or for anyone who is unable to medically tolerate such covering, including children/campers for whom such covering would impair their health or mental health, or where such covering would present a challenge, distraction, or obstruction to the child care or day camp programs.
If you were registered for something that has been canceled, you will be contacted directly via email and provided alternative options.
We look forward to serving your child(ren) this summer. In this ever-evolving planning process full of unknowns, we continue our research, monitor the situation, and work in a leadership role alongside subject matter experts to ensure camp is the safest environment possible.
We thank you for your patience, your confidence and your support.
