With the state entering into Phase 2, a lot of our readers are asking about summer camps. What are the changes required by the government? What are the camps doing differently? Is it safe for my child to attend? These questions are all important, and we want to make sure you have all of the answers you are seeking before the first day of camp.
To make sure you and your child are prepared, we have asked our summer camp partners to join us in a free webinar to provide insight on how summer camps will reopen this summer. This will be a three-week series, beginning Tuesday, May 26, Tuesday, June 2 and Tuesday, June 9. All webinars will begin at 6:30 p.m.
To register for this free webinar, please use the link here or above. We look forward to hearing from you and answering all your questions regarding summer camp during a national pandemic.
