Hello Day Camp Families,

We appreciate your understanding and patience as we navigate the circumstances related to the Coronavirus. Based on the current updates from public officials we think it is unlikely Day Camp would be able to operate normally. While we identify with the schools, we also identify as a large event and believe we fall in the “stage 3” category right now. While Girl Scout Council has not made the decision yet about Volunteer Run Camps like ours, the Day Camp Committee decided to cancel camp because we are a large event, buses don’t allow social distancing and the volunteers who signed up might not be able to follow through on that commitment due to these unusual circumstances.

If it is safe to do so, we may try and have an optional Family Camp Experience hosted by Day Camp. This will allow social distancing, allow us to stay connected as a community and allow families to enjoy the beautiful Huddart Park. This plan identifies with “stage 2”, it is outdoor activities as a family in Huddart Park.

PLEASE let me know if you are interested in learning more about the Family Camp Experience by May 15th. Feel free to share this will other families in our community that might be interested in the Family Camp Experience, no Girl Scout memberships required. We are flexible and hoping to customize it for each family, spread the families out over the 2 weeks, provide programs for 1 or 2 days that works with your schedule for a modest fee that would be used to support Day Camp year-round costs. Showing interest will get you on the email list to learn more and in June we will be offering sign ups to the families.

We also need your help! Day Camp has fixed costs year-round. We are ALL volunteers but Day Camp has storage and maintenance fees. We are asking each family to decide if they can help support Day Camp during this difficult time but we understand it might be a difficult time for you as well. Your choice is confidential (only myself and our Business Manager will know) and if you would like to donate a portion of your camp fee, please let me know by Friday, May 8th.

After Friday, May 8th, we will start processing REFUNDS (full or minus a donation) to all current registrations. Please allow up to 30 days for us to process this, we never had to refund the entire camp and while we hope to through PayPal we might need to mail checks. We are still working out the details so please continue to be patient with us.

SAVE THE DATE: Camp 2021 will be July 12-16 and July 19-23! We will be working on Camp Adaptions to qualify as a stage 2 next year if needed.

We are very grateful for your support and participation in our community. We hope we get to see you all (at a distance) at the Family Camp Experience this Summer as well as next Summer!

In community and solidarity,
