to The COVID-19 pandemic, I am spending a lot of time in webinars,
meetings and cohorts with the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention and the American Camping Association to get the most
up-to-date guidelines for summer camps. We are discussing everything
from screenings to touchless sign-in to group size to disinfecting
everything to safe distancing and much more. We want to make sure we
are doing everything we can to provide a safe, fun summer for our
campers, families and staff.
are some general changes for YADC and New Frontiers Day Camp that I
want parents to be aware of:
Are you still running YADC
and New Frontiers Day Camp?
the summer camp staff has been working very hard to make sure camp will
run safely beginning June 8, 2020 for both YADC and New Frontiers.
What if my child can no longer attend camp or we
do not feel safe sending our camper?
Any parents who do not feel comfortable sending
their campers who already registered for YADC or New Frontiers Day Camp
must e-mail me by
Friday, May 29, 2020 to get a full refund.
Spots for both New Frontiers and YADC are limited and once you cancel
your spot(s) will be released. If you do not submit a cancellation
request two weeks prior to your registered week, our cancellation
policy will be used.
Will campers still be going
on field trips?
Due to the local busing company not providing
transportation for the month of June and public entertainment being
closed, our June field trips have been changed to guest
speakers/entertainers coming to the YMCA. That schedule is still being
finalized and will be sent out once confirmed.
How will New Frontiers
campers get to the farm?
With our local busing company not providing
transportation for the month of June, we are limiting the number of
campers to 24 each week and will be busing them out to camp using YMCA
transportation. We are looking into an option for on-site drop off for
those parents who have means to do so, but at the moment you will see a
limited number of spots for New Frontiers so we can provide transportation
safely to and from camp each day.
want to thank all of our summer camp parents and campers for choosing
the Carlisle Family YMCA. I am dedicated to providing a safe summer for
our campers and staff. I know how important friends and outdoor play
are and want to provide camp this summer in a way that is safe for
everyone. Please feel free to e-mail
me with any questions.
