Over the past couple of months we have seen a lot of change and we have all had to make adjustments that we probably never expected. We have heard from so many parents about how much they want camp to happen this summer and how much their child needs FLC more than ever this year. We are pleased to share with you our plan to offer a 5 week summer beginning on July 11th that balances the health and safety of our campers and their families while providing an amazing summer at FLC. The 5 week summer also allows us to move forward confidently with our plan for Family Camp and our USHThis camp to begin as scheduled on August 15th.
We are making this decision now to provide us with the time we need to make camp the safest possible place for your child. The extra weeks mean extra time for our staff to isolate before campers arrive, time to procure the necessary PPE and equipment, and to make the changes around camp that we feel are required. We still await the guidance from the CDC and American Camp Association and the State of New York still needs to announce its plans for opening, but have begun our own preparations preemptively with outlines of safety plans soon to be reviewed by our Medical Advisory Board.
In the next 48 hours we will be sending out another message detailing the session dates, tuition adjustments and specifics surrounding this change to 5 weeks. We are also going to be reaching our families in the coming days to check in and discuss what this summer will look like. We will begin those communications with those families most affected by the schedule change. Even with our new camp start date of July 11th, we are still beholden to the timeline and decisions made by the state and local authorities. We will continue to monitor the information from the government and update you on any adjustments that need to be made.
We are filled with hope for the summer and confident that the change to 5 weeks brings us another step closer to making camp possible. Making this decision now is allowing us to be excited about the amazing and safe summer to come at FLC. Please reach out to [email protected] with any questions.
