April Update #6

We hope you are having a good week and are enjoying the longer days and spring sunshine.

As your children move toward the end of school, we know you are continuing to look to the summer and to the impacts the coronavirus pandemic has had and will have on your summer planning.

We have yet to receive the specific guidance we anticipated having from the Colorado governor last week and from our county health department regarding our operational ability, so we continue to be in a holding pattern regarding our summer camp programming.

We understand that you are as hopeful as we are and some of you are willing to wait as long as possible to see if camp will be able to operate as planned. In this extended period of uncertainty, we also understand and know that some of you need to alter your summer plans as soon as possible to include family trips, local excursions and activities that fall within your local mandates. With that in mind, we will communicate a decision with you all next week once we have the updated guidelines from the CDC, State of Colorado and Teller County Health.

We have moved the first deadline for forms completion back to May 15th for web-based and parent completed forms. We will also adjust the required medical forms deadline as we learn more about any updated requirements.

As always, thank you for your support and patience.

Sincerely, Mark, Mike, Matty, Ariella & Elizabeth
