Coronavirus Update - May 25th, 2020

We hope everyone is continuing to be safe and healthy during this most challenging time. Hopefully, the light at the end of the tunnel is starting to shine a bit brighter.

On Friday May 22, Governor Wolf announced that all of the counties in our area are expected to move into the Yellow Phase on June 5, 2020. More specifically, he indicated that Day Camps will be allowed to open to provide essential childcare to help the economy re-open.

We now feel more confident that our 2020 season will take place as scheduled from June 22, 2020 through August 21, 2020. We are happy to have our government’s support and are excited that we will see our extended Anglewood family having Tons of Summer Fun in a few weeks.

Never-the-less, given the current environment and guidelines from the health department experts, the 2020 season will be challenging. In addition to our normal safe and fun program, we will be implementing all applicable health and safety guidelines and procedures to prevent the transmission of any pathogens. The collective guidance has become clearer and includes the following actions/changes:

• Face Masks
• Increased hand washing and personal cleanliness
• Daily screenings upon entry, including temperature checks
• Increased focus on waivers and health histories
• Additional facility cleaning and sanitation
• Smaller group sizes
• Activity adjustments to promote more social distancing
• Elimination of camp provided transportation

We are currently working with our staff of counselors and nurses to insure the best implementation of these guidelines. More specific information on new procedures and modified activities will be shared directly with registered camper families in the first week of June.

In the meantime, we’re looking forward to giving our campers a safe and fun summer at Anglewood. Stay Safe!

Coronavirus Update - April 30th, 2020

We are still planning to open camp on time. The first day will be June 22, 2020, Various states and localities are preparing to relax some social distancing guidelines. Target dates, mostly in May, to allow child care and related industries to re-open are being discussed. These developments are not definitive, but are favorable toward allowing us to open on June 22.
With this hope in mind, we are keeping the April 30 tuition due date. This will allow us to prepare staff levels & group assignments in a timely manner as well as institute all the new CDC, Health Department, and American Camping Association protocols necessary to keep campers, parents, and staff as safe as possible this summer. We would appreciate it if all of our camp families shared as much of their summer schedule with us as soon as possible and honor our tuition and preparation deadlines.

We hope that everyone is staying home, healthy, and safe during this challenging time. We are looking forward to the first day in June so we can all get back out of the house and have a safe and fun summer at camp.

Call or email us with questions. Stay tuned for more information.
