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!
