Dear Members of the Purchase Day Camp Family,
I hope that everyone in your family and circle of friends are healthy and safe. From the coronavirus pandemic to the grocery store shortages to the confusing phased re-opening to the black lives matter protests, we have all been subject to a whirlwind of information and emotions over the last 100+ days.
The safety of our campers and staff have always been our first priority. Our second priority has always been providing a program that focuses on inclusivity, comradery and teamwork.
I know you have been waiting on a decision on our program for this summer. We received the camp reopening guidance from New York State last week. Since receiving this guidance, we have been working with our camp leadership TEAM to determine if and how camp could look this summer. To make a final decision, we need your help. There are some things we absolutely know, and I will outline them for you here. At the bottom is a link to a survey. Please click on that right now and answer the few questions. Your responses will guide us to determine what our program might look like this summer.
What We Know
- Camp will not be eight weeks this year, nor will camp be a full day program this year.
- If we have camp, it will likely start on July 13th and run through August 21st.
- If we have camp, we will offer a 9:00am to 12:30 program.
- The program would run for 3 sessions of 2 consecutive weeks each.
