YMCA Summer Day Camps

May 12, 2020 - Summer Day Camp Update

 

Dear YMCA Camp Families:
 
We hope that you and your family are healthy and safe. 
 
 Our staff have been hard at work navigating the Covid-19 pandemic and its effect on our work as a YMCA.  Heading into summer we are typically anxiously awaiting the arrival of our counselors with campers soon to follow, but the approach to this summer finds us in uncertain and challenging times.
 
Although it has been our hope and intent to operate our summer programs as we always have, we realize that adjustments may need to be made to our programs and schedules to keep our campers, staff and community safe.  It is not clear exactly what those changes may  be but we continue to work through scenarios based upon feedback from parents and recommendations from the CDC and State of Michigan Health officials.  
 
At this time we have suspended camp registrations until we can provide definitive program options to our families.  We will be sending and posting another update about the status of summer camp programs sometime later in May.  The American Camp Association and the CDC have partnered to provide specific recommendations and guidelines for both summer day and overnight camps and those guidelines are scheduled to be available later this month.
 
Once we review these recommendations we will update our camp families with our next course of action.  As this is a rapidly evolving situation, we feel that one of the most important things we can do right now is to remain adaptive and flexible. We anticipate that our specific plans will come into focus as we get closer to camp. We will let you know as soon as possible as new information becomes available that changes programs and schedules.
 
Thank you for your patience!
 
Your YMCA of Lansing Family
