Hey, Camp Fans.
Our nation is being tested and folks from all over have been compelled to close their doors in the summer season in order to take the precautions deemed necessary to keep everyone safe. Unfortunately, this summer season has seen a good amount of camp closures and, along with them, a lot of glum faces. Just like all of you, everyone here at Everything Summer Camp is deeply saddened that there are so many camps closing their doors for the 2020 season and that so many campers don’t get to have their summer camp experience this season.
While some of you may have attended camp this season, others were not so fortunate. To those of you who didn’t get to go to camp this year, know that you’re not alone. Today, we’re featuring one of the many summer camps who were closed for their normal camp season this summer—Camp Wise. Here’s the message from their website:
“It is with deep sadness that the Board and professional leadership of the Mandel JCC and Camp Wise have made the very painful and difficult decision to cancel our Camp Wise Summer 2020 season. After careful consideration and consultation with experts, it became increasingly clear that the risks to bringing our community together in-person this summer would be extraordinarily unique and challenging with no guarantee of the safety and well-being of anyone. Ultimately, the decision was made and founded upon one goal—to safeguard the health and wellbeing of everyone in our community…. In this unprecedented moment in time, we believe it is incumbent upon us to do what we ask our campers and staff to strive for every day each summer, which is to live by our Camp Wise values, even when it’s hard and involves sacrifice.”
Everything Summer Camp supports Camp Wise and we look forward to seeing their normal camp sessions return in 2021. We hope all you campers who had planned on a summer stay at Camp Wise are still able to get out into the wilderness for your own personal camping experience and, as always, thanks for reading.
