It is with open arms that I welcome 2021. I feel as if this last year has been a decade long and I embrace 2021 with outstretched arms. I am filled with excitement at the possibility of a normal summer for kids.
I have spoken to many parents over the last few weeks and they are surprised to learn that some camps ran last summer and that they were hugely successful. I can hear the excitement in their voice as we begin to discuss the kinds of programs that they want for next summer. They know the importance of being unplugged, being outside, and spending time with friends. Everyone needs a sense of normal now. Directors have spent hours and hours learning about best practices as related to Covid-19 and they are enthusiastic and well- prepared to welcome campers.
The door to normal is slowly opening and many families want to go through. They are ready to “step outside the box” that has been home. Hindsight is said to be 2020……. It is the past – I look forward to a bright future.
Happy camping in 2021!
