WE ARE OPENING CAMP ON JULY 06 ON A MODIFIED BASIS

 

I want to be clear here.  We will do our best to provide as fun a summer program that we always do.  However, you know we will be facing challenges never before seen.  There will be limited programs, changes that may be made to the schedule on a daily or sometimes hourly basis.  There will be ALOT to adjust to so we are asking all our parents to please be patient and understanding.
