JUNE 8, 2020 UPDATE:
As of Friday morning we were in full swing gearing up for the 2020 season. With the release of the overnight camp guidelines from the state of NH Governors office Friday afternoon we realized very quickly that it would not be possible to run. We have provided a link below to the guidelines for any families interested in learning more about the specifics.
The mandatory testing of campers and staff that exhibit any one of these symptoms: fever, cough, fatigue, sore throat, body aches, vomiting, or diarrhea would be challenging enough let alone the subsequent isolation of that individual for 1-3 days while we awaited test results. During this time of year, seasonal allergies create an additional challenge in presenting many of the above mentioned symptoms and could result in daily tests for some children. In speaking with Marsha, the Director of Nursing at Camp Mi-Te-Na for over 15 seasons, she estimates we would need to test and isolate over 50 campers each day. With our facilities and infrastructure at each camp, unfortunately this would not be practical.
As a result, we made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 traditional overnight camp season in its entirety. Lauren Frazier, our registrar will be working to help each of you over the next few weeks. You will have some options with what to do with fees already paid to camp.
- You may receive a refund in full
- You could keep a credit on file with us to use towards other programs at The Granite YMCA (as they become available)
- You could also decide to make a donation to us as a non-profit to be used towards our capital campaign or a camper scholarship.
To our participants in the Counselor in Training Program, camp staff will be sending out additional communications to all of you this week to discuss options.
We can honestly say we did everything within our power to provide a safe camp experience this summer. The effort to problem solve, overcome obstacles, and essentially create a brand new camp model by our staff team over the last several months was truly inspiring. We would like to thank all of our camp families for staying with us through these trying times. We hope to see you all next year!
