BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — We’re not sure how a summer camp is calling itself “essential,” but BocaNewsNow.com is a big fan of camp so let’s go with it for now.
Eagles Landing — one of the major camps in the area — just sent out this email blast. We note that everything is subject to change, and the other major summer camps in the area — including American Heritage and St. Andrews — have not yet “officially” announced that all system are go.
Overnight camps in New England, Pennsylvania and throughout the Northeast have also not made “official” calls yet. We have reported — and as anyone who goes to or went to overnight camp appreciates — a forced closure for the summer could decimate the overnight camp “industry,” often run by families that have held camps for generations.
We are keeping a close eye on all summer camps — here’s the first official email so far. Again, this is from Eagles Landing Camp:
Based on the most recent CDC plan for reopening America and ELC being categorized as an “essential service”, Eagles Landing and the Night Owls will be open for the summer of 2020, as long as Florida moves into Phase Two.
Since the beginning of COVID 19, we have continued to prepare to open. Therefore, we are right on schedule, and excited that the summer is just seven weeks away. Our staff is primed, our parents will be relieved, and without question, our campers energized by this news.
Because of the remaining uncertainty for non-local sleepaway camps in the Carolinas and Northeast, we have received a much higher volume of interest for both our Day Camp and Night Owls programs. Many former Night Owl campers are deciding to stay home for the summer instead of going up north. Therefore, please do not hesitate to reach out or just enroll online as we only have a certain number of beds to offer. All enrollment is done through our website, www.KidsLoveELC.com.
Payment in full is usually due April 1. Due to the fluid situation, we will not be collecting final payments until we get closer to camp and there is full certainty. To enroll and hold a spot, we only need your application and a deposit. Please do not delay as, again, we only have a certain number of beds and spots available.
The Summer of 2020 is our 23rd, and we intend to make it one of the best for our ELC Family.
